Buffy Boys

Sep 16, 2020

Tara's family descend on the Magic Box straight from the set of The Crucible to rescue her from the sinful evil of her life as an independent woman, wiccan, and lesbian. It doesn't work out.

The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb for the Buffy Boys in S05E06 "Family".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Overlapping Spaces - The Magic Other as both queer outsider and ambassador
  • Dawn's human empathy and family values - learnt behaviour in fictional memories
  • The lack of recognition for Amy Adams will visit ruin upon the children and grandchildren of the Academy
  • "He called me a bad name. I think it was bad. It might've been Latin."
