The One Where Buffy's Friend Wants To Be A Vampire...
17 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I really like this episode. I ducted two points because I absolutely hated the character of Ford.

In this episode, Buffy's friend from her old school, Ford, moves to town. And he transfers to Sunnydale High. But the thing is, he's a bit suspicious. Neither Willow nor Xander believe that his intentions are good. So they do some digging, along with Angel's help. He's especially suspicious when he tells Buffy that he knows her secret of being The Slayer. How does he know this? Why didn't he say anything in the last year? Why is he suddenly in Sunnyvale? All will be answered. It turns out that Ford is dying, so doing the only sane thing he could think of, he decides to become a vampire. He chooses to sacrifice Buffy in order to get Spike to turn him. He lures Buffy into a club, where everyone believes that vampires are just "misunderstood". How dumb can people be? I'll answer that for you. Really dumb. In the end, Buffy escapes and traps Spike, Ford, and all the other vampires, including Drusilla, in the club. They eventually turn on Ford and eat him.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10.
