Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Corrected entry: Near the end of the episode they are fighting the vampires in the front lawn of a house. Buffy breaks the pole off a mailbox and uses it to stake a vampire. In the shot where she broke it off the ends are uneven, but in the very next shot one end has a point like a stake. (00:31:10)

Correction: One end of the stake is longer then the others. When Buffy pulls the pole out of the vampire, we see only one side of it, which has the longer end. This makes it look like it has a point. If you look at it when she throws it to the ground, you can see the ends are uneven.

Corrected entry: Why is the loan shark trying to kill Spike at the start? If he stakes him he's never going to get his kittens. Surely it would be better to torture him with crosses or holy water?


Correction: If you watch in slowmo you can see that, though the stake was at the proper height for Spike's heart, it was a little wide and would actually have shot behind him. It was a warning to get Spike's attention. Buffy couldn't predict this and acted to protect him anyway.


Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Corrected entry: When they all collapse in the magic box, Spike is kind of slumped over on the counter but then in the next shot he's lying comfortably on his back with his arms crossed behind his head.

Correction: Many people move around in their sleep, and Spike could have stretched out while asleep without falling off the counter as he does later. I'm sure he's slept in many a narrow space in his time and his body can unconsciously roll him around without taking a lot of space.

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.
