Storyline

At the hell-mouth, the Master of evil explains to his boy heir Collin that fear rules people better then love or hate. He manages to use the young schoolboy Billy Palmer to make every student of Sunnydale High's terrifying nightmares come true, ranging from Xander appearing in class wearing only boxer-shorts to being chased by murderers, losing one's favorite abilities or poisonous spiders coming out of one's schoolbooks...

Trivia

When they discuss Wendell's spiders, Xander says, "I'm unruffled by spiders. Now, if a bunch of Nazis crawled all over my face..." Later, when he enters a schoolroom where his clown nightmare will take place, swastikas are spray-painted on the wall behind him. See more »

Goofs

Aldo and Willow were attempting to preform the famous duet from Puccini's Madame Butterfly. Willow was dressed to play the title character Cio-Cio-San and Aldo was playing her new American husband Pinkerton. In the actual duet, Cio-Cio-San does not come in until after Pinkerton's first five lines (where Willow asked if it was her turn). The first prompting look Aldo gave her was factually inaccurate.

Quotes

Willow: Personal question?
Xander: Yeah, shoot.
Willow: When Buffy was a vampire, you weren't still, like, attracted to her, were you?
Xander: Willow, how can you - I mean, that's really bent. She was... grotesque.
Willow: Still dug her, huh?
Xander: I'm sick. I need help.
Willow: Don't I know it.

The One Where Everyone's Nightmares Are Coming True...
28 February 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode, even though I find it creepy.

In this episode, a little boy was injured and put into a coma by his coach. And because of that, everyone's nightmares are coming true. And it's scaring the crap out of everybody. Buffy's nightmare is that the Master got free and she turned into a vampire. Xander's nightmare is that he goes into class wearing only boxer shorts. And Willow's is something about clowns. They are all creepy and funny, especially Xander's. Some other nightmares that came true include losing their favoritie ability and spiders coming out of a textbook. In the end, the little boy who is accidentally causing these nightmares to come true, wakes up and his coach is found out to be the one who hurt him.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10.
