Trivia

In the confrontation against Maclay family, all Scoobies are a wall towards their bigotry. Even Spike, though claiming he doesn't care, punches Tara's nose (knowing it gives more pain to him than Tara) to show she's not a demon. See more »

Goofs

When Willow and Tara enter the Magic Shop at 14:15 they leave the door slightly ajar, and it stays that way in the background through the act break at 14:38 and Tara's subsequent introduction of Donny to her friends, but when she asks Donny why he came, the door suddenly is shut. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Willow: Tell me a story.
Tara: Okay. Once upon a time, there was, um... a kitty. She was very little, and she was all alone, and nobody wanted her.
Willow: This is a very upsetting story.

The Real Family of Tara
24 September 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Buffy tells Giles the truth about Dawn and they decide to keep the secret about her origin. Buffy moves back home to stay together with her sick mother and Dawn. On the Eve of Tara's birthday, her big brother Donny, her father and her cousin visit her to bring her back home, since she would have a demon inside that would unleash in her twentieth anniversary. Meanwhile, The Beast forces Lei-Ach demons to chase and kill Buffy. Tara casts a spell to her friends to make demons invisible bringing trouble to her friends.

This reasonable episode is centered in Tara, a character that has not been well explored along the last seasons. Tara sees who her real family is, increasing her bonds with the Scooby group. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Família" ("Family")
