* InadvertentEntranceCue / WalkInChimeIn: Spike hopefully asks Drusilla whether she sees what's in store for Angel. On cue, Angelus strolls in, saying, "Well, he moves to New York and tries to fulfill that Broadway dream. It's tough sledding, but one day he's working in the chorus when the big star twists her ankle..."

While researching a way to defeat the Judge, Xander and Cordelia get caught kissing in the library by a crushed Willow. Angelus terrorizes Buffy and the Gang at school, and after several realizations about what might have happened to cause it, an emotionally shattered Buffy leaves, unable to cope. Buffy has another dream in which Angel helps her realise that Jenny knows more than she's letting on. The next morning she confronts Jenny at school, who admits she is a member of the Gypsy clan that cursed Angelus with his soul so long ago.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: The Judge is hyped throughout the two-part episode as being so strong, that no weapon forged could defeat him. He is blown apart in one shot by an anti-tank missile. Guess the standards of "weapon forged" has improved in the past six hundred years.

* IdealizedSex: In Buffy's dream, showing how she has idealised their relationship.



* RewatchBonus: Uncle Enyos belief that the return of Angelus was 'arranged' is a lot more plausible knowing he's a tool of the PowersThatBe, both good and evil, in the [[Series/{{Angel}} spin-off series]], and [[spoiler:Twilight in the comic series.]]

* ProphecyTwist: "No weapon forged" can kill the Judge. But weapons these days aren't forged, they're built. Another interpretation is "no weapon forged" ''at the time''.

* NoManOfWomanBorn: The Judge states repeatedly that no weapon forged can hurt him. Unfortunately for him, weapons are no longer forged, and considerably stronger varieties have been invented since he was sealed away, like [[AuthorAppeal rocket launchers]].

Unfortunately for him, weapons are no longer forged, and considerably stronger varieties have been invented since can still tear his flesh (which is how he was sealed away, like originally dismembered) -- he just can't be killed, and can easily reassemble himself if the parts are placed back together. And in the modern world we have some much more efficient ways of disassembling people -- such as [[AuthorAppeal rocket launchers]].

Buffy home and she feels awful for putting her friends in serious danger from Angelus. Giles assures her that, although she did act irresponsibly, it is obvious that she and Angel loved each other and that he hasn't lost his trust and respect in her. Later, Buffy and her mother sit down to watch a movie. Joyce asks Buffy what she got for her birthday, and Buffy simply answers that she got older.
