Revealing mistake: In the scene where Angel fights the demon for the first of his trials, upon cutting the demon in half for the second time he chains the two halves to the walls. When he drags the upper half of the demon to the wall, the green legs of the actor are momentarily visible, when they should have been removed by CGI.
Revealing mistake: When the gang attack the vampires in the bowling alley, watch as Jasmine and Fred walk over the bowling lanes in the background as the others fight the vampires. Jasmine slips on the floor but manages to maintain her balance. You'd think a deity with superhuman strength, telepathy, shape-shifting and psychic capabilities would be able to walk on a smooth floor without slipping and also know that it was smooth to begin with. Although she may lack friction, the shot should have been re-filmed as it is a blatant mistake.
Factual error: Spike suggests that Illyria and Drogyn play Crash Bandicoot. They appear to be playing on an original Xbox console. The episode was broadcast on May 12th 2004, meaning that the only Crash Bandicoot game they could possibly be playing would be The Wrath of Cortex which came out on April 5th 2002 in North America because every other Crash Bandicoot game that came out before that was only on the Sony PlayStation (with the exception of Crash Nitro Cart, but they're not playing that one). Both Illyria and Drogyn appear to be playing, however, The Wrath of Cortex was a single-player only game. They're not playing Crash Twinsanity (available for the Xbox) either as that didn't come out in North America until October 1st 2004 and it too was a single-player only game.
Continuity mistake: When the gang rescues Angel and returns him to his normal form towards the end of the episode, Cordelia shocks him unconscious with a taser and he falls to the floor, lying on his front. But when Fred whacks him on the head with her baseball bat, he is suddenly lying on his back.
Plot hole: When Angel is being pursued by the Lilliad demons, he is holding his son Connor and is talking to him in the car. Later on it is revealed that he is in fact holding a teddy bear with a bomb attached to it. If it wasn't his son, why was he talking to it? It couldn't be to fool the Lilliad demons because they wouldn't be able to hear him, as they were in separate vehicles.
Audio problem: During Lilah's failed attempt to rescue Angelus, when Gunn shoots at Angelus with the tranquilizer gun, Angelus passes out then hits the ground. When he is about to pass out, we hear the sound effect of him hitting the ground before he even begins to fall over, and instantly in the next camera angle he hits the ground.
Continuity mistake: When Wesley tells Faith that Angelus is back, she says, "Step away from the glass" and hangs up the phone. When Wesley jumps from his chair (to allow Faith to smash through the glass and escape) you can see Faith behind the glass with her hands up to her face and standing, but in the close up of Faith her hands are at her sides and she is only just getting out of her chair.
Continuity mistake: When Fred is running from the oncoming white car, she runs toward a blue car getting fixed on the side of the road, but jumps out of the way as the white car hits the blue car. Fred hits the ground and rolls over to the fence, but in a following shot it shows Fred only just hitting the ground and she is on the grass, not next to the fence.
