Faith and Buffy switch bodies. Trapped in Faith's body, Buffy is kept in police custody, but on the way to the precinct, the Watchers Council's retrieval team provokes an accident with an armored truck and captures her from the police car. Faith enjoys free life in Buffy's body, flirting with many guys in the Bronze, ultimately Ryan, and buys a ticket overseas. Willow introduces Buffy to Tara, who feels an evil aura in her soul. Willow and Tara risk a dangerous astral projection to the Nether Realm beyond the physical world to find the truth. Adam trains three vampires against fear, and they kidnap and threaten everyone in a church. Faith listens to the news in the airport and goes to the church, where Buffy, Riley and the gang are facing the monsters. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


Eliza Dushku (Faith) is Canadian and her accent sometimes slips through; most notably when she says "about" and pronounces it "aboot." When Faith-as-Buffy is at Giles's house with the gang, she says "What are you talking about?." You can hear Sarah Michelle Gellar using Eliza Dushku'a accent and saying "aboot" instead. See more »


When Adam confronts the vampire group in the sewers, he decapitates one, killing it. However, when the body falls to the floor, followed by the 'decapitated' head, the previously-fallen body clearly has a head attached. See more »


Willow: I'm sorry you're feeling all blechy. But we'll get together with Buffy another time, sometime soon. I think you'll really like her.
Tara: She's not your friend.
Willow: I may have overestimated the 'you liking her' factor.

It's not just an entertaining episode, it's also an insightful one
8 January 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Wow, what can I say about this episode. Buffy and Faith switch bodies and Sarah Michelle Gellar portrays one of her biggest climax at acting, she's just pure brilliant and this with this acting she shows she doesn't just have the looks and also can act. The episode starts tragicomic and continues as that. I loved how Gellar literally put Faith to Buffy's soul, she was very convincing and also Eliza Dushku was really good as well.

I also really loved Faith's redemption and confrontation with her former self and past that she actually hates. We find out that Faith is not just a wild girl with no soul, she's actually very emotionally depressed person. I love complicated characters and Faith is one of them. I loved her scene at church and fighting with herself as she declares she finds herself disgusting. It was so deep. But I really wish Faith would have made more appearances after this, season 7 is just too far.

Joss Whedon did a great job as always and it really paid off well, we had the chance to see that Faith is actually a human with feelings and a soul. My point to this soulful(half literally) episode is 10.
