Visible crew/equipment: Near the end after freeing the prisoners, Buffy fends off Ken's henchmen on a raised platform. At some point during the fight she is grabbed by one of the henchmen and punched in the stomach by two others. She then breaks free and throws one of them off the raised platform - onto a large crash mat. Please note that this is a separate mistake to the one already submitted as it is talking about a different crash mat.THGhost
Continuity mistake: When Cordelia is being tied up in the corridor, Buffy leaps up, kicks the attacker, and drops to the ground next to Cordelia. In the next shot the attacker is stumbling to his feet, and Buffy is standing again, then quickly kneels down beside Cordy.
Revealing mistake: When Buffy is fighting the vampires that are trying to resurrect The Master, at one point she is grabbed from behind by a male vampire and kicks a female vampire in a green top twice (right after Absalom shouts "The sacrifices! Stop them!"). If you watch closely, both of the kicks miss the vampire, revealing that the fight was choreographed. The punch that she delivers to the male vampire afterwards also looks fake.THGhost
Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode when the Mayor releases the vampire from his cage and lets him cut his head in half, you can tell that the Mayor's head is a still image when it fixes itself. The expression on his face doesn't change at all and looks completely unrealistic.THGhost
Plot hole: Healing Angel requires draining the blood of a Slayer. Buffy tries to kill Faith in order to get some of her blood but Faith gets away after Buffy stabs her at the end of "Graduation Day Part 1." The amount of blood on the dagger that she used wouldn't be enough blood to heal Angel, but it'd be a start. So why didn't Buffy just use some of the blood on the dagger? In the very first shot of "Graduation Day Part 2" we see the dagger coated with the stuff.THGhost
Character mistake: When Buffy is looking around the new high school, encountering the first sign of the school being haunted, there is a notice board in one of the corridors entitled "theatre". This is the British spelling. Sunnydale is in America and therefore the word should be spelled "theater".THGhost
Revealing mistake: When Willow opens the door to the basement to look for Buffy, the shot looking up the basement's staircase shows Willow's shadow on the inside of the door. In the previous shot when she opened the door, it opens towards a wall and a staircase to the second floor. But there is no light source coming from the wall or the staircase, giving the impression that the basement was filmed on a separate set.THGhost
Revealing mistake: Right at the beginning of the episode, Buffy is sat outside with Willow and Willow is levitating a pencil. The pencil is obviously CGI as it stands out from the rest of the picture and doesn't cast a shadow. It also disappears from view whenever there is a side-angle shot of Willow.THGhost
Plot hole: Buffy saves Angel from Balthazar by dropping a light into the tub of water that he's sitting in. But why would the tub have been put directly underneath a light? Balthazar was being kept alive throughout the episode, wouldn't having a light above him be a bit unwise?THGhost
Revealing mistake: Both the good and evil Willows' faces are barely seen onscreen at the same time due to them being played by the same actress, but when they occasionally are the good Willow stands out from the picture more than the evil Willow. She must have been filmed separately from the good Willow and edited in later.THGhost
Continuity mistake: The scene where Xander is on his skateboard, he becomes distracted seeing Buffy walk up the stairs and accidentally hits the pole. When the camera pans back, you can see Buffy is out of view, and is nowhere to be seen. Because she was still at the top of the stairs when Xander hit the pole, you should have been able to see her walking in the background.
Continuity mistake: Right as Buffy gets out of the car and watches Joyce drive away, Cordelia and her friend are walking up the stairs, along with a girl in a blue shirt at the top of the stairs walking towards the school. The next shot Buffy is walking towards the stairs, Cordelia is already far away chatting with her friend and the girl is blue is back on the stairs again. (00:27:00)
