Conversations With Dead People - S7-E7

Corrected entry: When Cassie comes back to talk to Willow, the purple in her hair is higher up then it was when she was alive.

Correction: Since it isn't really Cassie, this isn't an issue.

Get It Done - S7-E15

Corrected entry: In 'Get It Done' the First repeats Buffy's words to the Potentials to discourage them, but the words it speaks are different to Buffy's - they change from 'there's nothing I can do to stop that' to 'and nothing I can do will stop that'. Granted, the meaning is the same, but shouldn't the omnipresent evil know what it's repeating?

Shay

Correction: The First is reminding the potentials - the words don't need to be exactly the same, and the First knows that. In fact the slight change of wording is going to look less suspicious anyway.

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Corrected entry: When Robin Wood goes to the basement and sees Jonathan lying on the seal, the seal is clean except for some dirt. Only a day has passed since Jonathan bled out all over it and his blood or residue of it is nowhere to be seen.

Correction: In the next episode, when The First has Spike hanging over the seal, you see the blood dripping from Spike be absorbed by the seal seconds after it hits the surface.

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: When we see a flashback of Spike with Drusilla, Drusilla doesn't seem to be insane, but Angel turned her insane by torturing her before making her a vampire, and she's a vampire in the flashback.

Correction: It's shown after the "What's My Line" two parter that when she's at full strength, Drusilla's ramblings are less crazed and more related to her current situations. She's always been insane, but she can (at times) make perfect sense. The reason she seemed like a deranged mental patient when she was first introduced is because she'd nearly been killed and was still fragile and displaced.

Help - S7-E4

Corrected entry: Principal Wood told Buffy that it was Friday, the next day Cassie died, but she died on a Friday.

Correction: This is incorrect. Cass died on the Friday night. She was kidnapped after school on Friday, and that same night is when they tried to sacrifice her and then her heart finally gave out.

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Corrected entry: It's been nearly 3 years since anyone was last in the Initiative, given that it was blocked off at the end of season 4. Shouldn't the corpses be a lot more decomposed?

Shay

Correction: The complex is airtight. This would significantly slow the process of decomposition.

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Corrected entry: Buffy tells Spike that he attacked Andrew when the First was controlling him. Spike asks who that is, and when Buffy tells him it's Tucker's brother, Spike recognises the name. There's no way Spike could know Tucker, who the Scoobies only met briefly and during a time when Spike wasn't around. If he was going to know either brother, it would be Andrew, who he interacted with several times in the previous year.

Shay

Correction: In the years that have gone by since the Scoobies' encounter with Tucker, the incident could have been brought up in numerous conversations whilst Spike was present; therefore it's not impossible for him to recognise the name. As for him not recognising Andrew, this merely sums up how insignificant Andrew is to those who meet him.

Get It Done - S7-E15

Corrected entry: At the end of the fight with the exchange demon in 'Get It Done' there is a shot of Robin helping Anya up off the ground, but Anya wasn't knocked over during the fight.

Shay

Correction: Anya was stil standing.

Conversations With Dead People - S7-E7

Corrected entry: When Dawn goes to close the front door and she turns around and sees that the mute is turned off, she runs back to the T.V and turns around in a panic. Behind her you can see the mute is still on (as it says "mute" in lime green writing at the top of the screen) but when it shows the T.V again, the mute is off.

Correction: My TV has developed the interesting habit of turning itself off & changing channels because of a problem with the electrics. Also, the house is infected with paranormal activity that's probably affecting the TV as well.

Selfless - S7-E5

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Selfless' Anya has a flashback to a song she sang at the time of the episode 'Once More, With Feeling'. During this flashback her hair is much longer and a much harsher blonde than it actually was during that episode.

Correction: It's a flashback. There are many other examples in film and television where a character's flashback does not accuratetly reflect the actual events that took place. It is a vision of that character's memory, and is therefore subject to various inaccuracies.

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Corrected entry: We're told that Molly and Rona are fighting over who gets to drive since Giles doesn't have a California driver's licence. But since Molly and Rona are only 15 (as stated in "Potential"), neither of them would have drivers licences either. Even if you take the statement of their age to be slightly inaccurate, Molly (who is also from England) wouldn't have any kind of a driver's licence until she was 17, let alone a licence valid in California.

Shay

Correction: In the US, one can obtain a Learner's Permit at the age of 14 after passing a written test (The practical test to obtain the actual licence is taken at 16.), allowing one to drive if a licenced driver is in the vehicle. Giles' English licence would be sufficient in this case if they were pulled over.

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: In the scene where Spike's mother is singing the trigger song to him, she sings "Early one morning, just as the sun was shining." Every other time this song is sung by The First, and on the MP3 Woods plays, the words are "Early one morning, just as the sun was rising."

Correction: It's the tune that triggers Spike rather than the lyrics. Different artists tend to alter the lyrics when singing folk songs, and this may be the only version Robin could find.

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Corrected entry: Willow tracks down her old Wicca group when she needs help reversing a spell, but seems surprised that they're competent spell casters now (since the last time she saw them Tara was the only one with any kind of power). But if she's so surprised to find this out, why did she go to them? (as opposed to calling the coven in Devon or trying to contact Giles).

Shay

Correction: She's probably hoping they can direct her to someone who can help her.

Conversations With Dead People - S7-E7

Corrected entry: When Willow is talking to Cassie in the UC Sunnydale University Library, Cassie said she was sent to talk to her by Tara. Cassie says "she still sings the song you sang to each other on the bridge", referring to "Once More with Feeling". But Willow only sang 2 lines in the that episode. In "I've Got a Feeling", she sang "Ive got a feeling some kid is dreaming and were all stuck inside this wacky broadway nightmare", and in "Walk Through the Fire", she sang "I think this line's mostly filler".

julie sheridan

Correction: Willow & Tara sing "Under your spell" in a park somewhere in Sunnydale. Part of the song takes place on a bridge going over a pond.

Selfless - S7-E5

Corrected entry: In "Selfless", Anyanka is quite strong and holds her own against Buffy for quite a while. In previous episodes ("The Wish" and "Two To Go (1)" to be precise) Anyanka has had nowhere near this level of strength.

Shay

Correction: Anya has been closely involved with the gang for a number of years by this point. She's fought next to Buffy countless times. It can be taken for granted that she knows Buffy's fighting style and methods. She may not be any stronger, but she knows how to anticipate Buffy's attacks.

Touched - S7-E20

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Touched' Spike tells Buffy that her theory about the vineyard was right, but he wasn't there when she suggested this theory (in the episode 'Empty Places'), and no one from the group that did hear it told him about it.

Shay

Correction: Spike wasn't talking about Buffy's theory. In Dirty Girls, Buffy was saying that she thought Caleb had something of hers, but no one was supporting her (Giles, the potentials, etc) - that's when Xander and the rest of the girls got hurt. So, in 'Touched' Spike was referring to that, saying "You were right all along Buffy, they are protecting something." And then he added "And I think it's at the vineyard." So, Spike didn't know about Buffy's theory, or why she was kicked out of the house.

Lorie Langston

Get It Done - S7-E15

Corrected entry: In this episode the Chinese Potential is among the girls training in the garden, so why is she surprised a few episodes later in 'Dirty Girls' when she sees Faith training in the garden? Maybe she doesn't know Faith specifically, but she's been living at the Summers house for weeks with strange girls arriving and training every day. It shouldn't really register as a shock to her to see someone training in the garden.

Shay

Correction: She may have been surprised because she didn't expect a Slayer who had a lot of power to have to train.

Lessons - S7-E1

Corrected entry: When Buffy is in the basement with Spike, she rings Dawn on her mobile phone. When she is finished, she puts it in her pants at the back, because she has no pockets. She then opens a door, and we see her back, and the mobile phone is not there. A minute later, she gets the phone back from her pants, and rings Xander.

Correction: We do see Buffy's back, but we don't see it well enough to see if the phone is there or not.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the final episode, Willow turns all the Potential girls into Slayers, so they can fight the army of uber-vamps. This is obviously wrong because of episode 7.11, "Showtime", when one uber-vamp alone beats the bejeezus out of experienced slayer Buffy. There is no way 30 or so newly-formed slayers could've taken out thousands of uber-vamps, much less the humans who kill several themselves.

Correction: This has already been addressed. The reason that the first Ubervamp was so difficult was that they weren't sure how to kill it. Buffy thought it couldn't be staked; turns out she just needed to put much more force behind the blow. When the Potentials become Slayers they have the same strength. Buffy was also forced to fight the first Ubervamp without weapons. When the ordinary humans are fighting at the end they are all armed with heavy blades to decapitate the vamps.

Phoenix

Season 7 generally

Corrected entry: On both occasions in season 7 prior to "Chosen", whenever blood is spilled on the seal of the hellmouth, an ubervamp is brought out as the seal opens (e.g. when the First bleeds Spike; when the demon girl bleeds Xander). But, in "Chosen", when Buffy and the Potentials cut their hands to open the seal, no ubervamps are waiting to come out. Instead, the seal opens to reveal a set of stairs that lead them down to where the ubervamps are. That is the only way the Slayers could get to the vamps to surprise them, and the only way the whole ending with Spike could happen, but it isn't consistent with the rest of the season and what happens when blood is spilled on the seal.

Correction: The other episodes, the "First" planned the openings. They guided the people there. And there was a bit of a ceremony, maybe to call an ubervamp to the seal. But, in "Chosen" Buffy and the potentials took the fight to them. The opening was their plan, not guided by anyone or anything.

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.
