Becoming parts one and two

November 1st, 2017

 

The Watchers gathered for “Becoming” the two-part finale to Buffy Season 2. Liam becomes Angel, Buffy becomes strong enough to kill Angel, Spike becomes friends with Joyce, Kendra becomes dead, Dru becomes a hypnotist, Xander becomes less trustworthy (though we all agree we would be friends with Xander if we knew him). Also, we universally don’t like Whistler and universally love Spike.

Go Fish, Season 2, Ep 20

October 24th, 2017

 

The Watchers gathered for Go Fish and weren’t really happy about it. Wentworth  Miller is the bright, shining star emerging from the sewers of this episode (at least until he dives into them). We love you Wentworth! There’s a Jonathan sighting, we discuss bicep curls, and CW: casual misogyny and sexual assault.

I Only Have Eyes for You - Season 2, ep 18

October 17th, 2017

 

Are the stars out tonight
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
I only have eyes for you dear
Sha bop sha bop
- The Flamingos, 1959

The Watchers gathered for I Only Have Eyes for You. A pair of ghosts are haunting Sunnydale high, reliving over and over again the tragic end to their love story. The fact that it was a female teacher and a male student is troubling, and, in fact, there’s several troubling aspects to this episode.  Ultimately, it’s sweet and sad and if it doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, you might be a vampire.

Passion - Season 2, Ep 17

October 10th, 2017

The Watchers gathered for Passion – where Angelus lets his creep flag fly high and free. Angel is a busy man, interfering with Dru and Spike, sneaking into Buffy’s bedroom, sneaking into Willow’s bedroom, sneaking into… well, you get the idea. We talk about whether or not Jenny even needed to be a Roma, Anthony Stewart Head’s fantastic acting as grief-stricken Giles barely holding on to Ripper, and whether that voice-over affectation works. Also, OMG THAT PUPPY WAS SO CUTE!

Phases - Season 2, Ep 15

September 26th, 2017

The Watchers gathered for Phases. There’s a lot more going on here than a werewolf story. Its age is showing a little bit in Larry’s storyline – it was treated as a joke, but was still a hugely significant moment. We also discover where you can buy iron manacles online, discuss the hazards of tiny backpacks, LARP, and cute girl backpacks v practical backpacks. Also, bunny facts.

Innocence - Season 2, 1p 14

September 19th, 2017

 

The Watchers gathered for Innocence, the introduction of Angelus, the outing of Jenny, Angelus’s brutal verbal destruction of Buffy, his introduction to his ‘family’ of Dru and Spike, Dru’s rockin fashion sense, a serious lack of prophetic wordplay, and Oz giving us all feels.

Innocence is one of the most important episodes to the lore and overall arc of season 2, and even the series and the Angel spinoff.
