EPISODE 35: SECRET IDENTITY (S03E01 "Anne")

 
 
You know, I just... I woke up, and I looked in the mirror, and I thought, hey, what’s with all the sin? I need to change. I’m... I’m dirty. I’m, I’m bad with the... sex and the envy and that, that loud music us kids listen to nowadays.
— "Anne"

It's been one bummer of a summer for Buffy - living as a runaway under an assumed name in LA while the Scoobies try to fill her punning protector pumps in Sunnydale. But what'll happen when vulnerable teens get snatched to a brutalist Hell dimension by a youth pastor with a penchant for unsubtle foreshadowing?

Abandon hope all ye Buffy Boys who enter S03E01 "Anne".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Helping the hopeless: existential despair as a tangible threat in dispossessed youth

  • Xander and Cordelia's death fueled passion (Cordander? Xordy?)

  • Seizing the Means of Infernal Production: Marxist themes in Buffy's aesthetics and performed politics

  • "I'm Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. And you are?"
