Ok, well that was kinda weak. The only saving grace was Spike/Andrew on the bike I thought that was hilarious. I just don't see the logical leap that everyone made to turn on Buffy. I would assume that Xander and Dawn would be right next to Buffy til the end. Just having one piling on her made her more sympathatic in my eyes than in the last three seasons. It was a great character moment, but I don't know if I buy that Dawn would turn on her.

My friend did make a good point that every time Buffy leads them one of the slayerettes dies. I agree with that mostly, but when she killed Ubervampire I thought they might trust her more. I guess not.If anything it proves that the Slayerettes are wimpering pansies and not one of them should be slayer. Espically the black girl, I thought Xander should have turned in his chair and said I hope you are the next to die. It will be fun seeing Faith try to lead them, but even Faith knows she can't. Which proves my theory that demoracy doesn't work. Anyway, it looks like everyone is getting their freak next week maybe we can get some nudity?

I haven't been a Buffy watcher at all, but I am making a point to watch the last month of the show. I forgot how funny the dialogue is.

As for the nudity, you can't go wrong with any of the women on that show. With my luck, it will be Giles.

The line/references of the night was Zander talking about not having to watch Jaws 3-D and talking about his depth perception problem.

That priest guy is pretty bad-ass.

Yeah, Joss Whedon has definitely lost it. Buffy used to be one of my favorite shows. Now I only watch out of a sense of duty, to see it through.

Whedon has lost all sense of the personalities of his characters. I honestly don't enjoy the show at all, anymore.

I did enjoy the conversation between Andrew and Spike but it led to a question I have. Why does Spike eat food and Angel doesn't?

Well, Spike would probably tell you its because he and Angel are nothing alike.

I'm assuming your referring to Spike's knowledge of how to prepare a bloomin' onion, right? Did we see (have we seen) Spike eat ever? Just because he knows how to prepare a specific dish doesn't mean he eats. He easily could have picked something like that up back when he used to spend a fair amount of time watching tv in season 4.

I liked the episode. I don't think the turns came out of nowhere, as Buffy basically wanted everyone to repeat what happened last week, and everyone admitted that they didn't think it would work. I think the Dawn turn is the result of Joyce's appearance in Conversations with Dead People. "When its bad, Buffy won't choose you." Buffy wanted to speak with Faith at the Bronze instead of listening to Dawn. Dawn took that to mean that it was time to oppose Buffy, which she did by kicking her out of the house.

The only question is what did Caleb mean when he said he said a little nudge would let Buffy lead them right where he wants them. On the face it would seem that Buffy was to lead the girls back to the vineyard, and since the group vetoed that idea they should be safe for now. However, knowing Joss, I wouldn't be surprised if leaving the group Buffyless is what Caleb wanted. Between the fact that Faith took down three cops with guns just in time to have a confrontation with Buffy that led to all this, and the fact that Dawn's turn came from Joyce's vision, I wouldn't be surprised if the First hasn't manipulated the situation to separate Buffy from the group. Maybe Joyce was the First all along? Then again, if the group did circumvent Caleb's plans by kicking Buffy out, then maybe Joyce indeed represents the powers of good.

What was up with Dawn being all touchy feely with Xander? Was her old crush on him was reawakened by the eye-loss sympathy? And she had the "daddy like" look back from the varsity jacket episode.

The explanation for Anya's disappearance last week and staying away from Xander this week was weak, but a minor point overall. I still enjoy her casual blurting out of the details of her sex life. Andrew was annoying about the burrito, but at least it explained why he and Spike were out of the house. How will Spike react to the news that Buffy's been exiled? The fake out with the robed attacker in the church not being a bringer was good. The mass exodus from town continues (at least we know Clym will survive to make a spin-off), although if that's the case, who was left at the Bronze. How did Amanda get a drink in the first place? And why is Faith always dancing in a circle of guys?

I get the feeling any nudity we get next week will be male. Got to keep all the females happy with shirtless Spike and whatnot...

Spike eats food for shits and giggles, the same reason why he smokes. He doesn't NEED to, but he still does it because he can. It's actually a kind of deep and revealing look at the characters if you want to get right down to it. Angel (with his soul) is such a bland and vanilla, wholesome guy who helps kittens and old ladies, who before he was vamped was a rowdy party guy. Spike is living in his fantasy world. He's being the guy he could never be back when HE was the bland and vanilla wholesome guy who could never get the chicks to like him. Even with a soul, he still feels that need to be a rebel. If that means eating food and smoking even though they don't mean anything to him any more, so be it.

As for the episode, well let me say this:

That was a long time coming. I guess I'm the only one who was sick of everybody just lining up to follow Buffy's hair brained schemes and wacky plots. For seven seasons, Buffy has always been about "memememememe", she has a plan well-then it must be the bestest plan ever. And sometimes they worked, and sometimes they didn't, but every time, the Scoobs were there to give credit to Buffy.

I realize that it's a show, and I realize that Buffy is the main character, but I found it really refreshing that after making her out to be such a huge bitch the last 4 years, they've finally roped her in. I think Anya's tirade was especially well written, just because you're the most skilled player on the team or the luckiest person doesn't mean that you make the best leader, or that you can make all the decisions unilaterally and be right all the time.

I'm actually finally settling in to the storyline of the heros as quasi-heros. Buffy has been the main hero for almost a decade and she's lost sight of the fact that she only got to where she was because of her back-up (see Anya's episode and the episode where Wood tries to kill Spike for examples of this). Xander and Willow are tired of being kicked around, despite the fact that they've often had just as much to do with Buffy coming out on top as she has, Xander especially so, because he's become living proof that there is a chink in Buffy's armor twice now. Giles is in the interesting position of seeing that without the group dynamic Buffy can't function as a leader.

Through Season 5, the Scoobies proved that there was no I in Team. Giles and Willow were the brains, Xander was the heart and muscle and Buffy was the legs that kept them moving forward. I mean, if you look back, that's the dynamic, Buffy was always asking Giles things like "What now" or going out and doing something to actively solve their problems.

Come Season 6 however, Buffy discovered that there WAS a "Me" in team. "I Martyred Myself to save the world and all I got was this stupid life back". And that was Season 6. Buffy was yanked back down from the pinnacle of her life down to routine vampire dustings and demon huntings. She was the best, she was the top dog, she saved the world, again. Then the Scoobs brought her back, and went about business as usual. Buffy wanted more than that, she was ABOVE business as usual, but that meant that she was above everybody else too, and nobody was treating her like that. In fact, the only person that showed her any kind of special attention was Spike, and we all saw how that went. She went from hating him to loving him because he put her on that pedestal that she wanted to be on.

Xander and Willow went through the same things, to varying results. Willow was a brain without a body. She was a team player without a team. She had to find someone or something else to lead her. Debate the effectiveness of the magic story all you want, but Willow found something to lead her, unfortunately, it was the wrong thing. Xander on the other hand was in a far worse position, but funnily he handled it SO much better. Xander was the heart without a brain OR a leader. He was left alone to wallow in his insecurities as the only real "human" in the bunch. That's what broke him off from Anya, was the fear that his insecurity would finally get the best of him. However, rather than whine about it or try to replace it with something else, he just trudged ahead in the best way he knew how. Giles on the other hand had been feeling left out for years. He'd been supplanted as the brains by Willow, and now that the "team" dynamic wasn't there anymore, he was worthless, so he tucked his tail between his legs and left for someplace that would accept him.

This season, everybody is slowly coming to the realizations of what went wrong with them. Buffy is trying to hard to fit the square peg she made of herself into the circular hole of the Scooby Gang, especially now that she has other people looking up to her. Ultimately, as this episode proved, she's failed, because she's forgotten that even as a leader, she must remain flexible. Willow is perfectly comfortable playing second banana, but past experience has taught her that she should only be willing to do that for as long as it's leading her in a good direction, which Buffy is not. Xander has the most axes to grind with everybody involved, and thus, he's been the toughest fit this season. He's being asked to be the heart of the group again, when he's lost his (and his eye ). He's tried really hard to get back there this season, but he's gotten almost nothing in response, and add to that that he's BEEN where Buffy was, and he doesn't see the same change in himself as he does in her, making it even harder to trust her. Meanwhile, Giles can't be the brains anymore either, because first of all he's being asked to be the brains for too many people, and secondly because Buffy countermands his most difficult decisions (re: Spike), despite the fact that it was a decision that almost everybody else seemed willing to make. Everybody tried to smush back together into the big group dynamic now that they're faced with this unstopable evil, but unfortunately for them, it's not working out.

And now the Scoobs are trying to cram Faith into that role, because she's been the cooler head this season, it should be interesting to see how everyone else responds.

If nothing else, I see these last too seasons as an example on how costly going it alone can be, both for followers and for leaders, and the lesson learned is, even if you're in a big group it doesn't mean you're together. The first four seasons were wacky and zany because the characters were together as a cohesive unit, and if nothing else, I applaud Joss and Marti for taking a stab at trying to throw a few kinks into the mix.

*I'm looking into this WAY too deeply, I know, but this is how I'd break the seasons down at their bases. Whether it was intended as such or not is up for speculation.*

As for more episode specific matters, five things:

1) Spike and Andrew's scene was tremendous. I disagree with the assertion made a while back that Xander could do the stuff Andrew does. Andrew's too wide eyed and innocent. His making the official note of "Wild Break-up Sex" was incredibly funny, and not anything that Xander would have done. In fact, the whole note taking process was funny.

2) I'm still not sold on Caleb as the bad ass representative of the villain, and this week did little to shift my opinion one way or the other. Maybe I was expecting too much.

3) I've already addressed the Intervention Scene, but I just wanted to point out again how meaningful I found hearing all the characters let Buffy know that even though she was the Slayer didn't mean the world revolved around her. Very emotional on BOTH sides of the fence.

4) His scene with Willow brought back alot of compassion for the Xander character and his lot in life that I'd forgotten I even had.

5) Interesting note: I wonder if this break up isn't what Caleb and The First had planned all along (figuring that Buffy would make stupid mistakes and eventually get ostricized making her easy to pick off). It should be interesting...If she attempts to prove herself right and go on a one women commando mission next week (well...plus Spike and ostenibly Andrew), we'll know, I guess.

It's over!

I think the vibe that I felt from the show must have been different than most.

Buffy feels guilty for what happened to Xander. That's why she has trouble facing him and why she didn't want to be around him much in the hospital. She should have given him a hug, kiss, and an I'm sorry, though.

Anya's "You're lucky" speach didn't do it for me. How is Buffy lucky? She has a calling that pays nothing and doesn't give her any long-term life prospects (either for living or for a career). She has had tremendous responsibility thrust upon her for around 7 years or so. While I do agree that she has dabbled in self pity (watch FX for season 3 right now when she's like "Poor me, I had to kill Evil Angel"). And Buffy does need to forgive Giles. She has earned the right to lead. She didn't ask for it, it was thrust upon her.

Where does Dawn get off making Buffy leave? Buffy has worked her butt off to take care of Dawn, while Dawn has primarily wined and moaned and been a brat (although this season she has changed for the better). At least she told the Slayerette who was gloating over Buffy's ouster (Ding Dong...) to shut up.

The Slayerettes? They're too big for their britches. Had their watchers not been annihilated, they would have received some proper training, but judging from their current attitudes, would they have been receptive?

I just hope that Xander has a happy ending for the show, alive and well.

One more thought. In Season 2, they used a rocket launcher to kill The Judge. Wouldn't it make sense to at least TRY some heavy artillery against Caleb?

Anya wasn't using "Lucky" very conventionally here. She was saying that Buffy did nothing to earn her position, but that it was handed to her, whether she was capable of weilding the power of that position or not. Faith is a perfect example that sometimes, all that power in one place isn't such a good thing. Anya, and many of the others, think that Buffy is steamrollering ahead thinking that because she's the biggest baddest good guy, that she must be right.

Because Buffy wasn't playing nice with the team, and Dawn was trying to stand up with everybody else to try to knock somes sense into her. Besides, Not Joyce has already sown the seeds of miscontent between Dawn and Buffy this season.

They still have it too. Yeah, it WOULD make sense, but then the season would end kinda early, you know ? Besides, I'm still mad that they couldn't be assed to take Giles or Willow with them on their jaunt to Vineyardville, despite the fact that they probaby could have magiced Caleb's ass.

Point taken with regards to Anya's speech, but I would argue that Buffy has EARNED the leadership position by fighting skillfully and saving the world a few dozen times. Granted, she didn't earn the power, she has used it very well. Is she the Cal Ripken of Slayers yet?

And, I agree, it wouldn't be much fun if they went ahead and tried to Nuke Caleb. The episode would end much to quickly. Of course, I always thought they should observe the Frog brothers from "The Lost Boys" and have super soakers loaded with holy water for patrol purposes when they were facing "just" vampires.

I'm still in the camp leaning towards that being Joyce, but I guess we'll find out depending on Caleb's reaction to what's happened.

Given how the First screwed with Willow back when she tried the locator spell, I'm thinking that directly using magic against the First or its agents is a risky proposition at best. Caleb and the bringers are already kicking their ass. The last thing they need is Willow turning.

As far as Buffy being lucky, given that they're all going into battle together, Buffy is lucky in that she's one of the few with super strength and power. Granted, it doesn't do her well against Caleb, but all the normal humans (like Anya), are more or less cannon fodder. Spike, Faith, and Buffy all made it out of the basement only with some bruises. Everyone who died or was seriously injured lacked any special powers. Its kinda like how if a group of friends want to go to dinner, the rich friend keeps suggesting they go to a fancy restaurant that the poorer friends might not be able to afford. Anya's saying that she and the others don't want to pay that price. (Although, I do think Excalibur nailed Anya's main point on the head.)

If Faith and Wood do what it looks like they do in the promo for next week, and lets say Faith doesn't use any birth control, would their child be anything special given that s/he would be the direct descendant of two slayers? Of course, Faith would have to live for nine months (unless she has a Cordelia style pregnancy), but I'm getting waaaay ahead of myself on this.

And nice job with that analysis, Excalibur.

Darn it! They went and made me remember that I genuinely care for some of these characters. After Nicholas Brendon's touching scenes this week I felt like a ghoul using his de-eyeing(?) as an avatar. So, no more.

Th episode as a whole was really good. I'm glad they remembered to pay off the Dawn storyline from "Converstions with Dead People". We still don't know if it was Joyce or Not-Joyce, but oh well. Will that phrase Spike found eventually be the First's undoing? If so, I noticed a parallel between Buffy and Angel. On the last two episodes of both shows, the resident backup badass (Spike/Wes) uncovered what could be the secret to beating the Big Bads. Kinda nifty if it's a true parallel. Maybe I'm reading in to it too much, who knows?

I think really good things are ahead in the final three episodes (I have not read a single spoiler). Next week...APOCALYPSE NOOKIE!

On another note what are your thoughts on the use of the Michelle Branch song in the ads for the end of Buffy? (I know certain people that are probably pretty happy about it.) At first I thought it was cheesy, but then I remembered it was actually used in a prior episode, so at least it has continuity going for it.

Embarassing as it may be, I'm a big Michelle Branch fan (ever since her demo found it's way into my collection via my station). As such, I really like it, and I think it fits with the mood of the show ending. Maybe a little Teen Pop? Yeah, but that's the audience that Buffy's always tried swinging for.

It still has some deep seeded meaning for Buffy fans anyway, because that's the song that played when everybody imploded during "Tabula Rasa", so it works.

The song is fine, but I don't think it works with the graphic of Buffy walking all bad ass like with the sword. Its like they want to make the point that the next weeks will be a sentimental finale AND a kick ass battle, and I don't think you can juxtapose those thoughts nicely in a 30 second spot. Then again, this week's promo had a lot of sentimentality, so the song worked. Last week when they showed Buffy lying in the pile of glass and Caleb standing over her, I didn't think it meshed well. They need to match the song and the clips better.

Thank you! I knew it was from a big "turning point" episode, but I blanked on which one. (No pun intended, I assure you.) I loved the song in that context, but I think I'm getting a little tired of it week after week. Has this season had a big moving musical montage yet? Am I forgetting again?

I think the really great musical montage is being saved for the last five minutes to the finale where it should be. I love Joss blend of the musical montage, I maybe using Lucky Ones for my wedding. I did love the character analysis from Excaliber. I just think they are using two wrongs don't make a right. I agree Buffy wanting to attack the vineyard again is nuts. However, putting Faith in charge is suicidal. I love Faith, but she is not leadership quality. Giles should be in charge, but the slayerettes want Faith.

A Fan- If anything I hope they kill off all the slayerettes. All of them minus the tall girl are damn annoying.

I agree with the Excaliber analysis of the situation. Buffy is not a likable character right now, and the group is making a lot more sense than the "Hey, let's go back to the place where we got our asses kicked because there MIGHT be a power source of some kind there" Buffy.

I too thought about the Joyce thing being in Dawn's mind. But the way it played out, it would have almost made more sense for the vision of Joyce to have played to Buffy, saying that in the end Dawn won't choose you, instead of the other way around.

But I do disagree with #5 on Excaliber's list. If Caleb just wants to separate Buffy from the group to make her easy pickings, why didn't he just kill her at the school? He had every opportunity. I think she has to be alive, for some reason, to make this thing work for the First Evil. (at least that's the only reason I can see that he didn't just kill her and have it done)

In the church, the inscription said something about the power being hers alone to wield (badly paraphrased). Otherwise, he could've just killed everyone last week. Those who escaped just slowly walked up the stairs, and if he can whup Buffy, it stands to reason that he can beat everyone else.

Granted, the show is hilarious enough already, but it could use another male character in the house. One who's frustrated by not getting any of the surplus of Slayer tang around, and not frustrated by losing the last Hot Pocket.

Given that twice this season the First's minions beat Buffy unconscious and then left her, its clear that the First wants her alive for a reason. It probably has something to do with what the Eye of Bojoxer (or whatever that demon Giles and Anya visited in Showtime) said: that the reason the First could do this now was because of the slayer, and the presumed conclusion is that because Buffy was resurrected something has changed that is allowing this. Most likely then, Buffy needs to stay alive to maintain this condition so that the First can enact its plans.

Straight from the episode, Spike's translation of the inscription on the wall: "It is not for thee. It is for her alone to wield." I'm thinking the key word is "alone", since there are now two slayers wielding the same power.

However, Caleb may very well want to separate Buffy from the group not to make killing Buffy easier, but to make killing the slayerettes and co. easier. Now that he doesn't have to worry about not killing Buffy, what's to stop him from trapping everyone in the house and lighting it on fire, or trying to bomb it like he did the council, or any other possibility that involves mass destruction that would kill everyone in a vicinity?


EDIT -- POSSIBLE SPOILER FOR NEXT WEEK (FROM THE PROMO)




the girl that Xander is making out with in the promo has kinda dark wavy hair. I think before someone said that it was Xander and Anya, but given that Anya's been keeping her distance from Xander (as she admits in her monologue about the Turok-han), and that she has short blonde hair now, I'm thinking its not her. The face of the girl Xander is making out with is obscured, but after all the touchy feeliness this week, I think its Dawn. "daddy like" indeed.

I think before someone said that it was Xander and Anya, but given that Anya's been keeping her distance from Xander (as she admits in her monologue about the Turok-han), and that she has short blonde hair now, I'm thinking its not her. The face of the girl Xander is making out with is obscured, but after all the touchy feeliness this week, I think its Dawn. "daddy like" indeed.

    END SPOILER

Welll...Given that Dawnie seemed unaturally concerned about Xander's conditon, and that Xander was just recently dreaming about teenage pillow fights, you may be on to something. After all, Dawn has unresolved "sexual tension" issues with Xander dating back to just after she was introduced in Season Five.

Oh joy. Time for the annual Kim Bauer in peril storyline. Time to bring back Nina to show him how to properly take care of a Bauer when you take them hostage at CTU. Other than that, nothing at all stands out from this episode.
