Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Corrected entry: When Tara got shot, the hole in the window and Tara shows that the bullet has to have entered in a straight line, but Tara and Willow were on the second level and Warren was on the bottom level, and he shot upwards, not straight, so the bullet couldn't have entered in a straight line.

Correction: When a bullet travels though glass the trajectory will be changed. How much depends on many things like type of glass and the round fired. Since the round that hit Tara went though glass would be really difficult to say where it would hit after hitting the window.

Bargaining (2) - S6-E2

Corrected entry: After Buffy rises from her grave, her face is surprisingly clean for someone who just climbed through six feet of dirt.

Correction: Not so much a mistake as consistency - new vampires are oddly pristine as well.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Corrected entry: When Sweet's henchman shows up at the Magic Box to tell Buffy that Dawn is being held hostage you can see the actor's real mouth moving inside the mouth of his costume.

Shay

Correction: That's because the henchman is wearing a mask and is moving his mouth underneath the mask.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Corrected entry: During Buffy's training montage, she is seen punching a bag with her wrists bent. First, that's going to be a weak punch, super strength or no, because she can't transfer the force from her arm and body; it just bends at the joint. Second, that's a great way to injure your wrist, because all that escaping force snaps the bend farther. You could strain or even break the joint. After six years, Buffy should know better.

00:31:50

Phoenix

Correction: That may well be true, but Buffy has superhuman strength. So, it wouldn't hurt her hands and would still pack a big enough punch.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Corrected entry: When Tara starts with her song ("I'm Under Your Spell"), her hair is normal. When they are in their bedroom her hair has a zig zag in it.

00:09:05 - 00:11:00

daffie

Correction: Reality is being changed by Sweet's magic. (Monsters are joining in as backup singers, lighting and wind effects appear; and in the later flashback to this episode, costume changes occur.) It's entirely possible that this could include makeup and hair changes.

Dead Things - S6-E13

Corrected entry: Toward the end of Tara and Willow's conversation outside the Magic Box, Tara's hand disappears from her shoulder strap for one shot. It's there before and after.

00:23:05

Phoenix

Correction: Tara's hand stays on the shoulder strap from the time she puts it there. She does move it lower down, meaning it is not so clearly seen in some shots from behind, but is still visible.

Dead Things - S6-E13

Corrected entry: Buffy is going to confess to the police and Spike is trying to stop her, so Buffy is punching him repeatedly in the face. We cut to Spike who is bleeding from his nose, which is all well and good. But then we cut to Buffy and she says, "I will never be your girl," and then it cuts back to Spike, he now has a huge cut over his left cheek that wasn't there before.

00:36:00

Correction: There are several punches thrown between the two clear shots of Spike's face, any one of which could have caused this injury.

Dead Things - S6-E13

Corrected entry: At the Magic Box, Dawn's arms shift between the wide shot at the table and her line, "Does this mean you're not going away?"

00:38:10

Phoenix

Correction: We can see Dawn fidgeting about in the background throughout the scene. In this cut her arms have not moved drastically, or more than they could have done in the time between those two shots.

Smashed - S6-E9

Corrected entry: Spike bursts into the Trio's lair by breaking through a side door that leads to the outside. But they didn't invite him in, so he shouldn't have been able to enter like that.

Correction: Spike was invited into Warren's house by his mother off-screen at the end of "I Was Made To Love You." The Trio doesn't have access to the spell to undo the invitation, so it's still accessible to him.

Normal Again - S6-E17

Corrected entry: In 'Normal Again', when the demon in the basement throws Dawn into the corner watch in freeze frame. You can see as she looks up that it's not Michelle Trachtenberg but a much older stunt double with darker skin and different make up.

Shay

Correction: If you have to use freeze frame it isn't a mistake.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Corrected entry: when Tara and Willow are in the park, Tara has a straight hair parting. If you look at her in the next shot, her hair has changed to a zigzag parting. In the next shot she has magically switched back to a straight hair parting.

Correction: Tara's hair is parted in a zig-zag throughout the scene in the park. A large section at the front of her parting is relatively straight before the zig-zag begins, which is why it may not appear obvious from all angles.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Once More, With Feeling', during Giles' song, 'Standing', Buffy's hair is loose as we see her training montage. When she walks up to him at the end and starts to speak, she's taking it out of a bun. She's definitely not just playing with her hair - if you watch carefully you can see that there's a clip or pin of some sort in her hand that had been holding her hair up.

00:32:00

Shay

Correction: There was no clip in her hair nor was she holding one. Buffy was just holding her hair back with her hands while stretching her neck.

Smashed - S6-E9

Corrected entry: When Buffy sees the news report about the frozen security guard, the reporter says that he is in critical but stable condition. In the next scene, Buffy sees the frozen guard being removed from the museum. How did they determine his condition without taking him to the hospital?

00:12:05

Correction: The paramedics probably determined this when they got there, then informed the reporters.

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Corrected entry: Near the end of the episode they are fighting the vampires in the front lawn of a house. Buffy breaks the pole off a mailbox and uses it to stake a vampire. In the shot where she broke it off the ends are uneven, but in the very next shot one end has a point like a stake.

00:31:10

Correction: One end of the stake is longer then the others. When Buffy pulls the pole out of the vampire, we see only one side of it, which has the longer end. This makes it look like it has a point. If you look at it when she throws it to the ground, you can see the ends are uneven.

Hell's Bells - S6-E16

Corrected entry: Xander is visited by what he believes is himself from the future. We later find out it is a demon that used to be a man, but Anya had changed him back in her demon days. But when Giles destroyed Anya's pendant in 'The Wish,' it supposedly reverted all of her previous spells, which should have made him human again.

Correction: The demon in question was trapped in another dimension when the reversal occured, and as such might not have been affected by the spell. We've seen several times throughout the series that different dimensions work in very different ways (for example, the time-flow in "Anne"), so it's not definite that magic would cross over between them.

Shay

After Life - S6-E3

Corrected entry: Spike mentions that he knows what it's like to claw your way out of a coffin, but this is later contradicted in "Lies My Parents Told Me", when we see that Spike was never buried (or else his mother would have known he had died).

Shay

Correction: Spike is lying. He is trying to score a few easy points with Buffy and change the way she feels about him, so he makes up a story that they have some horrible experience in common. Easy sympathy points. We also don't know every situation he's ever been in - he might have clawed out of a coffin on another occasion.

Twotall

Dead Things - S6-E13

Corrected entry: The Katrina that Buffy sees in the forest is revealed to be Jonathon in a glamour, but where did he find an exact duplicate of Katrina's dress at short notice?

00:28:40

Shay

Correction: Jonathan is a mage of some skill. He conjured a duplicate set or transformed existing clothes to match Katrina's.

Phoenix

As You Were - S6-E15

Corrected entry: Sam, Riley's wife, says that it took him a year to get over Buffy. At this point in the season, it has barely even been a year since Riley left.

Correction: Riley leaves in episode 5.10 ("Into the Woods") and returns in 6.15. As each season represents a year, then this gap ought to be around 15 months. Riley says that they've been married for nearly four months, which ties in reasonably closely with him taking a year to get over Buffy.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Corrected entry: In once more with feeling, Buffy is wearing a white shirt before she goes off to confront Sweet. Once she gets there and takes off her coat, she is wearing a red shirt.

Correction: Sweet changed her shirt so that taking off her jacket would be more dramatic. Just like he changed Dawn's pants to a skirt.

Gone - S6-E11

Corrected entry: When Willow is spraying the invisible traffic cone in 'Gone', she only sprays a little bit before leaving to track down the van. When Xander shows Anya the cone later on it's completely coloured.

Shay

Correction: Willow gives Xander the paint can and tells him to take the traffic cone back to the Magic Box. Xander paints the rest so he and Anya can study it.

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.
