Trivia

Spike mentions that he'd met Dracula before and that "the poncy bugger owes him £11". In a comic book entitled "Spike vs. Dracula", you find out why: when Bram Stoker's book first came out, Spike bought a copy for Drusilla, which Dracula himself destroyed. The book cost Spike £11. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1 min) A water bottle is visible on the mantel in Dracula's mansion, adjacent to more Dracula-appropriate urns and candles. See more »

Quotes

Xander: I'm exhausted just lookin' at those two. All the splashing and jumping and running. Shouldn't relaxing involve less exertion?
Anya: Absolutely. Exertion can lead to sweatiness.
Tara Maclay: Oh, which can cause the, um, pain and heartbreak of stinkiness. Better to just stay put.
Willow Rosenberg: I think we've just put our finger on why we're the sidekicks.

Darkness in the Powers
27 August 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While chasing a vampire in a cemetery, Buffy meets Dracula, who has come to Sunntdale to meet her. Buffy feels proud with the revelation of the greatest vampire in the world. Meanwhile, Giles secretly tells Willow that he will return to England since Buffy does not need his service of watcher anymore. Dracula turns Xander into his slave, and during the night, he visits Buffy, bites and put her under his thrall. Buffy hides the bite with a scarf and becomes powerless and seduced by the dark prince, who promises to disclose to her the darkness of her powers and increase them.

This episode has funny moments, like for example when Xander mocks Dracula in the cemetery or Willow tries to make Giles feel important as watcher or Buffy tells Dracula that she has watched his movies. But the conclusion is disappointing. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Buffy Versus Drácula" ("Buffy Versus Dracula")
