Although "Seeing Red" is generally believed to have been Amber Benson's last episode of BtVS, she appears briefly in this episode, playing the corpse of Tara. When filming was done, Joss Whedon and the cast presented Benson with a tombstone-shaped cake to commemorate her final scene. See more »

Warren Meers: Listen... I thought this would be a place for me to buy magic, not a lecure about my faults. I need protection! I've got the Slater after me!
Rack: The Slayer is the least of your troubles.
Warren Meers: Okay... then let's talk about my skin troubles. On a scale of one to ten, I'd say they rank!
Rack: If I were you, I'd worry about the witch.
Warren Meers: Which witch? What... who are you talking about?
Rack: Willow. The Slayer's pal. She's the new power in this town, anyone with intuition can feel it. She is going to blow this whole town ...

Buffy will you shut up!
22 August 2010 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

First of all its a good episode, the writing is okay, directing was average the only good thing here is to see the dark hair Willow who is seeking revenge on Warren after he killed Tara. I love dark Willow she is so bloody powerful, and the actress Alyson Hannigan looks hotter with it.

The only problem I have the morality tone, compassion that Buffy express. When Dawn and Xander agrees that Warren need to get his punishment, our saint Buffy thought other wise. I have problem with that, when a human being kill another soul, he/she doesn't need to live. So be it, but truth being told I"m sick with the moral shove to my face.

And Spike left town? WHO THE HELL CARES?! At the end was pretty cool though, when Willow skin Warren with a poof! 'One down, two to go.'
