Trivia

Goofs

In the opening scene in Istanbul, an Arabian background music is heard but it should have been a Turkish music instead of Arabian since Istanbul is a Turkish country. See more »

Buffy is the coolest mom EVER
16 July 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This is the beginning of Series 7 I hate the character The First because all that it does is talk in different forms to Spike. The plot is It's Dawn's first day at the newly re-opened Sunnydale High School, and it's just like old times for Buffy as some undead students rise up and blame the Slayer for failing to protect them. Dawn and Buffy, together with some of Dawn's new friends, join together to defeat the evil. Meanwhile, the newly-ensouled Spike is seeking solace in the basement of the new school, and Willow is progressing in her rehabilitation with Giles in England. this isn't the best BtVS episode but EVERYONE referencing Buffy as Dawn's mom in this episode was hysterical it was so funny.
