Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Revelations - S3-E7

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?

Correction: Giles says the Council "swears there was a memo." It's quite possible that this was just the Council trying to cover itself, since there was no communication to agents in the field - the event was so obvious to people in the Council that they didn't think it necessary to make a specific communication about it.


Revelations - S3-E7

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?


Correction: This mistake falls under the "why" rule. Giles took a nasty knock to the head and is currently in an emergent medical situation, so it's not surprising that he isn't thinking clearly. In this state, it is more important to tell Buffy how to destroy the Glove immediately and prevent it from falling into anyone's hands than to tell her to keep it away from one specific person.


Halloween - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Willow is turned into a ghost. Throughout the entire episode, she can't touch anything (can't turn the pages of a book, etc.), yet towards the end when she and Giles go to Ethan's shop, and she leaves, you can hear that she opened and closed the door, even though she can walk through walls and can't actually touch the door. The curtain moves when she leaves too. (00:34:05)

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.

Touched - S7-E20

Question: How come Buffy can move so fast when she's fighting Kaleb?

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
