Surprised that i liked this
27 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yearning for a normal life, Buffy agrees to a date with the mysterious and brooding Owen. Giles discovers a prophecy of coming danger which would interfere with her plans, but she chooses Owen over battling the forces of darkness. When Giles goes out on his own and is trapped by a group of vampires, Buffy must figure out a way to balance dating and Slaying.

I was surprised with this episode as i seem to be the only one that likes it.I think it had a little bit of a slow start but this is where the characters begin to grow on me.

7/10
