ReWatchable Episode #241: 'Buffy' Episode 7x07, 'Angel' 4x07 - The Baby Was in the Bed
Join ReWatchable as we discuss Buffy 7×07, “Conversations With Dead People,” and Angel 4×07, “Apocalypse, Nowish.”
Superfans: Karen and Natalie Newbies: Ariana and Kristen
Fun Facts: Kristen rewatched Arrow season 2 this past week and loved the nostalgia. Natalie posted pics of a very cute puppy and a very scary spider. They are not getting the same level of love. Also, there’s a handcrafted album of dog selfies at her residence that we all want to see. Ariana needed to discuss that Cordy/Angel conversation from last week’s ep. Karen went on a Harry Potter bar crawl last night and it was everything.
Buffy season 7, episode 7, “Conversations With Dead People”: -Synopsis -This episode ranks high for both Karen and Natalie, even if Nat can’t say exactly how high. -Four different writers wrote this episode. -Jane Espenson wrote Dawn’s parts. -Drew Goddard wrote for the Trio. -Joss wrote the Buffy scenes. -Marti Noxon wrote for Willow. -Fun Fact! Amber Benson was supposed to return as Tara for the Willow scenes, but she wanted the pure goodness of Tara to remain untarnished. -We wish we could keep Holden, but alas, soulless vampires must be dusted. -Buffy has an inferiority complex about her superiority complex. -Spike isn’t evil. He just can’t be. We’re putting our money on him being possessed by whatever evil thing haunted the others in this episode. -Dawn was badass in this episode. -“Buffy will not choose you. She will be against you.” -Why wasn’t Andrew even the slightest bit alarmed by Warren’s presence?!?! -We are so mourning Jonathan. -Willow had us all emotional. -Favorite Scenes -Favorite Lines
Angel season 4, episode 7, “Apocalypse, Nowish”: -Synopsis -Angel is avoiding Cordy to delay his rejection as long as possible. :( -Cordy can’t be real Cordy. She has to be a pod person. Or she’s like Crazy Spike. -Lilah so thought she was getting the power back by dressing up as Fred…but then Wesley stole her thunder with just a few simple words. -Cordy can’t “be with Angel” because she was a higher being and she saw everything Angel ever did as Angelus and felt all the hurt he inflicted on people. -WORST. PLOT. DEVICE. EVER. -Plus it makes no sense that she can remember everything that Angelus ever did, but can’t remember how she was returned to the land of the living. So obviously a plot device. -Cordy and Connor have sex. He’s losing his virginity to a very maternal figure and it’s creepy and wrong and we just can’t. -Cordy’s visions are worsening. -BAM! The Beast has arrived and we have theories about why he left Cordy and Connor alive. -Gunn sees the bigger picture. Literally. -We miss Wes and Gunn’s friendship. -Angel sees Cordy and Connor’s sex. UGH. -Favorite Scenes -Favorite Lines
Listener Feedback: -The apologies for Angel4×07 are coming from more than just the Superfans. -TWO, count ’em, two tweets came in singing all kinds of hatred for “Him.”
