Trivia: While Joss Whedon considers the 1992 movie non-canon, two characters were carried over: Buffy herself (obviously), and her first Watcher, Merrick. Merrick only made one appearance on the show, through a flashback, and was played by Richard Riehle; in the film, he was played by Donald Sutherland.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Except for Buffy, all of the First's incarnations at the end of the episode are the previous seasons' Big Bads, in reverse chronological order: Warren (season 6), Glory (season 5), Adam (season 4), Mayor Wilkins (season 3), Drusilla (season 2), and The Master (season 1).Cubs Fan
Trivia: In the season 6 episode "Doublemeat Palace", Buffy has to get a job working at a local fast food joint. The writers went out of their way to make it seem like the most miserable, degrading job ever. After this episode aired, several fast food franchises in real life like Burger King pulled their ads from Buffy in protest.
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.
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.troy fox
Trivia: In "Where The Wild Things Are," Willow mentions that she used to have a crush on Giles. This is evident in "I Robot, You Jane." When Buffy and Willow are talking at Willow's locker about Willow's new online romance, there is a picture of Giles and Willow in a magnetic frame on the inside of the locker door.
Trivia: The Anointed One was killed in this episode because over a season hiatus, Andrew J. Ferchland had grown too much. Had he remained, it would have been obvious he had aged, which would have contradicted the established concept that aging is something vampires don't do. For most, if not all, of his scenes, Ferchland remains on his knees.Cubs Fan
