Episode Guide
Prophecy Girl


More blood please, we're British: Alyson Hannigan claimed in a magazine interview that she filmed a much stronger version of the scene where Willow and Cordelia discover the bodies of Kevin and his friends.

"We did a tame version for America and a bloodier version that we thought we could get away with in Europe. We poured blood everywhere." Even so, the episode was the first to receive a TV14 rating in America for its graphic content.

Stoned: In a scene scripted but never filmed, it rains stones on Sunnydale High School after Buffy rejects Xander.

Up the Creek: Having filmed all twelve episodes of season one before any were transmitted, the Buffy cast and crew had no idea how popular the show would turn out to be, or if they would be called back to film more episodes.

Tony Head even returned to the UK to play magician Adam Klaus in the BBC series Jonathan Creek. Luckily, the producers released him so that he could continue as Giles. The role of Klaus was subsequently recast after Tony's single appearance in the first episode.

Oops: How does everyone seem to know where Angel lives all of a sudden? Giles even has his phone number. When Buffy drowns, she falls into the pool with her hair tied in a ponytail and her arms under her. When she is discovered by Angel and Xander, her arms are by her sides and her hair is loose. In the scene where Willow and Ms. Calendar get into Cordy's car, Charisma Carpenter's mouth doesn't move when she's talking at some points.

The music of pain: Xander wallows in Country and Western misery - Patsy Cline's I ''Fall to Pieces'' in particular. Other music to listen out for is ''Inconsolable'' by Jonatha Brooke & the Story.
