original airdate--October 9,2001       rating--3.7/5.6 million

music--Theme Song: "Buffy Theme" by Nerf Herder

 

Body count--Child of Words, solidificate by Willow and Tara's spell and decapitated by Buffy with an axe.

Goof: When Dawn is possessed by the demon that "hitched a ride" with Buffy when she was brought back from the dead, Dawn breathes fire and a pipe is clearly visible in one of the shots with the fire coming out of it.

  • When Spike assures Summers sisters he too had to dig with bare hands out of his grave, it's just a merciful lie: Spike never had a "proper" funeral (AtS "Not fade away"). Dru probably just put his body some inches underground, as she did with Darla (AtS "Reunion").
