  • Trivia

    • When Opie releases Nod, the first bird it does a nose dive. This can be detected by Andy and Opie's initial split- second eye movement, watched in slo-mo they both follow the bird's flight path which is toward earth, they are quick in recovering. But... Watch the shadow of the bird, it can be seen traversing Andy's body and headed in a nose dive. It is believed the other two birds made it OK.
