6.16 Hell's Bells
Writer: Joss Whedon (Created By), Rebecca Rand Kirshner (Writer), Joss Whedon (Writer)
Director: David Solomon
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Casey Sander (Mr. Tony Harris), Kali Rocha (Halfrek), Andy Umberger (D'Hoffryn), Lee Garlington (Jessica Harris), Jan Hoag (Cousin Carol), George D.

Leary (Clem), Abigail Mavity (Sara Age 8), Daniel McFeeley (Warty Demon), Robert Noble (Night Manager), Megan Vint (Karen), Ashleigh Ann Wood (Sara Age 18)

The episode itself is not bad, but I really do not like the fact, that they have broken up Xander and Anya in such a stupid way.

6.17 Normal Again

A great episode playing with an alternate reality. Fun that they left it open in the end, that the other reality may be the real one.

I didn't really like Tara, but 'Seeing Red' always brings a tear to my eye. I think I'm one of the few Buffy fans who actually loves season 6. It's usually known as one of the worst.

A great episode. Even though season six is one of the weaker one, it has a great big bad for the showdown.

6.21 Two to Go
Writer: Joss Whedon (Created By), Douglas Petrie (Writer), Joss Whedon (Writer)
Director: Bill Norton
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Danny Strong (Jonathan Levinson), Tom Lenk (Andrew Wells), Jeff Kober (Rack), Anthony Stewart Head (Rupert Giles), Steven W. Bailey (Cave Demon), James C. Leary (Clem), Jeff McCredie (Officer), Damian Mooney (Patrol Cop), Michael Younger (Truck Driver)

The showdown of this season. Not as good as I remember it, but worth nonetheless.

Rating:



6.22 Grave
Writer: Joss Whedon (Created By), David Fury (Writer), Joss Whedon (Writer)
Director: James A. Contner
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Anthony Stewart Head (Rupert Giles), Danny Strong (Jonathan Levinson), Tom Lenk (Andrew Wells), Steven W. Bailey (Cave Demon), Brett Wagner (Trucker)

The conclusion is better than the previous episode. I liked that it is Xander, the one without any superpowers, who saves the day.
I am not sure of it was on purpose by Joss Whedon, but I had the feeling that he was giving his opinion on this season through Giles. The first season which wasn't headed by him. When Buffy confesses all the bad things which she did this season concluding with her sleeping with Spike, Giles gets a laughing fit because of the absurdity of it and then tells her, that he (Giles/Joss) should have been here.

7.01 Lessons
Writer: Joss Whedon (Screenwriter)
Director: David Solomon
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Alex Breckenridge (Kit Holburn), Kali Rocha (Halfrek), DB Woodside (Principal Wood), Mark Metcalf (The Master), Juliet Landau (Drusilla), Harry Groener (Mayor Wilkins), George Hertzberg (Adam), Clare Kramer (Glory), Adam Busch (Warren), David Zepeda (Carlos), Jeremy Howard (Dead Nerd), Ken Strunk (Dead Janitor), Rachael Bella (Dead Girl), Ed F. Martin (Teacher), Simon Chernin (Student), Jeff Denton (Vampire)

A nice enough start to a new season. I especially enjoyed the ending where we get the chance again to see all of the old dead big bads of the series.

Rating:



7.02 Beneath You
Writer: Douglas Petrie (Screenwriter)
Director: Nick Marck
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Kaarina Aufranc (Nancy), DB Woodside (Principal Wood), Tess Hall (Punk Girl), Benita Krista Nall (Young Woman), Jack Sundmacher (Ronnie)

A rather average episode with some good moments.

Rating:



7.03 Same Time, Same Place

Johnson (Father), Matt Koruba (Teen Boy), Nicholette Dixon (Sister), Marshè Daniel (Brother)

Best episode so far in this season. Some fun interaction between Spike, Willow, Buffy and Xander because of the fact that Willow cannot be seen by Buffy and Xander.

Rating:



7.04 Help
Writer: Rebecca Rand Kirshner (Screenwriter)
Director: Rick Rosenthal
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), Azura Skye (Cassie Newton), Zachery Bryan (Peter), Glenn Morshower (Mr. Newton), Rick Gonzalez (Thomas), Kevin Christy (Josh), Sarah Hagan (Amanda), Beth Skipp (Lulu), Anthony Harrell (Matthew), Jarrett Lennon (Martin Wilder), DB Woodside (Principal Wood), J Barton (Mike Helgenberg), Daniel Dehring (Red Robed #1), AJ Wedding (Red Robed #2), Marcie Lynn Ross (Dead Woman)

An okay episode. Nothing special.

An average episode continuing this season's arc.

7.10 Bring On The Night
Writer: Marti Noxon (Screenwriter), Douglas Petrie (Screenwriter)
Director: David Grossman
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Kristine Sutherland (Joyce), Tom Lenk (Andrew), Iyari Limon (Kennedy), Clara Bryant (Molly), Courtnee Draper (Annabelle), Juliet Landau (Drusilla), DB Woodside (Principal Wood), Camden Toy (Ubervamp), Chris Wiley (Roger)

The first potential slayers are coming in. Among them Kennedy. I know that she is not very well liked among fans (especially Willow/Tara) fans, but I never really had anything against her, except that she acted sometimes really irresponsible.

7.11 Showtime
Writer: David Fury (Screenwriter)
Director: Michael Grossman
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Tom Lenk (Andrew), Iyari Limon (Kennedy), Clara Bryant (Molly), Indigo (Rona), Amanda Fuller (Eve), Camden Toy (Ubervamp), Lalaine (Chloe), Felicia Day (Vi)

A good episode. It's also the first appearance of Vi, played by Felicia Day ("The Guild", "Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog"). She is one of the reasons I was looking forward to watch season seven again. The last time I watched it, I didn't know her yet and I didn't remember her. No wonder. Her role is quite small. She even only appears during the ending credits.

7.12 Potential
Writer: Rebecca Rand Kirshner (Screenwriter)
Director: James A. Contner
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), Tom Lenk (Andrew), Iyari Limon (Kennedy), Clara Bryant (Molly), Indigo (Rona), James C. Leary (Clem), Sarah Hagan (Amanda), Felicia Day (Vi), Derek Anthony (Imposing Demon)

The obvious storyline they had to do. Let Dawn think she is a potential. There is one argument for her not liking it, which really bothered me. She said, for her to be activated, her sister would have to die. Why do they always forget, that it would have to be who has to die for the next slayer to be called? The slayer line now runs with Faith. Only the first time that Buffy died, a new slayer was activated. This was Kendra and after her death, Faith was called. No new slayer was called after Buffy died the second time.

7.13 The Killer In Me
Writer: Drew Z. Greenberg (Screenwriter)

Willow and Kennedy get closer and Willow gets turned into Warren. A fun episode. And it never bothered me, that Willow and Kennedy hooked up. The Willow/Tara fans obviously were upset about this.

7.14 First Date
Writer: Jane Espenson (Screenwriter)
Director: David Grossman
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), James Marsters (Spike), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Ashanti (Lissa), Danny Strong (Jonathan), Tom Lenk (Andrew), Iyari Limon (Kennedy), Sarah Hagan (Amanda), Kristy Wu (Chao-Ahn), K. D. Aubert (Nikki Wood), DB Woodside (Principal Wood)

An average episode where again Xander's date turns out to be a demon. And how could he write Willow a text message when he was tied up?

7.15 Get It Done

Principal Wood joins the gang. A good episode but nothing special.

Faith is back! :)
She has some great scenes with Spike. Also this is the start of Nathan Fillion's appearances as a villain.

Leary (Clem), Justin Shilton (Munroe), Nathan Brooks Burgess (Duncan), David Grammer (Crazy Citizen)

A good episode where everyone starts to doubt Buffy's abilities as a leader. Funny how she defends herself by saying that she was successfully making the tough decisions for the last seven years. I remember it differently.

7.20 Touched

Nichols (Middle-Aged Man)

Of course it turns out that Buffy was right all along. Typical. Otherwise a good episode. Fitting to see Mayor Wilkins as The First in Faith's present.

A good episode with some nice heart-to-heart talks. And a surprise guest which was spoilt by the episode's menu.

A series finale I really enjoyed. Even though it's really a cop out in how they defeat this unbeatable villain. But it provided some really cool scenes (before and after).
