Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: The Mayor completes his plan to ascend and become a full demon (almost every demon seen on the show is actually some flavor of low-powered half-demon or another). This also removes the immortality that he had benefited from previously, which leads to the Reality: [[spoiler: The heroes, knowing how big and strong he will become, bait him into a trap where they have laid a considerable amount of high explosives to blow him to giblets.]]

* FridgeBrilliance: The students hold the higher ground when the vampires attack, and there are walls on the sides of the stairs, thus trapping the vampires between students with flaming arrows and the second group where Angel, Wesley and Percy are in.



* OutOfOrder: The season finale was due to air May 25, but was delayed by the network because of the attack on the school. The decision came about as a result of [[TooSoon the recent shootings at high schools]] at the time. The episode "Earshot" was also delayed for this reason (though for a much longer period of time).
** Joss' verdict at the time was, "Bootleg the puppy."



* PutOnABus: This episode is the last in which David Boreanaz and Charisma Carpenter are series regulars, and marks the final appearance of Cordelia and Wesley. The trio will make their triumphant return to the Buffyverse that following season on the spin-off show, ''Angel''. However, Angel will continue to appear at least once per season (either in person or in flashbacks), with the exclusion of Season Six. (Looks like you're stuck with him, Xander.)

Added DiffLines:

* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: Angel leaves Sunnydale (along with Cordelia, we later learn), the Scoobies graduate high school, and the high school is destroyed. It's pretty safe to say this episode is meant to have a chapter-ending feel to it.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: None of the Scoobies are particularly pleased to discover that Angel fed off of Buffy to cure his poison, despite the fact that Buffy ''forced'' him to do so. Xander is the most vocal
-->'''Xander''': That's good to know. That when the chips are down and things look grim, you'll feed off the girl you love to save your own ass!

* SeasonFinale: The end of season three, and in many ways the status quo of the first three years.



* SeriesFauxnale

to:

* SeriesFauxnaleSeriesFauxnale: Like the other finales, there was no guarantee of a renewal when it was written. Our heroes defeat a giant monster and graduate high school (the setting of the last three years) all on the same day, then walk off triumphantly into the night.

* DefensiveFeintTrap / DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Buffy grabs the Demon Mayor's attention, and holds up Faith's knife. She taunts him about stabbing Faith with it, then hightails it back into the school, with the enraged Olvikan in pursuit.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything / KissOfTheVampire: The scene of Buffy forcing Angel to drink her blood has an overt sexual vibe. There's a lot of thrusting going on, Buffy and Angel fall to the floor, Angel's making sounds of enormous ecstasy. While he's lying on top of her, she grabs a metal object for support, and it just crumples. She also wraps her legs around him, then spasms [[DestructoNookie kicking a table in half]].
