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 Dawn closes the front door at 14:10 and the view cuts from interior (studio set) to exterior (actual house), the hardware and panes of glass in the door are an obvious mismatch, and the sidelights change from frosted glass panels (studio) to clear, mullioned glass with curtains (house). Also, the staircase visible behind Dawn in the exterior angle does not match the one on the set. See more
