EPISODE 38: LES BELLES ET LES BÊTES (S03E04 “Beauty and the Beasts”)

 
 
And I’ll... Go lock myself in the cage...
— Oz

Something feral is loose in Sunnydale savaging affable emo teens and compassionate school counsellors alike. Is it Oz,the moon-crazed werewolf? Angel, the Hell-maddened reborn vampire? These hogs we've heard so much about?

The Buffy Boys drink the toxic masculinity Kool-Aid in S03E04 "Beauty and the Beasts".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • "Not All Monster-Men": uncovering the paper tiger of 'misandry' in Buffy fandom

  • The many uses of a sturdy library book cage

  • Two men talk about women's experience of domestic violence - a well-intentioned tightrope

  • Metaphorical sharp relief - confrontation and catharsis fighting against personal demons made real

  • "We're doing crime! You don't sneak up during crime!"
