Dead Things/Waiting in the Wings
It’s a heavy theme this week, as both Buffy and Angel grapple with the idea of consent as men try controlling women through magical means. In Sunnyvale, the Trio’s latest plans lead to murder, and Buffy grapples with her involvement with Spike and her feelings about her resurrection. In L.A., the ballet comes to town Angel discovers the dancers are the same he saw decades ago. The gang uncovers the wizard behind the show, but not before the group rearranges romantically, under spell and for real, with heartbreaking results for Wesley and Angel.
