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

Trivia

During the credits, Giles describes the origins of vampires to Buffy, Xander, and Willow. He states, "...waiting for their animals to die out, and the old ones to return." In Season Seven, the old ones, the primordial vampires, return. See more »

Goofs

When Cordelia and her friend are in the computer lab working on an assignment, their dialogue implies it's a database problem. And Cordelia says "goto end," implying they're using a database language. But when we see the screen shot the program is a graphics plotting function in the C programming language. See more »

The One With The Harvest...
2 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. It's a great follow up to the Series Premiere.

In this episode, Buffy and her friends encounter a powerful vampire. The Master. Classy name. Wonder how he got that. He's hell bent on opening a portal that will free him from his prison. The sewers. Ew. After Buffy escaped from that big vampire, Jesse is still with them. They eventually turn him into a vampire, whilst setting him up as a trap for Buffy and Xander to foolishly fall into. Jesse goes to The Bronze and dances with Cordelia, and just as he's about to eat her, the other vampires all come in, and start killing people. This will somehow get The Master out of his "cage". But, knowing Buffy, she's gonna stop it and use some snappy one-liners on the way.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10.
