1. Rose isn’t actually sticking up for Chris when she argues with the cop about showing ID. She’s avoiding a paper trail.

Had the cop run both their licenses, there would be a record that Chris and Rose were together before his eventual disappearance.

2. After Rose and Chris hit the deer, Chris goes to see if it’s OK. Two things are happening here: 1) It’s the first introduction to the hit-and-run theme. 2) Chris shows empathy; Rose does not.

It lets on that Rose might not be as good of heart as we gleaned from the first few scenes.

3. Dean has a lot to say about how little he cares for deer and bucks. “Black buck” was a racist slur in post-Reconstruction America for black men who refused to bow to white authority.

And fittingly, he is killed with the symbol of his own racism when Chris impales Dean with the antler of a mounted buck.

6. On the tour, Dean remarks, “We hired Georgina and Walter to help care for my parents. When they died, I couldn’t bear to let them go.” There’s a pronoun antecedent slip here, and it’s on purpose. He couldn’t bear to let “them” — as in his parents, not Georgina and Walter — go.

So — yada yada yada — he gave his parents new life by putting their brains in younger bodies. Totally normal stuff.

7. Walter, who we know is really Dean’s father, is probably running because he never got over his loss to Jesse Owens in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
