  • Goof (continuity error): Through most of the episode Reese has a bandage on his right hand. In the court house while he talks to Finch, the bandage is on his left hand. Then it's back on his right for the rest of the episode.
  • Goof (continuity error): When Reese is trying to intercept the bad guys car, their car on the map is going north, and Reese's taxi is going west. This means the bad guys should be coming from Reese's left. But when he stops them they're coming from his right.

  • Goof (factual errors): There were several errors in references to credit scores. One said the perpetrator did not have credit scores "before 1988"...nobody did. Credit Scores were introduced in August of 1988 to all three bureaus. A couple of other references listed "scores going back to..."..First of all it is a common misconception that we all have scores that are attached to our files. Instead a score is determined every time a file is accessed, provided only to that person...and not recorded. Even if it was possible to track scores back to 1988, the bureaus backed up their archive data bases on tape until the mid 1990's..so there is not even a record "online" of a person's credit report as it may have appeared in 1988.

  • Goof (miscellaneous): Throughout the show, but also in this episode, we can see totally wrong IP addresses. When Finch is tracing the Trojan horse of the tracker we see "Accessing network on IP 623.". This is totally wrong format of IP address and is kinda irritating, because most of the technical stuff in the show is on level, but this seems to be totally overlooked. IP addresses contain 4 number groups, separated by dot ("."). Each number is between 0 and 255. So a valid IP would be for example The producers could use some invalid IP address (like the 555 phones) not to mess with real ones, but should at least use the correct format.

  • Goof (continuity error): When Finch has activated the program that blocks all unauthorized access to the cell phone towers it is stated that only one number is authorized.
