Andare Pescare - S5-E9

Corrected entry: When Gemma hands Nero Carla's ashes, the box appears to be empty. Nero proves this by flicking the box and acting like, is there anything in it? When a person is cremated, the ashes weigh at least 5 pounds. They carry it like there's nothing in it.


Correction: 5lbs isn't that heavy if you're strong. I work in shipping and boxes weighing 5lbs practically feel like nothing, because I'm used to handling much heavier things. Nero's a strong guy and may have expected the box to weigh more than it did.

Correction: My point is the box appears to have nothing in it! I have my fathers ashes and they aren't light so I know what I'm talking about. The box obviously is empty.


Sorry, but you've only demonstrated that a box of human ashes in your own hands doesn't feel light. What feels heavy to you isn't necessarily true for others. You said yourself that a box of human ashes weighs around 5 lbs. Most adults of either gender would find that to be lightweight. I can lift a 5 lb. Box with my thumb, index and middle fingers, provided that the box is relatively small in its dimensions, and I'm an ectomorph. If you were trying to prove in a court of law that the box was empty and all you had to go on was the video clip and your own anecdotal evidence, you would not meet the burden of proof.

Correction: My point is human ashes aren't light and you can plainly tell the box is empty.


You can't see inside the box though, so you can't definitively say that it is empty. It would be one thing if the box was supposed to weigh 25 lbs or so, but 5 lbs isn't even heavy, especially to someone like Jimmy Smits who is 6'-3" and over 200 lbs.

The Sleep of Babies - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Tig thinks it's Opie driving the truck. Problem: When Donna stops at the stop sign, Tig has a clear view of the driver. Also, when he pulls up behind her, it's obvious that Donna is much shorter than Opie and isn't wearing a hat like Opie always does. Tig doesn't realize it's Donna until he pulls up beside her.


Correction: After he kills Donna he meets with Clay and tells him about Opie saving his life in the warehouse. He says he didn't know if he could kill Opie so he was afraid and didn't look when he shot. And he didn't know it was Donna.

To Be, Act 1 - S4-E13

Corrected entry: Jacks tells Happy to take Tacoma up to the gun warehouse. Tacoma died several episodes earlier by stepping on a land mine. (00:29:05)

Correction: Tacoma is another Charter out of Washington. Herman Kozik played by Kenny Johnson was the one who died stepping on the mine.

Falx Cerebri - S2-E6

Corrected entry: Gemma gives Tara a .38 gun which holds 6 rounds in the chamber. She is practicing shooting at a target and fires 5 rounds. When she points the gun at Ima, the chamber still has 6 rounds in it. There should only be one round left.


Correction: Revolvers don't eject shell casings automatically and are still left in the chamber, which is what we see. 5 empty shells and 1 round.

Correction: I have just watched this scene. You cannot see the bullets, only the casings are visible as the view is from behind the gun. The initial response to this mistake is correct.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Tara is about 2 months pregnant when Jax goes to prison for 14 months. The baby looks to be 6 months old, although he should be 12 months old. Same goes for Abel. He's younger than he should be for the amount of time that has passed since he was born.


Correction: 2 months pregnant so still 7 months to go. 14 - 7 = 7 months old, which makes the baby about the right age.

Bainne - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Jax is watching the couple with Abel, the father puts money in a homeless woman's bag. This is the same woman Gemma gave money to in Charming. So how did she get to Belfast, Ireland?


Correction: This isn't a mistake. This is the mystery women who shows up throughout the movie. Who has been explained as everything from an angel to a devil. It's part of the story.

The Pull - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Jax goes to see the truck driver in the hospital, he's in a gown with blood all over it and blood on his face. The doctors would clean a patient up and certainly don't make a patient wear a bloody hospital gown.


Correction: Just before Jax goes into the hospital room he sees two guys leaving. They had just been in the room and beat the guy up. That's why he's covered in blood.

Correction: Gemma pushes the door open to allow Opie in, he pulls it shut. That's normally how hinged doors work. There is no mistake here whatsoever. What exactly, is facing out of the house?

"Facing out of the house" is exactly as it sounds, and what is seen, a door that opens outward. But the correction is correct. She never opens the door inward. It's a side or back door that opens out, unlike a front door that opens inwards.


Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Wendy has Jax's baby 10 weeks early. When the baby is shown in the NICU, it's very obviously a doll. No movement, nothing.

Correction: Tara tells Jax that Abel is 10 weeks premature, and he's seen three times during this episode. The first time is after Jax exits the hospital, and we do see Abel's movements in the incubator. The second and third time we see this tiny preterm baby are right before and after his open heart surgery, and Abel is sedated and intubated, so of course he's not moving. There is absolutely nothing obvious which actually reveals to viewers that Abel is only a doll.

Orca Shrugged - S5-E5

Corrected entry: When the fat insurance guy wakes up from being drugged, he bites Tig on the butt. There's no way a person can bite through a pair of jeans. It shows the wound and there's a tear in them and blood. It looks as though a dog bit him, not a person.


Correction: Yes A human CAN bite through denim, hell they can bite through cartilage and bone. Ie: ears noses etc. depending on bite strength. Remember the guy was drugged, woke up confused and scared so adrenaline is pumping too.

Call of Duty - S4-E11

Corrected entry: Kozic gets blown up by a landmine. Later at the club, they have his jacket he had on. There's no possible way the jacket would still be untouched like nothing ever happened. He was blown to pieces but the jacket is complete and undamaged.


Correction: In this episode Kozik wasn't wearing his club jacket when he got blown up.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: A BMW is towed to the shop with a buck (male deer) implanted through the windshield - the back half protrudes from the hole in the glass. An employee uses a chainsaw to remove the carcass in pieces. Later, the head of the buck is pulled from a box, and is seen to still have its sizable antlers. These antlers would not have remained attached as the head passed through the windshield - they would have snapped off. And even if they had not broken off, the windshield's damage would have been significantly different to account for the antlers passing through it.


Correction: I would hardly call the buck's antlers "sizable" (having only 4-points and being narrow). They certainly wouldn't have broken off, and you can see the buck's body is wider than the antlers, so the hole size and damage in the windshield is based on the body, not the antlers.


Greensleeves - S7-E7

Corrected entry: SAMCRO knows full well that they are going to let Jax "escape" and not send him to meet Mr Mayhem, so what was the point of showing the vote for him to meet Mr Mayhem? It seems as this scene is only included to fool the audience. Some have said they still have to have a vote so they don't lie to the other charters about it, but it would seem its worse to lie about the actual attempt on killing Jax.

Correction: They didn't have a vote to prevent themselves from lying, they had a vote because it is tradition. It is part of being in the club.


Black Widower - S7-E1

Corrected entry: Jax pulls out 2 of another prisoner's teeth. You can't just put a handkerchief on your hand and pull out someone's teeth. Jax makes it look so easy. Your teeth don't just come out with a simple yank.


Correction: Jax has just finished beating the guy and it is highly likely the teeth have been loosened.

Black Widower - S7-E1

Corrected entry: When Jax is driving him and Gemma back from the county jail, Jax holds Gemma's hand in the car. The position of the transmission shifter is in the forward position - 'Park', showing the car is on a trailer for filming. (00:20:10)

Correction: There is no way to tell the shifter is in 'Park' since only the top part is seen/showing. This is just a guess. Although, from the looks of the top of the shifter, being aligned with the steering wheel and not further over to the right, it looks to be in 'Drive'.


Correction: Unless you can provide a specific example, I think you're misreading it. The doors have "DN" on them, which stands for "Diosa Norte." The font may just look like "in."


Correction: Abel is not the one who is crying. Abel was trying to sleep, although we do see him rub his face. It was in fact Thomas, the baby, crying. This is why Tara leaves the room in the first place, so Thomas's crying doesn't wake up Abel. We know it's Thomas crying because he cries at the very end too, when outside, and it's the same crying we heard earlier, with the subtitle "Thomas crying" once again.


Correction: Wade Steiner - TM mechanic hit by home invasion that Under is interviewing in the garage. Gemma says "why you chatting up Wade?"

Correction: Wade was the name of the person Wayne was talking to.

Correction: Just watched this scene again and all I can hear is "Wayne." Why would a character get another character's name wrong 5 seasons in? The subtitles you're using are incorrect.


Wade was the name of the person Wayne was talking to. Earlier in the ep. Roosevelt is heard telling the club this name as one of the people who got hit with a home invasion.

Giving Back - S1-E5

Question: In this episode, the guy is punished by SAMCRO for not having his biker ink covered up. Also, Clay had to have his covered in (I think) season 5 or 6 when he left. Why was Opie allowed to keep his though? He had effectively left yet in this episode he is topless and all his ink is showing. Why did he not need his covered when he left the gang?


Chosen answer: Former members only have to have their tattoos covered up if they are voted out of the club.
