Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Season 7 generally

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.

Correction: The other episodes, the "First" planned the openings. They guided the people there. And there was a bit of a ceremony, maybe to call an ubervamp to the seal. But, in "Chosen" Buffy and the potentials took the fight to them. The opening was their plan, not guided by anyone or anything.


Season 7 generally

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.'


Correction: There would obviously be people in Hong Kong who could speak English and explain everything to her.


Season 7 generally

Corrected entry: In the episode where Spike is having memories of his mother, he tells her that Drusilla made him what he is (a vampire), telling us she is his sire, but in series two we find out that Angel was his sire.

Correction: Joss Whedon has said that technically Angel is Spike's grand sire because Angel is Drusilla's sire but it basically amounts to the same thing.

Continuity mistake: After Buffy finds Morgan's brain, Willow pulls up Morgan's school file on one of the library computers without even touching the keyboard. One moment the monitor is on the desktop, the next it's showing Morgan's file.

Touched - S7-E20

Spike: You listen to me. [Kneels in front of her.] I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. [Buffy looks away; he reaches toward her face.] Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you, " it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.
Buffy: [Quietly.] I don't wanna be the one.

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?


Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.
