Storyline

On a school field trip to the zoo, Kyle DuFours's gang of bullies taunt good boy Lance, till Xander stops them balancing the nerd over the fence of still quarantined hyena's- suddenly they are all eerily effected by the evil beasts' magical stare. Willow is completely smitten with Xander, but he chucks in her maths tutoring when the hyena spell progresses, as sensed by the piglet Herbert principal Bob Flutie introduces as mascot for the Sunnydale Highschool's 'Razorbacks' football team. Next Xander dumps Wilow, fully joining Kyle's 'hyena pack' of bullies. When the four known bullies are called in Flutie's office for devouring mascot Herbert, they eat him too. Luckily Xander was enforcing himself upon Buffy, so she knocked him down and locked him up. Giles, who first thought Xander was just suffering from pubertal hormones, now realizes it's a Massai 'primary' cult soul transfer, and Buffy tells him about what zoo keeper Dr. Weirick told them about the nasty hyenas, so they go talk to...

So Far the Best Episode of Buffy
1 July 2013 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

I am making my way through all of the Buffy seasons and episodes and so far this is my favorite episode. I found Xander so sexy in this episode and how close he came to getting with Buffy was fun.

I saw the end of the episode coming and most of the twists and turns, so it was mostly the way that Xander acted in the episode that was fun. I knew that he was going to still be lovable Xander in the end because he was credited for the whole series on IMDb, but knowing that he could also be a bad boy that was rough was fun.

I didn't enjoy the teasing of people that happened in the episode but that aside I felt like Xander wasn't like those other kids taken over in his pack, he was still good at heart and still had something true in himself, otherwise he wouldn't have wanted Buffy still.
