Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Corrected entry: In "Becoming Part 2" Spike cuts off Drusilla's air to render her unconscious, so that he can take her with him when he flees. But it's been established throughout the show that vampires don't need to breathe, so his choke hold should not have had any result.

Correction: There are two kinds of chokes Spike could have used: the air choke and the blood choke. The air choke is obviously a way of suffocation and knock out, as well as murder. The other is the blood choke. This compresses the carotid arteries on the sides of Dru's neck, leading to her passing out due to lack of blood supply to the brain. As it has been occasionally mentioned that vamps don't breathe, and the two chokes are almost identical in appearance, Spike certainly seems to have used the blood choke.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

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

Correction: It has been explained by Joss and James Marsters that Spike did not choke Drusilla, he broke her neck.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Corrected entry: How did Buffy know in 'Becoming, Part 2' that it was Drusilla who killed Kendra? Everyone in the library but Kendra was unconcious by the time she entered. (00:17:35)

Shay

Correction: Angelus was fighting Buffy & as far as everyone knew Spike was in a wheelchair, So Buffy is assuming that Angelus would send the strongest vampire he had to make sure the fight went his way.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

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. (00:03:50)

Correction: It is possible to be in a coma without needing to be on life suport. She is obviously not in an ICU, so she probably doesn't need any machines to keep her alive.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Becoming, Part 2' Spike uses a choke hold to subdue Drusilla. What good is a choke hold on a vampire who doesn't breath or have a blood flow to the brain that could be cut off?

Correction: From the buffyguide.com FAQ; 'Vampires do not need to breathe air in order to stay alive. However, like food, vampires do breathe and can do things that require breathing, like talking or smoking. If a vampire is deprived of air for enough time, they will pass out from 'suffocation', but there has never been an incidence of a vampire dying from lack of air. Also, when a vampire breathes in air, *something* happens to it that makes it unusable for CPR, which is why Angel could not save Buffy in Prophecy Girl.
