Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Buffy The Vampire Slayer mistake picture

The Initiative - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: Several times during Spike's escape from the Initiative, his reflection can be seen in the glass. Vampires aren't supposed to have reflections. (00:13:00)

Phoebe

Hush - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: In the fight scene at the clock tower, the first time Riley is knocked to the ground he kicks one of the strait-jacket demons in the face - his foot misses, but the demon still reacts as if hit.

Shay

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: After Buffy leaves the cave where Adam kills Forrest, she trips and falls down a horizontal slope. She then rolls over some rocks and one of the rocks wobbles.

THGhost

This Year's Girl (1) - S4-E15

Revealing mistake: When Faith is being chased by Buffy she jumps over a brick wall but as she does the wall wobbles.

A New Man - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Giles and Ethan Rayne are drinking in the bar, the shots cut between Giles and Ethan frequently. When on Giles, you can see Ethan's hands/arms and his glass in the foreground of the shot, but almost every time the shot switches back to Ethan he's in a different position with no time to have moved. (00:14:40)

pinkwafer

Pangs - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: One of the arrows that Spike gets hit with passes through just below his left shoulder, but there are times when you can tell that it is a fake arrow because the part of the arrow sticking out at the front moves and the part at the back does not. Look at the arrow just after Buffy turns Hus into a bear.

THGhost

The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is fighting Spike, she throws him against a table and then runs over it; you can see this is her body double. It is extremely obvious.

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: Towards the end when Oz says to Veruca, "You don't wanna find out what I am", and partially turns into a Werewolf. You can tell that both of the actors were filmed separately for the CGI's sake as Oz stands out from the picture more than Veruca does. The same effect is obvious during "Doppelgangland" in season 3 where there are 2 Willows onscreen at once.

THGhost

Superstar - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Tara is being chased by the monster and she falls, she says a spell and white smoke comes out of her hands but it is coming out of the sleeves of her shirt, the way she holds her hands up suggests this as well.

Restless - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: In Xander's dream, when he climbs into the back of the ice cream van, for a split second before the window goes out of view the backdrop cuts out and the blue screen is visible. Only visible in widescreen version.

virtual-toast

Superstar - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Jonathan assists Buffy at the beginning of the episode, he enters through the glass ceiling of the mausoleum, which shatters into squares. Although the audio is the sound of glass shattering, the pieces of "glass" flutter down, revealing that the squares are paper - simply for the safety of the actor during the stunt. (00:05:00)

tu11

Hush - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: When the Gentlemen are chasing Tara in Stevenson Hall, in the first hallway two Gentlemen are floating down the corridor and you can tell they're on wires because the one on the screen's left "jumps" a little as if his wires got snagged.

stellablue

A New Man - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Giles is dusting his book shelf he takes a book from the shelf and reads from it, you can see that the pages have nothing written on them. (00:07:30)

bic

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: In the scene when Oz stops the female wolf from attacking Willow, and they both change and Oz tears her neck out, if you look closely, you can see the actor's real skin at the neck.

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

The accent that Giles uses as his teenage self is Anthony Head's natural accent.
