It's the end of Angelus (for now), the end of Buffy's second season and the end of 16 millimeter film stock. Paul Maki joins the fun again as we take a look at the second half of this epic two-parter, Becoming. Giles has been kidnapped, Kendra has been murdered and Willow has resolve face. While Buffy tries to prevent the earth's impending destruction, her friends try to restore Angel's soul. To top it all off, Joyce finally learns of her daughter's secret life as a vampire slayer. All this show needs now is some heartbreaking piano music performed by Sarah McLachlan, and we've got a solid tearjerker on our hands... Oh, wait.

Who needs a hug?

As per usual, remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before beginning the episode on your DVD.

Hey, by the way, there wasn\'t time in the episode, but I wanted to point out that the Sleeper Hold is actually effective in causing hypoxia via compression of the arteries thus limiting bloodflow. This is still obviously questionable in vampires, but not in the ways discussed in the episode...

Just nitpicking the episode I was in fact a part of, so you don\'t have to... PM
