My Top 50 Buffy Episodes Part 7

And here's Part 7 folks

16: Passion (Season 2, Episode 17)

If you're going to turn Angel into thr Big Bad for the second season, then at some point he was going to have to do something truly awful (and trying to end the world on this show doesn't count). Having him kill Jenny Calender was far the most shocking he's ever done as Angelus during Season 2.

17: Fool For Love (Season 5, Episode 7)

Crossed over with the Angel episode Darla, this was without a doubt the best crossover story the two series ever did and this one gave us a nice look into Spike's penchant for slayer slaying while he became more and more obsessed with Buffy.

18: Smashed (Season 6, Episode 9)

You know the drill - there's only so much teasing you can do and while I'm not a Buffy/Spike shipper, I will admit that Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Marsters do have good chemistry together. And if that bored you, there's always Amy's bad influence on Willow as well.

19: Surprise (Season 2, Episode 13)

There are plenty of things you might want for your birthday but dreams of your boyfriend dying and Spike and Drusilla wrecking havoc ain't two of them. It also doesn't help that by the end of this episode, Angel's reverted to his original form.

20: Angel (Season 1, Episode 7)

When you spend half the season building Angel up as a mystery man, it is really shocking that he turned out to be a good vampire? In retrospect, not really but this doesn't lessen the reveal in any way and it was nice to have something on Darla before she got staked.

All terrific episodes. Lots of Angel centric ones in this part of the list, but deservedly so as his Angelus arc was so good.

Smashed is a good episode but lets face it only memorable for the Buffy Spike sex scene!! it was a pretty memorable scene though, the two actors rocked it.

I didn't realise how all Angel based they were but there were some gems there.
