Did You Know?


Though knowing that the two witches (Willow very mostly) are responsible for Buffy's resurrection - and being after all glad by this - Spike accuses just Xander to have violated the nature's laws. See more »


When Spike assures Summers sisters he too had to dig with bare hands out of his grave, it's just a merciful lie: Spike never had a "proper" funeral (AtS "Not fade away"). Dru probably just put his body some inches underground, as she did with Darla (AtS "Reunion"). See more »


Dawn: Xander, drive faster!
Xander: I can't.
Dawn: I could drive faster, and I can't drive.
Anya: She's right. You're like a snail, a snail who's driving a car very slowly. Come on, give it the lead foot. We gotta help Buffy with that demon you sent after her.
Xander: I did not send the demon. I was possessed. The demon used me to eavesdrop on our conversation.
Anya: Great, so now what? We have to talk in some sort of anti-demon secret code?
Xander: Ood-gay idea-yay An-yay.

Not quite a Bodhisattva
1 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Willow decides it's time -- after Buffy's been dead for more than 3 months -- to cook up a resurrection spell to bring her back. That's the crux of the episode. Biker demons...blah...blah...blah. Giles returns to England...blah...blah...blah. Buffy-bot gets pulled apart by the biker demons...blah...blah...blah. Willow kills a young doe to get a key ingredient for the spell...blah...blah...blah. A demon accompanies Buffy back from the grave...blah...blah...blah.

But the essence of this episode is Buffy's return. The other significant element of this show is Spike's reaction to Buffy's return. He remains her most stalwart advocate, and arguably the friend who genuinely understands and connects with her at the deepest level, Willow notwithstanding.

The reason I chose the subject heading is because it's my understand that a Bodhisattva is a soul who achieves enlightenment and then chooses to return to this world to help others achieve enlightenment, rather than basking in Nirvana, soaking up the peace and contentment. In Buffy's case she was brought back to earth (with all the inherent suffering) from a heavenly realm because her friends missed her so much that they used witchcraft to bring her back. She's not a totally willing participant, and it remains to be seen what happens from this point forward.
