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.
Another epic episode, we’re having a bit of a run! This one only just creeps over the 25 out of 30 mark, but if we had been scoring ‘feels’, this episode would have knocked it out of the park.
Poor Cordelia, she made a wish to try and get over Xander only to realise that even in an awful alternate reality Xander and Willow are still best buds, only now they’re vampires too.
This one soars into the epic episode hall of fame with high scores for plot, script, funnies and Big Bad. The high scores are mainly thanks to Spike, back in Sunnydale and pining over a girl, sure that girl is a crazy killing machine, but each to their own.
