The saddest part is that Jonathan didn’t plan to take anyone else’s life,-only his own. The moment Buffy bursts in he must think ‘wow, someone cares enough to stop me’, then his face falls as he realises that Buffy’s only there to protect everyone else.



Without a doubt this is an epic episode. This is definitely one of those episodes that we pick off the shelf to re-watch again and again. It’s great to see Vampire Willow, and this episode is another key step in Willow’s character progression. We get a chance to have a break from the big heavy emotional plot lines, and play around with some normal coming of age stuff.
