Willow: Wait. Hey, listen. 'Once called, Eyghon can also take possession of the dead, but its demonic energy soon disintegrates the host, and it must jump to the nearest dead or unconscious person to continue living.'Is this something actually confirmed in the show, or just what fans have read into the subtext of his Ripper days?
Buffy: I still don't get what this has to do with Giles.
Willow: I don't know about Giles, but ancient sects used to induce possession for bacchanals and, and orgies.
To paraphrase Tara: I am sure Giles summoned the demon of debauchery, because it helped him get really good at checkers.
Veering off topic: Considering the men-are-beasts message we often see in the Buffyverse: Jenny calls Giles a sexy fuddy daddy, which makes Giles all awkward. Then we learn that he wasn't always this cute and awkward old man, but that he used to be someone who really engaged his darker more sexual side. That's like classic Buffyverse subversion.
