The Walking Dead

Home - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When helping the foreign family to fight off the walkers, Daryl pulls the zombie back into the car and slams its head in the boot door, covering his hands in blood in the process. However, for the rest of the scenes in the episode and in shots directly afterwards, his hands appear totally clean without him doing anything to clean them. (00:22:00)

Claimed - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When Eugene sees the walkers come out of the woods, the road is wet. The rest of the scene the road is dry.

Factual error: Season 5 and they are still driving cars around! Gasoline won't last years unless specially treated.

Mike Walker

Still - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: In the golf club Beth is wearing her new yellow t-shirt and white cardigan. Daryl hits walker blood all over her cardigan. In the next scene she takes the cardigan off and the t-shirt underneath (which was covered by the cardigan) has blood all over it. Back in the forest after this the shirt is clean again. (00:18:20 - 00:21:35)

Seed - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Daryl, Maggie, T-Dog, Glenn and Rick are killing walkers with mêlée weapons on their way inside the prison, there is a random CGI blood spatter that appears on the crossbar of the fence in the foreground. (00:21:25)

A - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Right at the end of this episode when there is another flashback to the prison, the baby is seen many times. Judith is asleep, then the camera angle changes and she is awake, it moves back to another angle and she is sleeping again. This is repeated several times.

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

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. (00:10:00)

Arrow on the Doorpost - S3-E13

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.

Other mistake: Most if not every time someone kills a walker in close proximity or repeatedly bludgeons one that is already dead with a blunt object and there is a CGI blood spatter effect (as opposed to a practical blood spatter effect), the blood magically never gets on the person's face.

Forget - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: Possible Spoilers! At the very end of the episode Rick walks up to the wall of Alexandria to check out a noise. When the camera shows the walker on the other side of the fence it is clear there is nothing else out there. When the camera shows the fence from behind Rick there is the roof of a house visible above the top of the fence. The shadows made by the struts of the fence make it apparent that if there was a house the other side of the fence would have been in shadow. (00:48:00 - 00:50:00)

When the Dead Come Knocking - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: The Governor takes off his belt while interrogating Maggie, and a few shots later has it on again in the same scene.

Say the Word - S3-E5

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. (00:13:50)

Still - S4-E12

Other mistake: After Daryl clubs the walker and gets blood all over Beth's shirt, she proceeds to take off her cardigan. As the next scene plays we see Beth front on and then a behind shot of her - the actress has her mobile phone in her back pocket.

Welcome to the Tombs - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Andrea is attempting to retrieve the pliers on the floor she picks them up between her toes with the head facing up. In the next show the pliers can be seen with the head facing down when she grabs them with her hand.

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

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.

Start to Finish - S6-E8

Factual error: In the opening scene and throughout, young Sam Anderson, cloistered in his bedroom, is presumably listening to a crackly 45 rpm copy of Nick Lucas crooning his 1929 hit, Tiptoe Through the Tulips. In reality, the disc with gold/blue label spinning on Sam's turntable is not the song playing. The original Tiptoe was released in 1929 on 78 rpm vinyl by Brunswick Records, and was finally pressed on vinyl 45 by Accent Records in 1974 (solid robin egg blue label however, not gold/blue).

No Sanctuary - S5-E1

Character mistake: When Gareth is questioning Rick about what was in the bag he hid in the woods, Rick replies a .44. Rick is referring to his Python, which is a .38 or .357, not a .44.

Home - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When the Governor first attacks the prison, he is standing on the driver's side but in front of the truck. Next, Michonne aims at the truck and now the black guy who was always with Martinez is shot dead on the driver's side. Then after that, you see he's alive again on the passenger side right before the other truck comes crashing through the gates with all the walkers inside.

Imani Moore

Vatos - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: As the scene opens on the rooftop with Daryl, T-Dog, Rick, and Glenn observing the area that Merle had been handcuffed to the pipe, blood splatter magically appears around the severed hand when it wasn't there at the end of the previous episode. (00:05:10)

Them - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Gabriel burns his collar while eating at the side of the road, however when trying to stop the barn doors opening in the storm it is back again.

Season 5 generally

Rick Grimes: This is how we survive. We tell ourselves that we are the walking dead.
