Trivia

In the DVD audio-commentary, writer Drew Goddard said he asked Joss Whedon to write a song for Emma Caulfield (Anya). Whedon refused, arguing he was too busy (he was working in Firefly (2002) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) at the same time). The day after, Whedon showed up with the song, saying he could not stop thinking about it. See more »

Goofs

When Buffy argues with Xander about killing Anya, she reminds him that she once killed Angel. While she is using the term more for semantic effect, the phrase "killed" is still misleading. As the Slayer, she knows that, as a vampire, Angel is technically already dead, and that vampires are "killed" either by a stake to the heart, being set on fire, or beheading. Actually, using a sword, she just sent him in Hell. See more »

Quotes

Spike: I don't trust what I see anymore. I don't know how to explain it, exactly. Like I've been seeing things. Dru used to see things, you know? She'd always be staring over the sky watching cherubs burn or the heavens bleed, or some nonsense. I used to stare at her and think she'd gone completely sack of hammers. But she'd see the sky when we were inside and it'd make her so happy. She'd see showers, she'd see stars... Now I see her.

Oh my! What an episode..
3 November 2016 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This episode is marvelous television writing. One of the last episodes of the show that we will say "what an episode" after watching i. Anya is pretty much my favorite character apart from Buffy. I really feel the struggle of being without a self she is going through. We see that since her human life Anya didn't know who she was, what was her personality. She practically wasn't a human when she actually was one. A deep subject, being told through a demon. But it's all thanks to Emma Caulfield's brilliant acting. She wowed the viewers once again after her breathtaking performance in "The Body".

Really few can be said when an episode's writing is top notch. Sorry to see this is the only Anya-centric episode, since she's a very interesting character played by a very talented actress. I get very emotional during the last scene with Xander and Anya. One of the show's top episodes. Near perfection.
