EPISODE 28: A PUZZLING CHARM (S02E16 "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered")

BB_Post_Template(Wide S02E16).jpg
I was on the phone all night, listening to Willow cry about you. Now, I don’t know exactly what happened, but I was left with a very strong urge to... hit you.
— Daniel "Oz" Osbourne to Alexander "Xander" Harris

It's Valentine’s Day in Sunnydale High and a love spell goes terribly wrong, with hilarious and deadly consequences! You can actually pin-point the second when Xander's heart rips in half. The Buffy Boys wade into the choppy waters of magic, obsession, and consent and emerge, thankfully, with literal rats only. It's S02E16 "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered".

  • Female agency, witchcraft, and the farce of the male gaze

  • The relative mouth feel of the Roman and Greek pantheons in the nomenclature of celestial bodies

  • "If I can't have you, no one can" - love potions as the incel's 'monkey's-paw'

  • The. Raincoat.

  • "Th-that's it! This has gotta stop. It's time for me to act like a man. And hide."
