Consumed, which followed Carol and Daryl as they followed the hospital’s cars to what they hoped was Beth’s location, seemed design to fill in some of the holes in the show’s previous episodes; it answered questions such as ‘How did Carol get taken in by the hospital?’ and ‘Did she mean to get taken in, or was it an accident?’ as well as ‘What was Carol up to after Rick kicked her out?’ Although the episode did answer some questions, it also left viewers with plenty of new questions that need answering.
Why were we shown Carol’s time during ‘exile’?
Flashbacks are usually included in the show for a specific reason, such as showing us a key event in the past—like Eugene being saved by Abraham and telling him that he had a special mission—or they are used to fill in important holes, such as depicting how Shane, Lori and Carl ended up fleeing the city. But the flashbacks in this episode seemed largely pointless, other than to give fans an idea of what Carol was doing right after Rick sent her packing. Hopefully, the writers will connect the dots on this one soon.
How did the people camping on the bridge die?
One of the most striking moments of the episode was Carol and Daryl coming across walkers in sleeping bags and tents on the covered bridge in Atlanta. While the image was creepy, it begs the question: just how did those people die? They must have been in their sleeping bags when they died, but there were no wounds from walkers or other people visible. The people in the tents are slightly easier to explain—if one person dies and becomes a walker, everyone is fair game, but what about the people safe outside the tents?
How on earth did Carol and Daryl survive that fall without injury?
One scene that has many fans raising their eyebrow is the scene where Carol and Daryl deliberately take a nosedive in a fan from a bridge. The car magically become bottom-heavy as it fell, and Carol and Daryl survived without a single noticeable injury. How did they manage to avoid getting injured in such a serious fall? Maybe the writers didn’t want to disable them at such a critical moment, but it was far fetched, even for a show like The Walking Dead.
One of the most memorable aspects of the hit comedy film There’s Something About Mary was the character of Puffy, the dog. Puffy was Mary’s beloved pet, who did not take kindly to the courtship of Ben Stiller’s character, Ted. Many of the funniest scenes in the film can be attributed to Puffy—such as the action-packed comedy scene where Puffy attacks Ted. Although Puffy is one of the best parts of the film, many people don’t know much about this hilarious pooch. If you’re interested in learning more about this comedic pup or you’re simply a lover of movie trivia, consider the following interesting trivia about Puffy from “There’s Something About Mary.”
Fake dogs were used for the action sequences
In the scenes where Puffy attacks Ben Stiller’s character and finds herself thrown around, slapped and even zapped were done using fake prop dogs who were attached to strings to give them a lifelike appearance. Any scenes where Puffy’s dog actor–named Slammer–might have been hurt were done using these fake dogs.
Slammer did get into a full body cast
Although the action scenes were done using fake dogs, the iconic scene where Puffy appears in a full body cast after her battle with Red was actually filmed by the real Slammer. A three-piece, cloth-lined cast costume was created for this scene and the dog was only in the costume for about 10 seconds.
The full body cast gag was so popular that the costume department created several prop versions to display at the film’s special premieres. These displays generated a lot of interest from those who attended the premires; so much so that the film’s producers commissioned the costume department for additional toys props of Puffy in a body cast. However, because these wrapped props were time consuming to create, only a very limited run of about 860 “body cast” Puffy toys created. Today, they can fetch fairly high prices on the secondhand market.
Some of the scenes with Puffy were improvised Dog actors, despite their extensive training, can sometimes be predictable—especailly on a set where anything can happen. Some of the scenes with Puffy included degrees of improsiviation because of the dog not doing exactly what it was told—the outakes of the film reveal even more instances where Puffy the dog inspired some truly hilarious improvisation material.
