I would have to choose Checkpoint, Spiral, and Crush. Buffy was bad-reared in Checkpoint and that episode was awesome. Crush because we've got to see the return of Drusilla. The episode showed us the importance of the Sprusilla relationship and how it overpowers the Spuffyness that is ridiculously blooming in this episode. Spiral because of the action.

  • Fool for Love - Because it's brilliant. I'm a sucker for flashbacks, we finally get some much-needed Spike background, we get to meet more Slayers, and Buffy and Spike (who have serious chemistry) spend almost an entire episode together, talking, snarking, fighting; it's great!
  • The Body - I mean...yeah.
  • The Gift - God, how I wish this had been the series finale, it's just so perfect in every, possible way. It doesn't disappoint, from the opening alley scene to the final zoom on Buffy's sunny headstone and everything in between.

Do I like the Body? No. But it’s definitely one of the best episodes of the series. It’s a rough episode for me and I know for a lot of people.

Fool for Love is great, especially when paired with the Angel episode “Darla”. Absolutely brilliant how they did that. FFL gave us that backstory on Spike that we had all been craving since season 2. Wonderfully acted.

The Gift. ‘Nuff said.

Another tough one...

Family - Though the main family issues could have handled much better, I like this episode due to Tara and Tillow.
Checkpoint - Both hilarious and powerful.
Fool for Love - I like to see fanged four in their glory days. ;)
The Body - Unique episode.
Forever - I might like this episode more than The Body somehow. The relationship between magic and death is an interesting concept. I like the Bangel moment here. Also, Buffy's "Mommy" at the end breaks my heart.
Intervention - The idea of Buffybot is a bit "euughhh" but it is an important episode for Buffy, and funny episode for Scoobies. Ending between Spike and Buffy is "aww."
Spiral - I was on the edge watching this episode. It is very thrilling.

I chose Intervention, Spiral, and Forever.

Fool for Love and Crush.

I don't particularly like Season 5, I think it's an overrated season with a weak season arc (the Dawn/key storyline) and is mostly carried by the "standout" episodes of Fool for Love and The Body.

I agree though I think the Body is overrated

This one is tough because I don't love season 5, too many episodes blend together for me. So, I picked Checkpoint, Fool for Love and The Gift.

Yeah I agree.

Family: I like getting Tara’s backstory as we didn’t know much about her except that her mom died.
Intervention: This episode was basically me laughing at every buffybot scene. Especially the Anya Buffybot scenes, “How is your money?” 🤣
The Gift: Need I say more.

HM: Fool For Love, enjoyed this one a lot, liked how perfectly it tied in to Darla on Angel.
