EPISODE 18: NIGHT OF TRANSFORMATION (S02E06 "Halloween")

 
 
Boys are so fragile.
— Willow Rosenberg

It's the most wonderful fright of the year in S02E06 "Halloween". The Buffy Boys talk duality, gender play, and thirsty wigs when a cursed costume shop comes to sleepy ol' Sunnydale. But does Giles still hold a black flame candle for its enigmatic owner, Ethan? 

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Integration and evolving identities through the lens of feminine expression

  • Ambiguously murdered (?) children

  • Queer joy: living as a minority is an act of defiance

  • Tropes of 'secretly gay' men

  • The danger of being a a hardcore girl who just wears lingerie and some form of animal ears

  • "You may be hot stuff when it comes to demonology or whatever. But when it comes to dating, I'm the Slayer."
