Storyline

When Xander realizes that he isn't needed as much as he'd like to believe, his quest to prove he's cool leads him to an unforgettable night that finds him consorting with fast women, raising the dead and rolling with a dangerous crowd that could put Sunnydale in a world of hurt. Meanwhile, Buffy, Giles and the rest of the crew engage in a furious battle with the Sisterhood of Jhe, an all-female demon apocalypse cult that intends to reopen the Hellmouth and bring about the end of the world.

Goofs

At 35:42, as Jack and his gang are running down the street after Xander's car and Jack shouts, "He's heading for the school," everyone in fact is heading *away* from the school, which is visible in the background behind Jack, only a half-block back up the street (and extending all the way down the left side of the street, as well).

Over the top?
18 April 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I am a real Buffy fan and have almost watched all the episode. But one of the episode that dissatisfied me is this one. I don't know why it have such a great grade, 8,7/10.

This episode was for me, a plot which could be very good, but instead went wrong. This episode is over the top. Much is happening during 40-45 minutes, for me it was too much. This episode is concentrated much on Xander, and well it would turn up great if Buffy and the other one wouldn't interfere with that. Instead they almost take more place than Xander, because they have a greater "mission" than him. And this episode was quite unfair...

The Scooby gang totally ditched Xander in a subtle way and hey the Scooby Gang should do everything together, mortal as immortal. For me this episode gets a strong 6. It doesn't reach a 7, unfortunately. Josh Wheedon exaggerated to much, at least for me.
