Buffy Boys

Jul 23, 2019

Buffy's just plain worn out y'all. Weakened emotionally and physically by her struggle with Angelus as well as a nasty flu she's laid up in Sunnydale General. As the fever rages she'll have to confront her childhood fear of hospitals (for very good reason it turns out) as well as an invisible, murderous creep (eye)stalking the children's wing.

The Buffy Boys are leaving balloons, chocolates, and non-committal 'Get Well Soon!' cards in S02E18 "Killed by Death".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • The Slayer versus Death - the cautionary value of fairy tales in a world with real monsters
  • Paranoia and pacing: the nightmarish nature of inevitable threat
  • Compassionate children, oblivious adults, and the horror in steam pipe basement
  • "Tact is just not saying true stuff, I'll pass."
