New this month Continuity mistake: Carol's head wrap is well intact as she and T-Dog find escape down a hallway during the alarm system chaos. Soon they run into another pack of Walkers, and he sacrifices himself in order to save her life. As she runs past him, and toward another escape door, her head wrap is still intact as she opens the door and runs off. Later, when Rick and Daryl happen upon that same hallway, and T-Dog's remains, Daryl glances downward, however, and picks up the same head wrap, now covered in blood, alongside her bloodied knife.
New this month Other mistake: As Daryl carries a saddle toward the barn, in the far shot, there is no one around. The shot then changes to him entering the barn carrying the saddle inside. Suddenly we now see Carol coming around the corner, several yards behind him. Where did she come from? Unless she was already inside next door and saw him enter, she shouldn't have been there.
New this month Continuity mistake: As Daryl and Shane argue near the start, Daryl's movements don't correspond with the changing shots: one moment he is standing in front of Carol, then he is standing by her, then he has moved closer to Rick - all within the same one-liners. As his argument with Shane grows, he again is standing by Carol, or closer, near Rick. At one point, a shot shows Daryl about to lounge at Shane, as Rick blocks him, but the very next shot shows him right next to Carol, who at that point would have been standing behind Rick.
New this month Continuity mistake: After Carol tells Shane they are not leaving without finding Sophia, Daryl enters and reminds Shane about the doll he found down at the swamp earlier, and they start to argue. During this he crosses front to Carol's right. In the very next shot Daryl is suddenly shown standing in the same spot as prior, next to Carol.
New this month Continuity mistake: In a far shot we see Daryl heading toward the barn alone, in the broad daylight, carrying a horse saddle. Only hay bales and some farm equipment occupy the area. In the next medium shot he enters the stables carrying the saddle and prepares to set it down. Suddenly from around the outside corner Carol approaches. Due to the distance and timing this is impossible. We would have seen her either coming around the far side of the barn or at least some distance behind Daryl from his far shot earlier.
New this month Continuity mistake: Deleted footage/special release only: Carol confronts Daryl about the boy being held hostage inside the barn (following Sophia's death), reasoning with him about pretending not to care when he truly does. At one point he moves to her, almost in her face. However, the following shot shows only a close up of Carol, implying they are standing feet apart, which is not the case.
Continuity mistake: After the part where Merle and Daryl save the people on the bridge, Merle gets agitated at Daryl and grabs him and rips his shirt. On the left side of Daryl's back, he has no tattoos, but as he walks away he suddenly has a couple of tattoos exactly in the spot where didn't before.
Revealing mistake: Merle is sitting in a chair and talking with Michonne and Andrea. At one point he takes off the prosthetic on his right arm to show them what used to be his hand (it's only a nub now), but shortly afterwards you can see his right hand in a fist as he puts the prosthetic back on.
Audio problem: When Rick and his 'strike force' hole up in the cabin surrounded by walkers. They arouse the cabin's owner who brandishes a double-barrel, breech breaking shotgun. When characters brandish pump action shotguns, often they pump a round for effect and the sound effect is characteristic. The pump action sound effect is erroneously applied to the breech breaking double barrel shotgun.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Merle is the in big box late 80's chevy with big 20-22 inch rims he is shown driving it in the barn yard drinking, playing music, and zombies following him. The shot changes a few times within the same scene with the big rims on, in one shot the car is shown with him driving it but the stock rims (15") are on the car, the paint of the car looks a little darker too. Then the shot changes again while he is still driving it and the big rims are on the chevy again. The shot that shows the stock rims is a pretty fast shot so it could be easy to miss.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene of the episode, Rick and Hershel are talking while looking out over the prison yard. Near the end of the conversation, Rick squarely faces Hershel and says "I'm hoping you could talk me out of it." The camera then changes to Hershel, and Rick is now immediately facing 90° to his left looking over the yard. When the camera changes back to Rick, he is now looking directly at Hershel.
Continuity mistake: When helping the foreign family to fight off the walkers, Daryl pulls the zombie back into the car and slams its head in the boot door, covering his hands in blood in the process. However, for the rest of the scenes in the episode and in shots directly afterwards, his hands appear totally clean without him doing anything to clean them.
Continuity mistake: In Season 2 episode 7, "Pretty Much Dead Already," at the end where Rick shoots the walker Sophia, she falls to her right. In the next episode, "Nebraska," picking up immediately after the last, she is in an entirely different position, as if she fell forward.
