The Grove - S4-E14

Corrected entry: When Carol and Tyreese are leaving the farm they do not have Judith with them.

Correction: Yes they do. She's strapped to Tyreese.


Guts - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Rick is using the binoculars on top of the building to scout out the get-a-way trucks behind the fence for their escape, he is scanning over towards the trucks and fence line, seeing the walkers between them and the fence. In the far distance you can see the highway and a car driving over it, presumably an in-use road not closed for filming that still has people driving as usual in real-life. (00:23:20)

Correction: It is still early in the Apocalypse and people are still using cars and as you pointed out the group is going to use a car to get back to camp. In fact Rick and the group use cars for quite a few seasons, Daryl is still using his motorcycle In season 9. The fact that someone else is also driving is not a mistake.


Always Accountable - S6-E6

Corrected entry: Abraham picks up a case of RPGs and a launcher from an American soldier. US Soldiers do not use RPGs.

Correction: Incorrect. While uncommon, RPGs are part of the US arsenal.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Almost all of the assault rifles in the show are fully automatic. The Army does not use full auto assault rifles, and owning a full auto firearm is a pricey and difficult thing to do, so it's illogical to think they scavenged dozens of fully automatic AK, AR, and M16 rifles from a relatively small area. Also, all of their full auto M4 rifles are inaccurate since there's no such thing as a fully automatic M4. And the Governor's full auto Steyr AUG is a very rare rifle that nobody would leave just lying around.


Correction: The M4A1 is a fully automatic M4, visually identical. While the Steyr might be rare, it wouldn't be impossible to obtain.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Michonne has dreadlocks. Dreadlocks are usually fake. They are attached to the scalp. They would have fallen out by now. If they were real, she would have to have taken them down by now.

Correction: There's no reason to think her character's deadlocks are fake (as in hair extensions). And most dreadlocks are natural, although a variety of ways can be used to create them.


Triggerfinger - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When Rick, Glenn, and Hershel are in the bar getting ready to leave and they see the headlights from the approaching car, Rick starts telling Carl to get down. Carl isn't even in the bar, and is back on the farm. (00:05:40)

Ethan Bivens

Correction: Rick says, "Car, car. Get down."


Season 8 generally

Corrected entry: In Season 6, it is revealed that Maggie is pregnant. In Season 8, she's not even showing, suggesting that not much time has passed, but in that time, Judith has grown from an infant into a toddler.

Correction: The scene you are referring to with Judith as a toddler is a flash forward scene where Rick is an old man. At this point we don't know if it was a dream/Rick's imagination or an actual flash forward. Either way, that is not the current Judith.

First Time Again - S6-E1

Corrected entry: The herd is deflected to the right, away from Alexandria, so Alexandria is now on the herd's left. When the horn sounds it attracts the herd to Alexandria on the herd's right.

Correction: You think that the wall with the caravan is Alexandria but it is a little set up to make a turn. That one goes right behind Alexandria, then the horn goes off and they find their way to Alexandria.


Heads Up - S6-E7

Corrected entry: In the same episode Glenn falls with Nicholas, we never saw Michonne and the others come back, neither in episodes after. But in season 6 episode 7, when they talk to Morgan, Michonne is there.

Correction: Just because we didn't see it happened, doesn't mean it did not happen. We don't see them go out on all their scavenger runs, or get the supplies for said runs either.


Show generally

Corrected entry: The walkers on this show are able to tear through a person's flesh as if they were made of tin foil, yet they are unable to break through glass doors and windows unless a large group of them are pressing their collective weight against them. Additionally, if the walkers' bodies are so frail that they can be obliterated by a fire hose, bisected by a rope or completely run themselves through on a sharp stick while walking at a very slow speed, then they shouldn't be able to rip or bite into a person's flesh without tearing off their own fingers and jaws in the process. If anything, the human characters should be able to rip apart walkers with their bare hands.

Phaneron Premium member

Correction: The premise of the walkers is their insatiable need to feed, so when they're around flesh, they'll feed vigorously. When faced with obstacles, they don't have the brain function to overcome them, so while they could physically destroy objects, like glass, they don't attack it vigorously like flesh. And since they don't feel pain, they'll walk themselves through sharp sticks in an effort to move forward or toward flesh. And just because they're easily destroyed doesn't mean they can't rip through soft tissue themselves, because different forces are in play. But there have been times when people have killed walkers with their bare hands. It's just risky because they don't want to be accidentally bitten or scratched.


Strangers - S5-E2

Corrected entry: When Glenn goes to see what is left in an old gun store with Meggie and Tara he finds 3 gun silencer. Silencers are illegal in all of America so it would be highly unlikely for an actual gun store to contain silencers. (01:00:00)

Correction: Silencers are legal to purchase (under certain restrictions) in most of the USA:


Triggerfinger - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When Rick, Glenn, and Herschel exit the bar under fire, they go directly out the back door of the bar and cross straight across a back room to an exterior door that would place it on the back of the building. However they amazingly come out on the side of the building.

Correction: In the beginning we see the bar's front door. Facing the front door, the pharmacy is to the right, as opposed to behind. So when the group exits straight through, they are in the back of the bar in the alleyway, next to the fence. If they had exited the side of the bar, they would be on the street.


Judge, Jury, Executioner - S2-E11

Corrected entry: Where did the zombie that attacks Dale come from? Dale is walking in a wide open field and there appears to be enough moonlight he can easily see the cow that has been attacked. Yet the zombie manages to sneak up on him? There was no long grass or crops for the zombie to hide or enough time to just appear from nowhere.

Correction: There's a pile of dead zombies that Dale walks past that the camera stays focused on for just a bit, as opposed to just panning by. Usually a foreshadowing shot.


Beside the Dying Fire - S2-E13

Corrected entry: When Rick grabs Hersel to leave the overrun farm Hersel wears only a shirt and pants. In the next scene where they stop on the highway, Hersel wears a clean shirt and a jacket. (00:16:00 - 00:21:00)

Anthony Liakopoulos

Correction: Herschel is still wearing the same dirty shirt, he's only put on the jacket, which was in the truck. When the truck stops, you can see Herschel putting on the jacket in the rear-view mirror.


Conquer - S5-E16

Corrected entry: When Rick closes the gate he realises that walkers could have got in, so he starts to run down the street in daylight. The scene changes then goes back to Rick - he's still running but it's pitch black.

Correction: There's no error and it's done to show passage of time. As you said, the scene changes. In fact it changes twice, once with the preacher and then the group meeting, before it goes back to Rick. Even though Rick is still running, he's in a completely different part of the town, as opposed to seeing him still run near the gate.


Made to Suffer - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Tyreese and his group are in the woods before they find the prison, Ben's mother gets bitten on the arm, but she starts limping and needs to be held up by her husband.

Correction: Ben's mum begins to limp because she gets caught in something as they're running away from the walkers.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Daryl describes the car that abducted Beth as "black with a white cross on the back", but the vehicle we see abduct Beth is white with no cross on the back. (00:05:00)

Correction: There is a white or grey cross in the back window of the Cadillac. Daryl could easily have misidentified the color because the car is more grey than white, and with the shadows, the trunk area looks black.


Killer Within - S3-E4

Corrected entry: When the Governor is teeing off on top of the walled barricade, we can see the tree line in the background is far away at the edge of The Other Side of Woodbury. After Merle has a chat with the Governor, we now see the trees are magically a lot closer.


Correction: The trees were the same, they are different distances depending on the angle and eye coordination.


Claimed - S4-E11

Corrected entry: As Michonne, Carl and Rick are walking over the railtracks you can see Carl carrying 2 bags arround his chest by 2 straps. First the black strap/bag is over the brown one, when the shot changes they stand still, the brown one is over the black one. Later on they are switched again. (00:41:40)

Tom Essers

Correction: I have watched this several times and the bags are always the same.


What Lies Ahead - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When the group is looking for Sophia and they enter the church after they kill the walkers, Darryl is walking towards the altar but you hear his voice at the same time screaming for Sophia outside.

Correction: Daryl is walking towards the altar, but it is Rick that screams out for Sophia from The Other Side of the seats.


Inmates - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Glenn wakes up in the prison you can see two chairs leaning against the walls behind him when he stands up. These are still present in the second shot, but when the camera moves back for the third shot they have mysteriously disappeared.

A - S4-E16

Question: Why was the fence down in the flashbacks with Hershel at the prison?

Answer: The walkers could have knocked them down more than once. There may have been another wave that knocked down the fence earlier and they're going to put it up again soon.
