Writing and Acting[edit]

It is unclear why Buffy can't see Spike. Since he is only half-demon, the same rules should apply as to Tara: Demon part hidden, human part visible.

About the last line, is clarification really necessary? After all, Spike's chip ability prevents harm to only pure blood humans so the spell might as well work similarly. it's proven at the end that Tara isn't a demon so I'll remove the unnecessary reference to her.

Never mind. I was just confused about the wording... I'll just leave it untouched. Ekarderif 03:55, 4 February 2006 (UTC)


Is it really an error that the older scoobies have some beer before they turn 21? They've saved the world so many times they have literally lost track. Let them have a beer. Lots42 11:34, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

From the article on wikipedia, only possession is forbidden, not consumption. Therefore, it's not illegal. I won't remove the "error", but I let you consider removing it. Grrr 11:33, 23 february 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)
This is technically not an error. When Dawn says the line, Xander, Buffy, Riley, and Giles are in the frame. Buffy and Xander placed thier drinks down as Riley and Giles take their drinks up to sip. Dawn says the line, and both Riley and Giles look ashamed. Buffy and Xander don't react. Both Riley and Giles are older than 21 (Riley was a teaching assistant and de facto leader of the Initiative, so clearly of age). (talk) 19:51, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Buffy506.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Buffy506.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Dark Secret?[edit]

"We find out that Riley has a dark secret." I'm watching through these for the first time myself, and I didn't notice anything dark or secretive from Riley in either the episode itself or the summary, unless you count a possible drinking problem. I sure wouldn't. (talk) 07:12, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

(^ that was me without username, sorry) anyway, in light of knowing what the "dark secret" actually is, this episode gives absolutely no hint toward it. I'm taking the quote out. LoZfan03 (talk) 05:33, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
