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
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
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.
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
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."
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
