Storyline

Xander minds Oz, caged in the library for his lunar werewolf nights, but dozes off; a boy is kill in the woods and the window is open, so Faith takes second watch. Buffy dates gentle Scott Hope and takes mandatory school counseling with Mr. Platt, who says she must conquer her 'demon', obsession with a lost love. Looking for the werewolf, Buffy bumps into Angel, now a half-naked beast, and locks him up cuffed to chains in the mausoleum but tells nobody, not even Giles who says even after centuries of torture in the hell-dimension he may still be a redeemable monster, then finds Platt, murdered during the day. Scotty's school friends Pete Clarner and Debbie Foley share a horrible secret. The gangs suspects them because of links to the victims, meanwhile Angel breaks his chain... Written by KGF Vissers

The One With The Beast Boyfriend...
9 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this episode. It's very good but also kind of creepy. But it has a lot of themes and messages behind it, like about abusive relationships.

In this episode, there has been animal-like attacks and everyone suspects Oz, as he is the resident werewolf. But when Buffy discovers that it's actually one of her boyfriend, Scott's best friends, taking a formula to become a beast to "protect" his girlfriend, she has to help his girlfriend understand that what he's doing is wrong. He is basically on steroids and kills people.

Best part of the episode: When Buffy helps the girl out of her relationship.

Worst part of the episode: When the beast boyfriend turns into the beast.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
