Buffy The Vampire Slayer

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander opens his locker and the gross hand grabs him, if you use slow-mo when the shot is inside the locker looking out, you can see the white t-shirt of the man whose arm it is. (00:10:20)

Phases - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Giles is driving Buffy to the Bronze if you look closely you can see people's heads pushing the car because it had broken down. (00:17:10)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Willow are studying at the Bronze, the position of Buffy's pencil changes between shots after they leave their table to go dance. Nobody else goes to their table between these shots.

Surprise (1) - S2-E13

Character mistake: In this episode, Buffy says that Drusilla could be alive because they 'never saw her body'. Drusilla is a vampire; if she was dead, there wouldn't be a body to see - as the slayer, Buffy knows this.

School Hard - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Spike is talking to the Anointed One for the first time, one of the henchmen tries to rush him from behind and Spike backhands him without even looking, but Spike's hand movements, the reaction of the henchman and the sound of the punch connecting on the audio track are all out of sync.

The Dark Age - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Buffy complains to Willow and Xander that she will have to blow her allowance on getting the tattoo removed before her Mom sees it. Moments later when Buffy is talking to Giles, the tattoo is gone. (00:40:45 - 00:42:30)

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? (00:08:40)

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Absalom is speaking of the Anointed one, the line can be seen where the vampire makeup meets up with his real face. This may be seen in various scenes he is in.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When the Judge is blown up, Drusilla and Angel leap from the balcony. In mid-air, they somersault and their backs are facing the ground as they fall, but a second later they land on their stomachs.

Lie To Me - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Buffy knew that Spike was the vampire Ford asked to come, but Ford never told her that, nor did anyone else.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: Drusilla's reflection can be seen in the metal part of what appears to be the base of a shopping mall map just as she's getting up after the Judge has been blown up.

Surprise (1) - S2-E13

Other mistake: When Buffy and Angel escape from Spike, Dru and the Judge they jump down into the sewer, then run all of five metres before going up the ladder to escape. When they come out of the sewer they are in a very open area with the factory nowhere in sight. They have not travelled far enough for this to be the case. (00:39:15)

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Buffy is talking to Giles about how she can't face her friends, her hair is over her ears for the entire conversation, but when she is about to walk away, her hair is suddenly tucked behind her ear and she couldn't have tucked it behind as that side of her head is still in view when the camera's on Giles.

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: According to Giles in 'Revelations' there are 12 cemeteries in Sunnydale, but in 'Becoming Part 1', amongst others, Buffy agrees to meet someone (Angelus in this case) in 'the cemetery'. If there are 12 in the city, how would they know which one she means? (00:35:40)

Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Other mistake: When Willow is attempting the spell in the hospital, the subtitles state that Xander is speaking a line of the incantation. It is actually Oz speaking - Xander is off rescuing Giles, as we see in the very next shot.

Halloween - S2-E6

Character mistake: While researching Angel's past, Willow comments that he was still human in 1775. But he was already a vampire by then, having been sired in 1753.

Halloween - S2-E6

Audio problem: Just before Willow got turned into a ghost, she started to talk, but it wasn't her voice that was talking, it sounded like Cordelia.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is told that Angel has become Angelus, she mentions "I should have known. When I saw him at the house he was different", but her earlier conversation with him took place not at the house but at his apartment. This isn't just a strange turn of phrase - the scene was originally shot at the Summers house, but was changed to Angel's apartment for more emotional resonance.

Shay

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.

Lie To Me - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is fighting the vampire in the alley, it's fairly obvious that it's her stunt double fighting because Sarah's hair is slightly shorter, and isn't as full at the ends.

Issabee

School Hard - S2-E3

Vampire: And when I kill her, it will be the greatest event since the crucifixion. And I should know, I was there.
Spike: You were there?! If every vampire who said he was actually at the crucifixion really was there, it would've been like Woodstock!

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.
