Buffy The Vampire Slayer

What's My Line? (1) - S2-E9

Plot hole: If Spike and his gang only take a few hours to break through the door to Ford's club in 'Lie To Me' (which we are told is six feet of solid steel), why can't Angel break through a thin wire door that visibly shakes every time he hits it, given the same amount of time?

Lessons - S7-E1

Plot hole: The First (as Drusilla) touches and moves Spike's hair, However it is made very clear later in the season that The First is not corporeal, which means it is unable to physically touch anything.

Bring On The Night - S7-E10

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Plot hole: In 'Graduation Day pt 2' the Mayor has his vampires stand at the bottom of the steps leading out of the school to stop any escaping students. The thing is, all the parents managed to escape out the side exits. Since the Mayor was expecting all the students to try and run too, why didn't he have these exits covered?

Get It Done - S7-E15

Plot hole: When Dawn and Buffy discover Chloe hanging in the bathroom, Dawn gives a little gasp but nothing more. But, seconds later, some Potentials run from across the hall saying "What is it? We heard -" before they see Chloe. While it suits the next scene to have them there, there wouldn't have been any sounds loud enough for them to have heard from across the hall through a closed door.

Halloween - S2-E6

Plot hole: Giles tells Willow to leave him while he extracts information from Ethan on how to break the costume spell. By the time Giles smashes the statue Willow has already found the others, who had left the house where she thought they were and are hiding in a completely different area of the town. No matter how long it took Giles to beat the information out of Ethan, there is no way Willow could have gotten back to the house, realised they were gone and tracked them down before the spell was broken. As a ghost, it is possible she could have happened across them even though they were hiding, but seems unlikely.

School Hard - S2-E3

Plot hole: Willow and Cordy disappear during a vampire attack. We later see that they spent the entire night hiding out in a closet, but wouldn't Buffy have gone looking for them once the vampires were gone? She knew they had run off somewhere (she mentions it to Giles when she gets a stake from the library). Instead she just goes home, leaving them still missing as far as anyone knows.

Gone - S6-E11

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Plot hole: When Ampata is first released from her imprisonment, why didn't she break the seal then? She knew the only way to re-mummify her was to put the seal back together, so why not shatter it completely instead of leaving it in large fragments?

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Plot hole: When Giles calls Buffy's house, Joyce is in the kitchen, where in other episodes we see there is a telephone. Yet she doesn't answer it.

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: When Buffy talks to Xander at the end and he tells her to stay with Riley, she mentions that he is going at midnight. But earlier in the episode, Riley doesn't tell Buffy he is going at midnight, he says "Transport's leaving tonight" first, and at the end of the conversation he says "Unless you give me a reason to stay, I'm leaving tonight". Nowhere in this episode does he tell Buffy that he's leaving at midnight.

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.

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?

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.

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.

I Robot, You Jane - S1-E8

Plot hole: In "I Robot, You Jane", how exactly does Willow scan Moloch out of his book when the scan is only about two thirds the width of it?

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.

School Hard - S2-E3

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.

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.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Plot hole: In 'Becoming, part 2' Spike decides he doesn't want to see the world end and makes an alliance with Buffy. Later on, however, he helps Angel get the information he need from Giles to end the world. If he's trying to save the world, why help Angel destroy it even faster? He didn't need to buy Giles any time - he had already convinced Angelus to keep Giles alive for the time being. If he had truly reached breaking point later on Spike could have called in Drusilla then, but as it is he helped Angelus way too early and nearly cost Buffy her life. [Some people disagree at great length, others don't - I haven't seen the episode myself, and the explanation of the mistake and the corrections just make my brain melt. File this under "make up your own mind and just let it go"].

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.

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?

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.

Mistakes

Willow is turned into a ghost. Throughout the entire episode, she can't touch anything (can't turn the pages of a book, etc.), yet towards the end when she and Giles go to Ethan's shop, and she leaves, you can hear that she opened and closed the door, even though she can walk through walls and can't actually touch the door. The curtain moves when she leaves too.

Trivia

In addition to singing "Rest in Peace," James Marsters also played the song's guitar track.
