Revelations - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the female watcher is being destroyed after Buffy cuts off her arm. Her sleeve is empty, which is not possible, as Buffy could not have removed the arm but not the sleeve. Also the arm on the floor is removed at the elbow, but the watcher has lost the entire arm in a previous shot.

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is walking forwards through Angel's dust in 'The Wish' there's a vampire running towards her, only a few steps behind. Then there's a shot of her walking forwards taken from another angle, then when we can see behind her again the same vampire hasn't moved forwards at all, he's still running from 3 steps behind her.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode Lover's Walk, when Spike is threatening Willow at the factory, in the long shots Willow's hair is up over her face, and in the close-ups it isn't. The pointed bit of the bottle is at the top or bottom in different shots too.

xx:xx:xx

Amends - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: During season 7 we are told several times that the First cannot take corporeal form, ie. it cannot touch things. However, in its first appearance in the season 3 episode 'Amends', when it manifests as Jenny Calender and runs its fingers through Angel's hair you can see his hair moving underneath her fingers. It wouldn't be able to do this if it weren't corporeal.

Gingerbread - S3-E11

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In Graduation Day Part 1, when Faith and Buffy are fighting, Faith throws Buffy into the wall near the TV, but the TV is intact. A few shots later, there is debris on the floor, glass and such, from the TV, and when it's shown again, the TV is unbroken. This happens a few times. In Graduation Day Part 2, when Faith and Buffy are talking in the apartment, the TV is broken again.

xx:xx:xx

Choices - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: After Buffy slams the Gavrok spider thing on the ground with her back, she gets pulled up by Angel. We see this shot from the back, and we see that the Gavrok is no longer on the floor or on her jacket. In the very next shot, we see Angel kick it across the floor. Where did it come from?

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the basement scene, when Jack and Xander face off over the ticking bomb, the number of beeps is hugely disproportionate to the seconds ticking down.

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the school near the end, one of the dead guys looks through the round window into the library and says 'wow'. In the long shot from within the library, his face isn't in the window. Back to the shot of the window, he's still there.

Add time

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Whenever we see the two Willows together in this episode we see that Vampire Willow is understandably very pale in comparison to the living Willow. However, in the library with Cordelia, when Vampire Willow says 'How about dinner?' her face is no longer pale.

Add time

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Anne' when the latest people to be brought into hell are lined up with a demon talking to them, there are 3 or 4 people standing between Buffy and Lily. When the demon asks them all in turn 'Who are you?' we see him asking Lily and after that the shot rests on Buffy, but in the background we only hear him ask one more person before he gets to Buffy.

xx:xx:xx

Shay

Homecoming - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: In numerous episodes, including 'Homecoming', we see vampires being killed when they weren't stabbed through the heart (the Texan girl vampire in this episode is stabbed practically in the stomach). But the show also makes an issue of the fact you have to stab a vampire directly in the heart to kill it (think the flashback in 'the Becoming, Part 2' where Buffy misses the vampire's heart, or 'Pangs' where Spike gets staked several times).

Add time

Consequences - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley, he mentions that the murder took place "last night". In "Bad Girls", we see Buffy visiting Faith the day after the murder, and that night is presumably when she has the dream about drowning, so by the time the detective is asking this question it is actually two nights after the murder, not one.

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Lily's boyfriend is taken into an alternate dimension, where time moves quicker than ours, and is kept there until he is an old man. But when Buffy finds him, she realizes who he is because of his tattoo - which has not faded or aged in any way.

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Wesley and Cordelia kiss, after a few seconds they freeze in place. Cordelia has her left arm around his waist, we see a shot of her face for about a second with her arm definitely angled downwards, then we cut to Wes' face and her hand's now on his neck.

Jon Sandys

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Xander and Willow are stuck in the factory Xander wakes up you'll notice that the blood on his side burn closest to his ear constantly changes lengths from shot to shot. It goes from under the chin to slightly below where the blood on the other side of his side burn is.

xx:xx:xx

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Buffy has just finished fighting the demons, she begins climbing up chains and if you look at her shoes, they continue to change until she reaches the ground above the chains and runs off.

xx:xx:xx

Consequences - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: In 'Consequences' Buffy says to Faith 'Less that 24 hours ago you killed a man'. In 'Bad Girls', Faith kills Finch in the alley on the first night. One night later Buffy and Angel are attacking Belthazor, the night after that is the night when Buffy dreams about drowning, so the night when Buffy says this is actually about 72 hours after the murder.

Shay

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: When Xander's being threatened, the knife moves from under his chin to the side of his neck between shots.

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: In 'The Wish' when Xander has killed Cordelia and throws her corpse down she falls at a definite angle, which makes it look like she should have landed on her side. When Giles breaks out of the cage, however, she's lying flat on her back.

xx:xx:xx

Shay

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Graduation Day, Part 1' when Giles stabs the Mayor, as he takes the foil out of his chest you can see a wound on his shirt. When the shot changes it has disappeared. I know the Mayor is invincible and his wound heal in seconds, but it still takes a second or two for his wounds to close up, they don't just disappear.

xx:xx:xx

Shay

Band Candy - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The tattoo on Giles' arm is reversed compared to the way it was facing in the "Dark Age" in season 2.

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.
