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.

THGhost

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.

THGhost

Earshot - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: When Buffy beats up the school cook for trying to kill all the students with rat poison, the cook's stunt double is a lot thinner than the actual cook.

THGhost

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Ampata agrees to go to the dance with Xander and they walk off down the hall, a shoe can be seen in the bottom right of the screen within the last few frames stepping into shot.

THGhost

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Other mistake: The Master's skeleton, before it is destroyed, looks to be female and not male. (Note the wide hips and large birth canal-like hole.) Also in the Next season's "When She Was Bad," they have another shot of the same skeleton, however the hips are much smaller and more male. (00:43:55)

Primeval (2) - S4-E21

Plot hole: Willow hacks into The Initiative's computer system and discovers air ducts and electrical conduits leading to Adam behind 314, but the room doesn't show up on the schematic. It seems unlikely that nobody who didn't know about Adam would have noticed this and investigated.

THGhost

Intervention - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: When Spike, Xander, Anya and the Buffybot are attacked by vampires in the cemetery, the grass for the cemetery moves underneath the vampires' feet as if it were a carpet. The cemetery was a sound stage and not an actual cemetery.

THGhost

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When George shoots Mrs. Frank, her body falls off the balcony headfirst on a closeup shot. She flips in the air once on her way down. But in the following wide shot, she flips in the air on her way down again.

THGhost

Storyteller - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: There is a shot where a girl is turning invisible, and when the camera switches to Buffy slapping her, she is fully visible, until it turns back and she is slowly becoming visible again.

Gone - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: After Doris from Social Services leaves Buffy's house and Spike leaves after her, he takes his lighter out of Buffy's pocket. But earlier in the episode when everyone was packing away all of Willow's magic stuff, Buffy finds Spike's lighter and puts it in one of the boxes.

THGhost

Killed By Death - S2-E18

Other mistake: In the basement when Death throws Ryan to the floor, Ryan lands pretty softly considering that he was just thrown pretty hard.

THGhost

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When the gang is in the Magic Box and they pass out, we see Buffy fall on the floor at the top of the stairs, but in the next shot she has moved and is now lying on the steps.

Something Blue - S4-E9

Other mistake: In the scene where Spike escapes from a blind Giles, he pushes Giles out of the way and does not get a shock to the head from the chip in his head, which normally goes off with the most minor hint of violence.

The I In Team - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When you first see Adam lying on the bed, before he wakes up you see his human side of his face on his right side. In the next scene the camera is over Maggie Walsh's shoulder and the human side of his face is now on the left side. Then just after he stabs Maggie it switches back again.

Amends - S3-E10

Other mistake: During this episode near the beginning, Xander says something about Giles not liking Angel to the effect of, "he killed his girlfriend (Jenny) and tortured him." However, the subtitles say "tortured her," not "him."

Hell's Bells - S6-E16

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Anya is going over her wedding vows with Tara, she steps down from her dressing platform. As she steps down, part of the camera can be seen on the far left of the screen, obstructing the shot.

THGhost

Spiral - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: The shape of the hole in the aluminium foil in the Winnebago's windshield changes shape several times throughout the course of the episode.

THGhost

I Was Made To Love You - S5-E15

Revealing mistake: When Giles pushes Spike into the cabinet at the magic shop, you can see Spike's reflection in the glass of the cabinet's doors. But Spike is a vampire and therefore should have no reflection.

THGhost

Touched - S7-E20

Spike: You listen to me. [Kneels in front of her.] I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. [Buffy looks away; he reaches toward her face.] Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you, " it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.
Buffy: [Quietly.] I don't wanna be the one.

Touched - S7-E20

Question: How come Buffy can move so fast when she's fighting Kaleb?

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
