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.

Trivia

The structure and concept of this episode (which for the most part follows Xander on what in another episode would be his subplot, while the series' more conventionally main characters are relegated to the background) is an homage to Tom Stoppard's 1967 existentialist play 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead', which follows the action of two relatively minor characters from William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" while using the actual main plot and characters from 'Hamlet' as occasional background and diversion.

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).

Best Buffy Episode
27 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just love this episode. Xander really carries it, something he's failed to do in the other Xander-center episodes IMO. Cordy is absolutely withering in her disdain for Xander and, of course, HOT. The monster plot is at first mysterious and ominous and later a beautiful in-joke. Jack O'Toole is brilliantly psychotic. His gang is pretty bleh, but they serve their purpose. Even Faith is interesting and sexy in this episode. The denouement is brilliant both in the gang's discussion of the monster and Xander's penultimate confrontation with Cordy.

Xander will forget the life lessons he's learned in this episode, but for one brief shining week he gets to be the man.
