Are we supposed to have failures at the end of the video?

He doesn't run the rspec at the end (as opposed to doing it every time before every commit, etc.). Does this mean it's assumed we have failures and are just ignoring them until later or something?

I have 3 failures which I'm just going to list the messages for:

1) Adding todo items is successful with valid content
     Failure/Error: within("ul.todo_items") do
     Capybara::ElementNotFound:
       Unable to find css "ul.todo_items"
     # ./spec/features/todo_items/create_spec.rb:12:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>'

  2) Viewing todo items displays item content when a todo list has items
     Failure/Error: expect(page.all("ul.todo_items li").size).to eq(2)

       expected: 2
            got: 0

       (compared using ==)
     # ./spec/features/todo_items/index_spec.rb:24:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>'

  3) Viewing todo items displays the ittle of the todo list
     Failure/Error: within("h1") do
     Capybara::Ambiguous:
       Ambiguous match, found 2 elements matching css "h1"
     # ./spec/features/todo_items/index_spec.rb:8:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>'
