Goofs

When Spike is testing out the Buffybot, and she halfheartedly tries to stake him, he grabs her. In the first camera angle, where Spike and the Buffybot are facing the camera, the Buffybot's hair is under Spike's arms. In the second angle, her hair is over his arms. See more »

Quotes

Xander: Buffy's gone insane.
Willow Rosenberg: What? What'd she do?
Xander: Brace yourself. You're not gonna believe it.
Tara: Everyone, before we jump all over her, people do strange things when someone they love dies. When I lost my mother, I-I did some pretty dumb stuff, like lying to my family and staying out all night.
Anya: Buffy's boinking Spike.
Willow Rosenberg: Oh. Well, Tara-Tara's right. Grief can be powerful, and we shouldn't judge...
Tara: What, are you kidding? She's nuts.

Death is Buffy's Gift
13 October 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Buffy is feeling that she is turning into stone, losing her ability to love and her humanity, and wants to take a break in her vampire slayer's duties. Giles persuades her to travel for a vision quest in a sacred place in the desert to bring her concentration back. Meanwhile, Spike gets the Buffy-robot from Warren and both the Scooby gang and Glory's minions believe that the robot is the real Buffy, and the minions assume that Spike is The Key. Buffy has a vision of the First Slayer, who tells her that death is her gift. Spike resists Glory's tortures and receives his reward in the end.

"Intervention" is one of the best episodes of the Fifth Season so far, alternating dramatic and hilarious moments. The reaction of Xander and Anya assuming that Buffy is having sex with Spike is extremely funny. The attitude of Buffy with Spike in the end of the episode is probably the greatest moment of this great show. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Intervenção" ("The Intervention")
