Trivia

In the hospital, the mental patients each start mumbling the phrase "What's the frequency?". This is an obvious reference to the infamous event, in 1986, where CBS Newsman Dan Rather was accosted by (then) unknown assailants. One of the assailants, apparently deranged, kept repeating the question "Kenneth, what is the frequency?" (which meant absolutely nothing to Dan Rather) See more »

Goofs

During the opening scene in the Magic Box, in the shot at 1:07 you can see a crew member's head moving at the left edge of the frame beyond the top of Tara's head. See more »

Buffy: Dawn!
Joyce: Oh, baby!
Buffy: What did you do?

Joyce: Oh, Sweetie, no. Wha-what is this all about?

Finding the Truth
8 October 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On the day of her twentieth birthday, Buffy tells the Scooby Gang that Dawn is The Key and they act in a suspicious way with Dawn. In the night, Dawn leaves the party and breaks into the Magic Box with Spike, seeking Giles's diary and finding the truth about her. Meanwhile, Glory destroys the Knights of Byzanthium and somehow switches body with Ben, fighting against Buffy and her friends. Willow uses a powerful teleportation spell to momentarily get rid off Glory.

In this good episode, Dawn is completely confused and lost after finding the truth about her, trying to disclose what she really is. The relationship between Glory and Ben increases the mystery about these two characters. Spike, as usual, is responsible for the funniest lines and situations. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Laços de Sangue" ("Blood Ties")
