Tonight if we are lucky we will finish up season four. We started the night with "Where the Wild Things Are" Here's a brief synopsis; At a fraternity party, Buffy and Riley are compelled to have sex by a mystical influence. The party is held in a house — formerly a home for wayward children — that is haunted by angry manifestations of children who were physically and emotionally abused by the woman who managed the home. I enjoyed the episode, I mean it's wasn't one of the best but just an okay episode.
Next was "New Moon Rising" Here's a quick synopsis; Oz arrives back in Sunnydale, seemingly able to control his wolf side even during the full moon, and presents Willow with a difficult choice. Compared to the first episode we watched tonight I really enjoyed this episode. It truly is the beginning of the Tara and Willow relationship. As much as I loved Oz and Willow as a couple, He had he chance and blew it. Willow has moved on and Tara is one of my favorite characters from the series. Great episode.
For our fourth episode of the night we watched "Primeval" Here's a quick synopsis; The Scooby Gang foil Adam's plan to create an army of hybrid cyborg monsters. Buffy magically joins with the rest of the gang to kill Adam after an intense fight. Even though this is the second to last episode of season four this truly is the ending of the season four storyline. It's a very enjoyable episode. Has one of my favorite moments at the end when Buffy is combined with the scooby gang and become super Buffy. I love when she just hold her hand up and turns those large grenades into doves... that entire scene was pretty awesome.
Now we normally watch just 3 to 4 episodes but since we had one more for the season we decided to go with five.. so for our fifth and final episode of the night we watched "Restless" Here's a quick synopsis; "Restless" is characterized by bizarre dream settings which illustrate the four main characters' overall themes as well as providing extensive hints about future developments. It follows the Scooby
Gang's victory over the villain Adam by magically joining in "Primeval", which has summoned the essence of the First Slayer (who is not happy about how Buffy is handling the job). Extremely bizarre, interestingly shot and lots of set up for the next season. Folks normally love or hate this episode. I think it's Joss being very experimental so I can enjoy it on that level. I haven't seen it in a while and watching it again I think I enjoyed it more as I knew what craziness was about to happen. Probably not the best episode to end the night on for Robert. But woohoo... we finished another season, only 3 more seasons to go.
Next up Season Five and one of my all time favorite big bads... Glory. I can't wait!!!!
