Buffy is a hero, but she knows that if she lost any of her friends, then she’d lose herself as well.
This is a ‘Buffy in peril’ episode and I love it so much! Sometimes Buffy is a self-righteous, arrogant bitcah, but when she is in genuine peril I love her. Being the Slayer makes her so much more than normal, but it’s when she’s normal that she is her most heroic.
Badass Buffy is back. She tears through evil Ken’s operations like a whirlwind. Once she puts her mind to it, it really doesn’t take her long to figure everything out.
