Buffy The Vampire Slayer

The Dark Age - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When Buffy and Giles are talking in the school in the final scene, the same extra (in a beige shirt and blue jeans) walks out of the room behind Buffy twice. (00:42:50)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Cordelia comes up to Buffy talking about how "even slaves get minimum wage", in pretty much every shot her arms switch from being at her sides to crossed in front of her, held behind her or on her hips.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Audio problem: When Jenny and Giles are talking and Jenny is talking about the festival, they walk behind a drinks machine and then her lips don't match up with what she says.

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: In "Becoming Part 2" At the end when Spike chokes Drusilla unconscious, he picks her up, one of her hands is resting on her stomach and the other is hanging to her side. It cuts to a shot of Spike looking at Angel and Buffy fighting then to Spike leaving with his back facing the camera. You can see that the hand resting on Drusilla's stomach moved to Spike's shoulder.

Bad Eggs - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy puts her egg down, the position of the chain and pen she sets it down by change depending on whether the shot's from Willow's side or Buffy's. (00:08:40)

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

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

Revealing mistake: Although the mirror in Buffy's room is mostly covered by photos, Angel's reflection can be seen for a split second as he walks past it to pick up the photo of Buffy ice-skating.

School Hard - S2-E3

Other mistake: As Spike is walking down the hall, you can see a reflection of his head on a locker to his left.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the season two episode, 'When She Was Bad', in the scene where Buffy smashes the masters skeleton with a sledge-hammer she smashes the rib cage to pieces. Suddenly the rib cage has again become completely intact and she smashes it to hell again. (00:40:35)

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Drusilla and the new reformed Angelus are in the shopping mall and they got blown over the side after Buffy fires the grenade launcher at the Judge, you can tell that it was Mike Mass and not David Boreanaz that got blown over the side.

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.

The Dark Age - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Giles is making calls in his apartment, he takes his glasses off and drops them on the desk, just above the notebook with his list of names. But in the close up of the notebook, the glasses are now on the top of the notebook.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: As Willow, Cordy, Miss. Calendar and Giles are wheeled over the bones of the Master, Giles goes past and his hand brushes against the bones - the skeleton bends, revealing that it is rubber. (00:36:10)

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Factual error: When Angelus is torturing Giles in this episode he is seen with Giles' glasses, and he cleans them by breathing on the glass and wiping with a cloth. Vampires don't have breath, as Angel tells Xander in 'Prophecy Girl' from season one - even if he can force some air out of his body, it wouldn't be warm, moist air, which is needed for condensation to clean glasses with.

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. (00:41:25)

Shay

The Dark Age - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Cordelia tells the Scoobies that Giles was talking to the police about a homicide, but this wasn't mentioned in the time that she was in the room. (00:18:15)

What's My Line? (2) - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When they ask about the demon that Xander and Cordelia encountered in Buffy's basement, Xander points to the bug that Cordelia threw from her hair onto the open book. He then slams it shut. A shot later, the book is gone.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy wakes up she is wearing metallic nail polish, yet when she went to sleep previously, she has no nail polish on. Later in a scene where Buffy is dreaming about her night with Angel she has the nail polish on again, even though that took place the night before when she did not have her nails painted. (00:01:15)

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Willow catches Xander and Cordelia kissing in the library, the hair next to Willow's right ear moves between shots as her and Xander are talking in the hallway.

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.
