Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 7, Episode 21: End of Days
Written by Jane Espenson and Douglas Petrie; Directed by Marita Grabiak
In this episode, Buffy finds a magic scythe that will help her defeat the undefeatable Caleb. (And Willow actually utters the line “So it’s true, scythe matters”. This, I suppose, is what passes for comedy in a show that was at one point quite funny.) Also, the First suddenly decides it wants to become corporeal (why???) and merges itself with Caleb to create a super-Caleb… whom Buffy still seems to find easier to defeat than the normal one. And Angel shows up with yet another surprise magical artefact that has never been mentioned before but will apparently aid Buffy in the final fight. Convenient.
Overall rating: 3/10.
Next time: Chosen. Thank god, finally!
