The problem with this episode (and some other ones as of late) is illogical placement of conversations between Buffy, Giles, and her mother. Why do they talk in loud voices within the home if they don't want Dawn to find any of this info out? It is just kind of an annoying way to progress the plot. It is also equally annoying that this episode features Dawn running up to her room no less than 4 times and running away twice; we get the point, she is upset and mad. Thankfully Spike's performance saves the day, again.

Very strong episode about Dawn finding out what her true intendity is. She finds out that she is the key and freeks out and also we learn that Ben is actually Glory and Glory even meets Dawn but doesn't know that she is the key. 'Dawn: Why does everybody start acting all weird when I'm around? Xander: Me? Me not weird. Dawn: I'm not an idiot. I know you're talking about me. Xander: No, no, we really weren't. Anya: We were talking about sex. Dawn: They were talking about me, just like everybody is. Xander: Again, not so much. In fact, none. Anya: We were talking about sex. I mean, you know us, sometimes we like to pretend stuff- Joyce: Um... Xander: Anya! Anya: You know, like, say there's a fireman, or a shepherd- Buffy: You know what? Let's not have this exchange of images right now. Dawn: Oh. Right. Of course. Can't let Dawn hear anything. Fine. I'm just gonna go to bed. That way I won't accidentally get exposed to, like, words.'
