Storyline

Buffy tells soldier Riley, who insists to be a nice, otherwise normal Iowa boy, she knows all about his secret military commando unit, and that she is the slayer, they agree on discretion and a time-out. However mismatched the involuntary house-mates are, frustratingly 'implant-innocent' Spike can't even hit Xander, fails a suicide attempt by falling on a stake. Willow is sad to find Percy drove to Sunnydale all the way from USC to visit Laurie but considers her a negligible nerd. Giles presumes Buffy's panic after an seismic tremor unjustified, till he checks the triangular mark carved into a corps Willow found in her bed, left by a demon race associated with the sacrifice of three -Buffy and Riley find one in the cemetery, each's team is alerted- and the word of Valios; by the time Giles figures out it's a talisman in his possession, it's robbed by the demons, who may now be able to open the apocalyptic hell-mouth in the high-school ruins left from the mayor's ascension... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Xander: I hate to break it to you, O Impotent One, but you're not the "Big Bad" anymore. You're not even the "Kind of Naughty". You're nothing but a waste of space. My space. And as much as I always got a big laugh watching Buffy kick your shiny, white bum, and as much as I know I can give you a little bum-kicking myself right now, I'm here to tell you something: You're not even worth it.

Back to the Hellmouth
9 August 2006 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

While Buffy and Riley disclose their secret lives to each other, three demons try to collect some objects for a ritual of sacrifice to open the Hellmouth for the Apocalypse. Spike finds that he can fight evil, and join Willow and Xander in their hunting of demons.

The best par of "Doomed" is again the very funny Spike, trying to commit suicide, wearing Xander's shirt or very happy when he sees that he can fight evil. Xander and Willow are also great with their lines. The romance of Buffy and Riley is quite silly, but in the end this episode entertains. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Predestinados" ("Predestinated")
