Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Conversations With Dead People - S7-E7

Question: Is Dawn's experience in this episode ever explained? Is it really their mother, or is it just the First messing with her?

Chosen answer: Dawn's experience here was meant to be a teaser for original plotline of season 7, intended to explore Dawn's Key-ness and how it affects her place in the universe now that it's gone. However, when SMG left the show, the writers were forced to pursue a different plotline to give viewers a satisfactory ending. So it was supposed to be Joyce when the episode was written, but subsequent reinterpretation implies that it is actually the First.
