Game of Thrones

The Bells - S8-E5

New this month Deliberate mistake: During the "previously on Game of Thrones" snippets, before the opening credits sequence, there are two flipped shots of Sansa and Jaime as she tells him that she has always wanted to be there for Cersei's execution, but she won't get the chance. (00:01:45)

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

New this month Continuity mistake: When Grey Worm leads Tyrion to the Dragonpit, as they pass the column of Unsullied their long individual shadows are directly to their sides, but in the next shot the Unsullied are seen in the background and the shadows are entirely different. (00:46:00)

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Other mistake: As the surviving characters discuss the fate of Westeros, 2 plastic water bottles can be seen tucked behind the chairs they're sitting on.

The Last Of The Starks - S8-E4

Other mistake: During the scene in the banquet hall, as Tormund says "most people get bloody murdered, they stay that way", look at Daenerys in the background - a disposable coffee cup is on the table in front of her. This brown cup with a white plastic lid is nothing remotely like the style of cups they're all drinking from in the scene. HBO acknowledged the slip up and digitally edited it out on streaming services, reruns and future DVD releases.

The Last Of The Starks - S8-E4

Character mistake: Gendry gets declared as Lord Gendry Baratheon of Storm's End by Daenerys. But he refers to himself as Gendry Rivers - the surname given to bastards from the Riverlands. Gendry comes from King's Landing, and bastards from there are called Waters, not Rivers. Given that Gendry is not an acknowledged highborn bastard, he should never have had a surname in the first place.

The Last Of The Starks - S8-E4

Other mistake: The dragon is shot down by three giant arrows, and everyone looks shocked, with no idea where the attack came from, even Daenerys, who's flying high alongside it. Then the enemy fleet rounds a small outcrop, revealing themselves as the attackers, but given her height she would have seen them a mile off and steered well clear.

The Last Of The Starks - S8-E4

Revealing mistake: At the beginning when all the dead are burned, we see a close up shot of a dead guy still breathing.

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When the episode starts Arya is walking towards where Daenerys is and has her face covered in mud and soot, plus a long streak of dark dry blood running through the right side of her face. The next time we see her her face is cleaner and the blood is less noticeable. In further shots the amount of blood increases or decreases randomly. There doesn't seem to be much water and soap around the place.

The Last Of The Starks - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Kings Landing is shown as sitting on flat, plain-like terrain. In previous seasons, it was shown surrounded by water and mountains covered lush greenery.

The Last Of The Starks - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When Sansa puts the Stark pendant on dead Theon she only puts it through one leather strap, then when it cuts it's through two straps. (00:05:15)

No One - S6-E8

Other mistake: The faith militant attacks Gregor Clegane. Gregor chokes him. You will see that before the faith militant drops his weapon with his left hand, both of his hands are already holding Gregor's massive arm. (00:13:05)

Battle of the Bastards - S6-E9

Revealing mistake: When Jon Snow jumps on the horse his steel sword wobbles back and forth revealing it's made of rubber.

Winterfell - S8-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After Sansa tells young Ned Umber to hurry back to Last Hearth and bring his people to Winterfell, when Jon tells Maester Wolkan to send ravens to the Night's Watch, in the next shot of Wolkan the chalk T-mark can be seen on the stone floor in front of his feet (it's not the stone's edges or cracks). (00:11:20)

The Ghost of Harrenhal - S2-E5

Character mistake: When Renly and Catelyn are negotiating the terms of Renly's alliance with Robb, Renly calls Moat Cailin "Moat Caitlin." As someone who served as Master of Laws on King Robert's Small Council, he should know the correct name of the territory he is referring to.

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: Arya was last seen riding a horse out of King's Landing at the end of the previous episode. But at the beginning of this one she is suddenly back in the city again, wandering around on foot.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This episode doesn't continue in the very same spot that the previous ended, so there was enough time for Arya to step off the horse and walk around the ruins.

The Prince of Winterfell - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tyrion and Cersei are talking about sending Joffrey to the battlefield, Tyrion removes his cloth napkin from his shirt twice. (01:18:50)

The Gift - S5-E7

Deliberate mistake: After Ramsey shows Sansa her flayed northern friend, when it cuts to Davos riding the horse through the encampment one of the shots is flipped. Note his sword and his cloak's crossed straps have switched to opposite sides.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Gendry gives Arya the dragonglass weapon that he made for her, in the following shots Gendry's leather cloak straps switch between being crossed with his left strap over the right strap, or his right strap over the left strap. (00:43:00)

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: During the battle strategy meeting around the table, Sansa wears the long silver chain and circle neckwear, and the long chain changes the way it is placed through the circle. Sansa's chain is put through the circle in a way that's over and under in most shots, but when Jon explains that if the dragons are in the field they won't be able to protect Bran, the long chain is put through the circle the opposite way, under and over. (00:30:05)

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: During the meeting at the Dragonpit, Sansa is wearing her long silver chain and circle neckwear, with the long chain changing the way it is placed through the circle. First the chain is put through the circle in a way that's over and under, but in some shots the chain is put through the circle the opposite way, under and over. (00:53:10)

Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things - S1-E4

Daenerys Targaryen: If you ever lay a hand on me again, it'll be the last time you have hands.

A Golden Crown - S1-E6

Trivia: The horse heart that Daenerys eats was actually made of gelatin, and genuinely tasted dreadful - her physical revulsion at eating it is real. It had dyed pasta to simulate veins, and was injected with fake sugary blood, which attracted flies. The blood was so sticky and ended up covering Emilia Clarke to such an extent that after filming it glued her to the toilet seat.
