EPISODE 39: THE AGONY OF CHOICE (S03E05 “Homecoming”)
It's open season on Slayers as vampire entrepreneur Mr. Trick uses all the technological innovation he can squeeze out of a VHS tape and some pagers to set bounty-hunting baddies on "Faith" (aka Cordy) and Buffy in the iconic 'Slayer Fest '98'. The Buffy Boys cast their vote in a race to the bottom - it's S03E05 "Homecoming".
Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:
Bi by default: Deliberate versus procedural inclusion of queer storylines in videogames and interactive fiction
One of Buffy's only surviving enemies - a yeehaw, rootin' tootin' vamp
Cordelia as Buffy's prom queen Jungian shadow self from a life-which-could-have-been
The introduction of Mayor Wilkins, the ultimate Daddy Issue
"I'm not talking about the Slayer. I'm talking about Buffy. You've awakened the Prom Queen within. And that crown is going to be mine."
