Buffy The Vampire Slayer mistake picture

Wrecked - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: Just before Buffy storms out on Spike, she puts on her denim jacket. When viewed from in front we can see the jacket is only half over her shoulders and her hair is loose. The shot cuts to view her from behind, and the jacket is now completely on and her hair is tucked under the collar.


Entropy - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When Buffy gives Dawn a pancake, Dawn does not eat, however, it is gone from her plate at the end of the scene.

The I In Team - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: The first shot of Maggie Walsh being impaled from behind with the skewer indicates that there is no one standing close by, judging by the amount of negative space around her. However, following shots reveal that the skewer is coming straight out of Adam's wrist, therefore he should have been visible in the previous shot.

Him - S7-E6

Revealing mistake: In the scene after Dawn gets rescued from the train, when Xander and Spike are about to steal the jacket, you can see Spike's reflection in the electronics store window. Since Spike is a vampire, he does not have a reflection. (00:39:45)

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Plot hole: In the flashback to Buffy in L.A., how did Angel get there with the front windshield of his car blacked out? Being a vampire, he obviously needs it during the day, but he also wouldn't be able to see traffic. And it just seems to be too much of hassle for him to remove it at sunset, just to reapply it at sunrise, just to remove it again, etc.

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Graduation Day, Part 1' when Giles stabs the Mayor, as he takes the foil out of his chest you can see a wound on his shirt. When the shot changes it has disappeared. I know the Mayor is invincible and his wound heal in seconds, but it still takes a second or two for his wounds to close up, they don't just disappear. (00:15:40)


Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Revealing mistake: The knives Giles throws during Buffy's training are a very poor CGI job if you watch it in slow mo. All three knives Giles takes off the wall are identical, with a broad curved blade and a plain black handle. The first one has a transparent blade as it flies toward Buffy, then we hear it bounce off the far wall and it's way out of scale for the distance. The second knife has a diamond-patterned grip instead of a plain one. The third knife conveniently spins in midair for a second so Buffy can kick it out of the way. (00:30:35)

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: The finger changes position in Buffy's hand as she picks it up. (00:23:35)


School Hard - S2-E3

Plot hole: After Buffy talks to her mum and Sheila arrives at the school as Spike and his minions come looking for her, there is a vampire standing in the hallway guarding one of the doors who fails to notice any of them whispering, very loudly.


Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Plot hole: Giles goes to Buffy's house fully aware that there are zombies around, but he doesn't bring any weapons with him.


The Prom - S3-E20

Other mistake: When we first see one of the Hellhounds at the clothes store that Cordelia works at, it jumps through the window, smashing the glass, and then attacks a customer who's wearing a tuxedo. But the Hellhound attacks the customer several seconds after it smashes through the window, giving the customer a chance to escape. But the customer just stands there unaware of the Hellhound, having not heard the window being smashed.


Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: Towards the end, when Buffy stabs Faith, there is no blood whatsoever.


A New Man - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When Willow and Buffy are having breakfast, in the shot facing Willow she picks up her glass of orange juice and when the shot changes to Buffy picking up her coffee cup you can see the glass is still on the table and then Willow's hand reaching for it again.

The Initiative - S4-E7

Character mistake: At Riley's party, Willow tells him that Buffy is wearing a halter top when she is in fact wearing a strappy top. Being a girl, and extremely into fashion at this stage in her life after her high school years, she should have known better.


Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Plot hole: After losing his soul, Angelus kills Jenny Calender's uncle, who is a descendant of the gypsy clan who cursed him. But, since there is nothing to suggest the uncle's room is in a public location, Angelus couldn't have gotten in the room without an invitation.

Life Serial - S6-E5

Plot hole: In the 3rd time loop at the magic shop, the woman looking for the mummy hand looks surprised when Buffy knows what she wants. In the 2nd time loop, the woman tells Buffy that she called the shop 20 minutes earlier and was told that they had one. Therefore at least one of the shop's staff would be aware that a woman would be arriving looking for a mummy hand.


Welcome To The Hellmouth (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Xander is talking to the girl at the Bronze his hand is on the pole and off the pole throughout.


Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: When Buffy and Angel are sword-fighting, the camera pans up and to the side, you can see David Boreanaz's stunt double. His hair line is farther back then David Boreanaz's.


Two To Go (1) - S6-E21

Visible crew/equipment: After Anya teleports to the jail leaving Buffy and Xander in the forest, the shadow of cameraman walking backwards can be seen as Buffy and Xander make their way to Xander's car. Look closely, the shadow is visible and Buffy tells Xander not to be too sure about Anya being able to handle Willow tonight.


The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Right before Spike jabs Buffy in the face on the college's campus, there are a ton of people around. But after he jabs her in the face and they start fighting, all of the people are gone.
