Anne / Dead Man's Party
Buffy has run away from Sunnydale and is living a secret life in Los Angeles. Calling herself "Anne", she's working as a waitress and denying her slayer heritage... until it forces its way back into her life. When a girl from back home needs help finding her missing boyfriend, Buffy has to choose whether or not to acknowledge her true identity. Kristen & Mike discuss whether Ken's plan can work in the long-term and compare Buffy & Lily's survival skills.
In Dead Man's Party, Buffy's friends are dying to throw her a "Welcome Home" party, but she's finding it difficult to step back into her old life. To make matters worse, Joyce brings home an evil mask that gives rise to an army of zombies that decide to crash this hootenanny. Kristen & Mike try to figure out what exactly makes Pat so easy to hate and critique the Scoobies' party manners.
