EPISODE 36: THE PARTY OF THE DEAD (S03E02 "Dead Man's Party")
Buffy's doing her best to fit back into her old routine: study, slay, sleep, repeat. But it's tough when she's kicked out of school, her friends are giving her the cold shoulder and so are the zombies her mother accidentally reanimated with a demonic Nigerian art piece.
You bring the keg, buddy - the Buffy Boy's are the dip at S03E02 "Dead Man's Party".
Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:
Zombi(e) Zeitgeist - the cultural influence of the restless reanimated from traditional Haitian folklore to its appropriation into Western science-myth
The incredible BDE (British Dad Energy) of Giles protecting Buffy
The interrupted sleep of the Slayer: vaseline-coated dreamscapes as a cryptic canvas
"Chosen Family" - queer identity as a vector for community building in supernatural stories
"Would you like me to convince you?"
