Episode Quotes

Buffy: Is everyone okay? Did Willow...
Anya: Got a power boost and took off.
Xander: Anya's... Anya was saying she knows where Willow is.
Buffy: A spell?
Xander: Not exactly. Seems Anya got her vengeance on again.
Buffy: [shocked] Oh.
Xander: So, Willow's all wrathy. Why don't you go to her? Isn't that your gig?
Anya: Normally I'd have to. But she doesn't want me.
Buffy: She wants to do it herself.
Anya: Yeah.
Buffy: Look Anya, we don't have much time. Which side of this are you on?

Xander: If you know where she is, you can help us.
Anya: [stands up and looks determined] I'll help. But, I'm helping Willow.
Warren Meers: Hey, that's a cute trick. You should teach me that.

Willow Rosenberg: You're going to die tonight, Warren.
Warren Meers: [nervous] Why? What'd I ever do to you?
Willow Rosenberg: That shooting spree this morning?
Warren Meers: [remembers] Oh... that. It was an accident, you know? You have to belive me. It really was an accident.
Willow Rosenberg: Oh? So you're saying that instead of killing my best friend, Buffy, you happened to kill my girlfriend, Tara.
Warren Meers: It... it wasn't personal.
Willow Rosenberg: Well, this is!
Andrew Wells: I miss Ferris-Matthew. Broadway-Matthew, I find him cold.


  • Goof (revealing mistake): When Willow is walking through the forest tracking Warren, ropes can be seen pulling the trees back as she walks by.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): In the shots of vines ensnaring Warren's legs, you can see a leaf-strewn tarp shifting around underfoot in place of an actual forest floor.
  • Goof (continuity error): The blood spatters on Willow's shirt change thickness and pattern throughout the entire episode.


  • Although "Seeing Red" is generally believed to have been Amber Benson's last episode of BtVS, she appears briefly in this episode, playing the corpse of Tara. When filming was done, Joss Whedon and the cast presented Benson with a tombstone-shaped cake to commemorate her final scene.
  • When Willow says "Bored now" before exacting her revenge, she is making a reference to the alternative universe vampire Willow, who used this as her catchphrase (possibly hinting at the new Willow losing her conscience and being more like the vampire alter-ego).
