Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: When we see a flashback of Spike with Drusilla, Drusilla doesn't seem to be insane, but Angel turned her insane by torturing her before making her a vampire, and she's a vampire in the flashback.

Correction: It's shown after the "What's My Line" two parter that when she's at full strength, Drusilla's ramblings are less crazed and more related to her current situations. She's always been insane, but she can (at times) make perfect sense. The reason she seemed like a deranged mental patient when she was first introduced is because she'd nearly been killed and was still fragile and displaced.


Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: In the scene where Spike's mother is singing the trigger song to him, she sings "Early one morning, just as the sun was shining." Every other time this song is sung by The First, and on the MP3 Woods plays, the words are "Early one morning, just as the sun was rising."

Correction: It's the tune that triggers Spike rather than the lyrics. Different artists tend to alter the lyrics when singing folk songs, and this may be the only version Robin could find.


Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: In the season 7 episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me', during the fight at the start Spike stakes the vampire about to kill Robin with the wooden handle of a shovel. As he pulls it away you can see in the next shot that it's the end with the metal head that's facing Robin, not the wooden end.


Correction: If you watch more carefully when Spike pulls out the shovel (just slightly off screen), we see him spin the shovel around, so in the next shot the metal part in facing Robin.


Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me' Spike and Dru are waiting for Spike's mother when the enters her living room, but how did they get into the house? Even entering his former home a vampire needs an invitation, and since she was surprised to see them she couldn't have been the one who let them in.


Correction: If no living person claims ownership of the house then vampires can enter as they please. Seeing Spike with his mother it is probably safe to assume that it was his house and she was a long term guest not an official resident.


Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is talking to Riley, she puts the scarf on her head, on his hand. He talks to her and says "Maybe I am the bad guy," and in the next frame her scarf is back on her head again, then off again in the next frame. (00:24:20)

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?


Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.
