Trivia

Both Willow and Spike, irresponsibly trying to help Dawn to resurrect her mother, show once again the sincere affection they had for Joyce, their surrogate mother figure. See more »

Goofs

At about 21:26, in a wide shot of Willow's and Tara's dorm room, a seated crew member can clearly be seen off to the left where the corner of the room should be. Additionally, part of the base of a piece of lighting equipment can be seen near the foot of the bed. See more »

Quotes

Anya: Well, I just think I understand sex more, now. It's not just about two bodies smooshing together. It's about life. It's about making life.
Xander: Right. When two people are much older and way richer and far less stupid.
Anya: Breathe. You're turning colors. I'm not ready to make life with you. But I could, we could. Life could come out of love and our smooshing and that's beautiful. It all makes me feel like we're a part of something bigger. Like I'm more awake somehow, you know?

Dawn of the Dead
12 October 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Buffy organizes the funeral services for Joyce without a wake, respecting her last will, and after the service she meets Angel, who has come to Sunnydale to support her. Meanwhile Dawn becomes obsessed in bringing her mother back. She steals infamous witchcraft books from Willow and from the Magic Box, and helped by Spike, they visit the demon Doc, an expert in black magic that teaches Dawn resurrection techniques. She steals a Ghora demon egg in the Hell Mouth with Spike for her black magic, and she interrupts her spell after a serious conversation with Buffy. Meanwhile Ben unintentionally discloses to Jinx that The Key is an innocent in a human form.

"Forever" is a great episode of this Season. The relationship between the siblings Ben and Glory is finally disclosed; Buffy realizes that she must remain close to Dawn to keep their family together; and Glory now knows that the key is a human being. I do not understand why the insecure Willow helped the annoying Dawn in this episode. The presence of Spike at Joyce's grave indicates that he really liked her a lot. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Para Sempre" ("Forever")
