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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

While Willow, Xander, Tara and Anya in "I was made to love you" recognized immediately April as a robot, they don't do the same about Buffybot, despite its weird demeanor and speeches. Their judgment is clearly obfuscated by their affection towards the Slayer, that makes them think it's just shock and grief. See more »

Just before Buffy says, "Hello Kitty," in the desert, a blue shirt sleeve is briefly visible on the right-hand side of the screen. See more »

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")
