The Weakness of Glory
15 October 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Buffy runs from Glory with Dawn, meets the gang and feels that she is not able to defeat the powerful god. She decides to runaway from Sunnydale with Dawn and her friends and asks Spike to bring his recreation vehicle. However, they are followed and attacked by the Knights of Byzantium that want to kill The Key, Giles is seriously wounded while driving and the RV capsizes. They run to an abandoned construction and Willow uses magic to protect them. Buffy calls Ben to help Giles bringing also Glory.

In this episode, Buffy and the Scooby gang learn how Glory can be defeated and the danger that The Key is. Dawn is kidnapped in the end by Glory, and now Buffy must rescue her to avoid the opening of countless demon dimensions. The problem with Dawn is that this annoying character seems to be protected by Buffy not because she is her sister or a nice human being, but just for her danger to the world. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Espiral" ("Spiral")
