Can you believe we're already at the end of season two? Neither can we!
The girls talk about this amazing episode, and how it's the culmination and payoff for everything we've been building towards season two. We've got some great character development for the Scoobies, some more 'what not to do as a parent' moments with Joyce and music chats galore.
The girls dance around 'that scene' at the end, for a while, but finally get into a discussion about how fantastic Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz are in it.
Season two may be done, but we're powering on! See you for season three!
We can hardly believe we're already at the season 2 finale!
Full of flashbacks, 'Becoming Pt. 1' is all about learning about how Angel became the vampire we knew and loved. Amanda & Andrea also note how it highlights the difference between Angel and Angelus.
There's a lot of set up in this first part of the two part finale, Kendra makes her reappearance, and there's some serious tension arising between the Scoobies. We're also introduced to Whistler, Andrea's favourite momentary character, imparting all kinds of wisdom, and through him, Amanda gets her first view of a 'good' demon.
Amanda and Andrea welcome back Tom from Toronto, (live and in person this time) for their discussion about the episode with the weirdest placement in the whole season.
Tom brings the girls Swedish fish, and a eulogy for the episode. Andrea goes off on a Hallmark movie tangent and Amanda explains how she kinda liked the episode....despite it's rampant misogyny.
Also, one of Andrea's fun facts brings an interesting musical revelation for Amanda, and the girls talk fun fan emails!
Not only is it time for one of the most beautiful episodes of Buffy, with strong emotional character work from the cast, it's ALSO finally our episode with Peter Dunn!
Andrea's so excited to have two newbies to watch and podcast one of best written, in her opinion, episodes of the season! Having both Amanda and Peter unspoiled leads to an super-sized episode with lots of speculation about the future for the Scoobies.
There's also a new theme mix, a song for Tiny Fences by Peter and he gets the girls a bit teary with his lovely words of support! It's a good one folks! Enjoy!
