Buffy Boys

Jul 16, 2019

The Buffy Boys are watching through gritted fingers as Angelus's campaign of psychological terror reaches a tragic, though beautifully sketched, crescendo. The rose petals. The champagne. The only floppy disk you ever cared about.

Our hearts are literally beating. It's S02E17 "Passion".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • The death of Jenny Calendar - 'fridging' moment or elegy for a fully realised woman
  • Changing the Locks: Buffy's lived representation of male violence and female resilience in a super-powered setting
  • Flaming baseball bats!
  • Recursive perversion and the souring soul of Angel's abusive obsession
  • The hidden potency of garlic in the Buffyverse
  • "I actually had to talk my grandmother into switching cars with me last night ."
