Telophase I sees the end of the reversal of the changes in prophase (nuclear envelope reforms, spindle disappears; D.). In contrast, prophase sees crossing over, which is unique to meiosis (A.), and metaphase I sees sister chromatids attached to microtubules from the same pole of the spindle (B.) unlike in mitosis. Anaphase I sees sister chromatids move to the same pole, again unlike mitosis (C.).
