Best show's episode(s) wannabe, but failing
5 June 2008 | by (Milano, Italia) – See all my reviews

In Region 2 DVD's, "Bargaining" is the only two-part that is melted in one feature-length episode. I do state that if they chose to make it a single episode, cutting out the bad parts, it should be my favorite. But the biker demons are one of the silliest and lamest villains in the whole show! That said, the resurrection of Buffy by Willow is the single most revolutionary, heretic, moving scene of the show! For the first time, the witch is using overall blackest magick. Beginning with her slaughtering bambi, then the pentacle (she, Tara, Xander, Anya and dead Buffy), then the snake from her mouth: they are all Voodoo charms. But Willow got through Voodoo: she raised the dead from her tomb and gave her a conscience! Buffy was a putrefied cadaver: not even Jesus Christ did the same! Lazarus was dead just by a couple of days, not months! No wonder if Willow feels omnipotent!
