Trivia

After Anya in past episode, it's time for Spike to give a loving and sad eulogy about Joyce. They are technically both potential very evil foes, a demon and a vampire, but they seem to have admired and loved the lady. See more »

Goofs

At 7:15, when the camera tracks down the hallway past the open door to Buffy's room, you can see over the top of the set. The studio wall is clearly visible, as is the lighting instrument that is supplying the "sunlight" streaming in through the set's window. See more »

One of the finest hours of television ever
22 August 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Becoming part 2, was only the beginning of heartbreaking Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes.

I have waited so much for The Body episode and I was astonished, but not as much as the rest of the IMDb viewers. The Body which got a higher grade than Forever, is a bit understandable, but not completely.

Still Forever is not a episode for every watcher, it's heartbreaking, mournful and gives you guilt. When I watched it I could not laugh to Americas Funnies Homevideos (AFV) and that is actually rare(!) It's different from the other episodes, because there is just a minute or two of violence. But in the end you forget about it, you just want to be with Buffy and hug her and lie and tell her that everything is going to be fine, when she falls down to the floor, broken-hearted.

An unforgettable episode in TV history...
