Monster of the Week:
There's no monster of the week in this episode, because it is mainly about Spike and his past, as well as Robin's attempt to cope with working with the man who killed his mother.
Product Placement: Wood apparently is using a G4 iMac with iTunes in order to trigger Spike into attacking him. This falls inline with the rest of the show's Apple promotion, as Willow can be often seen with what looks like a G3 Powerbook.
