Notes & Trivia[]


  • The classic car that is seen during the parade is a 1958 Plymouth Fury. This is the same car used by Arnie Cunningham and the novel and film adaptation of Stephen King's Christine.
  • Shawshank State Prison is the same prison seen in the story Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption and in the feature film The Shawshank Redemption by director Frank Darabont. Actor Tim Robbins played the main character Andy Dufresne in that film. Robbins plays Pop Merrill on Castle Rock.
  • The robed figure that approaches Amity Lambert at the cliff overlooking Castle Lake is Henry Matthew Deaver, also known as "The Kid". The Kid was a key figure in season one of the series. Other than setting, this is the first direct connection between the two seasons.
