Superfans: Karen and Natalie
Newbies: Kristen and Mitch

Fun Facts:

Mitch watched 2 I Know What You Did Last Summers and enjoyed seeing SMG in something non-Buffy. Karen has been watching all sorts of old movies, but particularly Sidney Poitier’s back catalog. Kristen is thoroughly charmed by a red carpet picture of Kristen Bell and David Harbour. Natalie will be in NYC for Avengers: Infinity War and Karen is now making plans to try and join her.

Buffy season 7, episode 15, “Get it Done”:
-Synopsis
-Miranda/Chloe commits suicide and Mitch’s childhood is sobbing hysterically.
-Kennedy gets a bit of a reality check when she sees what happened.
-Spike’s jacket is from Principal Wood’s mother, AKA a former slayer and Principal Wood makes a comment about it that is a really nice throwback.
-Kristen doesn’t think Spike has put two and two together yet, but it’s only a matter of time and enough heavy handed hints.
-D’Hoffryn is hunting Anya.
-Buffy makes a vicious speech to the entire group and it seemed slightly out of character, honestly.
-Karen defends Buffy’s hopeless attempt to pump up the troops because she’s worn down and maybe just lost her filter in those moments.
-Enter the emergency kit with an “impossible to open” lock.
-So much Slayer lore talk!
-Where in the world is Watcher Rupert Giles? (sung to the Where in the World is Carmen San Diego theme song)
-Willow spooks Kennedy when she steals a bit of energy from her for the portal spell.
-Willow makes a strange joke about being the one to bring Buffy back, and it reminds us of all the complexity of the first time she brought Buffy back.
-More Slayer lore talk…especially about the origins of the first slayer.

Buffy season 7, episode 16, “Storyteller”:
-Synopsis
-First we get Natalie’s general thoughts about this episode
-Was this episode too light-hearted about some truly dark happenings? (AKA exploding student?!)
-Karen loves the Andrew-ness of this episode.
-Andrew has a very active imagination and we enjoyed the dancing in the field.
-We debate the integrity of Andrew. Where do his allegiances truly lie now?
-We feel like the sole remaining Trio member has a greater purpose.
-In the end, Andrew admits to himself and Buffy that he did some truly evil things and we aren’t sure how we feel about it.
-Xander and Anya have sex. Wait, what?
-Is this closure for them or just another development?
-Spike vs. Principal Wood: Who should we cheer for? Will there be an ultimate confrontation?
-Defending Spike: the Rewatchable story. Lol.
-We discuss the joking manner in which Andrew’s sexuality is addressed.

Listener Feedback:
-It’s never easy to pace yourself when you just want to binge-watch.
How I Met Your Mother would be a really fun round of Rewatchable.
-Not nearly 2019, but May of 2018 will see us finishing Buffy and Angel
-A viewer proposes another place to see David Boreanaz play evil.

Mitch’s Musings/Kristen’s Kontemplations:
Angel season 4, episode 13, “Salvage”
