Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Buffy The Vampire Slayer mistake picture

Anne - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene at the end when Buffy is fighting the demons you see her throw one of the demons off the platform. If you watch him fall you can see him land safely on a conveniently placed mat.

Revelations - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: In 'Revelations' when Buffy and Faith are fighting, the kick Faith aims at Buffy's face right after she says 'We can work this out' very noticeably misses, but Buffy still reacts as though it landed.

Earshot - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Buffy is fighting the big scary lunch lady, look closely in the far away shots because you can see that the big lunch lady is now a skinny little stunt double.

Anne - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Buffy runs in front of the car you can see knee pads on her knees. You have to look quite closely because they are the same colour as her tights.

Revelations - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: When Gwendolyn Post fights Angel in the mansion, she breaks a long-handled shovel over her knee to create a stake. If you watch in slow motion, the handle of the shovel is pre-broken (she simply holds the two pieces together tightly), and the pieces separate just before they actually make contact with her knee.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Enemies - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: After Faith brings Angelus back, when she goes to punch him and he blocks, the stuntman switch is very obvious - he's noticeably taller, has different hair and doesn't even seem to be wearing any vampire make-up.

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: In Graduation Day Part One, when Faith shoots Angel with the longbow, you can see the false point spring out as if it were on a hinge from inside his jacket.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: Early on, Spike falls down drunk. He wakes up because his hand is on fire from the sunlight. When he runs away, a little bit of fire stays on the stones where his hand was when it started.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: Near the end when the good Willow says goodbye to the evil Willow and hugs her, there is a shot of the back of the good Willow's head and the evil Willow's face. You can tell that the good Willow is a body double wearing a wig - there's something circular near her scalp, possibly an elastic band.

Earshot - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: When Buffy beats up the school cook for trying to kill all the students with rat poison, the cook's stunt double is a lot thinner than the actual cook.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: Right at the beginning of the episode, Buffy is sat outside with Willow and Willow is levitating a pencil. The pencil is obviously CGI as it stands out from the rest of the picture and doesn't cast a shadow. It also disappears from view whenever there is a side-angle shot of Willow.

Bad Girls - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode when the Mayor releases the vampire from his cage and lets him cut his head in half, you can tell that the Mayor's head is a still image when it fixes itself. The expression on his face doesn't change at all and looks completely unrealistic.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: Both the good and evil Willows' faces are barely seen onscreen at the same time due to them being played by the same actress, but when they occasionally are the good Willow stands out from the picture more than the evil Willow. She must have been filmed separately from the good Willow and edited in later.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: When evil Willow licks good Willow's neck the neck that you see is a lot longer than either of theirs. Since both Willows' faces cannot be filmed at the same time a body double must have been used for this shot.

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.
