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

The Buffybot's mispronunciation of Giles as "Guyles" derives from a real-life encounter Joss Whedon had with people who claimed to be huge fans of the show but kept pronouncing the name incorrectly. See more »

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

Buffy: A Guide, but no food or water. So it leads me to the sacred place, and then a week later it leads you to my bleached bones?
Giles: Buffy, please... It takes more than a week to bleach bones.

Death is Buffy's Gift
13 October 2007 | by 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.
