Episode cast overview:
Rupert Giles (as Anthony Stewart Head)


Willow has another try at active magic, trying to cure her lovesick longing for Oz by means of a spell which makes her will come true, but thinks it failed while it's only delayed and sometimes works otherwise, more literally then she meant, so without anyone realizing for a while she blinds Giles, switches Amy from rat to girl and back, teleports Buffy, makes her tell off Riley because she and Spike fall madly in love and actually plan a wedding and makes Xander attract demons. Only when Anya, Xander and Giles, who was looking for magic to help Spike with his feeding problem, figure out what has happened can the magic be reversed, but the council of the upper demon D'Hoffryn, who granted her spell, has summoned Willow, intending to recruit her as a powerful evil witch, not the failure she believed to be...

A Powerful Spell
6 August 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While deeply missing Oz, Willow decides to put a spell on herself to make stronger and prevail her will. She believes the spell failed, and while talking to Giles, she mentions that he can not see anything. She tells Xander that Buffy and Spike could get married to each other, and that Xander would be a magnet of demons. When her wishes come true, Buffy, Giles, Xander and Spike get in real trouble.

"Something Blue" is a great episode of the Fourth Season, and I really liked it a lot. The romance between Buffy and Spike and their reactions in the end are hilarious. There are many funny lines and this story is really excellent. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Uma Ligeira Tristeza" ("A Slight Sadness")
