5 stars, all the way.

But I do think this episode is flawed. I never liked the Christmas flashback scene. It's out of place and takes me out of the episode, every.single.time.

Also, and this is just a personal gripe of mine: I've always found the writers' reactions to speculation on the board that Dawn might be able to bring Joyce back to life by touching her in the last scene quite irritating. It was a perfectly reasonable suggestion, given what we knew of Dawn at the time this episode aired. *huffs*

Yeah, the Christmas flashback scene doesn't sit well with me, either. Joss' commentary kinda gets to why it doesn't work for me.
