Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

New this month Other mistake: Shane lets loose on the gang about the two walkers Hershel and Rick just brought out from the woods and fires several shots into the female walker's body while screaming at Rick about them not being human, before he then fires two shots at her head. She should have gone down dead, as any blow to the brain kills them, but is still moving. She doesn't die until Shane dramatically moves right up to her and shoots her square in the forehead.

Nebraska - S2-E8

New this month Character mistake: While Hershel is sitting at the bar talking about what happened at the barn, he tells Rick what he was thinking about as he watched Rick run across the field, carrying Carl, who'd gotten shot. But it was Maggie who'd witnessed this through binoculars, and then yelled for Hershel.

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: As the group kills the walkers that come out of the barn, the camera shows several different vantage points from in front of the barn, inside of the barn etc., it shows the walkers lying with a clear path between them, and in another it shows the walkers lying in a jumbled pile with no path between them. This goes back and forth a few times until Sophia comes out of the barn, and there is no clear path again.

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

Other mistake: Dale threatens to shoot Shane, and Shane walks right up to him until the barrel of Dale's rifle is against his chest. Just before Shane walks up to him, you can see the imprint of the rifle muzzle on Shane's shirt from an earlier take. (00:32:50)

What Lies Ahead - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Carl rolls out the knife pack he found, the scene cuts to Shane working on the engine, and you can see traffic on a highway through the bottom of the windshield. (00:33:00 - 00:34:00)

What Lies Ahead - S2-E1

Other mistake: When Daryl is cutting open a walker in the woods to see what meat it ate while searching for Sophia he stabs the walker several times, but the knife is not bloody and it stays clean. (00:33:30)

Nebraska - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In Season 2 episode 7, "Pretty Much Dead Already," at the end where Rick shoots the walker Sophia, she falls to her right. In the next episode, "Nebraska," picking up immediately after the last, she is in an entirely different position, as if she fell forward.

Chupacabra - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Norman Reedus is talking to Michael Rooker, watch the dirt and sand around Reedus' mouth appear and disappear during the talk while he is on his back.

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: As Daryl and Shane argue near the start, Daryl's movements don't correspond with the changing shots: one moment he is standing in front of Carol, then he is standing by her, then he has moved closer to Rick - all within the same one-liners. As his argument with Shane grows, he again is standing by Carol, or closer, near Rick. At one point, a shot shows Daryl about to lounge at Shane, as Rick blocks him, but the very next shot shows him right next to Carol, who at that point would have been standing behind Rick. (00:10:00 - 00:11:00)

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)

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.

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Shane finds Dale in the swamp trying to hide the guns, when he first sees Dale, Dale is holding a large spike to drive into the tree. In the next second they show Dale standing next to the tree with the spike already in it.

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Deleted footage/special release only: Carol confronts Daryl about the boy being held hostage inside the barn (following Sophia's death), reasoning with him about pretending not to care when he truly does. At one point he moves to her, almost in her face. However, the following shot shows only a close up of Carol, implying they are standing feet apart, which is not the case. (00:24:10)

What Lies Ahead - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When the walkers come through the cars, most shots show Carl and Sophia to be under the same car. When Sophia is attacked by the walker, Carl is not there and Sophia is shown on her own in other shots as well. (00:19:25 - 00:20:05)

Season 5 generally

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