Storyline

While Xander and Cordelia make out in the woods in her dad's car, they are attacked by a giant werewolf, who also killed various animals, on the night before the full moon. Giles insists no silver bullets, as a werewolf remains an innocent human except for three nights per lunar month, an ethical consideration wasted on former ivory poacher Kane, who wants his twelfth werewolf kill for the fur. Xander suspects and confronts school bully Lary, but finds out his secret is in fact queerly innocent and worth keeping. When they check the corps of Theresa, the only human fatal victim, Xander saves Buffy staking her: she's a vampire, attacking courtesy of her sire Angelus... After Oz wakes up naked in the wood, his aunt confirms Jordy is a werewolf too, but Willow is trough waiting for him to make the first move... Written by KGF Vissers

The One Where Oz Is A Werewolf...
3 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this episode. It's cool to see werewolves come into the Buffy Universe.

In this episode, people are being attacked by what is believed to be a giant dog. But Buffy and the gang realized that it's actually a werewolf, so they go to catch it. They meet a man who kills werewolves for sport, and who doesn't care that a werewolf is a person for most of the year. Oz was bitten by his cousin Jordy, and after waking up naked in the woods, he calls his aunt and finds out that Jordy is a werewolf, which leads Oz to become one as well.

Best part of the episode: When Buffy kicks the werewolf hunter's butt.

Worst part of the episode: The look of the werewolves, they're just super creepy.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
