Storyline

Angel's night of fleshly passion with Buffy has transformed him again into the super-vampire Angelus, without a soul, who teams up with Spike, Drusilla and the assembled demon Judge, offering to eliminate Buffy with love. Willow is shocked to see Xander kiss Cordelia and turns to fellow nerd (but band member) Oz. Just sensing Angel doesn't truly love her back devastates Buffy, seeing him turned vampire again reduces her to useless tearfulness, then makes Giles's lady-friend Janna 'Jenny' Calendar, who clearly knew something, tell about Angel's soul-curse, while angel turns to her gypsy Uncle Enyos. Meanwhile Xander works rather literally on the line 'it took a army' to defeat the Judge... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Sometimes Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) writers include in-jokes in their scripts. The shooting script for this episode contained the following direction: "A couple of soldiers pass. Xander suavely nods to them. They nod back and pass without comment, because they are extras." When Xander and Cordelia make out, the directions were: "They haben der big smoochen." See more »

Goofs

As the Judge is zapping his first victim on the stairs at the mall, the entire background scene of the mall below is frozen. This is especially noticeable in the case of a stooped-over man visible past the Judge's left elbow. See more »

This is one reason why Buffy was great
9 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sure there are some really cheesy episodes of Buffy and her stuttering timid friends can get annoying but there are a handful of epic episodes that are inspired, dark and poignant that tackle real issues better than any teen drama out there. This is one of them (a few others that come to mind is the season 1 finally, the nightmare episode and Spike & Drew's first episode).

Sarah Michelle Gellar is damn hot obviously but that fact aside, she has serious skill as an athlete and actress and this is proof. No wonder Buffy got picked up for several more seasons. The rest of the cast are at their best in this one too, I think they all knew this was one of the better written episodes.
