Liveblogging Buffy: Season 1, Episodes 10 & 11

(previously on Buffy)

Episode 10: Nightmares

  • 10:30 PM, 4/7/13

I have made an important discovery:

apparently on amazon you can buy 2 lbs of live earthworms

that’s around 1000 earthworms

….which obviously means I could buy 2 lbs of earthworms and anonymously send them to someone

  • 10:32 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkwyuosCSD1qz4rgp

why do I get the feeling that this episode is going to freak me out

  • 10:35 PM, 4/7/13

buffy, I feel like you should 100% not be in this sex dungeon

tumblr_inline_mkwyxvtzWd1qz4rgp

(these dark screencaps look like hot garbage so you’ll just have to trust me: she is totally in a weird sex dungeon)

  • 10:37 PM, 4/7/13

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that, seeing as this episode is called “Nightmares” then probably a lot of this shit is a dream

tumblr_inline_mkwz1sE2bu1qz4rgp

  • 10:43 PM, 4/7/13

okay, I’m sorry

tumblr_inline_mkwz3fXwRr1qz4rgp

but those lacy pillows look mad uncomfortable

you’d wake up with lines and shit all over your face

  • 10:45 PM, 4/7/13

OH SHIT

WE HAVE A MENTION OF MR. BUFFY’S DAD

THIS IS NOT A DRILL

  • 10:49 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkwz8yZWm31qz4rgp

YAAAY

MY FAVORITE TEENAGE NARCISSIST!

  • 10:53 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkwzb2Rzhv1qz4rgp

it was nice of a young steven seagal to make the effort to travel through time for a cameo

  • 10:55 PM, 4/7/13

Willow, I know I give your fashion sense a lot of shit, but I am digging your hair right now

tumblr_inline_mkwzfeXO9F1qz4rgp

  • 11:00 PM, 4/7/13

  • 11:03 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkwzokshGD1qz4rgp

I dunno, I went to public school and I think that was pretty par-the-course for used textbooks

  • 11:05 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkx04m2J8d1qz4rgp

high school was a wacky time

  • 11:10 PM, 4/7/13

so here’s a question…

tumblr_inline_mkx08meHYk1qz4rgp

do voldemort and evil harry potter just chill in the sex dungeon all day?

I remember being nine and a sex dungeon would have held my attention for five or ten minutes tops

  • 11:13 Pm, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkx0dlmvmN1qz4rgp

bitches are talking about change more than an Obama campaign

tumblr_inline_mkx0eeatng1qz4rgp

  • 11:20 Pm, 4/7/13

“Those furry bodies and their sticky webs. And what do they need all those legs for anyway?”

– file under “Times I Could Not Tell If Willow Was Discussing Spiders Or Dudes”

  • 11:23 PM, 4/7/13

giles just came stumbling out of the back room like a confused panda

tumblr_inline_mkx0mbvTwd1qz4rgp

  • 11:26 PM, 4/7/13

Wendell: They’re not insects, they’re arachnids.

Xander: They’re from the middle east?

Me: Thank God you’re pretty.

  • 11:27 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkx0ryLv981qz4rgp

whoa, steven seagal is gettin’ reeeeal uptight about the whole “spiders aren’t insects” thing over here

  • 11:30 PM, 4/7/13

yeah

tumblr_inline_mkx0v2Po3c1qz4rgp

no

  • 11:35 PM, 4/7/13

OKAY HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE

tumblr_inline_mkx0yffjeO1qz4rgp

so not only did ponytail weirdo say that he “loves spiders but they hate me” but he also just said that he had a huge collection of spiders when he was a kid

a collection that contained black widows

UM

WHAT

  • 11:38 PM, 4/7/13

apparently Wendell’s spider nightmares started after his brother accidentally killed his spider menagerie

here’s a theory:

maybe in reality your parents murdered them while you were away because you were keeping black widows in the house like a goddamn lunatic

  • 11:45 PM, 4/7/13

it’s hard to concentrate on a test when mark david chapman is your teacher

tumblr_inline_mkx1l4KO4I1qz4rgp

  • 11:47 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkx1o30ZxF1qz4rgp

ruh roh

JGL’s got some creeper music playing and is all lit up like Touched By An Angel

tumblr_inline_mjru6yVf0h1qz4rgp

  • 11:55 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkx1v2HOYm1qz4rgp

am I the only one who thinks buffy and giles should stop going to see people at the hospital together since it seems mad sketchy?

  • 11:59 PM, 4/7/13

tumblr_inline_mkx21x8hb41qz4rgp

I’m glad the “whose outfit is uglier” competition is still going

  • 12:05 AM, 4/8/13

oh giles

of course it’s your nightmare to not be able to read

  • 12:08 AM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkx2cgcBoL1qz4rgp (1)

Buffy’s dad seems to have also graduated from The Giles School For Not Understanding Personal Space

  • 12:10 AM, 4/8/13

whoa, Buffy’s dad is telling her that her parents’ divorce was her fault

tumblr_inline_mkx2grmdYC1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkx2jafX0U1qz4rgp

this nightmare ghost/astral projection/monster thing is a dick

  • 12:13 AM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkx24ihVPW1qz4rgp

oh no, xander’s naked!

i hope someone finds his clothes

  • 12:15 AM, 4/8/13

“We should split up, it’ll be faster.”

“Faster? But probably not safer.”

so baby JGL was beaten into a coma after a baseball game

tumblr_inline_mkx3oh14lA1qz4rgp

damn

this is a dark version of Angels In The Outfield

  • 12:35 AM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkx3u8eZmO1qz4rgp

apparently Willow’s nightmare is to become a geisha

  • 12:37 AM, 4/8/13

well, her nightmare is more specifically becoming a geisha for Rob Reiner

tumblr_inline_mkx3yoY1Hf1qz4rgp (1)

which I think we can all understand

  • 12:42 AM, 4/8/13

The Candy Chronicles Part 3 (or “Xander, You Beautiful Idiot)

IS THAT ALSO SOMEONE’S NIGHTMARE

  • 12:50 AM, 4/8/13

oh my god

tumblr_inline_mkx4opBHGb1qz4rgp

one of giles’ nightmares is that buffy dies

ow, my heart hole

  • 12:54 AM, 4/8/13

yes, giles

tumblr_inline_mkx504nfUu1qz4rgp

scream at the child in a coma

tumblr_inline_mkx519luVs1qz4rgp

i’m sure that will solve everything

  • 1:00 AM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkx58uxFy11qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkx595LKyA1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkx59fx09p1qz4rgp

  • 1:05 AM, 4/8/13

okay so they woke the kid up by making him face his fear and apparently it was his little league coach that beat him up like that

that’s some traumatic shit right there

  • 1:06 AM, 4/8/13

and thus we signal the end of the episode by returning everyone their original, horrible outfits

tumblr_inline_mkx5pe9vVD1qz4rgp

  • 1:10 AM, 4/8/13

wait, I just realized they never explained this:

tumblr_inline_mkx5tv8dHK1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkx5ucSXV41qz4rgp

was…

was the clown a nazi clown or

  • 1:12 AM, 4/8/13

okay, that was fun but to bed I go

goodnight

don’t let the nightmare nazi clowns bite


Episode 11: Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight

  • 9:20 PM, 4/8/13

I just found out that Duck Dynasty isn’t just a duck version of Meerkat Manor

tumblr_inline_mkyfm5oaHX1qz4rgp

  • 9:25 PM, 4/8/13

I should work on my spec script which is why I’m gonna liveblog another episode of buffy

YOLO OR WHATEVER

  • 9:26 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkytpuh8Xp1qz4rgp

yaaaay, everyone’s favorite teenage misanthrope!

also, my roommate said that the last two episodes of this season are “when it gets better”

uh, roommate

did you not see the hyena episode? shit was gold

  • 9:30 PM, 4/8/13

Cordelia’s starting the episode off by hanging out with Captain America and calling him “Hellen Keller” when he doesn’t remember her eye color

tumblr_inline_mkytzeLSVj1qz4rgp

stay classy

  • 9:33 PM, 4/8/13

“She is always hanging out with that creepy librarian in that creepy library.”

– random anonymous girl about Buffy

I gotta give them props, Buffster. They got you pegged

  • 9:36 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyu55YGse1qz4rgp

Okay, so part of me thinks it’s almost out of character, but the rest of me is totally jazzed by the fact that Cordelia has opinions on The Merchant Of Venice

I mean, they’re stupid opinions

but still

  • 9:40 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyuadYSko1qz4rgp

DAMN YOU, CONVENIENTLY-PLACE SHOWER WALL

  • 9:43 PM, 4/8/13

I know they’re discussing bangin’ chicks but

tumblr_inline_mkyuf3ZCKE1qz4rgp

uh

tumblr_inline_mkyufdLdL71qz4rgp

right

  • 9:45 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyuhsIMbX1qz4rgp

I gotta say, I’m really glad it’s not just girls that get murdered in these locker rooms

  • 9:48 PM, 4/8/13

“hey guys, should we show that this bat is floating around on it’s own for more than a two-second shot”

“NO, WE BLEW ALL OUR MONEY ON THAT SWEET WASP SHOT LAST WEEK, JUST BEAT THE KID WITH IT AND STAY OUT OF FRAME”

“…okay”

tumblr_inline_mkyum1jmma1qz4rgp

  • 9:55 PM, 4/8/13

OH MY GOD

WILLOW’S GOT ONE OF THOSE WAXY FRUIT JUICE THINGS

tumblr_inline_mkyur8is9s1qz4rgp

I WANT ONE SO FUCKING BAD NOW

  • 9:58 PM, 4/8/13

willow and xander are all kinds of fucked up on waxy fruit juices

tumblr_inline_mkyuxeDfYD1qz4rgp

AND NONE FOR BUFFY SUMMERS BYE

tumblr_inline_mkyuxvL8cK1qz4rgp

  • 10:05 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyv5teUsA1qz4rgp

  • 10:07 PM, 4/8/13

okay, I call bullshit

tumblr_inline_mkyv98ABmR1qz4rgp

“if it’s just attempted murder, the police leave the weapon!”

  • 10:10 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyvbwA69p1qz4rgp

I’m having a weird flashback

tumblr_inline_mkyvh9z4yi1qz4rgp

  • 10:10 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyvkqpXUk1qz4rgp

giles, it’s like you’re not even trying to pretend that you’re doing your job anymore

  • 10:15 PM, 4/8/13

whoa

they just broke out the weird Lifetime Movie flashback filter

tumblr_inline_mkyvq36m0k1qz4rgp

what is happening

  • 10:16 PM, 4/8/13

Okay, I’m gonna predict it now:

bitch is invisible and she either wants to help or hurt Cordelia’s chances with the Spring Flingitty Flammitty or whatever it’s called

  • 10:20 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyw070wpb1qz4rgp

now I want a waxy fruit juice and a bitchy entourage that will dress me

  • 10:24 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyw2nGaqf1qz4rgp

okay, it is clearly very late at night

the only place we’ve seen giles sleep is in his office

does he even have a home

  • 10:27 PM, 4/8/13

GUESS WHO’S BACK

BACK AGAIN

tumblr_inline_mkyw56cIPp1qz4rgp

ANGEL’S BACK

TELL A FRIEND

  • 10:30 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkywctjb781qz4rgp

it’s kind of hilarious watching these two interact

can they just have like a buddy cop comedy spin-off

  • 10:32 PM, 4/8/13

uhhhhhhhhhhhh

tumblr_inline_mkywf64oXh1qz4rgp

is Angel flirting with Giles using the power of books?!

tumblr_inline_mkywg0EnrG1qz4rgp

it’s super effective

  • 10:35 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkywhlhBjF1qz4rgp

HOLY SHIT, CLEA DUVALL?

be still my vagina

  • 10:37 PM, 4/8/13

aw man, clea duvall just got hardcore aggressively ignored

that was actually legitimately heartbreaking and I have zero snarky things to say about it

all I can do is solemnly pour out a waxy fruit drink for all of my fellow ladies who went through high school feeling like that

  • 10:43 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyxg2qw7b1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkyxgegYd11qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkyxgpKzD31qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkyxm3sujQ1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mkyxmgCHSq1qz4rgp

let’s pretend I’m still funny

  • 10:49 Pm, 4/8/13

okay, I had a moment when buffy was crawling through the ceiling where I was super afraid clea duvall was going to have a spit cavern like that shape-shifter freakshow from the first season of x-files

but no

it’s just a bed

tumblr_inline_mkyxss3C2M1qz4rgp

  • 10:52 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyxwxdsRU1qz4rgp

CLEA, NO

YOU’RE BETTER THAN THIS

  • 10:55 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyxyfgM6B1qz4rgp

wow, is cordelia being helpful and compassionate?

misanthrope no mo

  • 10:58 PM, 4/8/13

I like when Giles explains something only to be met with blank stares, and he just looks at them all like

tumblr_inline_mkyy2iwF1m1qz4rgp

“ya’ll are simple bitches”

  • 11:03 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyy6imeh21qz4rgp

that’s what happens when you don’t get your parents to kiss at the enchantment under the sea dance

  • 11:05 PM, 4/8/13

okay, I feel for this chick

tumblr_inline_mkyyam1zrt1qz4rgp

but that is some joker-level bonkers shit right there

  • 11:08 PM, 4/8/13

oh my god, cordelia is so bad at asking for help or being sympathetic at all

tumblr_inline_mkyyenJ9Is1qz4rgp

i love her, PLEASE JOIN THEIR CREW

  • 11:11 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyyg25sLL1qz4rgp

SHE’S SITTING AT THE TABLE OF PLOT ADVANCEMENT!

YESSSSS

  • 11:13 PM, 4/8/13Cordelia just gave the “pity me, I’m popular but still capable of being lonely speech” which I normally am like “yaaaaaawnzies” but I actually found it compelling?

    what is this character doing to me

  • 11:20 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyysyK9W61qz4rgp

what’s cute is that any of them would think they wouldn’t walk directly into a trap

  • 11:25 PM, 4/8/13

this is creepy and everything

tumblr_inline_mkyyxrax9Y1qz4rgp

but WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT

tumblr_inline_mkyyy308DG1qz4rgp

  • 11:28 PM, 4/8/13

i think Buffy might have slightly lost control of the situation

tumblr_inline_mkyz17aGRZ1qz4rgp

  • 11:30 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyz2sw70R1qz4rgp

no child left behind is getting extreme

  • 11:32 PM, 4/8/13

SHIT IS GETTING REAL

tumblr_inline_mkyz62zj2o1qz4rgp

LIKE SOMEONE’S-ABOUT-TO-GET-THEIR-FACE-CUT-OFF REAL

  • 11:35 PM, 4/8/13

i like that xander still has time to be sassy in spite of noxious gas inhalation

  • 11:37 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyzc0YALi1qz4rgp

okay Angel, you saved Giles’ life

you get to take a step up from the worst

for now

  • 11:40 PM, 4/8/13

I wanna say good job angel

tumblr_inline_mkyzebGovb1qz4rgp

but I moreso wanna ask if you actually possess more than one outfit

  • 11:45 PM, 4/8/13

the fbi is here?!

tumblr_inline_mkyzj5R4qD1qz4rgp

WHAT?!

ALSO WAY TO SHOW UP LATE TO THE PARTY, GUYS

IT’S NOT LIKE ANY TEENAGE GIRLS’ FACES WERE ABOUT TO GET CUT UP

  • 11:47 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyzlkuygB1qz4rgp

So Agent Sweaty and Agent Defoe are gonna take Clea DuVall and, like, “rehabilitate” her

I know what that means

I’ve seen Heroes

  • 11:50 PM, 4/8/13

I can’t believe we’ve gone 11 episodes without an overalls sighting

tumblr_inline_mkyzpmRaVk1qz4rgp

bing bong

that’s the overalls gong

  • 11:55 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyztdWgUz1qz4rgp

it’s a class… full of invisible students

aka the cheapest filming day in the history of filming days

  • 11:58 PM, 4/8/13

tumblr_inline_mkyzvpaFDZ1qz4rgp

I’m glad the guide to assassinating people really just boils down to beatles lyrics

  • 12:10 AM, 4/9/13

I think I’m done liveblogging for tonight since I took extra long, what with my pizza and roosterteeth break

I guess the biggest developments are that I kinda love Cordelia now and I think I’ll start liking Angel more if he and Giles just keep hanging out and being awkward together

I can’t believe I’ve done this for almost the entire first season

I might keep doing it, though I may start just doing… episode summaries or something since people are now starting to harass me about watching them with me in realtime and I feel like a butt for being like “I’M GONNA PAUSE THIS A MILLION TIMES PER SECOND TO FIND THE PERFECT SCREENCAP YAAAAY”
