Buffy has decided to hightail it out of Sunnydale and we give thanks to Charlie Weber for his Instagram.
Willow gets her panties in a bunch with insecurities and causes poor Tara to get brain sucked. That sounds much dirtier than intended.
Spike has a new toy! Buffy goes on a last minute vision quest! Warren needs to be on a list!
Back in March, we got our fellow Pittsburgh Scoobies together to enjoy Buffy shakes, talk all things Buffy, play some games and get some face time with our listeners.
Everyone is dealing with the aftermath of Joyce's death. Some in a healthy, sexy way (Giles), others in a get everyone killed and desecrate the memory of a wonderful woman way (DAWN).
We get in touch with our emotions as we begrudgingly recap The Body.
Misrepresentations, misunderstanding, slurs and allegations! After Spike lets loose his feelings for Buffy, he receives an even chillier response from his frenemies. Also, robots need love too?
Spike has got lady troubles in the worst way. Dru wants him the way he was, but he wants to be a better man for Buffy, who doesn't want him at all. And Harmony...just wants some gosh darn respect!
Dawn finds out the truth about herself and we find out the truth about James Marsters. We all need a moment to regroup, meditate and journal about our feelings.
Quentin brings his Watcher's crew to town, trying to stay relevant.
Willow and Anya are finally ready to have it out...sort of. There's a bunch of bickering over The Magic Box, but really, they are kind of just peeing around Xander.
It's the (3rd) most anticipated moment of this podcast. Riley's departure! Excuse us while we do the dance of joy.
Joyce has a male visitor in her boudoir.
How old is too old to trick or treat? Is Glory a gay icon? Can Riley get any sadder? Why is Spike snatching panties? The answers to these questions and so many more, in this week's episode.
Ok. Everybody relax. This is a Spike heavy episode. Spike is gonna give us a history lesson. We try to keep our cool but...I mean...the subway scene!
We get an entire episode dedicated to Tara and her family, only to find out, it's really for nothing.
We take a call from a listener, meet this new blonde, and find out exactly what the deal is with Dawn.
Yeah, there's something wrong with Riley's heart and he doesn't want to get it fixed because he's all insecure about his status with Buffy. BUT, what we're really here for, is the awesome scene, where James Marsters is lit like a fantasy.
It's time for a double dose of Xander Harris. One super smooth and the other...uh...special in other ways.
