Storyline

Buffy is back home, to her mother Joyce's great relief, which calls for a dinner invitation for the while gang, but the mood remains gloomy, despite her resuming the main slaying tasks although for the others things can't just return to their former state, not in the least because the obviously amused principal Snyder pays no attention to pleas to take Buffy back (mother's threat to take the case to the mayor even has an inverse effect), while Buffy still dreams of Angel. After a dead cat found in the Summers bookcase, other stinking corpses come to life again, a phenomenon which must have something to do with a the mysterious Nigerian mask with lighting red eyes mother Joyce bought, fortunately no secret to Giles... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Joyce describing Snyder was cut: "Have you ever noticed his teeth? They're like tiny rodent teeth - horrible gnashing little teeth. You just want to pull them out with pliers." See more »

Goofs

As Giles is driving from the school to Buffy's house we see him on Main Street, passing the Espresso Pump. Moments later, when he hits the zombie, he has mysteriously reversed course and is once again passing the Espresso Pump, only this time in the opposite direction. See more »

Quotes

Oz: [about the reanimated cat] It looks dead, it smells dead, yet it's moving around. That's interesting.
