Did You Know?


When Spike says "What's a word means 'glowing'... Gotta rhyme," it is an allusion to the episode "Fool for Love" in which Spike, in a flashback as a human, was trying to think of a word that went with "gleaming" for a poem he was writing before being rejected by Cecily. See more »


When Willow wakes up on her first morning back in Sunnydale, CA and tries to speak to Giles in the UK, she is told he is in a meeting all day. California is 8 hours behind the UK, so assuming that Willow rings at 8am, that would make it about 4pm in England. Giles would be free anytime soon, so Willow could have left a message and stayed home safe. Would have made a short episode, though. See more »


Anya: Here's something you should know about vengeance demons. We don't groove with the "sorry". We prefer "Oh God, please stop hitting me with my own rib bones".

A cheerful reunion- and the funniest quote of the season!
25 April 2006 | by (The dark place) – See all my reviews

Willow's back from England and there's some pesky magic brewing in Sunnydale which makes her invisible to her friends and her friends invisible to her which makes Willow feel ignored. The monster of this episode is the creepy skin-flaying paralyzing monster who does a very funny thing to Dawn which results in some funny scenes from Emma's Anya. The funniest line comes from an insane Spike who has had his soul restored- "I'm insane, what's his excuse" Classic! Another classic episode in what is sadly the last season of Buffy. It ties in well making the writing somewhat clever, too bad this little ditty didn't win any awards. That's a shame.
