Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 7, Episode 19: Empty Places
Written by Drew Z. Greenberg; Directed by James. A Contner
The lameness of this episode is pretty much summed up in the scene in which the entire gang stand up against Buffy and throw her out of her own house. Fine, okay, I can just about swing that, although I have a hard time believing that the original crew would go so far as to turf her out, even if her actions last week did result in the loss of Xander’s eye. What I have a really hard time buying, though, is that they would then choose Faith as their leader. Faith, who not long ago was trying to kill them all. Perhaps I could accept the Potentials siding with the cool new Slayer who smokes and lets them indulge in underage drinking, but certainly not Willow, or Giles, or even Xander at this stage. Sorry, this is just bull.
Sorry I don’t have anything more to say about this. I’m simply getting so fed up that actually writing about what I’ve just watched is becoming a chore. Nothing much happens anyway. Skip to the final scene and you wouldn’t be missing anything important.
Overall rating: 2/10.
Next time: Touched.
