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 shot of the cafeteria food - sauerkraut, hot dogs, and spaghetti - is the same clip used in "I Only Have Eyes for You" (episode 2.19). In that episode, the food turns into snakes. See more »

Goofs

When the "battle of the Hellmouth" begins in the library, the handles abruptly disappear from the library side of the doors, obviously for safety reasons necessitated by the upcoming wire gag where Buffy is slammed through the doors into the corridor beyond. Also, the cylinder lock on the outside push-plate jumps from below the handle to above it. See more »

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.
