New this week Continuity mistake: When Glenn is with Tera and getting ready to move out, he puts on his helmet and you can see it is strapped on. When the shot changes, he swings the fence open and you can see his strap is lose. The camera angle changes again and the strap is back on again.
New this month Factual error: In the scene where Rick has given Andrea his revolver to end her life, he leaves the room with the others to leave Andrea and Michonne alone. The next thing you see is Rick, Tyrese and Darryl waiting outside the room. You hear the gun go off and then you hear a shell casing hit the floor. Revolvers do not eject a shell casing.
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 tattoos on his right side, but as he walks away he suddenly has the tattoos on his left side not his right side as in the previous shot.
Visible crew/equipment: Governor is 'interrogating' Michonne privately about staying at Woodbury to "join his forces." As he mentions Merle's name, she suddenly reacts, grabbing her sword from him, and shoves it at his throat, threateningly. During this, the shadow from the boom mic is visible just above his head.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Factual error: Ten minutes into the episode, where they're setting up their police-blockade, a cop makes a remark about being in some TV-show when Rick Grimes replies with: "Make sure you've got a round in the chamber and your safety off". Next we see the first cop checking his gun (a Glock) for a round in the chamber and we see him flicking his thumb across the gun's slide catch: not a safety-lever. Glocks don't have an external safety, so the cop cannot flick a safety-lever like in the episode.
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: 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.
