On March 10th, 1997 a little show aired on the WB that would ultimately change Pop Culture as we know it. Yes folks, I’m talking Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
After a tiny bit of insomnia, and a deep tidal wave of nostalgia, I’ve decided to start a rewatch of everyone’s favorite blonde badass to see how it stands the test of time, okay, maybe I just wanted an excuse to rewatch and share thoughts.
Episode: 102 “The Havest”
Air Date: March 10th, 1997
Plot: Buffy and her friends encounter a powerful vampire bent on opening a portal to a dimension inhabited by demons.
Lookie At Sunnydale:
And Baby Angel…just cause.
Does it Hold Up:
So it’s technically the second hour of the pilot, so on it’s own? Meh. But still a great episode. Jesse’s death perfectly sets up the fact that in The Whedonverse, NO ONE IS SAFE. As I mentioned earlier it also really starts to show the future Scooby-Gang dynamic.
On a whole, not the best episode, still enjoyable though.
