Storyline

Even by Sunnydale standards, pupils and teachers have disturbing illusions which make them do crazy things. Giles soon realizes that is a poltergeist, and insists it must be his Jenny, but Willow's research in her PC -preparing to take over her computing classes- points to the 1955 incident Buffy witnesses in a vision, when student James Stanley shot dead his teacher and lover Grace Newman, one of them is the ghost stuck in reliving the fatal tragedy, especially as its anniversary is on the high school's annual, now approaching Sadie Hawkins Dance with gender role reversal. Willow plans an elaborate exorcism, but the ghost plays dirty. Angelus' appearance changes everything... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

(at around 40 mins) As the Scoobies return to the school for the second time looking for Buffy, it is clearly obvious that while standing in front of the school, it's clearly the same shot as the first time they stand in front of the school. This is particularly noticeable because you can clearly see Buffy, who's inside the building at the time, also standing in the group. See more »

The One With The Fifties Flashback...
11 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so good. It's interesting and different from the other episodes. I just enjoy it so much. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes from this season.

In this episode, Sunnydale High School is being haunted by the ghosts of a former student, who fell in love with his teacher, and then since she didn't want to be with him, she dumped him, and he did a murder-suicide, back in the 1950s. The ghost of the student is trying to recreate that night, so he can find peace. But since the story always ends the same way, an innocent man accidentally kills an innocent woman, but he has no idea why. It's not until Buffy and Angel are in the school and the student posses Buffy, whilst the teacher possess Angel, can the two spirits finally make peace.

Best part of the episode: When Buffy and Angel make up whilst being possessed.

Worst part of the episode: The snakes.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
