Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Chosen - S7-E22

Trivia: In the final episode when Buffy, Xander, and Willow are wandering off talking about shopping, Giles turns round and says "The Earth is definitely doomed!" This is a little tribute to the end of the episode 'The Harvest' when Buffy, Xander and Willow wander off talking nonsense and Giles turns round and says a similar thing.

End Of Days - S7-E21

Trivia: This is the only episode to feature the lead actors from all four of Joss Whedon's Mutant Enemy productions: Sarah Michelle Gellar (obviously), David Boreanaz guest starred as Angel, Nathan Fillion (from "Firefly") played Caleb, while Eliza Dushku, who played Faith, was the lead on "Dollhouse".

Trivia: There were plans to kill Xander and have him return as the First. But it was decided that he was too important to the story to kill.

Season 7 generally

Trivia: After Giles comes back, eventually people start suspecting that he's the First. However, he's around for many episodes before that - take note of how he doesn't come into contact with anything (the First isn't corporeal so can't touch things). Very well done.

Trivia: In this episode, Andrew says "You go through the door and are confronted by Trogdor the Burninator", which is Homestar Runner content, Strong Bad Rules.

Season 7 generally

Trivia: Principal Wood was given the gender-neutral name "Robin" because when the season began production, the producers were unsure about what gender the character would be. So they gave the character a name that could have applied to either a male or a female.

Conversations With Dead People - S7-E7

Trivia: Willow's conversation with a dead person in this episode is with Cassie, of which it is explained that Willow isn't allowed to see Tara because she killed people. In actual fact, the writers did intend for Tara to appear in this episode, however actress Amber Benson was busy with other filming commitments.

Touched - S7-E20

Trivia: When Buffy asks Spike to stay he agrees and says 'the infernal torture device, the comfy chair'. This is a reference to one of the Monty Python 'Spanish Inquisition' sketches.

Season 7 generally

Trivia: Anyone who has read some of the BtVS books will notice that the background plot for season 7 (killing all the Potential Slayers and then the actual Slayers to end the line and let evil rule) is the plot of the book Pretty Maids All In A Row - Spike and Dru are trying to do just that.

Chosen - S7-E22

Chosen - S7-E22

Trivia: Xander was originally supposed to be the character that died in Chosen. He was suppose to die saving Dawn. Since Emma Caufield didn't want to be tied to doing any future Buffy projects the script was changed so that Anya would die. The script is the same except the parts at the end written for Anya and Xander were switched as well as the parts for Andrew and Dawn.

Season 7 generally

Potential - S7-E12

Trivia: Obvious with hindsight, but less so at the time. Kennedy is later revealed to be gay, and her interest in Willow is hinted at but not stated outright. However, when all the potentials are playing with the weapons, Rona grabs a stake, saying "I like the feel of wood in my hand". Kennedy arrives mid-way through that line, and says "lost me there". Possibly her thinking it's just a "middle of the conversation" comment, or just a blatant indicator of her sexual preference.

Touched - S7-E20

Trivia: This episode featured the first lesbian sex scene aired on a prime-time television network. UPN was more lenient than the WB; when the show was still aired on the latter, Willow and Tara weren't allowed to be shown in any situation even remotely sexual.
