Trivia (5)

  • In the first flashes of this episode, if you pause it, you can see David Boreanaz smiling on set, Julie Benz & David laughing together and flashbacks from the previous episodes "First Impressions" (2x3) and "In the Dark" (1x3).

  • Darla is shown dying in Jamestown, Virginia in 1609, when the Master turns her into a vampire. First off, this is historically inaccurate, because women weren't brought over from England to the colony until around 1619. Also, the attempt to excuse Darla from her inability to use a British accent by making her "American" is inaccurate because settlers did not start developing the "American" accent until the later 1700s.

  • When Darla cuts Angelus' throat, the cut is first shown mid-way down his throat. In the next shot, the cut is much higher, almost obscured by Angelus' chin. The shots with the higher cut also have a much lighter, almost invisible, scratch on his left eyebrow compared to the fairly prominent one of moments before.

  • Holland's tie is off-center as he steps out of Lindsey's office, but it jumps to center instantaneously when the camera cuts to a new shot.

  • When Cordelia tells Angel it's 1 p.m., the clock on the desk reads 6:45.
