Faith's back! And so is one of our favourite guests, John!
We have a lot of discussion about Faith, and how her actions are dictated by her upbringing, her feelings about Buffy, and not being the Slayer.
We also detour into how Xander and Willow seem to revert to high school versions of themselves at the mention of Faith.
Andrea can't help but note that even though Adam's the supposed big bad, he's dropped the second Faith's back in the picture. Everyone also reminisces about how much they miss the Mayor
After break from recording Amanda and Andrea are back with a long(ish) episode to discuss "Goodbye Iowa"
Be forewarned, Riley haters there's a lot of praise heaped on Marc Blucas' performance in this episode. There's also a fair amount of Andrea being frustrated with Amanda's devil's advocacy for Forrest and Adam.
"Wellll, that escalated quickly" That's how Amanda and Andrea feel about today's episode.
The ladies get into a conversation of science vs magic and skepticism vs faith and how those two 'extremes' are represented in the Scoobies and the Initiative.
We welcome back Julia to round out the 'Ethan episodes' and discover that the theme of this episode is "Poor Giles!" (we say it MANY times)
Also, it's Buffy's birthday, and for the first time in YEARS, she gets to have an actual party where nothing terrible happens to her afterwards, Giles on the other hand...
In the aftermath of Hush, Buffy and Riley try to sort out their relationship, Spike pokes at Xander and Willow's place in the Scoobies and a *another* apocalypse tries to make itself known in Sunnydale
Please note, there's definitely an awkward moment where it becomes very apparent that Andrea's mouth moves faster than her brain...
