Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Wrecked - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: Just before Buffy storms out on Spike, she puts on her denim jacket. When viewed from in front we can see the jacket is only half over her shoulders and her hair is loose. The shot cuts to view her from behind, and the jacket is now completely on and her hair is tucked under the collar.


The I In Team - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: The first shot of Maggie Walsh being impaled from behind with the skewer indicates that there is no one standing close by, judging by the amount of negative space around her. However, following shots reveal that the skewer is coming straight out of Adam's wrist, therefore he should have been visible in the previous shot.

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Graduation Day, Part 1' when Giles stabs the Mayor, as he takes the foil out of his chest you can see a wound on his shirt. When the shot changes it has disappeared. I know the Mayor is invincible and his wound heal in seconds, but it still takes a second or two for his wounds to close up, they don't just disappear. (00:15:40)


A New Man - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When Willow and Buffy are having breakfast, in the shot facing Willow she picks up her glass of orange juice and when the shot changes to Buffy picking up her coffee cup you can see the glass is still on the table and then Willow's hand reaching for it again.

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When George shoots Mrs. Frank, her body falls off the balcony headfirst on a closeup shot. She flips in the air once on her way down. But in the following wide shot, she flips in the air on her way down again.


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.

Gone - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: After Doris from Social Services leaves Buffy's house and Spike leaves after her, he takes his lighter out of Buffy's pocket. But earlier in the episode when everyone was packing away all of Willow's magic stuff, Buffy finds Spike's lighter and puts it in one of the boxes.


Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When the gang is in the Magic Box and they pass out, we see Buffy fall on the floor at the top of the stairs, but in the next shot she has moved and is now lying on the steps.

The I In Team - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When you first see Adam lying on the bed, before he wakes up you see his human side of his face on his right side. In the next scene the camera is over Maggie Walsh's shoulder and the human side of his face is now on the left side. Then just after he stabs Maggie it switches back again.

Spiral - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: The shape of the hole in the aluminium foil in the Winnebago's windshield changes shape several times throughout the course of the episode.


Some Assembly Required - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cordelia is being tied up in the corridor, Buffy leaps up, kicks the attacker, and drops to the ground next to Cordelia. In the next shot the attacker is stumbling to his feet, and Buffy is standing again, then quickly kneels down beside Cordy.

Chosen - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the episode when Buffy lands on the school bus she's wearing pointed toe pink shoes but in the next shot where she's jumping off the bus roof she's wearing brown Timberlake boots. (00:39:11 - 00:39:40)

Welcome To The Hellmouth (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The scene where Xander is on his skateboard, he becomes distracted seeing Buffy walk up the stairs and accidentally hits the pole. When the camera pans back, you can see Buffy is out of view, and is nowhere to be seen. Because she was still at the top of the stairs when Xander hit the pole, you should have been able to see her walking in the background.

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?


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.
