The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: In 'The Wish', when Cordelia is cutting up the photo of Xander at the start she chops his head off high up on the neck. When she sets fire to the remains it shows a piece of the photo burning, and the cut is around shoulder level. (00:02:45)

Anne - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Buffy saves the man from being hit by a car, there is a very quick shot of the man standing in front of the car. In this shot, Buffy can seen on the left hand side of the screen running into the street to save him. But the shot then immediately cuts to Buffy who is suddenly still standing on the other side of the street with Lily and runs into the street to save him again.

Amends - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When Willow and Oz realise that it's snowing, the camera pans outwards away from the window. The camera is reflected in it.

THGhost

Bad Girls - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Faith are fighting the vampires after going down the manhole, one of the vampires tries to drown Buffy. After she pretends to be dead and attacks him with a sword, her face and hair are almost bone dry.

THGhost

Helpless - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After Xander and Oz's "Kryptonite" conversation, Buffy tosses a book onto the table and stands up to leave. The book lands partially on top of another book and slides almost off it. In the next shot the book is lying on top of the other book perfectly.

THGhost

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Willow's hair changes position between shots when the vampire brushes her hair back and kisses her.

Cybermoose

Helpless - S3-E12

Visible crew/equipment: Near the start, just after Buffy kicks the vampire onto the roundabout, check the top left corner of the screen as she says her line - boom in shot. (00:02:35)

Gingerbread - S3-E11

Factual error: When Giles and Cordelia are driving to save the girls from getting burned at the stake and are making the potion to make the demon show his true face Giles tells Cordelia to shred the Wolfsbane. This is a huge mistake as any Witch will know (my sister pointed this out to me) that Wolfsbane is highly poisonous and should never be touched with bare hands and Cordelia didn't have gloves or anything.

Faith, Hope And Trick - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: During Faith's fight outside the Bronze in 'Faith, Hope and Trick' when she stakes the vampire, if you watch carefully, you can see the rubber stake bending. (00:15:20)

Shay

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Buffy fights the guards and says, "Anyone who isn't having any fun here follow me," the top under her jacket is purple. In the next shot, when she turns to walk out, it is green, then back to purple when we see her again.

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the basement scene, with Jack and Xander, the bomb counts down from 13 to 10 seconds. Then after Xander says his line, the bomb again shows 13 seconds.

Enemies - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: Watch Xander's right leg as Angelus punches him onto the sidewalk - it bends the wrong way at the knee and flies up to his waist, showing that it's a dummy.

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. (00:38:05)

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?

Amends - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: In the shot with Buffy and Angel on the hill when it first starts snowing, the snow appears much more dense in the middle of the shot, over the characters, than it does on either side, showing where they centred the machine they used.

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.

Shay

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Other mistake: In the final scene, where Spike drives down the road while singing 'My Way' he turns the steering wheel significantly, but in the external shots the car is travelling down a straight road, with no bends. He is turning it sharply to the right as the camera cuts to outside, but the car continues straight ahead.

Earshot - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is trying to read Angel's mind, his chain goes from being inside to outside his vest between shots.

Shay

Beauty And The Beasts - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: In the teaser of "Beauty And The Beasts", when Jeff is running through the woods, you can see in the top left corner of several shots a lamp being used to light the scene.

Shay

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.
