Finally an important character dies…oh wait it’s only a secondary reccurring character

* * *

So Buffy wakes up in the morning with an envelope next to her.  Upon opening it, she discovers that there is a drawing of her while she was sleeping.  She knows that it was Angelus who did it and now she is concerned.  The other thing that is going on is Jenny Calendar is trying like hell to work her way back into the good graces of the group, especially Giles.  She goes to a store and picks up an Orb Of Thesulah, which is supposed to help Angelus get his soul back so he can be good again.  She figures out how to do this but is stopped and killed by Angelus, then she is put into her bed so that Giles could find her.  He gets pissed and tries to take Angelus on, then Buffy shows up to “save the day” and he gets away.

Okay episode, but nothing that really perked up my ears.  Yes Jenny dies, but who didn’t see that coming?  She did some bad things and disappeared for a while, now she’s back and we aren’t supposed to expect that.  Yawn…  And now Buffy finally realizes that Angel is really bad?  She really is dumb.

Question

Again, what role does fire play?  We have seen in the past that fire can easily kill a vampire, but we have Angelus warming his hands and almost shoving his face into one without any fear.  So how does this work?

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?
