Storyline

While arguing whether he is jealous and has a vampire character, Angel and Buffy are attacked by a typical one, which is no problem, and she stumbles into an fresh grave, but remarks the body didn't rise itself as vampires do, it was dug up. Uncertain how to court a modern girl like miss Jenny Calendar, Giles can use some dating advice, then starts researching what evil purpose digging up girl bodies may serve, his guesses being a voodoo priest creating zombies or a flesh-eating demon, which is ruled out by a dig on the graveyard. Hiding (it was only Angel) in a dumpster near school, Cordelia finds thrown-away body parts. The gang correctly suspects science class ace Chris Epps, a recluse since his elder jock brother Daryl's fatal car accident, and geeky yearbook photographer Eric Gittleson, worries because there is no head taken yet and finds out only later the third perpetrator is already Frankenstein-monstrously 'reassembled' Daryl Epps, who wants a mate and chose Cordelia's head ...

Buffy: [sitting on top of the gravestone of Stephan Korshak] C'mon, Stephan, rise and shine. Some of us have a ton of trig homework waiting.
Angel: Hey. Is this a bad time?
Buffy: Are you crazy? You don't just sneak up on people in a graveyard. You make noise when you walk. You stomp or... yodel.

A brother's love
16 November 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Dead and Buried bodies goes missing and the scoopy gang thinks somebody is raising a zombie army, but Cordelia and Angel discover the remains of the bodies (arms, legs and such).

This is not a typical episode of Buffy in the sense that there's not much mystical in it. Basically it's just a brother's love and desire to look after his big brother, just like he did after him.

The effects are well done and don't have credibility problems. The acting is also good, nothing flashy but good enough for a quite (in comparison to other episodes) episode. Best performance must be from Anthony Head as a love struck Giles (and who can blame him, that Calender lady is good enough looking and shares some of his interests) who stumble around the concept of dating.

This is a good episode and a nice way of letting Buffy cool down a bit from last episode's spell of meanness by giving her something not vampiric related to battle. A 7 out of 10.
