Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 7, Episode 12: Potential


Written by Rebecca Rand Kirshner; Directed by James A. Contner

This is going to be a really short review, because there’s nothing remotely entertaining going on here. The show is just treading water. Buffy spends the whole episode making lame speeches! Andrew’s being annoying again! Dawn’s getting ignored by everyone again - how Season 6 of them! And we have a turgid story about Dawn thinking she’s a Potential, only it turns out the Potential is actually someone else from her class. I guess that’s the potential “Dawn the Vampire Slayer” spin-off dead and buried.

Oh yeah, and Buffy claims the Slayer line runs through her. As I pointed out in my review of the previous episode, it doesn’t. Just saying that it does multiple times doesn’t change what’s already been established.

Overall rating: 3/10.

Next time: The Killer in Me.
