Playing Hooky 8.jpg

We’re back, finally, with another exploration into the vampire milieu. This episode, we depart ever so slightly from the norm by having our very first guest! We are joined by the amazing Dixie Cochran from Onyx Path Publishing to talk about the classic “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.

We talk about three of the classic Buffy episodes:
Episode 1 - The Wish
Cordelia returns to school only to be rejected by Harmony and her former clique, who taunt her as "Xander's castoff". She goes to The Bronze where Buffy accidentally humiliates her further by knocking her into a pile of trash in front of her friends. Cordelia decides that Buffy is to blame for her predicament. The next day, new girl Anya gives Cordelia an amulet while trying to goad her into wishing something bad would happen to Xander. Instead Cordelia wishes that Buffy had never come to Sunnydale. Anya immediately transforms into Anyanka, the vengeance demon of scorned and wronged women, and grants the wish.
Episode 2 - The Prom
At school, Anya asks Xander to the Prom. Later, Buffy, Willow, Oz, and Xander discuss prom plans, and dresses. Buffy's mother Joyce visits Angel at the mansion and tells him that he cannot get in the way of Buffy's future, and that he will have to do something about it.
Episode 3 - Hush
In "Hush", a group of fairytale ghouls named "The Gentlemen" come to town and steal everyone's voices, leaving them unable to scream when The Gentlemen cut out their hearts. Buffy and her friends must communicate with one another silently as they try to discover why no one can speak and find whoever is murdering the townspeople. They must also find ways to express their feelings about each other and keep some semblance of control as the town descends into chaos.
