Top 10 Favorite Buffy, The Vampire Slayer Episodes

Top 10 Favorite Buffy, The Vampire Slayer Episodes

We were talking about Buffy some time ago when Clo decided to rewatch the show. Kal send me a link of some  Buffy post– I don’t remember what it was about anymore tbh but anyway I suddenly got idea of writing this post.

Here’s a list of ten episodes I love from one of my all time favorite shows. This post contains spoilers.


10. Bargaining (6×01-6×02)

“”Is… this hell?”

Buffy’s friends bring her back from the dead and don’t even check if they succeeded, so she had to get herself out from her casket. It’s interesting to see Buffy get from confused to realizing that she’s back and feeling like she’s in hell instead of being grateful to her friends.

9. Him (7×06)

“No guy is worth your life, not ever.”

This was such a hilarious episode for me. Everyone (including Buffy, Dawn, Anya and Willow) were falling for this high school kid and doing stupid things like wanting to change him into a girl, trying to kill herself for him, robbing a bank and trying to kill a principle.

*insert a gif about Buffy trying to kill principal Woods and Spike trying to stop her while principal has no idea what’s happening outside of his office here*

8. Fool For Love (5×07)

“I can still see her, floating all around you! Laughing! Why? Why won’t you push her away?”

Buffy saw that she’s not invincible in this episode. She can die like all the slayers before her. Buffy searched information about their deaths but watchers didn’t write the details down, so she decides to ask the only person who she knows that have killed slayers; Spike.

I loved all the flashbacks this episode had with Spike and William. We got so many answers: What was he like as a human? How did he kill slayers? How was he with Darla and Angel? Why did Drusilla cheat on him?

Also Spike going to Buffy’s house to kill her but instead he comforts her? AWW

7. Life Serial (6×05)

“Life sucks! And, look at me. Look at stupid Buffy, too dumb for college, and freak Buffy, too strong for construction work. And my job at the magic shop? I was bored to tears even before the hour that wouldn’t end. And the only person that I can even stand to be around is this neutered vampire who cheats at kitten poker.”

Season six had the worst ‘evil’ ever but I did find this episode funny because of what the trio did to Buffy. I enjoyed the fight with mummy hand and Buffy getting drunk with Spike. Let’s not forget about Spike cheating at kitten poker.

6. Who Are You (4×16)

“‘Cause I can do anything I want, and instead I choose to pout and whine and feel the burden of Slayerness? I mean, I could be rich. I could be famous. I could have anything. Anyone. Even you, Spike. I could ride you at a gallop until your legs buckled and your eyes rolled up. I’ve got muscles you’ve never even dreamed of. I could squeeze you until you popped like warm champagne, and you would beg me to hurt you just a little bit more. And you know why I don’t?…Because it’s wrong.”

Episode where Buffy and Faith shift bodies. Do I need to say more? I can’t tell you how much I loved that scene when Faith in Buffy’s body met Spike and realized that he’s “neutralized”.
5. School Hard (2×04)

“You think you can fool me?! You were my sire, man! You were my… Yoda!”

Is it a surprise that the first episode Spike appeared is in this list? I just love all the Spuffy content we got in this episode even though Spike tried to kill her.

While Spike and Buffy is my OTP I also love Spike and Drusilla in the early season two.

4. The Body (5×16)

“But I don’t understand! I don’t understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she’s, there’s just a body, and I don’t understand why she just can’t get back in it and not be dead anymore! It’s stupid! It’s mortal and stupid! And, and Xander’s crying and not talking, and, and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she’ll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why.”

I love this Anya quote so much. I have never lost anybody like Buffy lost her mother but this episode was so touching. All the acting was just so perfect and this episode still makes me cry.
3. Becoming, Pt 1 and 2 (2×21 and 2×22)

“Now that’s everything, huh? No weapons… No friends…No hope. Take all that away… and what’s left?”

“Me.”

This is by far my favorite episode(s) in season 2. I’m not even talking about Spuffy working together for the first time. I mean Buffy had to ran from police, tell her mother about herself and get kinda kicked out from her house because she wanted to save the world– and she had to send her boyfriend to hell.

Also all the flashbacks– I can’t forget the flashbacks about what Angel was like as a human, how he was turned and what a stalker he was when Buffy was only 15- years old girl… licking a lollipop.

2. Once More, With Feeling (6×07)

“Bunnies aren’t just cute like everybody supposes, They got them hoppy legs and twitchy little noses, And whats with all the carrots? What do they need such good eyesight for anyway? Bunnies, Bunnies, it must be bunnies! …. Or maybe midgets?”

I usually make my friends watch this episode at least once in their life. It’s a musical so why not?

I love the songs and it has the first real kiss between Spike and Buffy. Also that revealed thing to Buffy’s friends.

1. Something Blue (4×09)

Buffy: Spike and I are getting married!
Xander: How? What? How?
Giles: Three excellent questions.

Where do I even start? Buffy giving Spike blood in a librarian mug and teasing him about her neck? This is also the episode that kinda started Willow doing spells wrong and did I mention Spike and Buffy were engaged?

Can I just rewatch this episode for eternity?
