Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Dead Man's Party
Episode 36 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
airdate: 6 October 1998.
Buffy's home and there will be consequences of awkwardness and mistrust from her leaving. Xander, Willow, Oz, and Cordelia have gotten pretty good at the slaying while Buffy was gone, too. She's all shocked.
Giles is very relieved. Willow stands up Buffy...everyone has had to adjust without Buffy.
Joyce has a scary mask that reanimates the dead; first a cat, then a whole bunch of people, and they're all headed to the Summers household during a "hootenanny" everyone planned for Buffy that involves a TON of people. What's the metaphor here? Zombies equals disconnection with friends and family? Fun fact: Zombies don't eat brains in the Buffyverse.
Xander: You can't just bury stuff, Buffy. It'll come right back up to get ya.
It's really sweet how everyone chips in with the helping when the zombies attack. And they were all fighting a moment earlier. Everyone hugs at the end and Giles threatens Snyder and it's super hot.
