Storyline

While chasing a vampire in a cemetery, Buffy meets Dracula, who has come to Sunnydale to meet her. Buffy feels proud with the revelation of the greatest vampire in the world. Meanwhile, Giles secretly tells Willow that he will return to England since Buffy does not need his service of watcher anymore. Dracula turns Xander into his slave, and during the night, he visits Buffy, bites and put her under his thrall. Buffy hides the bite with a scarf and becomes powerless and seduced by the dark prince, who promises to disclose to her the darkness of her powers and increase them.

Darkness in the Powers
27 August 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While chasing a vampire in a cemetery, Buffy meets Dracula, who has come to Sunntdale to meet her. Buffy feels proud with the revelation of the greatest vampire in the world. Meanwhile, Giles secretly tells Willow that he will return to England since Buffy does not need his service of watcher anymore. Dracula turns Xander into his slave, and during the night, he visits Buffy, bites and put her under his thrall. Buffy hides the bite with a scarf and becomes powerless and seduced by the dark prince, who promises to disclose to her the darkness of her powers and increase them.

This episode has funny moments, like for example when Xander mocks Dracula in the cemetery or Willow tries to make Giles feel important as watcher or Buffy tells Dracula that she has watched his movies. But the conclusion is disappointing. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Buffy Versus Drácula" ("Buffy Versus Dracula")
