Riley returns to Sunnydale while pursuing a demon and seeks Buffy's help in killing it. He also comes with a surprise... he is married. His wife, fellow demon hunter Sam, befriends the entire Scooby Gang and gets along quite well with all of them, but Buffy's own "relationship" with Spike comes into question when her ex's perfect romance shows her just what she doesn't have.

The One Where Riley Returns...
3 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoy this episode. I love seeing Riley come back to find out that Buffy and Spike have been hooking up. It's so funny.

In this episode, Buffy's ex-boyfriend, Riley, returns to Sunnydale in need of Buffy's help. He needs to find a person who is smuggling dangerous demon eggs. We discover that Riley is now married and his wife, Sam, is actually very likable. After finding this out, Buffy goes to Spike in need of some release, and then Riley finds them in bed together. It turns out that Spike is the demon who has the eggs, although he says he's only holding them for a friend. After Riley leaves, Buffy breaks up with Spike for good.

Last appearance of: Riley Finn.

Best part of the episode: Riley's face when he sees Buffy and Spike in bed together.

Worst part of the episode: When Buffy breaks up with Spike.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
