Same Time, Same Place / Help
In "Same Time Same Place", Willow returns to Sunnydale, but can't find her friends. Or the Scoobies are worried when Willow doesn't arrive in Sunnydale. Even though they're at the same place at the same time (see what I did there?), they can't see each other. But when everyone ends up investigating the same murder, the reason becomes more clear. Kristen and Mike discuss what makes Gnarl so memorable, the horror of his methodology, and the bureaucracy of demon-ing.
In "Help", Buffy starts her new job as student adviser. When Cassie tells her that she's going to die on Friday, the Slayer enlists the Scoobies to prevent the prophecy. Is it the drunken dad? The friend-zoned boy? Or the greedy demon-worshiping cult? Tricky. Kristen and Mike examine possible color symbolism this season, and Spike's redeeming moment!
PLUS! Did the Stackers want an eighth season?
