Corrected entry: In 3-6 "Band Candy", Buffy finds a monster and the babies that had been kidnapped in the sewers, simply, it would seem, by going underground, as if Sunnydale's sewer network was small enough for such a feat. However in this episode, when Buffy and Xander are looking for the 3 priests in the episode “Amends”, they get information from Willy the snitch that they may live underground. Xander says "We know 'underground', that's a start," to which Buffy disdainfully replies: "Sure! In a town with 14 million square miles of sewer". Even assuming she's speaking figuratively, there's no reason it's easy to find someone the first time but not the second.AnthonyA
Corrected entry: When Giles hacks the lock off the cage he's in in the library, he uses an axe - the axe which belonged to the demon going after the glove in "Revelations", who Buffy killed and stole the axe from. The axe cannot be there, however, as Buffy is not in Sunnydale in this reality and therefore could not have faced this demon and taken the axe to the library.
Corrected entry: If the mayor knows about both slayers (if he didn't know before hand, his assassin Trick would have told him) then surely he would have realised they were a threat and tried to eliminate them earlier. I appreciate it wouldn't have benefited the season at all but for a highly efficient mayor who was determined, his plan would go without a hitch. It seems pretty careless.
Corrected entry: Buffy manages to get right into Faith's apartment and has to turn the stereo off before Faith notices her there. In that amount of time and if Faith is being that oblivious, Buffy could have easily killed her by throwing the knife or using a crossbow, etc.
Corrected entry: Buffy is talking to her mother about college while making a bag of microwave popcorn. When the microwave goes off, she takes the fully-popped bag out and opens it. When it opens, there is no puff of smoke from the heated oil in the bag, indicating that it was pre-popped for the scene.
Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, we find out that Gwendolyn Post was kicked out of the Watchers' Council for misuse of dark power and that the Council had informed everyone of the fact via memo. If that's the case, then why would she use her real name when she arrived in Sunnydale? Wouldn't she be worried that Giles would recognize her?
Corrected entry: In this episode when everyone is in the Library and they find out that Buffy can hear thoughts, Buffy turns to look at Wesley because he is thinking about Cordelia. As she leans forward she rests her chin on the heel of her hand, the shot cuts to Wesley, then back to Buffy and she has her chin resting on the top of her hand (the knuckles), Wesley then goes into the office and it cuts to a shot of Buffy and Willow, Buffy is once again resting her chin on the heel of her hands.
Corrected entry: In 'Graduation Day, pt 2' Percy and guys who are presumably other students are fighting at Angel's side, but shouldn't they have been at the ceremony with the others? Even if they just didn't show up there would have been noticeable gaps in the seating, but in all the previous shots every chair is filled.
Corrected entry: The Mayor, near phobic about germs, doesn't even react when Faith picks up a cookie in his office, takes a bite out of it and puts it back in the pile. Someone as obsessive as him would surely hate the thought of half-eaten cookies being mixed with the fresh ones. We know he plans to keep the cookies since he covers them over with clingfilm later in the scene.Shay
Corrected entry: If even Faith can instantly realise that the gang would be willing to trade the Box of Gavrok for Willow's life, we can assume Willow knows it too. Why, then, when she escapes from the locked room in Town Hall, does she hang around to read up on the Books of Ascension? If she had escaped they could have destroyed the box, and the Mayor's plan would have been stopped, whether he had the books or not.Shay
Corrected entry: When Faith asks Buffy what her toughest kill was, she tells her "The Three", from the season one episode "Angel", but in that episode Buffy barely encountered them. She saw them once in an alley and was barely harmed in the encounter - in the end, it was Darla who killed them. One would assume her first thoughts would be of someone like the Master (who killed her) or The Judge (who was indestructible).Shay
Corrected entry: In 'Revelations', after Mrs. Post attacks Giles, when Buffy finds him he manages to tell her that living flame must be used to destroy the Glove of Mynhgon before the paramedics take him away. Since Angel already knew this, wouldn't it have been much more useful if he had warned her that Mrs. Post was an imposter?Shay
Corrected entry: In 'The Wish', considering the necklace is the source of all Anya's powers she's fairly careless with it. She puts it around Cordy's neck and lets her take it into the Bizzaro World, where it could easily have been smashed during either of the vampire attacks. In fact, if it hadn't been for Giles the necklace would have been incinerated.Shay
Corrected entry: In 'Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered' we see the interior of Xander's room, and a guitar is resting against the wall in the background. Next season, in 'The Zeppo', he asks Oz if it's hard to play the guitar. If he already has a guitar you'd assume he knew how to play it, or had at least tried to learn in the past year.Shay
Corrected entry: At first Anya supposedly has no knowledge of what happened during the events of 'The Wish', since she is as mystified as Cordelia to find her necklace gone. During 'Doppelgangland', however, she seems to know exactly what happened; she discusses it with D'Hoffryn and recognises Vampire Willow as soon as she sees her.Shay
Corrected entry: In the episode "Beauty and the Beasts" where Buffy has to see the school psychiatrist she finds him dead in his office, when she walks into his office she says she's on time for her two o'clock appointment but the clock over the door of the office reads twenty past four.
Corrected entry: Giles says in 'The Wish' that destroying Anyanka's power source will reverse all her wishes. Surely Cordelia's can't have been the only wish that caused a temporal fold or similar history changing event? And if not, then shouldn't the world now be radically different in some way?Shay
Corrected entry: The episode, 'The Wish', is where Buffy had never come to Sunnydale and the vampires had taken over Giles knew there was a vampire problem before Cordelia shows up and tells him to call Buffy in. Giles knew about Buffy before Cordelia tells him so why didn't Giles call Buffy about the problem before it got so out of hand if he already knew of her and the problem.
Corrected entry: During 'The Wish', when history has changed and the Master has risen, where are Collin, Darla and the Anointed One, the Three or any of the other favoured acolytes from season 1? Buffy never killed Collin or the Three, Angel wouldn't have killed Darla if it hadn't been for Buffy and the Master would surely have been able to protect the Anointed One from Spike. Even allowing for Angel and the White Hats to have taken out one or two of them, surely at least one of the group should have been there? This is technically the real world as altered by Anyanka's temporal fold, not any kind of alternate dimension. This is what the world would have been like if Buffy hadn't come to Sunnydale, so anybody who would be alive if it weren't for Buffy should still be alive.Shay
