Season 1 generally

Plot hole: It's been established that if you die on the property, you remain as a ghost for all of eternity. However, in Season 8, Moira's bones are retrieved and buried in a cemetery so that her ghost can escape and join her mother. However not all the ghost's bones are buried on the property, we know for sure that the Black Dahlia was not buried on the property and it's not likely Tate, Vivian, Ben or some of the others are buried on the property as well so they should not be tied to the house.

Afterbirth - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Stacy and Miguel (the new owners of the house), are making out in the kitchen, her shirt goes from off her shoulders to back on her shoulders across several shots.

Afterbirth - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Vivien and the maid are sitting in the kitchen, one shot shows the maid from the side with her hands in front of her on the table. The shot changes and instantly her hands are holding a coffee mug in front of her lips.

Piggy Piggy - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: The people that Tate murders at school have different wound patterns. Episode 5 they say what Tate did to them, episode 6 shows the attack. Episode 5 the goth girl says Tate asked her if she believed in God before shooting her - episode 6 he asked her nothing, instead just shot her. Episode 5, the guy in the letterman jacket illustrates his wound to be a single round to the head - episode 6 he shoots the letterman with a shotgun in the chest, not a handgun to the head. Episode 5 the cheerleader shows no apparent wounds of being shot - episode 6 Tate shoots her in the face with a shotgun.

Show Stoppers - S4-E12

Trivia: They pay homage to the original 1932 movie Freaks. In Freaks, Cleopatra gets mutilated and turned into a tarred and feathered bird for visitors to gawk at in terror. Hercules gets viciously attacked under the carnival vehicle. In this episode, Stanley gets cornered by all the freaks under the carnival vehicle and gets viciously attacked and mutilated to resemble Meep (a feathered freak who was killed by the cops in an earlier episode).

Halloween: Part 1 - S1-E4

Question: One thing I do not understand is this... "if" the souls of the deceased (that die within the walls of "Murder House") are trapped there for eternity then how does the maid get to go see her mother (obviously off premises) and Tate get to meet up with Dr. Harmon for coffee for his appointment?

Chosen answer: Because on Halloween, the souls of The Dead are said to roam the Earth. That includes those souls that are trapped within the walls of the "Murder House".
