Corrected entry: In the scene where Buffy is walking away from Willow and Xander to leave the Bronze, you see her holding a dark jacket right after she feels Angel's presence behind her. As she is walking down the street you can see she is wearing a dark jacket, either dark brown or black. The following scene, she is still walking but wearing a light baby blue colored jacket.
Corrected entry: When Tara got shot, the hole in the window and Tara shows that the bullet has to have entered in a straight line, but Tara and Willow were on the second level and Warren was on the bottom level, and he shot upwards, not straight, so the bullet couldn't have entered in a straight line.
Corrected entry: In 3-6 "Band Candy", Buffy finds a monster and the babies that had been kidnapped in the sewers, simply, it would seem, by going underground, as if Sunnydale's sewer network was small enough for such a feat. However in this episode, when Buffy and Xander are looking for the 3 priests in the episode “Amends”, they get information from Willy the snitch that they may live underground. Xander says "We know 'underground', that's a start," to which Buffy disdainfully replies: "Sure! In a town with 14 million square miles of sewer". Even assuming she's speaking figuratively, there's no reason it's easy to find someone the first time but not the second.AnthonyA
Corrected entry: In 'Get It Done' the First repeats Buffy's words to the Potentials to discourage them, but the words it speaks are different to Buffy's - they change from 'there's nothing I can do to stop that' to 'and nothing I can do will stop that'. Granted, the meaning is the same, but shouldn't the omnipresent evil know what it's repeating?Shay
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Bogeyman comes down the hospital corridor and Buffy (who has been turned into a vampire as part of her nightmare) attacks him, she steps into direct sunlight, then runs and jumps the bogeyman in a sunny corridor, without any apparent ill effects.
Corrected entry: During Buffy's training montage, she is seen punching a bag with her wrists bent. First, that's going to be a weak punch, super strength or no, because she can't transfer the force from her arm and body; it just bends at the joint. Second, that's a great way to injure your wrist, because all that escaping force snaps the bend farther. You could strain or even break the joint. After six years, Buffy should know better.
Corrected entry: During the final showdown Spike incapacitates Drusilla by choking her into unconsciousness. However, throughout Buffyverse material, especially on several occasions in Angel, it is pointed out specifically that this is impossible as vampires do not draw breath.Lord Mordo
Corrected entry: When Buffy and Spike argue about the wedding and she says "You think I don't live with the shadow of Drusilla over my head. Like you won't be thinking of her when you're making sweet love to me," you can see a crew member wearing a light sweater at the right edge of the screen.

Corrected entry: When Giles hacks the lock off the cage he's in in the library, he uses an axe - the axe which belonged to the demon going after the glove in "Revelations", who Buffy killed and stole the axe from. The axe cannot be there, however, as Buffy is not in Sunnydale in this reality and therefore could not have faced this demon and taken the axe to the library.
Corrected entry: The vampires are digging the master up and one digs w/ his hands and they begin to smoke and he says "the ground, it's consecrated, it burns." But you never see any vampires in the cemetery burning when they dig themselves out of their graves.wolfman1378
Corrected entry: In this episode Ted suggests that the group go mini-golfing and everyone is fine with the idea and they do go. However, in the fade-out of the first episode of this season Xander suggests the same idea as a way to spend the afternoon and Willow states that there is no course in Sunny dale.Lord Mordo
Corrected entry: When the Initiative are looking through the thermal goggles, it shows the first three or four people before Spike to be 68.6 degrees. But not everyone's temperature is 68.6 - it's just an average. Running or even talking could make it a different temp.wolfman1378
Corrected entry: Buffy is going to confess to the police and Spike is trying to stop her, so Buffy is punching him repeatedly in the face. We cut to Spike who is bleeding from his nose, which is all well and good. But then we cut to Buffy and she says, "I will never be your girl," and then it cuts back to Spike, he now has a huge cut over his left cheek that wasn't there before.
Corrected entry: In the first season, Giles tells everyone that for a vampire to make another vampire, the victim must drink the vamp blood too. Throughout the whole show we see vamps constantly killing people by draining them and dumping them, only for the victim to come back later as a vamp themselves, without feeding from their killer at all.
Corrected entry: There are three actors who have the rare accolade of having appeared in the three Mutant Enemy shows: Buffy, Angel and Firefly. They are Jonathan M. Woodward who played the vampire Holden Webster in the Buffy episode 'Conversations With Dead People', Carlos Jacott who played Ken in 'Anne' and Andy Umberger who plays recurring vengeance patron D'Hoffryn.
Corrected entry: Buffy tells Spike that he attacked Andrew when the First was controlling him. Spike asks who that is, and when Buffy tells him it's Tucker's brother, Spike recognises the name. There's no way Spike could know Tucker, who the Scoobies only met briefly and during a time when Spike wasn't around. If he was going to know either brother, it would be Andrew, who he interacted with several times in the previous year.Shay
Corrected entry: Early on in season 5 Buffy is surprised by Dracula referring to her slaying/patrolling as 'hunting'. However, Buffy used the term 'hunting' herself throughout the first season, and even as late as the fourth season Willow wishes her 'happy hunting' without Buffy thinking anything of it.
Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, when Buffy is fighting the vampires, she grabs a tennis racket, and just before she hits the vampire with it, the head of the racket flies off to the right of the screen and she continues to swing round and hit the vampire, running at her on the left of the screen, with the racket (minus the head).
Corrected entry: If the mayor knows about both slayers (if he didn't know before hand, his assassin Trick would have told him) then surely he would have realised they were a threat and tried to eliminate them earlier. I appreciate it wouldn't have benefited the season at all but for a highly efficient mayor who was determined, his plan would go without a hitch. It seems pretty careless.
Corrected entry: Buffy manages to get right into Faith's apartment and has to turn the stereo off before Faith notices her there. In that amount of time and if Faith is being that oblivious, Buffy could have easily killed her by throwing the knife or using a crossbow, etc.
Corrected entry: When Spike and Harmony are near to the area of the Gem of Amara, Spike tells Harmony that she can't go out anywhere. Harmony is wearing a pink corset top, but when they reach the actual area of the gem, the top changes to a brighter pink halter neck. This happens in a short space of time, so she wouldn't have had time to change.Lisa Black
Corrected entry: When Dawn goes to close the front door and she turns around and sees that the mute is turned off, she runs back to the T.V and turns around in a panic. Behind her you can see the mute is still on (as it says "mute" in lime green writing at the top of the screen) but when it shows the T.V again, the mute is off.
Corrected entry: The location of a vampire's heart seems to migrate quite a bit across the show. We can see vamps staked in the center of the chest, on the left side, at the base of the sternum, and even (quite shallowly) in the back. Yet in Graduation Day, Pt. 1, we see that Angel's heart is very strictly defined by Faith's very accurate placement of an arrow in the left of his chest.Phoenix
Corrected entry: How does Angel maintain an apartment in the first two seasons, complete with furnishings and a few antiquities? He has no job of which we are aware, so no source of income. He was living on the streets when he came to Los Angeles, so he would have had very few possessions (certainly no relics from his global travels). And with a soul, he wouldn't have hurt or killed anyone to acquire money, possessions, or the apartment.
Corrected entry: We're told that Molly and Rona are fighting over who gets to drive since Giles doesn't have a California driver's licence. But since Molly and Rona are only 15 (as stated in "Potential"), neither of them would have drivers licences either. Even if you take the statement of their age to be slightly inaccurate, Molly (who is also from England) wouldn't have any kind of a driver's licence until she was 17, let alone a licence valid in California.Shay
Corrected entry: In the scene where Spike's mother is singing the trigger song to him, she sings "Early one morning, just as the sun was shining." Every other time this song is sung by The First, and on the MP3 Woods plays, the words are "Early one morning, just as the sun was rising."
Corrected entry: Willow tracks down her old Wicca group when she needs help reversing a spell, but seems surprised that they're competent spell casters now (since the last time she saw them Tara was the only one with any kind of power). But if she's so surprised to find this out, why did she go to them? (as opposed to calling the coven in Devon or trying to contact Giles).Shay
Corrected entry: In the episode 'Once More, With Feeling', during Giles' song, 'Standing', Buffy's hair is loose as we see her training montage. When she walks up to him at the end and starts to speak, she's taking it out of a bun. She's definitely not just playing with her hair - if you watch carefully you can see that there's a clip or pin of some sort in her hand that had been holding her hair up.
Corrected entry: When Willow is talking to Cassie in the UC Sunnydale University Library, Cassie said she was sent to talk to her by Tara. Cassie says "she still sings the song you sang to each other on the bridge", referring to "Once More with Feeling". But Willow only sang 2 lines in the that episode. In "I've Got a Feeling", she sang "Ive got a feeling some kid is dreaming and were all stuck inside this wacky broadway nightmare", and in "Walk Through the Fire", she sang "I think this line's mostly filler".julie sheridan
Corrected entry: Buffy is talking to her mother about college while making a bag of microwave popcorn. When the microwave goes off, she takes the fully-popped bag out and opens it. When it opens, there is no puff of smoke from the heated oil in the bag, indicating that it was pre-popped for the scene.
Corrected entry: When Buffy sees the news report about the frozen security guard, the reporter says that he is in critical but stable condition. In the next scene, Buffy sees the frozen guard being removed from the museum. How did they determine his condition without taking him to the hospital?
Corrected entry: In this episode the Chinese Potential is among the girls training in the garden, so why is she surprised a few episodes later in 'Dirty Girls' when she sees Faith training in the garden? Maybe she doesn't know Faith specifically, but she's been living at the Summers house for weeks with strange girls arriving and training every day. It shouldn't really register as a shock to her to see someone training in the garden.Shay
Corrected entry: Near the end of the episode they are fighting the vampires in the front lawn of a house. Buffy breaks the pole off a mailbox and uses it to stake a vampire. In the shot where she broke it off the ends are uneven, but in the very next shot one end has a point like a stake.
Corrected entry: During Season 2 we see that after Angelus has killed Drusilla, but before she has risen, he is cursed. However in later seasons it is shown that the two of them, as well as Darla and Spike, wreak havoc all across Europe, so somehow the time line was changed just to further a storyline.troy fox
Corrected entry: When Buffy is in the basement with Spike, she rings Dawn on her mobile phone. When she is finished, she puts it in her pants at the back, because she has no pockets. She then opens a door, and we see her back, and the mobile phone is not there. A minute later, she gets the phone back from her pants, and rings Xander.
Corrected entry: Once a human has been bitten by a vampire, it seems that the time it takes to change into a vampire is very aleatory. Most of the time, it happens once buried, but other times (like episode "Helpless") it's only a few minutes/hours later, and some other times, it's even a few days later.
Corrected entry: In the final episode, Willow turns all the Potential girls into Slayers, so they can fight the army of uber-vamps. This is obviously wrong because of episode 7.11, "Showtime", when one uber-vamp alone beats the bejeezus out of experienced slayer Buffy. There is no way 30 or so newly-formed slayers could've taken out thousands of uber-vamps, much less the humans who kill several themselves.
Corrected entry: On both occasions in season 7 prior to "Chosen", whenever blood is spilled on the seal of the hellmouth, an ubervamp is brought out as the seal opens (e.g. when the First bleeds Spike; when the demon girl bleeds Xander). But, in "Chosen", when Buffy and the Potentials cut their hands to open the seal, no ubervamps are waiting to come out. Instead, the seal opens to reveal a set of stairs that lead them down to where the ubervamps are. That is the only way the Slayers could get to the vamps to surprise them, and the only way the whole ending with Spike could happen, but it isn't consistent with the rest of the season and what happens when blood is spilled on the seal.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Buffy and the rest of the gang are down in the Hellmouth, one of the slayers says ''I'm zipping back to Xander's whole bathroom speech'' - Xander didn't have a bathroom speech at that time. Xander did have a bathroom speech at one time but that was when Riley came to see Buffy.
Corrected entry: The hole in Anthony Stewart Head's left earlobe is frequently visible throughout the show, but an earring would be totally out of character for Giles - even if he had gotten one during his rebellion in his 20s, it would be almost entirely healed over by the time we see him in Sunnydale, whereas the hole is obviously in regular use.Shay
Corrected entry: Xander is visited by what he believes is himself from the future. We later find out it is a demon that used to be a man, but Anya had changed him back in her demon days. But when Giles destroyed Anya's pendant in 'The Wish,' it supposedly reverted all of her previous spells, which should have made him human again.
Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, we find out that Gwendolyn Post was kicked out of the Watchers' Council for misuse of dark power and that the Council had informed everyone of the fact via memo. If that's the case, then why would she use her real name when she arrived in Sunnydale? Wouldn't she be worried that Giles would recognize her?
Corrected entry: In this episode when everyone is in the Library and they find out that Buffy can hear thoughts, Buffy turns to look at Wesley because he is thinking about Cordelia. As she leans forward she rests her chin on the heel of her hand, the shot cuts to Wesley, then back to Buffy and she has her chin resting on the top of her hand (the knuckles), Wesley then goes into the office and it cuts to a shot of Buffy and Willow, Buffy is once again resting her chin on the heel of her hands.
Corrected entry: Katie Holmes was originally asked to play Buffy, but turned down the part. Sarah Michelle Gellar audtioned for Cordellia and Charisma Carpenter (Cordellia) auditioned for Buffy. After Sarah Michelle Gellar was turned down the part for Cordellia, she auditioned 4 times for Buffy before landing the part.
Corrected entry: In 'Graduation Day, pt 2' Percy and guys who are presumably other students are fighting at Angel's side, but shouldn't they have been at the ceremony with the others? Even if they just didn't show up there would have been noticeable gaps in the seating, but in all the previous shots every chair is filled.
00:28:55 - 00:34:55Shay
Corrected entry: The Mayor, near phobic about germs, doesn't even react when Faith picks up a cookie in his office, takes a bite out of it and puts it back in the pile. Someone as obsessive as him would surely hate the thought of half-eaten cookies being mixed with the fresh ones. We know he plans to keep the cookies since he covers them over with clingfilm later in the scene.Shay
Corrected entry: In the episode 'End of Days' Xander is driving Dawn to safety and she stuns him with a taser. There is a shot from outside the car of it turning around and driving back towards Sunnydale, but how did Dawn turn the car without moving Xander out of the way, which would be impossible without stopping and getting out?Shay
Corrected entry: In season 7, the first Ubervamp to escape the Hellmouth and attack Buffy is incredibly strong and hard to kill - in the end it's pure luck that lets Buffy defeat it. In 'Chosen', people (including the civilians) are killing Ubervamps all over the place with ease; if they're this easy to kill, why did Buffy struggle so much with the first one? Granted, Andrew says in the meantime that Ubervamps can actually be staked, but Anya adds that it's like pushing a stake through solid steel. Buffy couldn't stake one of them the first time, so how can the Potentials (who haven't anywhere near as much training or muscle power as Buffy) can do it with ease?Shay
Corrected entry: In 'Selfless' Anya wants to reverse her wish that killed 12 people and is unable to do it, but during 'The Wish' we were told that all you have to do is destroy her power source and all her wishes will be reversed (Anya has to have a power centre - we see in the episode 'Older And Far Away' that ALL vengeance demons have one). Even though the gang don't know this any more (they wouldn't have any memory of researching it), surely Anyanka herself would know her own weakness?Shay
Corrected entry: If even Faith can instantly realise that the gang would be willing to trade the Box of Gavrok for Willow's life, we can assume Willow knows it too. Why, then, when she escapes from the locked room in Town Hall, does she hang around to read up on the Books of Ascension? If she had escaped they could have destroyed the box, and the Mayor's plan would have been stopped, whether he had the books or not.Shay
Corrected entry: When Faith asks Buffy what her toughest kill was, she tells her "The Three", from the season one episode "Angel", but in that episode Buffy barely encountered them. She saw them once in an alley and was barely harmed in the encounter - in the end, it was Darla who killed them. One would assume her first thoughts would be of someone like the Master (who killed her) or The Judge (who was indestructible).Shay
Corrected entry: When the gang are in Buffy's house and she sees the picture of herself standing alone, instead of saying the line "I would never wear that low apparel" she fluffs her line and said "I would never wear this that low apparel" The shot changes between the words "this" and "that" so it looks like they tried to cut out the mistake in words but didn't succeed.
Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, "Teachers Pet," Buffy picks Dr. Gregory's glasses from off the floor, opens the closet where his lab coat is hanging and places the glasses in the pocket. As she closes the door, the camera moves to the bottom of the closet and you can see about four or five bug eggs, one of them cracks open and then the show ends. What happened with the eggs?
Corrected entry: It has been stated that Joss mentioned Buffy burning down her old school's Gym even though it was never shown in the movie of BtVS to have proper continuity with the original script. But one thing he seemed to totally neglect from the original story is that Buffy gets "cramps" when a Vampire is near. This served as a warning for movie Buffy but TV show Buffy could walk right past one and not feel anything. It seems the only reason this decision was made is to make it easier to get into danger and have more exciting shows.troy fox
Corrected entry: In this episode, Buffy is protecting Gage, one of the swimmers she believes is targeted by the monster. At school she watches him from a chair, acting like she is reading a magazine. The first time we see this, her magazine is upside down, but in the next shot, it is a different magazine and is also right-side up.
Corrected entry: In the opening song of 'Once More, With Feeling', Buffy stabs a demon with a sword. She then walks across to the hostage and cuts him free, but when we see the sword there isn't any blood, despite the fact that seconds ago there was a demon impaled on it.Shay
Corrected entry: During the episode 'All The Way' Anya mentions that she's having a huge blowout sale the next day. The next episode is 'Once More, With Feeling' which picks up the very next morning (Tara wakes up to find the Lethe's bramble on her pillow, which Willow placed there at the end of "All The Way"), but during the scenes in the shop on that day there are no signs, no banners, no customers - nothing to indicate a huge sale.Shay
Corrected entry: In "I was made to love you", there's no way Spike could have known it was Warren who was into making robot girls. Only the Scoobies had figured it out, and the only time he talks to them in this episode they throw him out of the Magic Shop without mentioning Warren. Even though Spike knew that there was a guy called Warren out there creating robot girls, it took all of Willow's computer savvy and a little bit of luck for Buffy to find him. How would Spike, working only off the first name of a perfectly normal teenager who hadn't been in town in months, track him down?Shay
Corrected entry: When Ben is being stalked by the demon while he's at his locker, he's wearing his medical clothing. Yet, moments later, when Glory grabs the demon from behind, she's back to her usual red dress and make up. If Ben and Glory were truly the same being in that moment, they would be wearing the same clothes, too.Phoebe
Corrected entry: In 'Revelations', after Mrs. Post attacks Giles, when Buffy finds him he manages to tell her that living flame must be used to destroy the Glove of Mynhgon before the paramedics take him away. Since Angel already knew this, wouldn't it have been much more useful if he had warned her that Mrs. Post was an imposter?Shay
Corrected entry: In 'The Wish', considering the necklace is the source of all Anya's powers she's fairly careless with it. She puts it around Cordy's neck and lets her take it into the Bizzaro World, where it could easily have been smashed during either of the vampire attacks. In fact, if it hadn't been for Giles the necklace would have been incinerated.Shay
Corrected entry: In 'Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered' we see the interior of Xander's room, and a guitar is resting against the wall in the background. Next season, in 'The Zeppo', he asks Oz if it's hard to play the guitar. If he already has a guitar you'd assume he knew how to play it, or had at least tried to learn in the past year.Shay
Corrected entry: At first Anya supposedly has no knowledge of what happened during the events of 'The Wish', since she is as mystified as Cordelia to find her necklace gone. During 'Doppelgangland', however, she seems to know exactly what happened; she discusses it with D'Hoffryn and recognises Vampire Willow as soon as she sees her.Shay
Corrected entry: During his fight with the slayer during the Boxer Rebellion, Spike is cut on his left eyebrow. This was done to give a reason for James Marsters' real scar, but vampires can regenerate. Later in the season, Spike is tortured and beaten by Glory without a scar to show for it after he healed. For that scar to be there, Spike would have to be cut before he was turned into a vampire.
Corrected entry: In the season seven episode 'Him' any girl who sees RJ wearing his jacket falls in love with him.However,when Buffy, Willow and Xander are in the Bronze watching Dawn dance with RJ, RJ is wearing his magic jacket but Buffy and Willow don't fall under the spell until they see him later on in the episode.
Corrected entry: Why would Willow choose the school of all places to do the spell to restore Angel's soul in 'Becoming'? Wouldn't it have made more sense to do it in someone's house, seeing as how the vampires were free to enter the school and attack but would have been kept out of their houses.Shay
Corrected entry: In the episode "Beauty and the Beasts" where Buffy has to see the school psychiatrist she finds him dead in his office, when she walks into his office she says she's on time for her two o'clock appointment but the clock over the door of the office reads twenty past four.
00:25:55 - 00:26:55
Corrected entry: Giles says in 'The Wish' that destroying Anyanka's power source will reverse all her wishes. Surely Cordelia's can't have been the only wish that caused a temporal fold or similar history changing event? And if not, then shouldn't the world now be radically different in some way?Shay
Corrected entry: In the opening episode to season 6, the Scoobies are using the BuffyBot to try to make everyone think that the Slayer is still alive. If that's so important, then why do they have her grave marked with a headstone with her name on it? 'The Wish' proves that bad guys do know her name. Vampire Xander: "Buffy. Isn't that what they call the Slayer?" This shows that the smarter demons and vampires do have some idea who she is. Add the fact that it wasn't just demons but Dawn's school and Mr. Summers they were trying to trick into thinking Buffy was alive and a marked tombstone is a very bad idea.
Corrected entry: In 'Once More With Feeling', look closely at Parking Ticket Woman's car. There is no glass at all in the left hand side, presumably to avoid the camera's reflection being visible. The windows aren't just rolled down - even the smallest one at the back is missing, and that one can't be rolled down.Shay
Corrected entry: In the scene where Glory first has Spike, she says she wants to have a look at him and he tells her to sod off. She then punches him and he goes flying across the room. As soon as he starts to fly backwards you can see that his arms go flailing outwards, yet in the scene right before and right after, his hands are clealy tied behind his back so they would not be able to move about as they do.
Corrected entry: In Becoming Pt 2, Willow is in a coma due to head trauma, and hospitalized. I'm not a doctor, but wouldn't a coma patient in a hospital be hooked up to some machines, at least an IV? When she is shown in the hospital bed, she isn't hooked up to anything at all.
Corrected entry: In the season 5 episode 'Fool For Love' Drusilla and Spike mention how amazing a Slayer's blood is - far better than any other kind (a point repeated by many other vampires during the course of the show), so why in 'Becoming Part 1' did Drusilla not drain Kendra after she slit her throat? As far as she knew she was in no hurry, so why did she pass up on the best blood in the world?Shay
Corrected entry: In the episode 'Chosen', roughly 30 Slayers and Spike attack the Hellmouth and leave the civilians alone upstairs to stop the escaping Ubervamps. Wouldn't it have made more sense to leave a few of the Slayers upstairs to fight with them? They could have easily beaten back the Ubervamps and Bringers, instead Andrew and Anya (the two weakest members of the gang) are left alone at one escape route, leading to Anya's death.Shay
Corrected entry: In the season 7 episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me', during the fight at the start Spike stakes the vampire about to kill Robin with the wooden handle of a shovel. As he pulls it away you can see in the next shot that it's the end with the metal head that's facing Robin, not the wooden end.Shay
Corrected entry: For most of Series 7 there is a girl from Hong Kong among the Potentials. No one can speak Cantonese and she doesn't speak any English, so how did Giles convince her to get on a plane with him and fly to America? She wasn't sent by her watcher - Giles states very clearly in 'First Date' that she never had a watcher, and in 'Potential' Buffy mentions to the others that 'Giles has gone to Hong Kong to find the Potential there.'Shay
Corrected entry: In the very first episode, Cordelia describes Sunnydale as being a very small town. Well, for a small Californian town, it grows at a spectacular rate. Since then, we have seen the town magically develop two universities, another high school, docks, a beach, a zoo, a funfair, an army base, bus depot, train station, airport, 43 churches and a miniature golf course, which earlier on, Willow makes a point of saying doesn't exist in Sunnydale. Now that's what I call urban development.
Corrected entry: When Amy is de-ratted in season 6 she is quite strong, almost as strong as Willow - she can move things with a glance and turn people into goats with a wave of her hand. But when she turned herself into a rat in season 3 she had nowhere near this level of power - if she did she could have escaped from MOO with ease, and not in a way that left her a rodent for 3 years. How have Amy's powers grown so much?Shay
Corrected entry: Whenever a character indirectly causes an innocent death (ie, Giles in 'The Dark Age' or Anya in 'Selfless') they have understandably been shown to feel a lot of guilt, showing that civilian deaths aren't just taken for granted. In 'Once More, With Feeling' Xander raises a demon that kills at least 3 people, yet there is no reproachment from the others or obvious guilt on his part. Why?Shay
Corrected entry: In 'Normal Again', season 6, we learn that Buffy was in a mental clinic after telling her parents about vampires. In 'Becoming', season 2, when Joyce found out the truth about Sunnydale why didn't she mention this? It had only happened a year or two before, and a simple 'Oh god, Buffy, you were right' or 'Sorry for sending you to the funny farm, sweetie' would have been the obvious thing for her to say.Shay
Corrected entry: In the season 3 episode "Doppelgangland", which originally aired in 1999, Anya told a barman that she was 1120. This would mean she was born in 879 AD. But in the season 7 episode "Selfless", a flashback to 880 AD showed her as a young woman (about 20). She should've only been one year old.
Corrected entry: In "Him", after Xander has his flashback to "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" he smiles and says 'Good times...', but during that episode he explicity stated that he hated what was happening. Nearly being axe murdered by a crazed horde of women shouldn't be a happy memory, it should be a traumatic one.Shay
Corrected entry: In 'Hell's Bells' the only part of Dawn's conversation Anya could have heard is "...he's just run off and no one can find him". Given that she had already been told the cleric had run off to perform a C-section how does she instantly realise that it's Xander Dawn is talking about? Shouldn't her first thought be that Dawn is talking about the missing cleric?Shay
Corrected entry: When Buffybot shorts out in the alley in 'Bargaining, part 1' she automatically returns to the Summers home to find Willow, suggesting she goes wherever Willow is likely to be. Later in the episode when she's wounded by Razor she runs straight to the grave where the others are. Shouldn't her first objective have been to return to the Summers house, and if not, how did she know where they would be?Shay
Corrected entry: It has always troubled me that no-one ever thinks to try using a gun on the demons. The Rocket Launcher worked on The Judge in Series 2, so why not just try a gun? Especially on people like Caleb, who appears to be human, why waste two potential slayers on trying to fight him when you could just shoot him? Or at least see if it worked.
Corrected entry: When the gang are preparing for the big showdown, Andrew gets out a piece of paper and starts to do a Thank You speech. Anya interrupts him and leads him away, putting her arm around his shoulder. She is on his left hand side as they turn. The shot changes and we see them leave in the background, only now, Anya is on Andrew's right hand side.
Corrected entry: When we flashback to Buffy telling everyone she is going to share the Slayer's power using the axe/sythe-thingy, she says that it is time for them to make a choice. They can all choose to take on the power and fight with her. As Willow is doing the spell, we see lots of other Potentials around the world receiving the power. But they were never allowed the choice. And what if one of the Potentials listening to Buffy's inspirational speech had said, "OK, we have a choice? Well, I don't want to be any part of this. I don't want to be a Slayer - I want to be a normal teenage girl". She would still have been hit with it because Willow's spell was just 'switching on' all the Potentials out there. There was no choice to be made.
Corrected entry: In the episode 'Crush', after Buffy punches Spike across the room, he follows her home. He says to her, "like it or not, I'm in your life, you can't just shut me out". Then the barrier stops him from entering, but earlier on in the episode, Spike is in Buffy's kitchen, talking to Joyce and Dawn.
Corrected entry: Willow had a head trauma, and a big bandage on the front of her head. Problem with that is when the bookcase fell on her it never hit her head, far from it in fact. If she did injure her head the injury would be on the back of her head, from where she hit the floor.
Corrected entry: Both times that Anyanka reversed wishes (in 'Beneath You' and 'Selfless') she has had to pay a price - sacrificing her teleportation power and Halfrek, respectively, but in 'Older And Far Away' Halfrek reverses Dawn's wish with no fuss and no penalty at all.Shay
Corrected entry: Faith's little rhyme from Graduation Day Part 2 "Little Miss Muffet counting down from one, three, oh" actually refers to Dawn's arrival. One and three are odd numbers, and the next in the sequence is five, which was Dawn's first season. Also, in the season 5 episode Real Me, the crazy guy says to Dawn "Curds and whey" outside the Magic Box, and that's part of the next line to the Little Miss Muffet rhyme.
Corrected entry: Spike must have had his chip implanted while he was unconcious. If so, how did he attack the Initiative scientists without any pain when he tried to escape? You could argue that they programmed him to be capable of violence within the Initiative only, but why would super smart scientists program an evil being to be able to escape at the first opportunity?Phoebe
Corrected entry: In 'Out of Mind, Out of Sight' Giles says that it's a lack of people noticing her added to the mystical strength of the Hellmouth that turned Marcy invisible, but at the end of the episode it's revealed that there's a whole classroom of people who have turned invisible. How did all of them turn invisible without the Hellmouth's influence?Shay
Corrected entry: Buffy died in the first season (but comes back to life of course) and Kendra gets called to take her place technically becoming the chosen one. When Kendra dies, Faith come into the picture and becomes the chosen one. So in fact there are two chosen slayers now, Buffy and Faith. But in the last season the First are out only to get Buffy. They should be going after Faith as well seeing that both Faith and Buffy are the chosen slayers at this point.
Corrected entry: In the season 7 finale "Chosen" Faith says to Buffy "You have to live like a person now, you're not the one and only chosen any more." Technically, Buffy hasn't been the one and only chosen since she died at the end of season 1. Though we did not see it, at that very second Kendra was called.
Corrected entry: The episode, 'The Wish', is where Buffy had never come to Sunnydale and the vampires had taken over Giles knew there was a vampire problem before Cordelia shows up and tells him to call Buffy in. Giles knew about Buffy before Cordelia tells him so why didn't Giles call Buffy about the problem before it got so out of hand if he already knew of her and the problem.
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.
Corrected entry: In the episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me' Spike and Dru are waiting for Spike's mother when the enters her living room, but how did they get into the house? Even entering his former home a vampire needs an invitation, and since she was surprised to see them she couldn't have been the one who let them in.Shay
Corrected entry: In the opener of season 6, Buffy has to dig her way out of her own grave because the others were driven away before they could finish the spell and don't know she's alive, but what were they planning to do if they had finished the spell? They had no shovels to dig her out, so were they planning on bringing her back to life then letting her asphyxiate in her grave?
