While mourning Joyce's death, Giles goes to his home and has a drink while listening to "Tales of Brave Ulysses" by Cream. This is the same song that he and Joyce listened to in "Band Candy" from Season 3, before having sex together. This is significant to show Giles, no longer around Buffy and needing to be strong, remember Joyce and remark his loving father-figure to Buffy, as opposed to the usual Watcher. See more
