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)Shay
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).
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.troy fox
Continuity mistake: After the 'hell hogs' interrupt the ritual, Xander pulls Willow out of the way. He then tells Anya and Tara to "take off." which they appear to do, starting to run Into The Woods. But then in the next shot, they are back standing still in the clearing (on the left of the shot).
Continuity mistake: When Buffy wakes up she is wearing metallic nail polish, yet when she went to sleep previously, she has no nail polish on. Later in a scene where Buffy is dreaming about her night with Angel she has the nail polish on again, even though that took place the night before when she did not have her nails painted. (00:01:15)
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Buffy is running from the large saws and jumps out the door, she sits up and you can see the book is fully intact and in one piece. After the opening credits Tara picks up the same book and it falls apart from being cut in half.
Revealing mistake: One of the arrows that Spike gets hit with passes through just below his left shoulder, but there are times when you can tell that it is a fake arrow because the part of the arrow sticking out at the front moves and the part at the back does not. Look at the arrow just after Buffy turns Hus into a bear.THGhost
Continuity mistake: When Willow is out with Kennedy, Willow tells her that she doesn't get why she likes her. As she says "I still don't get it", she pulls her hair back over her left ear. Then when she says "Why you like me" in the following shot, her hair is hanging back down over her left ear again.THGhost
Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy and Dawn are at the top of the metal tower, and Buffy is still very dazed from being called back, there is an overhead shot with a piece of the tower falling down; if you look left of the falling piece, you can see a guy wearing a hard hat walking about.Andrea_Verga
Visible crew/equipment: When Xander and Anya pull over in the ice-cream van, the front windscreen is very reflective. To avoid reflecting the camera crew, a giant screen was put in front of the ice-cream van - which, ironically, is reflected in the windscreen. It isn't a reflection of another vehicle parked in front of them as the thing that is reflected is a curved shape.THGhost
Continuity mistake: When the Cavemen knock out Willow, she lands flat on her front. Later on, one of the Cavemen watches Willow as she lies unconscious, and she is now lying on her back. Then when Buffy finds her when the building is burning down, she is back on her front.THGhost
