Normal Again / Entropy
In "Normal Again", while looking for the Trio's new hideout, Buffy is poisoned by a Glarghk Guhl Kashmas’nik. The poison causes her to hallucinate that Sunnydale isn't real and she's been in a mental hospital for 6 years. Or maybe she's really there? And Sunnydale is the delusion? While Buffy tries to determine what's real, the Scoobies brew her an antidote. We discuss the poison's medical effect, and what's really real.
In "Entropy", freshly wounded after being left at the alter, Anya seeks vengeance against Xander. When she can't grant her own wishes, she enlists the Scoobies to wish terrible things on his intestines. Meanwhile Spike, definitively rejected by Buffy, seeks Anya's help in licking his wounds. Kristen and Mike discuss Xander's riteous indignation, and Dawn's growth as a character.
