    Before I begin, I just want to clarify something you brought up in the previous podcast
    for the previous episode. In case you didn’t know, they actually turned Buffy into a rat
    not because they wanted to avoid her seriously hurting Xander, but because Sarah
    Michelle Gellar had to take a week off so that she could travel to New York City and
    host Saturday Night Live for the first time. =)

    Now onto Passion. This is where Angelus really ups his game. Up until this point
    he has been taunting Buffy and playing mind games with her. But this is the
    episode where he shows just how much of a threat he really is. He’s not playing around.

    Not only does he pay Joyce a visit and tell her about his night of passion with Buffy,
    but one of the Scoobies is actually killed, and it was a bold and surprising move to
    make, having the hero of the show brutally murder a woman is a REALLY gutsy story

    We knew Jenny, we liked her and Angelus snapped her neck on screen. This makes everyone’s plight against evil after this scary, tense, and gives the show a level of
    realism and depth. All bets are off and anyone can be killed off.

    I believe that this is one of the most important episodes of the second season.

    P.S. And it had that AMAZING chase scene!

  2. Hi guys,
    Passion is one of those episodes that just sticks with you.
    Like Mike said: Angelus shows how much of a threat he is. But not in a brutal force-way (well, except for the murder), but in a mindgame way…. I mean, how creepy were the drawings.

    This episode is also a good example how the makers can combine drama and humor very well. Like with the random appearence of students in the Library and the gangs reactions to that, and almost all of the comments of Xander and Cordelia 🙂

    Also, this episode was an important one for the development of the relationship between Buffy and Giles.

    Btw: the animals in this episode had a raw deal. Poor dog, and poor fish!
