37. Ep. 6.8 Tabula Rasa Willow really needs to stop playing with magic. She does a memory spell to make Buffy forget where she was when she was dead and to make Tara forget that she keeps casting memory spells on her. Of course, Tara realizes what has happened and it's all very sad. The in between bits are hilarious, though, as all the characters realize their roles in life. (Buffy says, “I'm like a superhero or something!”)
38. Ep. 6.16 Hell's Bells
Watching Anya's sadness shouldn't make for such good TV, but it really really does.
39. Ep. 6.17 Normal Again
I'm throwing this episode in because it blew my mind the first time I saw it. This is another alternate reality episode, but this time Sunnydale is the alternate reality. There is absolutely no rewatch factor to this episode, though.
40. Ep. 6.18 Entropy
Buffy advises Spike to move on and Anya realizes she has to move on as well. We've all been there, and we've probably all been drunk with the wrong person at the wrong time as well.
41. Ep. 6.19 Seeing Red
Willow and Tara are back together, Buffy and Xander make up, and Warren is a genious because he used a bullet to kill the Slayer.
42. Ep. 6.21 Two to Go
Season Six was really, really, really blah. It had some good points, and most of those were not at the end of the season. This episode is really no good, and Willow's stunt double is a hilariously sharp-chinned shemale. But even though I saw the name in the opening credits, I was ridiculously thrilled to see Giles show up at the end.
43. Ep. 6.22 Grave
Xander gets to save the world, and Buffy wants to show Dawn the world. It is very cute when Dawn fights beside Buffy, Buffy is impressed with Dawn's moves, and Dawn says, “What? You think I never watched you?” I really hate that Season Six ended on Spike and not one of the main characters, though.
44. Ep. 7.1 Lessons
Sunnydale High has been rebuilt, right over the Hellmouth again. Spike gets a visit from the evil morphing villian of this season. And how fun was it to see Warren, Glory, Adam, The Mayor, Drusilla, and The Master again?
45. Ep. 7.5 Selfless
As much as I wanted Xander and Anya to get back together, this episode was really good closure for them. And Anya finally, truly, grew up. Of course, I cried a lot in this episode.
46. Ep. 7.8 Sleeper
This is sort of the follow-up episode to “Conversations with Dead People.” I was confused as hell the first time I saw this, though. I really think it requires a rewatch after watching the entire season.
47. Ep. 7.12 Potential
This is a really good episode if you like Dawn (and I do!). Her actions in this episode could be interpreted as whiny or as the sister who lives in her sister's shadow. Faced with the possibility of being a Slayer, she reacts in a completely believable way, I think. There's a wonderful scene at the end where Xander talks to Dawn about not having any special powers, but how just being there is helpful. Unfortunately, he says, “I see everything...”
48. Ep. 7.16 Storytelling
I really didn't want to like Andrew, ever, but you just can't help it. And if you didn't like him already, this is the episode that will change your mind. Andrew finally grows up and faces all he's done.
49. Ep. 7.18 Dirty Girls
Buffy leads the potentials into battle and faces off against Caleb. The really only important thing about this episode, though, is Xander's sacrifice.
50. Ep. 7.21 End of Days
This is where “Buffy” starts to wrap itself up. Buffy and Faith have an interesting conversation (it would've been nice if Buffy had acknowledged that Faith has come a long way) that ends with “Thank god we're hot chicks with super powers.” There's also a really cute interaction between Anya and Andrew wherein Anya finally accepts her humanity and wants to fight.
to be concluded...
