Angel

Ground State - S4-E2

Factual error: In the flashback to Gwen as a child in 1985, she is dressed in a jacket tagged with an "Old Navy" zipper. That clothing store chain wasn't founded until 1994.

Cubs Fan

Awakening - S4-E10

Other mistake: The Chinese writing shown tattooed all over Wo-Pang's body is nonsense (a small number of random characters repeatedly jumbled together), although Wesley reads it as if it is language. (Although one might argue that the writing is meant to be some sort of code, there is no evidence in the show itself to suggest that, and Wesley refers to "translating" rather than "decoding" it; for these reasons it is more likely to be simply a mistake rather than an intentional decision.) (00:16:40)

Watcher

Awakening - S4-E10

Other mistake: During Angel's fight with the Beast, he is choked by the throat and begins gagging. Since Angel doesn't breathe, there's no air for him to lose, so he shouldn't gag.

Cubs Fan

Calvary - S4-E12

Audio problem: During Lilah's failed attempt to rescue Angelus, when Gunn shoots at Angelus with the tranquilizer gun, Angelus passes out then hits the ground. When he is about to pass out, we hear the sound effect of him hitting the ground before he even begins to fall over, and instantly in the next camera angle he hits the ground. (00:08:20)

bane

Salvage - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Angelus is drinking from dead Lilah, in one shot Lilah's hand is hanging by her side while Angelus holds her, but in the next shot - just before he drops her - Lilah's hand is gripping for support at Angelus shoulder. (00:01:50)

Salvage - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When Wesley tells Faith that Angelus is back, she says, "Step away from the glass" and hangs up the phone. When Wesley jumps from his chair (to allow Faith to smash through the glass and escape) you can see Faith behind the glass with her hands up to her face and standing, but in the close up of Faith her hands are at her sides and she is only just getting out of her chair. (00:23:20)

bane

Players - S4-E16

Audio problem: When Gwen says to Garret, "I know the risk, but I'm going in there with or without your help," her lips keep moving as if she's still speaking.

THGhost

City Of - S1-E1

Angel: Doyle, I don't want to share my feelings, I don't want to open up. I want to find the guy that killed Tina, and I want to look him in the eye.
Doyle: Then what?
Angel: Then, I'm going to share my feelings.

Trivia: Angel's human name was Liam. "Liam" is an Irish form of "William", so basically, Angel and Spike have the same name.

Epiphany - S2-E16

Question: If Angel didn't experience a "Moment of Perfect Happiness" from his night with Darla, why does he go through the same motions he went through from losing his soul before?

Answer: Due to his epiphany, Angel basically had the 'true darkness' he worked so hard to reattain ripped away from him, like his soul was after sleeping with Buffy.
