Some thoughts on episodes I watched and didn’t write about, or forgot to watch because I’m a terrible blogger.
WITCH BTVS S1E3
Questions! What happens to the poor schmoes who got caught in the crossfire? The girl who caught on fire before the credits started rolling? The girl whose MOUTH DISAPPEARED. The only person who could maaaaybe explain away being cursed is Cordelia, and only if you consider “Hey maybe I just had a stroke at 16 and that’s why my eyesight suddenly vanished for a day or two that one time” an acceptable way of explaining a traumatic metaphysical attack on one’s person but WHAT ABOUT THE GIRL WHO WAS ON FIRE. Did she have to go to therapy after? Did she leave Sunnydale like fuck this, this time the weird shit was strangely personal, I’m getting outta here. Or did she just…go back to school after a few days/weeks/months in the burn unit? What kind of message did she sign in Buffy’s yearbook, if so? Did she continue cheerleading? Or did she did she pull a Janis Ian and totally renounce cheerleading and become a gothish skaterchick with a revenge kick for plastics? WHAT HAPPENED TO AMBER is what I’m saying.
TEACHER’S PET BTVS S1E4
Mostly I just think Xander shoulda died in this one.
