Revealing mistake: When Jake is driving Andrew to Melanie at the battlesite, Jake is driving with the truck in the park position. (01:11:00)

Revealing mistake: When Reese is leaving the dog cemetery, she brushes against one of the tombstones that has a stone dog on the top of it, yet as she walks past the dog begins to rock back and forth - clearly this is not a stone headstone. Pet cemeteries, just like human, have sturdy stone headstones to withstand the elements, not plastic. (01:06:40)

Question: In the scene where Jake is driving Andrew to find Melanie, he tells the story about the cat. The cat had cancer and Melanie wanted it to die a "humane" death. What is humane about blowing it up and if it was gonna die of cancer all those years ago why is it still roaming around town?

Answer: It is only humane from her perspective, believing the cat will be killed instantly. It is still roaming town because it somehow survived the attempt to blow it up and it either never had cancer or has gone into remission.
