I'm getting very annoyed at the rate where the word "discontinuity" is
being thrown around. True, the show is made by human beings and we have
a thousand-odd folks watching it six times in slow motion frame-by-frame,
so naturally some minor screwups will be found. But 99% of the time
(and this goes for anyone, I'm not picking on Julie here) there was
no discontinuity or error at all, you simply missed something, or
there's a way to interpret what you saw that makes perfect sense.

I seriously doubt it. At the time, Leland was completely flipped,
and Sara only knows that she's had a vision, not that the man in her
vision is the killer. Sarah never says "I know who Laura's killer
is, I saw him in my vision".

You're assuming a lot here -- for one thing, that Sarah knows who the
kill is, two, that Leland believes her and places more weight on that
than that the sheriff and Truman have arrested a suspect, etc, etc.
SARAH doesn't know that BOB is the killer.
