Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Plot hole: Spike makes it clear when talking to Buffy that he wants Angel dead. Yet later on, when Buffy confronts Angel and says she doesn't think she can take them all on alone, Spike only knocks Angel down when he easily could have staked or beheaded him.

Into The Woods - S5-E10

Plot hole: How did Buffy know where to find Riley at the end of 'Into The Woods'? He told her he was leaving with the army, but he never mentioned the helicopter pad. (00:40:30)

Shay

Two To Go (1) - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: Where Willow is pulling the bricks out of the jail near the beginning of the episode. When she first pulls the bricks out of the arch thing they are from a different area than when you see the arch from the inside of the jail, even allowing it to be 'inside out' (as seen from outside and then the inside).

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is told that Angel has become Angelus, she mentions "I should have known. When I saw him at the house he was different", but her earlier conversation with him took place not at the house but at his apartment. This isn't just a strange turn of phrase - the scene was originally shot at the Summers house, but was changed to Angel's apartment for more emotional resonance.

Shay

Dead Things - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: In the episode (series six) where Buffy thinks she killed Warren's ex-girlfriend, when she's at the police station, in the over the shoulder shot of Desk Sergeant, he is holding the phone between his shoulder and ear. But in the front shot of him the phone has jumped to his hand. (00:36:45)

Lie To Me - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is fighting the vampire in the alley, it's fairly obvious that it's her stunt double fighting because Sarah's hair is slightly shorter, and isn't as full at the ends.

Issabee

Reptile Boy - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is at the party, we see that she is wearing black shoes with a high heel. But when she is fighting Machida, the heels are considerably lower.

Issabee

Get It Done - S7-E15

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Get It Done' when Dawn and Buffy find Chloe's corpse the door across the hall from them is open. When it cuts back to them after the ad break it is shut, but there has been no time lapse.

Shay

Consequences - S3-E15

Other mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley he says "So you heard the man scream about what time?", but Finch didn't scream as he died.

Shay

Bring On The Night - S7-E10

Plot hole: When the First has the Toruk-Han torturing Spike it hold his head under water. Hardly torture seeing as Spike is a vampire and doesn't breathe.

Helpless - S3-E12

Plot hole: When Buffy enters the house to rescue her mother she uses a stake to stop the front door from closing. A vampire then grabs it and the door closes. Why did Buffy use a stake knowing that there was a vampire there when she was almost killed by a vampire with her own stake earlier in the episode because Giles had been injecting her with a muscle relaxant?

THGhost

Gone - S6-E11

Plot hole: For some strange reason, the guard at the arcade allows Buffy and Willow to leave the arcade with the invisibility ray-gun despite having absolutely no idea what it does.

THGhost

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After Buffy finds Dr. Gregory's glasses at the start of Miss French's class and places them on the table, they move position twice throughout the rest of the scene.

THGhost

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Willow visits Xander to discuss what may be going on with Oz; towards the end of the scene, when the camera is on Willow, you can see the sound mike at the top left of the screen next to the green crate in two different shots.

School Hard - S2-E3

Plot hole: When Buffy and Sheila are walking out of school after the meeting with Snyder, Xander runs up to talk to them. He mentions during this scene how Buffy will be helping out at the Parent-Teacher Night, but he shouldn't know this - Buffy only just found out about it in the meeting with Snyder.

Shay

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Ampata tells Buffy she has no lipstick, but earlier that episode we saw her using lipstick, in the high school bathroom right before the bodyguard attacked her. (00:24:20 - 00:25:40)

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: In Graduation Day Part One, when Faith shoots Angel with the longbow, you can see the false point spring out as if it were on a hinge from inside his jacket. (00:22:47)

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: Throughout almost the entire sword fight between Buffy and Angel, from the far away shots, its clear that the actors are stunt doubles. It's very visible when there is a shot from the top. (00:34:05)

Empty Places - S7-E19

Visible crew/equipment: After Buffy has spoken with Clem and is walking down the road, you can see the reflection of a camera in the back of a green SUV.

Same Time, Same Place - S7-E3

Other mistake: We're shown a variety of photographs and pictures of different members of the gang at one point. One of those, the one of Xander and Anya, is actually a shot from the episode "Something Blue". I doubt very much that during the events in that episode, someone conveniently decided to take a photograph.
