Storyline

At night in the cemetery, Buffy saves Xander and Willow from vampires, later Giles explains their race descends from primeval demons. Meanwhile the vampires bring Jesse as offering to their master as the hell-mouth, before his ascension and 'harvest', but hearing about a slayer he rather keeps Jesse alive as chained bait for her. Buffy realizes the mausoleum must be the entry, and meets Angel again there; she enters alone- but Xander catches up, determined to help his mate. Giles reads up on the harvest. Jesse turns out to be a vampire already, but the heroes escape into safe sunlight. The master anoints vampire Luke as his killing, soul-devouring vessel. Xander guesses right Jesse will still go to the Bronze, the town's single cool club, like normal school-kids, and so does the whole vampire gang before Buffy's... Written by KGF Vissers

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Harvest is excellent conclusion to series pilot
20 September 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the second part of the pilot episode that aired on the WB's last broadcast of September 17, 2006. In this one, The Master and his minions are trying to "harvest" lives in order to free The Master from the underground Hellmouth. We find out Jesse is now a vampire, Willow is good with computers, Cordelia's not (I love Willow's "Push the deliver key" line to her), Harmony (Mercedes McNab) is Cordelia's friend here, and minion Luke (Brian Thompson) is not too bright (another favorite line, "It's about nine hours, moron" from Buffy after tricking Luke to look through a broken glass window with the sun shining). The final line from Giles, "The earth is doomed" after Willow, Xander, and Buffy joke about possible ways Buffy could get kicked out of school makes this the perfect beginning of this wonderful comedy-horror hybrid for the next seven years...
