The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: There's a flashback to the life of young Pinocchio, played by brown-eyed Jakob Davies. But adult Pinocchio, Eion Bailey, has striking bright-blue eyes. It's possible that a blue-eyed child may grow up to have brown eyes, but the opposite does not happen.

The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Emma and August are walking down the street in the morning, as he says "Take the day off. Come with me, and I'll show you", behind them, a man and a woman can be seen crossing the street. In the next shot, the exact same couple crosses the street again. (00:01:50)

The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Pinocchio takes baby Emma in his arms, in the first shot, her baby blanket is wrapped tight around her. In the next shot, it is wrapped in a completely different way, less tight, with huge folds and the purple bands are tied up differently. In the next shot, the blanket is tightly wrapped around her again. In addition, when Pinocchio finds Emma inside the tree trunk, the way the blanket is wrapped around the baby is different from the way it was when Charming sent her through the magical wardrobe in "Pilot." (00:29:50)

The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: In Pinocchio's home, when Jiminy Cricket pops out of the cuckoo clock, a navy officer doll can be seen sitting on a table as Geppetto goes to release the cricket. In the first shot, the doll is perpendicular to the chair next to the table, but when Jiminy says, "It's okay. He meant no harm", the doll has turned around 90° and is parallel to the chair. After the Blue Fairy shows up, the doll is back to its original position. (00:12:30)

The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Emma and August are walking down the streets of Storybrooke in the morning, in the first shot, they are walking past Storybrooke Dental. Cuts to another shot, and they are now walking next to the Clock Tower building. As the shot ends, they are walking past a window covered in newspapers. In the next shot, they walk past the very same window again. Cuts to another shot, and they have suddenly walked past the building as they are crossing the street. (00:01:20)

The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When David is having dinner with Regina, as Regina says "How did you like it?" her left hand is lying on the table. In the next shot, her hand is under her chin. (00:20:55)

The Stranger - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When David is carrying Regina's groceries, there's a plastic bread bag sticking out of one of the grocery bags. The amount of plastic sticking up repeatedly changes between shots. (00:15:45)

The Evil Queen - S2-E20

Cora: Love is weakness. It feels real now, at the start it always does, but it's an illusion. It fades and then you're left with nothing!

Show generally

Question: I know Henry found Emma via credit card and a website. How did he know to look for her? Regina is strict and it was a closed adoption.

Answer: He knows who she is because he knows that the fairy tales are true. He was also shown to sneak out to go see Emma or someone else. Sometimes he succeeded, sometimes he didn't. This is how he knew to look for her despite his strict mother.
