Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6, Episode 18: Entropy
Written by Drew Z. Greenberg; Directed by James A. Contner
Less heavy than the episodes preceeding it, this episode is unfortunately marred by the fact that it is complete soap opera. Buffy has always placed a lot of emphasis on the relationships of its characters, but this takes the cake. Ooooh, Spike and Anya for some reason decide to have sex in the Magic Box. Ooooh, the nerds are spying on them with hidden cameras and start giggling. Ooooh, Willow coincidentally happens to hack into their feed (using QuickTime, by the looks of it!) at the very time it’s happening, and Xander and Buffy both happen to be in the room at the same time and both happen to see their respective exes getting in on. Ooooh, Xander takes a sharp weapon and attacks Spike. Ooooh, Buffy’s shameful secret is revealed to all. Ooooh, I think I’m going to be sick.
Overall rating: 4/10.
Next time: Seeing Red.
