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.

The melody that Doc hums while gathering ingredients for Dawn and Spike is the motif associated with "Peter" from Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf." See more »

Goofs

When Willow "magics" a book at 21:17, you see it slide out on its shelf as she gestures with her hand, but the subsequent shots in the sequence do not match its motion, so you see it slide out a second time in close-up and then see it slide out a third time in the background as she walks away.

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?

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...
