Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6, Episode 6: All the Way
Written by Steven S. DeKnight; Directed by David Solomon
In this episode, Dawn goes out on a date with a boy… who turns out to be a vampire! No, not the most stunningly original premise ever, but at least this episode has a decent enough sense of humour, something that will disappear all too soon. It also has a nicely choreographed fight scene, in which even Giles gets to practice some slick moves. When did he become so adept at staking?
Besides that, Dawn turns into a shoplifter in this episode, presumably because in this, the season in which everyone gets so monumentally screwed up, something has to go wrong with her life (apart from losing her mother, then her sister, then getting her sister back and discovering that she’d rather be dead, that is).
Overall rating: 6/10.
Next time: Once More, With Feeling.
