Ladies, gentlemen, spiny-headed looking creatures, welcome to SlayerFest ‘98!
— Mr Trick

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."
