Ash vs Evil Dead

El Jefe - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: Inside the home that has been infested with Evil, the state police confront a possessed girl who attacks them. After some futile gunfire, the possessed girl is still standing. The female officer goes for her backup gun, which for some reason is a small over-and-under Derringer (meaning she has two shots maximum). She ends up firing the Derringer five times in just a few seconds, with explosive damage and without reloading. Director Sam Raimi probably staged the 5 gunshots on purpose, knowing that a two-round Derringer was a ridiculously-limited piece of firepower. Raimi probably did this as a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Ash's bottomless double-barrelled shotgun from Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness.

Ruby asks Ash where the the Kandarian Dagger is. He says that it was confiscated by the police. In the previous episode, she had and used it, and they have not interacted in the intervening time period.



While the film contains numerous references to "The Evil Dead" and "Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn", it contains virtually no overt references to the third "Evil Dead" film, "Army of Darkness." This is due to an issue with the rights to the third film, as they are owned by a different company than the series and the first two films.
