Ask a Buffy expert
How it effects us all.....
Faith in hospital, she kisses her forehead. Something similar happened in 'Enemies', at the climax of a fight between Buffy and Faith. (Faith tells Buffy .What are you gonna do, B, kill me? You become me. You're not ready for that yet!. She then kisses Buffy on the forehead, and runs away.)
Culture references: Faith's line .Miles to go. Little Miss Muffet counting down from 7-3-0., which Buffy says is a riddle, contains two references. .Miles to go., which also appeared in 'The Prom' (written by Marti Noxon), is a quote from .Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening., a poem by American writer Robert Frost (1874-1963), who is best known for his portraits of rural life in New England.
The Little Miss Muffet reference sparked a great deal of fan debate, but apparently it referred to Dawn, as evidenced by Dawn's encounter with the strange man outside the magic shop in "Real Me"A crazy man refers to Dawn as "Curds and whey"
"Curds and whey" is a phrase from the Little Miss Muffet nursery rhyme: "Little Miss Muffet, sat on a tuffet, eating her curds and whey." This gives a hint that Faith's Little Miss Muffet reference in Graduation Day, Part 2 may have referred to Dawn, along with the counting down to 7-3-0 and Little Sister
In the fourth-season episode "This Year's Girl," Buffy and Faith are making a bed in Faith's dream, and they comment on preparing for the arrival of little sister.
Finally, in the fourth season finale "Restless," there are a number of references to the "dawn" and preparing for an arrival in Buffy's dream.
