EPISODE 20: POWER OF EVIL (S02E08 "The Dark Age")
It's a dark and stormy night for the Buffy Boys in S02E08 "The Dark Age" when the ghost of Giles's teenage rebellion sleepwalks back into his life. As John Constantine said - the ultimate secret of magic? Any Brit could do it.
Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:
Erosion of childhood ideals: repetition and disintegration of identity
Occult, the bachanal and genderqueer - dark magic as a cipher for self-determination and roleplay
The shabby grandeur of the English ghost story - M.R. James by way of Sid Vicious
Lost Boys Weekend? Eh? Is that anything?
"This is what happens when you have school on Saturday."
