It's the last episode before Christmas, we're clipless and Andrea sounds terrible, but we needed to talk about "Shadow"!
Joyce is in the hospital and we chat about how that affects not only Buffy and Dawn but their relationships with those around them, especially with all the secrets in this episode. There's some discussion about Buffy villains and where Glory fits into that pantheon. Also, to our chagrin,we can 't help but note that Riley has tipped into a frustratingly annoying territory.
Also, stick around to the very end to hear about something super amazing that Amanda did.
Are you ready to listen to both Amanda and Andrea have revelations about Spike? Then you've come to the right place!
It's an amazing character-driven episode that delves deep into Spike's history, and while Amanda finally 'gets' why everyone likes Spike, it's Andrea who's brain seems to have exploded the most in this episode.
This week we welcome back the oft-mentioned Vanessa to the podcast as we finally learn more about Tara!
On top of learning about Tara via her sadly one-note family, we also chat about how the Giles/Buffy relationship is stronger than ever and Spike's frustrated feelings.
