Episode 12 of Season 1.
Things are getting serious now. I totally didn't realize that the last episode of disc 3 is the last episode of the season! This season is probably the only season wherein there's not a big dramatic buildup to the last ep of the season. Really nice slow motion vampire staking scene at the beginning! You can definitely feel the gravity of the season-ender.
Earthquake. As they're showing all the characters experiencing the earthquake, they show Cordelia, so they are definitely gearing up to make her a bigger cast member. And the Master made his first joke...the first indication of the incredible humor Joss usually gives his Big Bads. Yeay!
And double yeay for short blue snakeskin skirt!
Ohhh, I hate the scene where Xander asks Buffy out. Xander rejection makes me sad. I don't like mean Xander sarcasm.
The word Apocalypse has been used! Ooh, I should count Apocalypses!
"I'm just gonna go home, lie down, and listen to country music. The music of pain." -Xander.
Mmm, faucets pouring blood. Giles sharing prophecy with Angel. Prophecy thus: Tomorrow night Buffy will face the Master, and Buffy will die. Oh dear, Buffy is throwing a fit.
Giles is taking his glasses off an awful lot, but not cleaning them. It's a good thing I'm not counting him just taking them off because I'd have already lost count. Giles is knocked out again; this time, by Buffy.
Xander seeks Angel's help, despite his hurt feelings and hating Angel, like he does, all black-and-white-like. No-gray-area Xander is what we call him.
Buffy's first vampire bite. And her first death too. How quaint. And Xander brings her back. He saves the world. I should count that, too. Cordelia is helping avert the Apocalypse! How cute is that?
There's a lot of Willow screaming going on.
Yeay, an Apocalypse averted! Time for season 2!!
