Goofs

At the funeral home, when Buffy and Giles open up the different drawers to look for the Bretheren, they open the same drawer every time. The crew made a few changes in the background and Buffy is probably on a platform the second time she looks, but it's the same. You can tell by the smudges on the inside of the door. See more »

The second episode to link to the arc, this is better than the previous entry. It is, again, a bit formulaic and a bit generic, but it's a lot more enjoyable than other entries. I find The Master really entertaining. The main plot involving Buffy doesn't really interest me though.
