Trivia

  • On Buffy, Anthony Head portrayed the regular character "Rupert Giles". On Heroes, Anthony Head narrated many of the Heroes Unmasked episodes.
  • According to Jeph Loeb on the cast/crew commentary for Unexpected, that episode used the same graveyard often used in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, especially in Season One.
  • In the Buffy episode The Wish, Cordelia makes a wish that creates an alternate reality. When Buffy is first seen, in said reality, she has a scar on her lip, despite her superhuman ability to regenerate. In the same way Peter Petrelli had a scar on his face in the "exposed future" and "explosion future", despite his ability to heal.
  • The Season 6 Buffy episode Tabula Rasa shares the same name as the Volume 5 episode Tabula Rasa. Both episodes show people who have lost their memories--Sylar from Heroes and "The Scooby Gang" from Buffy.
  • Another Season 6 episode of Buffy, Villains, shares the name with a Heroes episode Villains. Both depict a major character's fall to the dark side (Willow from Buffy and Gabriel Gray from Heroes) after the death of an innocent (Tara Maclay and Brian Davis, respectively), and claiming more victims, killing them in a horrific way (flaying alive and cutting skulls open).
  • In another sixth season episode of Buffy a warlock named Rack is able to use a dark magic energy which looks a lot like Ando Masahashi's ability. Later, Willow uses the same energy to slay a demon--the same way Ando does it in a possible future to kill Hiro Nakamura.
