Goofs

Throughout the opening scene in the Magic Box you can see the boom microphone reflected 11 times in the glass of the display case behind Buffy. The first is at 0:06; the most obvious is at 2:17 (when the boom sweeps across, tracking Buffy); and the boom operator is visible as well in the reflection at 2:35. See more »

Finding the Truth
8 October 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

On the day of her twentieth birthday, Buffy tells the Scooby Gang that Dawn is The Key and they act in a suspicious way with Dawn. In the night, Dawn leaves the party and breaks into the Magic Box with Spike, seeking Giles's diary and finding the truth about her. Meanwhile, Glory destroys the Knights of Byzanthium and somehow switches body with Ben, fighting against Buffy and her friends. Willow uses a powerful teleportation spell to momentarily get rid off Glory.

In this good episode, Dawn is completely confused and lost after finding the truth about her, trying to disclose what she really is. The relationship between Glory and Ben increases the mystery about these two characters. Spike, as usual, is responsible for the funniest lines and situations. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Laços de Sangue" ("Blood Ties")
