It’s a monkey!!!!!! Oh, it’s gone. Back to the rest of the episode.

* * *

The episode begins with Buffy having a dream where she ends up at The Bronze and sees Willow talking to a MONKEY! Then she sees Angel get staked by Drusilla and she wakes up. It’s almost Buffy’s birthday and Willow and friends are planning a party for her, but they learn that the bad guys are trying to revive a demon called The Judge. A big bad guy that can’t be killed by a weapon forged (whatever the fuck that means). We also find out that Jenny is actually a gypsy and that she is trying to separate Angel from Buffy. Whatever.

It’s another standard episode with a bad guy being introduced and you know that they will be taken out in a very simple and cheap way. I mean the judge sounds pretty cool, but I’m not expecting much. But that aside, it was an okay episode. We get to learn a little about Jenny and her past, which is nice. Oz and Willow are finally starting up a relationship, which is cute. Buffy and Angel finally get it on which is kinda odd. Some fun parts and some pretty bad parts, but overall pretty…okay.

So my question this time is

If The Judge can’t be killed by something forged, does that mean by man or beast? Either way couldn’t you just pick up a sharp stick and stab it? Pick up a rock and crush its skull? How about just punching and kicking it?

About The Drudgeon

I don't remember my real name or where I came from. All I know is that I'm traped in an underground cave with nothing but a TV, DVD player and a notebook and pen. They keep calling me The Drudgeon, I don't even know what that means. Someone keeps dropping horror movies in and yelling at me to watch them and write about what I watch. Then I eat the DVD and case, because they tell me if I consume the horror I will understand the horror. I think there are three of them. So if you are reading this right now, HELP ME!!!!!!! OUCH!!!! Someone just poked me with a sea urchin attacked to a pool cue, what the fuck is going on?
