Nitpick: After Matthias and the shrews get out of the cave, he says "Thank you Guosim of Mossflower." This statement is redundant, since "Guosim" stands for "Guerilla Union Of Shrews In Mossflower".

Constence was sleeping in her bed when she was captured by Cluny and his horde. However in the book this was not the case, she was captured while sleeping out on the main ground.
When Halftail asks 'if they will take over the abbey and capture them all' this is a referance to Cluny the scourge's final attempt in episode 13.
When Slagar/Chickenhound tells his story to Mattimeo, he says that he was kept 'in what the jokingly called, an Infirmary' but we never actually saw him being held in the infirmary in the TV series.
