Continuity 

Katie calls and leaves a message on her neighbor's answering machine while at work at Ivan's on a Monday (according to the answering machine). When Kevin calls Ivan's and listens to the recording, it states that Ivan's is open Tuesday to Sunday, meaning it is closed on Monday.
Katie/Erin manages to shoot her husband in the struggle and he dies on top of her, but when she gets up and runs over to Lexie and Alex, there is no blood or gore on her at all.
After Katie and Alex get caught in the rain storm and go into the restaurant, Katie's face is instantly dry and her makeup hasn't been affected at all. Her hair appears to be freshly combed as well and looks dramatically different from when they first walked in the door.

The "Atlanta" bus number keeps changing. When first seen, it is a four digit number. When Katie gets off in Southport, it is bus number 169. And when Kevin sees it on the security camera tapes, it is a four digit number, and although we can only see the bottoms of the digits, the last two are "55".
