Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the final episode, Willow turns all the Potential girls into Slayers, so they can fight the army of uber-vamps. This is obviously wrong because of episode 7.11, "Showtime", when one uber-vamp alone beats the bejeezus out of experienced slayer Buffy. There is no way 30 or so newly-formed slayers could've taken out thousands of uber-vamps, much less the humans who kill several themselves.

Correction: This has already been addressed. The reason that the first Ubervamp was so difficult was that they weren't sure how to kill it. Buffy thought it couldn't be staked; turns out she just needed to put much more force behind the blow. When the Potentials become Slayers they have the same strength. Buffy was also forced to fight the first Ubervamp without weapons. When the ordinary humans are fighting at the end they are all armed with heavy blades to decapitate the vamps.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Buffy and the rest of the gang are down in the Hellmouth, one of the slayers says ''I'm zipping back to Xander's whole bathroom speech'' - Xander didn't have a bathroom speech at that time. Xander did have a bathroom speech at one time but that was when Riley came to see Buffy.

Correction: When they all entered the school, Xander said 'Anyone who has to go to the bathroom, please go now.'

Corrected entry: Spike walks into the school in the middle of the day with only his duster for protection. He should be dust, or at least smouldering a little bit.

Shay

Correction: Fair enough he would have been smouldering ,however, in the shot from outside the school you can see Spike with a blanket over his head and once it cuts to inside you can see him throwing the blanket off, so he was covered up after all.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In season 7, the first Ubervamp to escape the Hellmouth and attack Buffy is incredibly strong and hard to kill - in the end it's pure luck that lets Buffy defeat it. In 'Chosen', people (including the civilians) are killing Ubervamps all over the place with ease; if they're this easy to kill, why did Buffy struggle so much with the first one? Granted, Andrew says in the meantime that Ubervamps can actually be staked, but Anya adds that it's like pushing a stake through solid steel. Buffy couldn't stake one of them the first time, so how can the Potentials (who haven't anywhere near as much training or muscle power as Buffy) can do it with ease?

Shay

Correction: The Potentials have the same raw strength Buffy does but less training thanks to Willow's spell. Buffy had trouble staking the first Ubervamp because she put only the force necessary to kill a normal vamp behind the blow, which wasn't enough to break through the Ubervamp's chest. It's very normal in everyday actions to only use enough muscle power as you would expect to otherwise. Once they know to stake Ubervamps with enough force to go through a normal vamp's back, they have less trouble. All the non-Slayers kill Ubervamps with decapitation.

Corrected entry: Buffy says to the rest of the group "Tomorrow morning I will be going down into the hellmouth to finish this once and for all". Trouble is, Buffy didn't actually say at what time. So how did the rest of the group know what time they had to meet Buffy downstairs?

Correction: Well, we dont see EVERY second of their lives, she could have easily told someone off screen. Or she could have woken a few of them up.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the season 7 finale "Chosen" Buffy gets stabbed by an Ubervamp. In one scene you see blood running down her shirt but in the final scene she walks towards where Sunnydale had been and her shirt is clean.

Correction: We see Buffy get stabbed through het white shirt in the cavern, but when walking towards the "Sunnydale crater" at the end, she has her arms crossed, with a beige jacket (which she has been wearing all the time) underneath her arms covering up the blood on the shirt, so its simply the clean jacket we see not the bloodied shirt.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Chosen', roughly 30 Slayers and Spike attack the Hellmouth and leave the civilians alone upstairs to stop the escaping Ubervamps. Wouldn't it have made more sense to leave a few of the Slayers upstairs to fight with them? They could have easily beaten back the Ubervamps and Bringers, instead Andrew and Anya (the two weakest members of the gang) are left alone at one escape route, leading to Anya's death.

Shay

Correction: In a fight like that, with an almost unlimited number of ubervamps, wouldn't you want all of your big guns on the front line? The less slayers on the front line, the bigger the number of ubervamps that get by.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: When the gang are preparing for the big showdown, Andrew gets out a piece of paper and starts to do a Thank You speech. Anya interrupts him and leads him away, putting her arm around his shoulder. She is on his left hand side as they turn. The shot changes and we see them leave in the background, only now, Anya is on Andrew's right hand side.

Correction: This is because they turn independantly, not as a unit. It is quicker to turn the way they did. The result will have their orientation with respect to each other reversed, but everyone else will see them in the same place just looking the other direction.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: Buffy gets all the Potentials together and does another inspirational speech, telling them her plan to turn them all into Slayers. Chao-Ahn is there. This is the girl who doesn't speak English, so who in the Buffyverse is going to explain what was just said?

Correction: Given the amount of dictionaries we see lying round the house in 'Get It Done', we can assume that Chao-Ahn isn't the only Potential who doesn't speak English, but there is a way to communicate with them (albeit slow and time-consuming). It wouldn't be that hard to fill her and the rest of them in on the basics of the plan; just because we never saw it doesn't mean it never happened offscreen.

Corrected entry: When we flashback to Buffy telling everyone she is going to share the Slayer's power using the axe/sythe-thingy, she says that it is time for them to make a choice. They can all choose to take on the power and fight with her. As Willow is doing the spell, we see lots of other Potentials around the world receiving the power. But they were never allowed the choice. And what if one of the Potentials listening to Buffy's inspirational speech had said, "OK, we have a choice? Well, I don't want to be any part of this. I don't want to be a Slayer - I want to be a normal teenage girl". She would still have been hit with it because Willow's spell was just 'switching on' all the Potentials out there. There was no choice to be made.

Correction: The choice was not about getting the power but about using the power to fight alongside Buffy and Faith, which could easily lead to death.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the season 7 finale "Chosen" Faith says to Buffy "You have to live like a person now, you're not the one and only chosen any more." Technically, Buffy hasn't been the one and only chosen since she died at the end of season 1. Though we did not see it, at that very second Kendra was called.

Correction: Maybe Buffy hasn't been the only Slayer, but she's always conisdered herself to be the main Slayer (referring to Kendra as 'The Rookie' and talking down to Faith). Also, for the last 4 years she has technically been the only active Slayer since Faith was in a coma, then in prison.

Quotes

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.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

In addition to singing "Rest in Peace," James Marsters also played the song's guitar track.
