Corrected entry: In the season 5 episode 'Fool For Love' Spike tells Buffy that Nikki Wood gave up because she had no ties to the world, but we later find out that she had a son, which seems like a pretty strong tie. There's no question of Spike not knowing about him; in the episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me' Spike sees him while fighting Nikki.Shay
Corrected entry: In season 7, it is often said that for one of the potentials to be activated, Buffy will have to die. However technically, Buffy is not carrying on the slayer line - Faith is as Buffy gave this up at the end of season 1 when she died. Even if it is possible for her to still carry on the slayer line, how come another slayer wasn't activated when Buffy died for Dawn in the season 5 finale "The Gift"?
Corrected entry: At the end of Season 5, Buffy died. She was still dead into Season 6, before Willow raised her. Spike says she was dead 147 days. When one slayer dies, another takes her place (i.e., Kendra). The slayer's death does not have to be reported to anyone (example: the Council), as when Buffy died the first time and Xander gave her mouth-to-mouth to bring her back (she was only dead for a few minutes). A few episodes later - voila, Kendra. So, where was the new slayer after Buffy died at the end of Season 5?Bruce
Corrected entry: During season 1 it is mentioned a few times that if the Master rises the Hellmouth will open, since his being trapped in it has jammed it up. In 'The Wish' we see what Sunnydale would have been like if Buffy hadn't gone there and he had risen, so why didn't the Hellmouth open?Shay
Corrected entry: In the season two episode 'Halloween' only the people who got their costumes from Ethan's store are meant to change into what they are dressed as when the spell is cast. However, Xander changes, despite having told the girls in an earlier scene that he got his fatigues from an army surplus store - not from Ethan's
Corrected entry: During 'The Wish', when history has changed and the Master has risen, where are Collin, Darla and the Anointed One, the Three or any of the other favoured acolytes from season 1? Buffy never killed Collin or the Three, Angel wouldn't have killed Darla if it hadn't been for Buffy and the Master would surely have been able to protect the Anointed One from Spike. Even allowing for Angel and the White Hats to have taken out one or two of them, surely at least one of the group should have been there? This is technically the real world as altered by Anyanka's temporal fold, not any kind of alternate dimension. This is what the world would have been like if Buffy hadn't come to Sunnydale, so anybody who would be alive if it weren't for Buffy should still be alive.Shay
Corrected entry: In Season 7, Ep 13 'The Killer In Me,' Buffy and Spike go to the long-abandoned Initiative to find information on Spike's backfiring chip. Only problem is, in Season 4, Ep 21 'Primeval,' government officials decided to have The Initiative facility filled in with concrete.
Corrected entry: During the episode 'Once More With Feeling' all the characters are forced to tell the truth when they sing, but Xander lies flat out when he says during the song 'I've Got a Theory' that he thinks it might be witches, since he knows it's the talisman he used that's causing the singing.
Corrected entry: In the episode 'Passion' Angelus destroys Jenny's computer before he kills her, hoping to get rid of the hard drive with his cure on it. Two episodes later in 'I Only Have Eyes For You' Willow tells Giles she found lesson plans on Jenny's hard drive. If the hard drive was destroyed with the computer she wouldn't have been able to retrieve lesson plans, but if it somehow survived the damage Willow would have found the curse when she looked through the files. Either way it's a mistake.Shay
Corrected entry: In the Season 7 episode 'Selfless' we are told that Anyanka was known as Aud back when she turned Olaf into a troll and had him imprisoned in the purple crystal, and that she only adopted the name Anyanka when D'Hoffryn made her a demon. But back in the Season 5 episode 'Triangle', when Olaf was released he refered to Aud as Anya straight away. He wouldn't have known about her name change.
Corrected entry: In the episode 'Once More, With Feeling' Xander is barefooted in his bedroom at the start of the 'I'll Never Tell' number, but is wearing slippers as he walks into the kitchen. There is a cut, but not long enough to let him pick up and put on slippers.
Corrected entry: In Series 7 Episode 14, it is indicated several times that Principal Wood is over 30 - Xander says he's 10 years older than Buffy, Wood refers to events 'back in his 20s', but Wood also says he was 4 when his mother died. In Season 5, the episode 'Fool For Love' we are told Nikki, his mother, died in 1980. This would make him only 26/27, not into his 30s.
