Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: When Anya leads Andrew away to their station in the school, she goes from having her right arm over his shoulders to having her left arm over her shoulders between shots. She is off camera for a second, but not long enough to move to the opposite side of him and change hands.

Sleeper - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: Willow tells Buffy that the Big Bad's lies were very convincing, she then debates whether it was trying to confuse them, mess them up or just trying to be cruel. As she says this, Buffy's fringe changes position between shots.

Help - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, when Buffy stops the arrow, when she first grabs it her hand drops down to Cassie's mouth level, and her arm's bent at the elbow. When we cut to another angle it's now held at arm's length and at about eye level.

End Of Days - S7-E21

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when the Potentials are fighting the ubervamps, when they see the second one they move away from it. You can see in the bottom right hand corner of the screen that the ubervamp already has a Potential. In the next shot you see it jump down and grab a Potential.

Storyteller - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Xander and Anya have had their "one more time" and are lying in the cellar bed talking, the shot is on Xander and he is speaking. When he finishes speaking Anya starts, but the camera stays focussed on him, however, you can see part of Anya's face in the shot and her mouth is not moving despite the fact she is talking.

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: When Willow is out with Kennedy, Willow tells her that she doesn't get why she likes her. As she says "I still don't get it", she pulls her hair back over her left ear. Then when she says "Why you like me" in the following shot, her hair is hanging back down over her left ear again.

Sleeper - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When Anya pretends to want to have sex with Spike again, she holds a stake up in her right hand. In the shots facing Anya she holds it at a horizontal angle. But in the shots behind her, she holds it at a diagonal angle.

Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is giving her speech about being chosen, there is a shot of Andrew sitting on the couch next to Xander and Anya, but in several of the shots of the Potentials he can be seen standing on the other side of the room in front of the curtains. It's definitely him - his face isn't visible, but the clothes are the exact same.

Get It Done - S7-E15

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Get It Done' when Dawn and Buffy find Chloe's corpse the door across the hall from them is open. When it cuts back to them after the ad break it is shut, but there has been no time lapse.

Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: In the very last episode, Chosen, in the shot right before Spike's amulet sends out the blast through the roof, you can see an ubervamp just about to pin him against the wall and in the next shot he is standing in the middle of the area backing up toward the stairs and then he sends out the blast. There would never be enough time between the shots for Spike to break free and then go and stand in the middle of the floor.

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Continuity mistake: When Buffy ties Spike to a chair before the opening credits, she ties a rope around his left arm three times. But two extremely fast shots later, the rope is tied around his left arm four times.

Selfless - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: In the flashback to St. Petersburg, 1905, just after the burning man runs out of the room, Halfrek mentions the Revolution. Between shots, Anya's champagne glass switches from her left hand to on the table and back.

Showtime - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the episode, during Buffy's fight with the Turok-Han, at the construction location, her shoes are very obviously some sort of practical flat shoe, but during her speech afterwards, she is wearing fashion boots with heels.

Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: As Buffy runs through the collapsing school her hand moves up and down the length of the scythe, between shots, with no time for her to move it.

Storyteller - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: There is a shot where a girl is turning invisible, and when the camera switches to Buffy slapping her, she is fully visible, until it turns back and she is slowly becoming visible again.

Season 7 generally

Continuity mistake: In many historical flashbacks, most notably Spike's and Anya's, hair and wigs differ greatly from previous flashbacks or episodes. The director even discusses it during the commentary on Lies My Parents Told Me, saying that he doesn't understand why the wigs aren't consistent.

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: After Buffy finds Morgan's brain, Willow pulls up Morgan's school file on one of the library computers without even touching the keyboard. One moment the monitor is on the desktop, the next it's showing Morgan's file.

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.
