Buffy Boys

Sep 11, 2019

Buffy's back in school and normality returns. Just kiddin'. Faith, a newly called Slayer, arrives in town on the run from cloven-hoofed elder vampire Kakistos and his Y2K fearing techno-minion Mr. Trick. Will new "heterosexual" love interest Scott Hope get lost in the mix?

The Buffy Boys are five-by-five in S03E03 "Faith, Hope & Trick".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Socially Acceptable Slayage - Buffy's "tightly wound" persona assimilates where Faith's emotional rough edges reject
  • Reinforcing and creating lore through in-character continuity references
  • "the Caucasian Persuasion here in the 'Dale": character, stereotypes and reinforcement in Buffy's infrequent black cast
  • Joyce's curious love of McCain's oven chips
  • "She's not playing with a full deck. She has almost no deck. She has a three."
