Storyline

Principal Snyder is so eager to see Sunnydale High's swim team go trough to the state finals that he 'suggests' Willow should spare its boys failing grades, on top of general adulation and favors. However, the best swimmers are soon murdered -in order- by an aquatic monster, unknown even to Giles and his books, which leaves only their skin, as witnessed by Xander, who enrolls as new swimmer -sexier in Speedos and braver then Cordelia ever imagined- while Buffy tries to guard the number three and most likely next target. It turns out the whole team is on special steroids, inhaled in the sauna, a secret strictly guarded by Coach Carl Marin, even when school nurse Greenleigh gets second thoughts...

Trivia

In 2014, a Details Magazine interviewer asked Wentworth Miller about his experience playing a "fish monster" in this episode, his first onscreen acting job. Miller responded: "Honestly, I was completely out of my depth and doing whatever I could to keep up. They glued this prosthetic piece covered with scales to my chest. Then there was a piece over it that looked like human skin. I had to peel through the top layer to reveal the beast within. Deep into the third hour of this, the makeup artist says to me, 'We only have one of these pieces to tear through, so you need to get this right.' Hollywood can be a deeply strange place."

Hot guys episode!
21 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

I have always been a fan of Buffy. Growing up I recorded all the episodes. Looking back recently I came across this episode. To my surprise I recognize a lot of Hot actors who accomplished a lot today. First we got Wentworth miller who is now famous for prison break. And then there is Shane west who is now famous for the movie a walk to remember as well as the popular TV show Nikita. and lastly my favorite Jeremy Garrett who played as the boyfriend of Liza Wakefield in sweet valley high. This is has got to be my favorite episode just because of all the hot actors. I am so happy they got successful starting out with Buffy the vampire slayer.
