Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Angel – tape 2489

We’re definitely jumping around in time with this batch of tapes, that’s the problem with me finding a cache of unnumbered tapes, and numbering them as I was digitising them.

So we flip forward to the latter part of Season Four of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Where The Wild Things Are. Buffy is patrolling with boyfriend Riley, and they’re finding vampires and demons working together, something that usually doesn’t happen.

Xander and Anya are together, and Xander is working as an ice cream man. Cue inappropriate discussions about sex in front of the young customers.

Talking of sex, Buffy and Riley are at it a lot in the Initiative frat house – so much so that it seems to make the fire in the fireplace flare up and burn one of the soldier boys.

Despite this early warning of something amiss, it doesn’t stop them having a party in the house.

Anya is worried that Xander has lost interest in her (due to her inability to understand proper human relationships) so she brings Spike to the party. Not necessarily a good idea, since the Initiative, which Riley and his friends work for, and which is underneath the house, had kept Spike prisoner and put an inhibitor chip in his head that stopped him killing people.

There’s a ghostly boy in the bathtub.

The house evacuates, but Buffy and Riley are still in there. So they seek Giles out, and find him spending some ‘grown up time’ performing at a coffee bar.

The gang are shocked.

Some research turns up the fact that the house used to be a home for children, so they visit the woman who ran the house, played by Kathryn Joosten, Mr Landingham off of The West Wing.

She used to punish the children when they were ‘dirty’, which led to the house having huge pent up poltergeist energy, being let loose by Riley and Buffy having sex.

As Willow, Tara and Giles try some magic to release the trapped spirits, Xander and Anya go back to the house to try and get Buffy and Riley. The house is a little wild.

The spell is broken when they finally get to Riley’s room and interrupt the couple.

After this, there’s an episode of Angel. It was good that Sky were able to show Buffy and Angel back to back in sequences, because of the occasional crossovers.

This episode follows on from a couple of previous Buffy episodes (which we haven’t seen) where Faith wakes up from her coma and wreaks havoc. Now she’s in LA looking for trouble.

We also get more olde-timey Angel and Darla action. This time, we actually see the time Angel gets his soul from the gypsy curse.

Angel rescues a man being attacked by demons. He’s a witness in a case against a client of spooky law firm Wolfram and Hart. So they decide to deal with Angel by recruiting Faith.

Angel looks good in a suit, as he infiltrates Wolfram and Hart.

Faith kidnaps and tortures Wesley to draw out Angel. This is all very grim stuff.

There’s an impressive fight between Faith and Angel, as Faith taunts Angel. But the fight and the episode ends as she finally breaks down sobbing, begging Angel to kill her because she’s so bad. It’s a surprisingly emotional ending, but it’s clearly setting up events for the next episode.

But we don’t get to see that right now, as the recording continues with the first hour of Housesitter, the Goldie Hawn/Steve Martin comedy.
