Ladyghosts of TV Past: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Where Are They Now?

I want you to get a message to Angel for me. Tell him I’m done waiting. I’m taking the fight to him. You got that? Need me to write it down for ya?

Normally, this would be the space I’d be using to insert a pithy quote from this week’s episode and then wax poetic (or something like poetic) about the adventures of Buffy and her stalwart gang.  Instead, in honor of reaching the end of season 2 ““ the two-parter “Becoming” (parts 1 and 2) ““ we’ve decided to host a liveblog rewatch of the episodes. “Becoming”(s) is a highlight in a show full of fantastic storytelling and long time fans know how important these 90 minutes are to the overall arc.

Ladyghosts of TV Past: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Episode 2.17, “Passion”

Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping… waiting…  And though unwanted, unbidden… it will stir, open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us, guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… the clarity of hatred… and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we’d be truly dead.

What rhymes with lungs?”), Willow’s streak of hidden aggression (axe!), Amy’s rat transformation spell, and Xander’s mucking around with magic, causing chaos (“Once More with Feeling”). This is also the episode that introduces the phrase “The Big Bad.” Read More Ladyghosts of TV Past: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, S2, E16, “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”
