BTVS Reviewage: Innocence (Lost)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Season 2, Episode 14


Written by: Joss Whedon
Directed by: Joss Whedon

Blurb: Buffy must battle not only the Judge, but [I'm not listing the rest because it spoilers the meaning of the end of 'Surprise'].

My Blurb: Last episode, Angel almost left Sunnydale in order to carry a piece of a powerful demon named the Judge away, so that Dru and Spike couldn't reassemble him. This was interrupted by a vamp attack, which got the needed arm to the bad guys. The piece was assembled and Buffy and Angel made a narrow escape. In his apartment, their attraction finally boiled over and they had sex, Buffy losing her virginity. But then something happened -- Angel got dressed and stumbled out into a rainstorm where he yelled in apparent anguish for the Slayer. She didn't hear him....

So, I'm going to spoil the meaning of the end of Surprise in this here review, right? YEP. Not a spoiler free zone, folks.

Scene 01: We open with Spike wheeling into frame as the Judge is kneeling and meditating. His focus is currently on Drusilla, however, as he tries to convince her that they should be vacating the premises now that Buffy and Angel know they survived the Church Organ of Crush, where they're now holed up, and that the Judge is in one piece.
