Everyone gathers at the Summers home for Buffy's twenty-first birthday party and it goes well... at first. Feeling neglected by Buffy and the gang, Dawn's wish to keep people from leaving her is answered by Halfrek, who binds the attendees of the party to the house. When Tara tries a spell to free them, she only makes the situation worse by accidentally releasing a demon trapped inside a sword. Written by

When Anya angrily tells Willow that she should work some magic to free everyone who came to Buffy's party from the house, Tara steps between them and says, "...you're not gonna make her do something she doesn't want to. And if you try, you'll have to go through me first." The triumphant smile on Tara's face suggests her memory of Buffy saying, in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Family
(2000), saying to Tara's relatives, "You want to take Tara out of here against her will, you gotta come through me." See more

I don't know why people get so turned off by slug.
Honey, *slugs* get turned off by slug.
