Trivia

The title "Calvary" references the site outside of Jerusalem where Jesus Christ was allegedly crucified. Another name for the place Calvary is Golgotha, which means the place of a skull. Among other possible reasons for the writers to choose this title, Charles Gunn and Connor have to go to a site where a Soul Eater has been buried, chop off its head, and prepare its skull for a re-ensouling ritual - hence making that scene a Golgotha, a place of a skull.

How did you survive this long being so retarded?
3 April 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

How did you survive this long being so retarded? - This episode takes the dialog even further than 'Soulless' but not with better results. I love with how much the writers got away with, it would be normal for Cable TV but this was aired on the WB. There were a lot of insults like 'Fred' telling 'Lilah' to shut her fat mouth and 'Lorne' calling her a walking infection and of course 'Angelus' who takes it a little further and tells 'Fred' he wants to rape her to death. My main issue with this episode is 'Lilah's death, why couldn't it have been 'Fred' or 'Gunn' or 'Lorne'? 'Lilah' had plenty of story lines left and to be honest, I was even hoping she would become a regular, damn the writers! Another thing that I didn't really like was 'Cordy', her character was so off, I was actually very happy when they revealed she was 'The Beast''s master. My least favorite scene was when they did the spell to re-ensoul 'Angel', it took to long and it was already obvious he was still 'Angelus'. But other than those issues, I love the episode, it's so dark and had plenty of twists. I don't love it as much as the previous 11 episodes, but it still is strong enough to be another superb season 4 episode. CORDELIA: We'll find another way. I'm sure if we just all... LILAH: What? Hold hands and sing a hymn? That might be a little hard when the Beast is ripping your guts out. CORDELIA: Lilah, I know things look grim right now. LILAH: Don't go watchtower on me Saint Cordelia. I don't think I could stomach it. CORDELIA: Man, I'd love to punch your face in. LILAH: Are you trying to turn me on?. (9.0 out of 10)
