The new and improved Abigail?

All nerds look for consistency from one season to the next, and I was surprised to find a glaring continuity error that I have a feeling no one was supposed to notice. The infamous Abigail from the series Fear the Walking Dead was drastically altered from the footage we see in season one to what we saw on Sunday’s premier.

In the photo below you can see that the comparison between what Nick saw through Strand’s telescope in season one and what we see on the “previously on” clip, in the new episode. This is not the first time we have seen a CGI failure in TWD franchise, and the change was likely due to the set design limitations, and edited in later as a means to a seamless transition.

On a Talking Dead featurette, they discussed how the boat set, where the majority of the filming was shot, was designed in only six and a half weeks! They shot on a specialized lot that is a large infinity pool, designed to mimic the ocean. Regardless of Abigail’s creative transformation, with new episodes being released every Sunday on AMC, I am looking forward to her journey.
