Conversations with Dead People / Sleeper
In "Conversations with Dead People", the Scooby gals are each visited by strangely chatty corpses. When Buffy's slated foe turns out to be a former classmate, patroling turns into a therapy session. Willow is visited by an intermediary with a message from Tara. And Dawn saves her mother's spirit from a violent demon... or so she thinks. Kristen and Mike discuss the decision to reintroduce Cassie, and Buffy's decision to open up to Holden.
In "Sleeper", reeling from Holden's news that Spike is feeding again, Buffy enlists the Scoobies to find hard evidence. When spying on him doesn't work, Buffy confronts him outright. And while he's adamant that he'd remember the taste of human blood, Spike decides to look for evidence of his own. When his memories lead them to a basement full of dead bodies, that's all the proof they need. We discuss reasons to not let a random dude push you into a dark alley, Spike's sleeping habits, and the duration of Dawn's mistrust.
