An odd episode. From beginning to end a lot happens, but nothing changes. It’s all a bit pointless, although they do save children.
Enter Gunn, unwilling at first, and certainly uncooperative in this episode, but a great addition to the team (or he will be one day). The episode mainly lost points on Big Bad because apart from a few run of the mill vampires and a sleazy photographer there wasn’t a lot to write home about.
The gang settle in for movie night, too wired to sleep after they did a spell to augment Buffy’s Slayer strength, yet as soon as the movie starts they’re all out like a light. Then, we enter their dreams starting with Willow…
The Scoobies combine their spirits within Buffy’s body proving once and for all that ALL of them have a place on the team. Willow the spirit, Xander the heart, Giles mind and Buffy the hand.
Adam couldn’t have known that Spike was the perfect weapon to use against Buffy, but it just so happened that Spike provided the inspiration and the means to separate the Scoobies.
