He's got a secret plan that involves the Slayer, Spike, and a refurbished bomb shelter full of vampire-wannabees. Kristen & Mike welcome guest host Taryn to the stacks and the three of them discuss Billy's illness and compare his moral compass to Buffy's.
In The Dark Age, Buffy fans are finally introduced Giles' edgy alter ego... Ripper! When one of Rupert's adolescent cohorts is found dead at the high school, the stuffy librarian loses his cool. The demonically possessed intruder will put a strain on his relationship with Jenny and bring back a beloved villain - Ethan Rayne.
