The End - S1-E1

Factual error: Looking at a nuclear explosion that close will burn your retinas irreparably. One can be blind 30 miles away, just by seeing the flash. The little girl at the start is looking directly at the explosion when it hits, and continues to watch.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This show has been widely declared as canonical with the games, by the makers of both this show and the games. The game Fallout 4 establishes the date and time that the bombs drop: Saturday, October 23, 2077, 9:47 AM Eastern Time. Which means it was 6:47 AM West Coast Time. That's a pretty weird time of day to schedule a kids' party with lots of guests and a hired celebrity cowboy.

Suggested correction: They changed a lot of subtle things from canon for the show. Also, all games have got some inconsistencies between them as well. In the show, on the TV, there is a clock that says it's around 9:30 AM the first time we see it and 10:45 when they cut the cake, so it's close to the afternoon and not very early in the morning. The position of the sun confirms this.


The End - S1-E1

Trivia: When Lucy goes to the armory, she finds it completely gutted except for the syringer she picks up and uses throughout the season. It was the only thing left in the armory because the syringer is the worst weapon in the game and nobody EVER takes it.
