Errors in geography 

When Claire is showing Peyton to her room in the basement, she points towards the laundry room to the right. However, when she's folding laundry and looking out the window at Solomon and Emma playing in the yard, she's doing laundry in the garage. You can see the garage structure when they pan the yard for that scene.

Factual errors 

What Claire has isn't asthma it is actually panic attacks. Asthma attacks are not brought on by sudden stress or anxiety, they are brought on by bacterial, infection, stuff of that nature. You can tell with how quickly she is breathing during her "asthma" attack that it is a panic attack and not an asthma attack.

Plot holes 

When Peyton rips up Micheal's report in the restroom, she then beats the walls of the stall with a plunger until she breaks the head off. This tantrum and noise would be clearly heard in a greenhouse.
