We see behind the scenes footage of how the stuntmen deal with the Mexican outlaw scene vs Nick’s zombie herd.

Erickson says that the book Nick was reading in his flashback was a shout out to his own dad and a reference to coming of age.

Kim is unsure of Madison will ever understand Nick’s fascination with the dead. We also learn that the outlaw couldn’t put the bullets in his gun because he was so freaked out by Nick walking with the dead.

Danay tries to make her Spanish neutral, finding a middle ground between Mexican Spanish and Cuban Spanish.
