Once Upon a Time

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Sidney's newspaper article in 1-8 "Desperate Souls" stated that Emma was arrested in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1996. However, this is directly contradicted in this episode, which shows that Emma was actually arrested in Portland, eleven years before the frame story, meaning that the arrest took place in 2001 (since "Selfless, Brave and True" establishes that Emma arrived in Storybrooke in October 2011, and the frame story of "Tallahassee" takes place a few months later, in 2012; the year 2001 is confirmed in 3-22 "There's No Place Like Home").

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In the giant's treasure room, there are many giant gold coins near the skeleton of Jack the Giant Killer. The amount and position of the coins repeatedly changes. For example, when they find the skeleton, there are several coins on the edge of a small dais, but when Emma saves Hook from the trip wire, they are missing. (00:24:40)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Emma is arrested, she has a flower tattoo on her left wrist. When she's climbing the beanstalk with Hook, in a few shots, her wrist is bare, and you can see that the tattoo is missing; this happens, for example, when she remarks, "You should be used to people not trusting you."

Revealing mistake: When Hook and Emma are climbing up the beanstalk, as Hook remarks, "First beanstalk?", you can see that Colin O'Donoghue is actually gripping the vine with his left hand, which is covered up by his sleeve; the hand that was cut off. (00:08:50)

Revealing mistake: When Neal is being chased by August, he runs on top of a car before attempting to jump the fence. Just before he jumps on top of the car, you can see that the one who actually performs this action is Michael Raymond James' stunt double. (00:26:40)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Hook and Emma find the skeleton of Jack the Giant Killer, in the close-up shot, Jack's sword is in the skeleton's hand. When Emma remarks, "With that toothpick?", the sword is lying beside the hand. When Emma grabs the sword while being chased by the giant, the sword is back in Jack's hand. In addition, the skeleton's arm alternates between being bent and sticking straight out between shots. (00:23:15)

Continuity mistake: When Emma cuts the trip wire in Anton's castle, the surroundings change completely between shots; for example, as she cuts the wire, there is an open chest near her. In the overhead shots, the chest is gone, and Jack's skeleton is missing. (00:33:50)

Tallahassee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: As Snow and Mulan fight, Snow's pink cardigan gets covered in straws. The amount and position of the straws keep changing during the fight, and afterwards. Also, when Snow tackles Mulan, in the first close-up of them fighting, you can see straws from previous takes on Snow's cardigan, even though she has not come into contact with the ground yet, and the cardigan was perfectly clean in the previous shots.

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!
