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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
