Trivia

This was the episode which introduced Amber Benson, playing Tara Maclay, to the show. Although urban legend has it that Benson played an uncredited part in Season Three's Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Doppelgangland (1999), that is incorrect. This is her first appearance on the show. She was originally passed over for the part by Joss Whedon because she did not fit his mental image of what Tara should look and act like, but Marti Noxon convinced Whedon to give Benson another reading, and she so impressed him, he decided to retool the character to fit the actress.

Goofs

Characters do not have voices, yet are able to gasp audibly and make some noises. EXPLANATION: Voiceless sounds are those in which the vocal folds do not vibrate. Vowels are always voiced; some consonants are voiced, but many are not. Voiceless consonants ("t", "p", "k", etc) do not use the voice. They are percussive and use hard sounds. These sounds can be made by a person even if their vocal folds were removed or damaged; thus, a gasp or sigh (sharp in- or exhalation of air) can also be made without using voice. See more »

This episode made me write my first review.
12 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and really didn't begin to love the show until Season 4 started. This episode "Hush" was view by me alone in the dark just after Midnight with my windows open and the wind blowing through furiously by an after storm. The writers of this episode did an excellent job scaring the heck out of me. I was in awe the entire episode which I just finished 2 minutes ago. Amazing doesn't touch the surface of what this episode accomplishes with almost no dialogue. If you've never given this show much thought at least watch this episode. If this doesn't impress you then no episode probably will.

BTW My Heart is still racing...
