Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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.

Phixius

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.

Rlvlk

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the scene where Buffy and the rest of the gang are down in the Hellmouth, one of the slayers says ''I'm zipping back to Xander's whole bathroom speech'' - Xander didn't have a bathroom speech at that time. Xander did have a bathroom speech at one time but that was when Riley came to see Buffy.

Correction: When they all entered the school, Xander said 'Anyone who has to go to the bathroom, please go now.'

End Of Days - S7-E21

Corrected entry: In the episode 'End of Days' Xander is driving Dawn to safety and she stuns him with a taser. There is a shot from outside the car of it turning around and driving back towards Sunnydale, but how did Dawn turn the car without moving Xander out of the way, which would be impossible without stopping and getting out?

Shay

Correction: When the car is turning around you can see inside the car that Xander is still sitting in the driver's seat and Dawn is leaning over to steer and pedal the car.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: Spike walks into the school in the middle of the day with only his duster for protection. He should be dust, or at least smouldering a little bit.

Shay

Correction: Fair enough he would have been smouldering ,however, in the shot from outside the school you can see Spike with a blanket over his head and once it cuts to inside you can see him throwing the blanket off, so he was covered up after all.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In season 7, the first Ubervamp to escape the Hellmouth and attack Buffy is incredibly strong and hard to kill - in the end it's pure luck that lets Buffy defeat it. In 'Chosen', people (including the civilians) are killing Ubervamps all over the place with ease; if they're this easy to kill, why did Buffy struggle so much with the first one? Granted, Andrew says in the meantime that Ubervamps can actually be staked, but Anya adds that it's like pushing a stake through solid steel. Buffy couldn't stake one of them the first time, so how can the Potentials (who haven't anywhere near as much training or muscle power as Buffy) can do it with ease?

Shay

Correction: The Potentials have the same raw strength Buffy does but less training thanks to Willow's spell. Buffy had trouble staking the first Ubervamp because she put only the force necessary to kill a normal vamp behind the blow, which wasn't enough to break through the Ubervamp's chest. It's very normal in everyday actions to only use enough muscle power as you would expect to otherwise. Once they know to stake Ubervamps with enough force to go through a normal vamp's back, they have less trouble. All the non-Slayers kill Ubervamps with decapitation.

Phoenix

End Of Days - S7-E21

Corrected entry: How did Buffy know where to find the Potentials when they are attacked in the sewer? The First only told her that there had been an explosion, never mentioning a location, and none of the others had talked to Buffy so they couldn't have told her.

Shay

Correction: The First could have told her on the way. It definitely wants Buffy to find the Potentials because that will keep Buffy distracted and perhaps believed that the three Ubervamps would have killed off the Potentials before Buffy got there.

Phoenix

Selfless - S7-E5

Corrected entry: In 'Selfless' Anya wants to reverse her wish that killed 12 people and is unable to do it, but during 'The Wish' we were told that all you have to do is destroy her power source and all her wishes will be reversed (Anya has to have a power centre - we see in the episode 'Older And Far Away' that ALL vengeance demons have one). Even though the gang don't know this any more (they wouldn't have any memory of researching it), surely Anyanka herself would know her own weakness?

Shay

Correction: First, Anya may not want to destroy her power center because it would reverse every wish she ever granted, not just the most recent one. Second, breaking the power center would also make Anya a human. The point of the episode is that Anya has to learn to live in her own way and pay for her decisions, and to this end she believes that D'Hoffryn killing her would be justice. Asking D'Hoffryn to reverse the wish is the only way for the developing character to resolve the conflict.

Phoenix

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: Buffy says to the rest of the group "Tomorrow morning I will be going down into the hellmouth to finish this once and for all". Trouble is, Buffy didn't actually say at what time. So how did the rest of the group know what time they had to meet Buffy downstairs?

Correction: Well, we dont see EVERY second of their lives, she could have easily told someone off screen. Or she could have woken a few of them up.

Him - S7-E6

Corrected entry: In the season seven episode 'Him' any girl who sees RJ wearing his jacket falls in love with him.However,when Buffy, Willow and Xander are in the Bronze watching Dawn dance with RJ, RJ is wearing his magic jacket but Buffy and Willow don't fall under the spell until they see him later on in the episode.

Correction: They are far away (across the Bronze), and focusing more on Dawn, so they don't get a full blast of the jacket's power. It's only later when they talk to him one on one that the jacket works its mojo.

Shay

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the season 7 finale "Chosen" Buffy gets stabbed by an Ubervamp. In one scene you see blood running down her shirt but in the final scene she walks towards where Sunnydale had been and her shirt is clean.

Correction: We see Buffy get stabbed through het white shirt in the cavern, but when walking towards the "Sunnydale crater" at the end, she has her arms crossed, with a beige jacket (which she has been wearing all the time) underneath her arms covering up the blood on the shirt, so its simply the clean jacket we see not the bloodied shirt.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Chosen', roughly 30 Slayers and Spike attack the Hellmouth and leave the civilians alone upstairs to stop the escaping Ubervamps. Wouldn't it have made more sense to leave a few of the Slayers upstairs to fight with them? They could have easily beaten back the Ubervamps and Bringers, instead Andrew and Anya (the two weakest members of the gang) are left alone at one escape route, leading to Anya's death.

Shay

Correction: In a fight like that, with an almost unlimited number of ubervamps, wouldn't you want all of your big guns on the front line? The less slayers on the front line, the bigger the number of ubervamps that get by.

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: In the season 7 episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me', during the fight at the start Spike stakes the vampire about to kill Robin with the wooden handle of a shovel. As he pulls it away you can see in the next shot that it's the end with the metal head that's facing Robin, not the wooden end.

Shay

Correction: If you watch more carefully when Spike pulls out the shovel (just slightly off screen), we see him spin the shovel around, so in the next shot the metal part in facing Robin.

Season 7 generally

Corrected entry: For most of Series 7 there is a girl from Hong Kong among the Potentials. No one can speak Cantonese and she doesn't speak any English, so how did Giles convince her to get on a plane with him and fly to America? She wasn't sent by her watcher - Giles states very clearly in 'First Date' that she never had a watcher, and in 'Potential' Buffy mentions to the others that 'Giles has gone to Hong Kong to find the Potential there.'

Shay

Correction: There would obviously be people in Hong Kong who could speak English and explain everything to her.

Selfless - S7-E5

Corrected entry: In the season 3 episode "Doppelgangland", which originally aired in 1999, Anya told a barman that she was 1120. This would mean she was born in 879 AD. But in the season 7 episode "Selfless", a flashback to 880 AD showed her as a young woman (about 20). She should've only been one year old.

Correction: In the same way that vampires mark their ages from their 'conversion', Anya might be calculating her age from when she became a vengeance demon.

Tailkinker

Him - S7-E6

Corrected entry: In "Him", after Xander has his flashback to "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" he smiles and says 'Good times...', but during that episode he explicity stated that he hated what was happening. Nearly being axe murdered by a crazed horde of women shouldn't be a happy memory, it should be a traumatic one.

Shay

Correction: I don't see this as a mistake. Looking back at the day when every woman in town was crazy about him, Xander probably does see the upside.

pinkwafer

Season 7 generally

Corrected entry: In the episode where Spike is having memories of his mother, he tells her that Drusilla made him what he is (a vampire), telling us she is his sire, but in series two we find out that Angel was his sire.

Correction: Joss Whedon has said that technically Angel is Spike's grand sire because Angel is Drusilla's sire but it basically amounts to the same thing.

Kara

First Date - S7-E14

Corrected entry: How does Wood know his mother was killed by a vampire? We saw Spike kill his mother in the season 5 episode "Fool for Love". Spike broke her neck on an empty subway. There were no witnesses, and no bite marks.

Correction: Vampires brag, so it's very likley that Spike bragged to Wood's mother's watcher that he had just killed his slayer.

Kara

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: When the gang are preparing for the big showdown, Andrew gets out a piece of paper and starts to do a Thank You speech. Anya interrupts him and leads him away, putting her arm around his shoulder. She is on his left hand side as they turn. The shot changes and we see them leave in the background, only now, Anya is on Andrew's right hand side.

Correction: This is because they turn independantly, not as a unit. It is quicker to turn the way they did. The result will have their orientation with respect to each other reversed, but everyone else will see them in the same place just looking the other direction.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: Buffy gets all the Potentials together and does another inspirational speech, telling them her plan to turn them all into Slayers. Chao-Ahn is there. This is the girl who doesn't speak English, so who in the Buffyverse is going to explain what was just said?

Correction: Given the amount of dictionaries we see lying round the house in 'Get It Done', we can assume that Chao-Ahn isn't the only Potential who doesn't speak English, but there is a way to communicate with them (albeit slow and time-consuming). It wouldn't be that hard to fill her and the rest of them in on the basics of the plan; just because we never saw it doesn't mean it never happened offscreen.

Shay

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: When we flashback to Buffy telling everyone she is going to share the Slayer's power using the axe/sythe-thingy, she says that it is time for them to make a choice. They can all choose to take on the power and fight with her. As Willow is doing the spell, we see lots of other Potentials around the world receiving the power. But they were never allowed the choice. And what if one of the Potentials listening to Buffy's inspirational speech had said, "OK, we have a choice? Well, I don't want to be any part of this. I don't want to be a Slayer - I want to be a normal teenage girl". She would still have been hit with it because Willow's spell was just 'switching on' all the Potentials out there. There was no choice to be made.

Correction: The choice was not about getting the power but about using the power to fight alongside Buffy and Faith, which could easily lead to death.

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the season 7 finale "Chosen" Faith says to Buffy "You have to live like a person now, you're not the one and only chosen any more." Technically, Buffy hasn't been the one and only chosen since she died at the end of season 1. Though we did not see it, at that very second Kendra was called.

Correction: Maybe Buffy hasn't been the only Slayer, but she's always conisdered herself to be the main Slayer (referring to Kendra as 'The Rookie' and talking down to Faith). Also, for the last 4 years she has technically been the only active Slayer since Faith was in a coma, then in prison.

Shay

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Corrected entry: In Season 7, Ep 13 'The Killer in Me,' Buffy and Spike go to the long-abandoned Initiative to find information on Spike's backfiring chip. Only problem is, in Season 4, Ep 21 'Primeval,' government officials decided to have the Initiative facility filled in with concrete.

Correction: Doesn't mean it was actually done - this is the government, after all. Besides, the Initiative facility was enormous, so filling it completely would be a huge project. It seems more likely that they would simply concrete up the entrances, leaving the actual facility intact but inaccessible.

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Corrected entry: In the episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me' Spike and Dru are waiting for Spike's mother when the enters her living room, but how did they get into the house? Even entering his former home a vampire needs an invitation, and since she was surprised to see them she couldn't have been the one who let them in.

Shay

Correction: If no living person claims ownership of the house then vampires can enter as they please. Seeing Spike with his mother it is probably safe to assume that it was his house and she was a long term guest not an official resident.

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.
