EPISODE 22: WHAT SHOULD I DO (S02E10: " What's My Line, Part Two")
The Buffy Boys are seeing double this week - four guns! It's S02E10 "What's My Line, Part Two". The Boys wade through the mire of problematic racial stereotypes and knotted gender politics to recognise the gem that is Kendra (No Last Name). This week she was our favourite Slayer. She was our only Slayer.
Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:
Kendra as the anti-Buffy cipher for post-colonial and counter-intellectual tension
An excessive amount of phallic objects and exaggerated penetrations
Racism, black identity and problematic use and exploration of the 'tragic mulatta' literary stereotype
The subaltern speaks: reclaiming the matriarchal power of African heritage through the Slayer line
Angel/Spike slash fiction fodder galore - 'bad daddy' indeed
"There are forty-three churches in Sunnydale? That seems a little excessive"
