I Was Made To Love You / The Body
In "I Was Made to Love You", Buffy reels from her recent imprisonment at the hands of Spike. Meanwhile, another petite ultra-strong girl arrives in Sunnydale looking for her boyfriend, Warren. The gang immediately draws the only conclusion one can from a pretty, socially awkward girl with super strength - robot. As Buffy tracks down the elusive boyfriend/manufacturer, April accesses her "combat mode" file. Megan from Chaotic Neutral Adventures joins us to discuss the gang's immediate prognosis of "robot", what metaphor the writers are trying to make here, and April's yucky yucky programming.
"The Body" easily ranks among the saddest hours of television history. After Buffy finds her mother's lifeless body, the entire gang must go through the excruciating process of mourning and caring for the deceased. Our favorite characters must all mourn in their own way - from shock, to anger, to confusion, and denial. We discuss the last of a score, the ultra-realistic cinematography, and the purpose of the final vamp battle.
