Blood Ties / Crush
In "Blood Ties", Buffy and Giles share Dawn's mystical origin with the other Scoobies. Burdened with this information, the gang's awkward behavior drives Dawn to snoop around the Magic Shop, where she reads about "The Key" in Giles' journal. On a mission to find out more about what she is and where she comes from, Dawn runs away from home and ends up at Sunnydale Memorial with Ben/Glory. Kristen and Mike discuss the Ben/Glory revelation, and Buffy's mishandling of Dawn's "secret identity".
In "Crush", when a train arrives at Sunnydale Station packed with vampire victims, Spike's sure he knows which vamps are at fault. But soon his stakeout resembles a poorly planned date. After the Slayer shoots him down, a forlorn Spike finds comfort in an old flame - Drusilla. Will Spike actually follow through with their plan to kill the Slayer? (Hint: We have 2 more seasons after this) Kristen and Mike discuss Spike's misguided judgment when it comes to love, and why you should always opt for Bachelor Shackles over rope.
PLUS: We explore Raven's question: Do you suspect that there is some kind of connection between Ben and Glory?
