Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Anne - S3-E1

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.

Some Assembly Required - S2-E2

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.

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Other mistake: When Robin Wood is burying Jonathan, Jonathan's face flinches when the first heap of dirt lands on his legs.

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

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.

Lessons - S7-E1

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

Spiral - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Glory gets hit by a truck, she lands on the roof of a car twice.

THGhost

Nightmares - S1-E10

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

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)

Spiral - S5-E20

Revealing mistake: Watch the shot of Glory as she is hit by the truck at the beginning of the episode (easier to see in slow-mo/frame-by-frame). She isn't hit by the truck at all. It goes right past her. A simple optical illusion used in filmmaking for decades.

THGhost

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Other mistake: At the end the library that was rigged with explosives blows up. But the school's main entrance and the clock tower blow up as well, even though they are not rigged with explosives.

THGhost

Hush - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: When the Gentlemen are chasing Tara in Stevenson Hall, in the first hallway two Gentlemen are floating down the corridor and you can tell they're on wires because the one on the screen's left "jumps" a little as if his wires got snagged.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

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

Bad Girls - S3-E14

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

Bad Girls - S3-E14

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

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

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

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: When evil Willow licks good Willow's neck the neck that you see is a lot longer than either of theirs. Since both Willows' faces cannot be filmed at the same time a body double must have been used for this shot.

THGhost

The Body - S5-E16

Visible crew/equipment: Buffy and the gang are in the waiting room after being told the cause of Joyce's death. After Willow asks "Why don't we sit down?" the camera pans from right to left and the camera focused on Dawn becomes visible at screen left. Some frames later it appears again as Dawn leaves to "pee" and the camera zooms out. (00:32:55)

Kistunenene

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy is going through the murdered Professor's office, Angel seems to trip through the doorway. To the top right above Angel's head a boom mike is visible twice.

Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy and Riley are talking at the crime scene, where he tells her about Maggie Walsh's death, one of the camera shots has a very visible black border around the entire edge of the screen as if the lens shade was visible in front of the lens and could be seen in the shot. (00:18:20 - 00:19:40)

The Body - S5-E16

Visible crew/equipment: After Buffy walks outside to hear the sirens, in the close up of Buffy's face on the upper right corner of the screen you can see a boom mike. (00:06:30)

Quotes

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.
