Buffy The Vampire Slayer

The Freshman - S4-E1

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).

Correction: That's not a mistake. All this proves is that even in the Buffyverse, tennis rackets can be poorly made.


The Freshman - S4-E1

Corrected entry: The vampires shouldn't be able to get into Eddie's room without his permission. Or does that rule change when the person who owns the property has died?

Correction: Once the owner is dead, the rule no longer applies. Not that it entirely matters in this particular case - dorm rooms, like hotel rooms, are not deemed to be 'owned' by the occupiers, they're considered to be public spaces. As such, the vampires can enter freely.

The Freshman - S4-E1

Corrected entry: Several times throughout the show, we have seen that Angel - a vampire - cannot enter Buffy (and Willow's) dorm room on the college campus, due to the invites only rule for vampires. So how did Sunday's vampires get in to steal all of Buffy's things?


Correction: There are only two other times that we see vampires enter dorm rooms. Once was Spike (The Initiative), the other time was Angel (The Yoko Factor). Neither time is it made clear that the vampires CAN'T enter the room without an invite, but likely just wait for the invite out of habit. so it's entirely possible, since it's seen that school buildings are considered public, that vampires really don't need an invite to enter the rooms at all.

The Freshman - S4-E1

Corrected entry: On Buffy's first day of school, both her folders and the school banners use the acronym UCD, though the school is actually University of California Sunnydale. The crew used the fliers from UC Davis.

Correction: The folders have a sun between the UC and the D. The folders then read UC(sun)D for UC Sunnydale.

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.



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.



The accent that Giles uses as his teenage self is Anthony Head's natural accent.
