This episode had to the best one of the entire first season. It continued with the storyline of the master in a slick and inventive way. We get to witness everyone’s personal fear including Buffy’s.

This episode is one of the best episodes this season. It could be one of the best in its entire series run. It was put together very nicely and everything seemed to fit in. The acting was on point and the suspense level was unexpectedly high. This was one of those stand alone episodes where the storyline didn’t focus around the master. I believe this was the episode that made The WB (Now CW) realize what kind of gem they really had.
This ... Read More
