Buffy struggles to deal with her mom Joyce’s newfound interest in spending time with her. Balancing that with her schoolwork, her friends, and her regular vampire-slaying duties is a challenge. However, when Joyce becomes hypnotized by a childlike demon that craves motherly care, Buffy experiences a new kind of sibling rivalry – except in Buffy’s case, her “sibling” is actually a monster!
- Buffy mentions the leather jacket that Angel gave her on episode "Teacher's Pet."
- Xander tells Buffy to not burn down Sunnydale High referring the time she burned Hemery High School's gym, as mentioned in "Welcome to the Hellmouth."
- Joyce is affected by a manipulative demon that mimics children, similarly to episode "Gingerbread."
