Buffy Boys

Jul 15, 2020

Taking a running start to deploy Adam's master plan (?) Spike does what he does best - emotionally manipulating the Scoobies into ruining their own day. Giles gets drunk. Angel and Riley fight. The Buffy Boys are on Team Miss Kitty Fantastico in S04E20 "The Yoko Factor".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Regression before progression - pushing the Scoobies to the limit to demonstrate their unity
  • The Call is Coming...From Inside The House:  consumerist masculinity and Xander's abortive stint as a phone sex operator
  • Missing the Forrest for the Trees and the death of the Initiative's conflict counterpoint character
  • "You order me out of your city and then you come here and start pounding on my boyfriend?"
