Join us as we discuss Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 6, episodes 1 and 2, “Bargaining Part 1” and “Bargaining Part 2.”
Superfans: Karen and Maj
Newbies: Kristen and Ariana
Ariana has caught whatever bug Brittany and Natalie had last week, and she is totally blaming them for her illness. Maj is still into photography, and she sent Karen a picture of some deer which is totally cute. Kristen recently got an ARC for a new book where the author, Andrea Thome, takes the pictures for her own covers and Kristen is really amazed by that process (You can see the stunning photos/covers here.). Karen had an awesome dream-mare where she got to hang out with Eminem and the Ninja Turtles, but they they killed Donatello. How rude!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 6, episodes 1 and 2, “Bargaining Part 1” and “Bargaining Part 2”:
-Willow and her telepathy is a little creepy, no?
-We weren’t all convinced that was the Buffybot, but we knew it wasn’t Buffy.
-So, apparently Giles, and Anthony Head are not in the opening credits
-How scarred would we be if Giles was gone permanently? Very.
-We would totally watch a show called “My Teen Moms.”
-Willow is doing her best for Dawn, even if it isn’t the healthiest way to raise a teenager.
-The Buffybot is still around, and they are all dealing with how she isn’t Buffy in different ways.
-Spike has taken Dawn under his wing, and is doing his best to protect her.
-We continue to be amazed at all the emotions that Spike is capable of.
-And now we dive into the Willow of it all.
-Willow knows that Giles, Spike, and/or Dawn would probably try to stop her from resurrecting Buffy, so she doesn’t tell them.
-No one stops her, maybe because they are afraid of her?
-Willow, in her grief, believes that since she can bring Buffy back, she should.
-This is definitely not true.
-We all agree that if they would have dug up Buffy and looked her in the eye (or eyeholes),
-Poor Buffy wakes up in her coffin, and we are curious as to how she will deal with that reality with the group.
-Will she yell at them for making her dig herself out of her own grave?
-“Is this hell?”
-Where has Buffy been this whole time?
-We really appreciate that Dawn is the one to talk Buffy off the ledge.
