Archaeologists unwittingly uncover exactly what Angelus needs to prove he is the Biggest Baddest of all—by sucking the entire world into Hell. Although a chance discovery leads to the recovery of Jenny Calendar’s translated Ritual of Restoration, Willow isn’t sure she can restore Angel’s soul in time. Buffy must make her move—and kill Angel, if necessary, to save the world. Meanwhile, we learn more about how Angel became a vampire and the events that brought him to Sunnydale and Buffy’s life.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Angel’s journey from villain to hero to villain again
  • Surely Willow’s newfound love of black magic is safe
  • Say what you will about Xander: he’s never afraid to be the biggest jerk
  • Always have a spare sword, duh.
  • Kendra’s back, yay—oh. Oh my. Never mind

September 9, 2021

Sunnydale’s swim team—you know, the swim team we’ve heard about all the time—is so close to winning state championships! Then Buffy has to go and dress slutty and tempt one of its members into raping her, naughty Buffy, resulting in a severe case of “broken nose.” Oh, and the rest of the swim team keeps turning into fish monsters. Bummer. Don’t worry though: speedo-clad Xander is on the case!

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Xander … doesn’t suck in this episode?
  • So much unnecessary dark stuff happening
  • Stephanie is very thirsty for all the cute boys and Kara doesn’t know how to deal
  • Cordelia has one of the funniest and most heartwarming scenes of the season
  • Why so little Oz???

Some supernatural force at Sunnydale High is forcing people to re-enact a deadly confrontation between a student and teacher from 1955. Giles is convinced this force is the spirit of dear departed Jenny Calendar. Buffy and the rest of the Scoobies aren’t convinced. Will they be able to put these troubled spirits to rest before any more lives are lost?

Hear us discuss…

  • How this episode deals so well with grief
  • Our first example of some group magic!
  • Steph has finally realized Angel and Dru are DOING IT
  • How many people in Sunnydale are in on the secret of the Hellmouth?
  • Spike should no longer be underestimated
