I would have to pick Wild at Heart, Pangs, and This Year's Girl. Wild at Heart because it focuses on the Willow&Oz relationship and Oz. It is always nice to get an Oz centeric episode. It was nice seeing him saving the love of his life over his femme fatale seductress. Seth Green looked wicked hot in this episode. Pangs because it was nice to see the group get together for Thanksgiving and arguing about history. It was just too bad that Joyce wasn't involved. Angel looking out for Buffy and helping the gang brought nostalgia to the episode. It was sad that Oz couldn't stay around a little longer for Thanksgiving. Spike being tied to a chair was priceless. This Year's Girl because Faith finally got out of a coma. It was nice of The Mayor to send her that tape.

  • Hush - For pretty obvious reasons, but this is just such an iconic, wonderful episode.
  • Superstar - This is such an underrated gem, another wonderful meta episode, and one of the best when it comes to focusing on a minor character of the show. Every time I watch it, I love it a bit more.
  • The Yoko Factor - I almost went with the Faith double-billing, but there is just something so special about this one, beyond just being hilarious, and as mentioned before it holds the only Bangel moment I actually love.

Restless- I could talk about this episode endlessly, and it has been analyzed endlessly. I love this episode so much. Plus we get to see the First Slayer and it starts Buffy on a path to seek more about the source of power. And so much foreshadowing for the next season.
Hush- do we even need to say why?? Plus My kids and I met the great Doug Jones at a convention. He has been in sooo many things and is so talented and kind.
Who Are You- is equally compelling. Both actresses do an amazing job playing each other and the psychology of being in another person’s body is fascinating.

New Moon Rising is a great episode but it makes me very sad. :( Just like Wild at Heart does. :( I love Tillow and I love Wiloz. :(

This is hard. S4 is my favourite season.
I love Restless and Hush as standalone episodes. They are original pieces of TV. Other than original writing&directing, another perk of Hush is that it is the first episode we get to know Tara and get a hint about Tillow relationship. 🌈
However, in terms of plot, I would prefer The Freshman and Who Are You?
Also, A New Man is a hilarious Giles-centric episode and it has a special place for me.

I chose The Freshman, Who Are You? and A New Man.

If I have to pick 3; A New Man, This Year's Girl and 'Who Are You? Three fantastic character-driven eps that have nothing to do with the main plot.

A New Man should get more love, and the Faith two-parter is better than all the Adam stuff combined.

It is good since the main plot itself is a bit weird. :D

I like season 4, there's a lot of good episodes but some really bad ones. I picked The Initiative (I really enjoy this episode and kinda kicks off the rest of the season), Restless (I love all the dreams) and This Year's Girl (I prefer it over Who Are You).

Something Blue: I enjoy this as it is a) Hilarious! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Buffy and Spike engaged as well as Giles' comments on it too. b)it opens our eyes to see how powerful Willow really is.
Hush: It is so different and unusual, The Gentlemen always creep me out, It's the beginning of Tillow and the scene with the projector always makes me laugh.
Restless: I love all the foreshadowing and it's packed so full of tiny details that I notice something new every time I watch it. "Be back before dawn!".

HM: Pangs "You made a Bear!" "I didn't mean to." "Undo it! Undo it!" 🤣
