Gone / Doublemeat Palace
In "Gone", Buffy is overwhelmed with raising a teenager, furnishing Willow's recovery, and managing her own indiscretions with Spike. After she fails to pass muster with Child Services, Buffy chops off the golden locks Spike loves so much. A chance run-in with the Trio outside the hair salon triggers them to shoot her with their new invisibility ray. While the Scoobies investigate how to re-visible her, Buffy enjoys a brief freedom from consequences. We discuss Dawn's level 10 whining, and what we'd do with the power of invisibility.
Buffy solves her income dilemma with a job at the "Doublemeat Palace". High turnover. Employees disappearing. The smell. The secret ingredient. Manny. Is this a typical fast food job or is something nefarious afoot? When Buffy finds a finger in the meat grinder, she enlists the Scoobies to investigate what's really in the Doublemeat Medley. Meanwhile, Amy doses Willow with unwanted magic. Kristen and Mike discuss the adversities of working as a corporate cog, and suggest ways to improve Wig Lady's costume.
