Love is in the air…or is it just ghosts?

* * *

Back in Sunnydale the annual Sadie Hawkins dance is fast approaching and everyone is getting ready.  That is until Buffy sees a boy in the hallway arguing and then pulling a gun on a girl.  After knocking the gun out of his hand he seems to not remember anything that just happened.  Then a hand reaches out of Xander’s locker causing them to question what is going on.  After a lot of running around Giles knows that it’s the ghost of Jenny, but Buffy and the rest think that it’s the ghost of a student and teacher from 1955 that are continually playing out the events that happened back then.  It does turn out to be them and luckily Willow has been studying Jenny’s files so now she is able to perform a kind of exorcism that should get rid of the ghosts.  It doesn’t go as planned and Buffy gets possessed by the student and the teacher possesses Angel.  Since the boy (student) accidentally killed the woman (teacher) he ends up killing himself right afterwards, so when Buffy shoots Angel and he lives, the ghost of the teacher is able to finally forgive the ghost of the boy and everything ends on a happy note.

Now this was just a very average episode.  There was nothing to really rave home about, but at the same time there was pretty much no real complaints about it either.  The story was pretty good overall with a very understandable ending that works in the episode’s favor.  It’s not one of my favorites but it’s not one of my least either.

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?
