Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Consequences - S3-E15

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Mayor and Mr. Trick are reviewing security footage of Buffy and Faith entering Allan's office, Mr. Trick can be seen in the footage. As Mr. Trick is a vampire, this should not be possible, as a vampire's image can't be captured.

Correction: Vampires have no reflection, however, they can show up on film. ("They can be photographed, just not very well" according to Wesley Windham-Price.)

Consequences - S3-E15

Corrected entry: In 'Consequences' how did Wesley know that Faith would be with Angel, or where Angel lived? One episode earlier he didn't even know Angel's name. (00:34:00)


Correction: We know that Giles has researched Angel in the past, and he probably kept this information updated, either in his Watcher diary or somewhere else. We know that Wesley has access to the diaries (we even see him reading them) and the rest of Giles material so if the information was there he just had to go back and find it. Also Xander hates Angel so if Wesley came to him and asked him Xander would likely tell him to get one over on Angel.


Consequences - S3-E15

Corrected entry: How does Wesley have the exact key to fit the manacles in Angel's mansion (in the scene where he frees Faith)? We never see him picking them up or taking them from Angel.


Correction: The Council has access to many magical resources. It's quite likely they have enchanted skeleton keys to fit certain types of locks, especially given what we learn about the Council's wetworks squads.

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.

Homecoming - S3-E5

Question: In this episode Oz says "As Willow goes, so goes my nation". Is this a variation on a famous quote, and if so, which?

Chosen answer: "So goes the nation" seems to have been used on many occasions, with various different US states in the "As .... goes" section. Most commonly it seems to be California that's considered to lead the way, but probably most other states have appeared in the lead role at some point or another. Other things have also been used - no less a person that Pope John Paul II said "As the family goes, so goes the nation...". The origin of the quote format is unclear - in US politics it goes back into the 19th century, when it was Maine that held the title spot, but, while no definitive origin is known, it seems highly likely that it goes back considerably further than that.
