Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Bargaining (2) - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Spike is looking out the window at the demons rampaging in the street outside Buffy's house, Dawn can be standing behind him with her hair trailing down below her breasts. In the next shot, when Spike pulls her away from the window, her hair is pulled back behind her shoulders despite her not having moved. (00:53:10)

Flooded - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: In 'Flooded', Jonathon reads a few things off the board listing the Trio's ultimate aims. One of the things he reads out is "prototype jet-packs that actually fly", but when the list is shown a few seconds later jet packs aren't mentioned on it. (00:27:10)


The Dark Age - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Cordelia tells the Scoobies that Giles was talking to the police about a homicide, but this wasn't mentioned in the time that she was in the room. (00:18:15)

Older And Far Away - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: The security tag on Buffy's new jacket shifts when Buffy first sees it. (00:12:50)


Real Me - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is fighting Mort in Harmony's lair, she knocks him up against the wall in a flurry of blows. In the next shot, he is several steps away from the wall and facing a different direction. (00:38:05)


Shadow - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: When Glory creates the demon snake thing, we see a CGI image of the creature, but Glory and Buffy are nowhere to be seen. When we are shown where they are standing, their position should have been visible when the snake demon was created. (00:27:05)

Crush - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Dawn goes to Spike's crypt we see Spike ascending from below. At first he does not have a cigarette tucked behind his left ear. A few frames later he does, then a few frames after that it is gone again.

Bargaining (2) - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: Buffy's shoes change from being nice shoes, to runners (e.g. When Buffy climbed out of her grave, she had nice shoes, but when she jumped over the fence, she had runners on).

Enemies - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: After Faith brings Angelus back, when she goes to punch him and he blocks, the stuntman switch is very obvious - he's noticeably taller, has different hair and doesn't even seem to be wearing any vampire make-up.


Crush - S5-E14

Revealing mistake: When the porter is dragged back onto the train at the start you can see (more obviously if you watch in slow motion) that there's absolutely nothing grabbing him, not even someone's shadow. (00:04:55)


Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When the gang are in the cafeteria and Giles comes along, Buffy is holding some food in her hand and Giles sits down, but in the next shot she has her drink in her hand and the straw at her mouth.

Chosen - S7-E22

Revealing mistake: Early in the final fight, Vi makes a flying kick to knock an Ubervamp off the cliff. As she lands, she swings back and twists slightly, suspiciously like one would do if suspended on a wire. There is no way she could gain this motion by kicking straight off the vamp as shown. (00:29:00)


Normal Again - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: In the basement, immediately after Buffy pulls her hand out of the demon's chest, her fist is completely dry. Two shots later, it is covered in gooey demon fluid. (00:40:35)


This Year's Girl (1) - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: In 'This Year's Girl' when Faith is taunting Joyce with all Buffy's uncollected mail she flings the envelopes across the bed one by one, scattering them. When Faith is fighting Buffy later on they are all in a pile again. (00:37:20 - 00:38:40)


When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: As Willow, Cordy, Miss. Calendar and Giles are wheeled over the bones of the Master, Giles goes past and his hand brushes against the bones - the skeleton bends, revealing that it is rubber. (00:36:10)

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Anne' when the latest people to be brought into hell are lined up with a demon talking to them, there are 3 or 4 people standing between Buffy and Lily. When the demon asks them all in turn 'Who are you?' we see him asking Lily and after that the shot rests on Buffy, but in the background we only hear him ask one more person before he gets to Buffy. (00:35:50)


Gone - S6-E11

Plot hole: Nobody notices a strange girl (Willow) with a invisibility ray-gun floating next to her talking to four invisible voices in a public arcade and only start to react when a fight breaks out.

The Initiative - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In 'The Initiative', Riley, Graham and Forrest are looking in through the windows of Stevenson Hall with thermal goggles looking for Spike, they see him walking towards Willow. When we see Willow and Spike seconds later he is still sitting on the bed where he was for most of the scene. (00:37:30)


Homecoming - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: In numerous episodes, including 'Homecoming', we see vampires being killed when they weren't stabbed through the heart (the Texan girl vampire in this episode is stabbed practically in the stomach). But the show also makes an issue of the fact you have to stab a vampire directly in the heart to kill it (think the flashback in 'the Becoming, Part 2' where Buffy misses the vampire's heart, or 'Pangs' where Spike gets staked several times).

Lessons - S7-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander is in the bathroom after Buffy called him to look for the talisman, he bends down and grabs the talisman that lays under the sinks. As he stands the camera pans up to the mirrors and on the left side you can see the reflection of a crew member crouching over the hole to the old school. It's not the female manifest spirit as the clothes are wrong and she then appears from a different part of the room.
