FEATURE: Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Out Of My Mind

Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Buffy’s somehow acquired a sister. She’s also decided to train harder, study better and generally become a more successful Slayer. Spike’s chip is still in his head and he still plans on defeating Buffy somehow.Holy foreshadowing, Batman!Seriously, there is so much of it in this episode and I’m finding it quite baffling that I barely remember it as a result of this fact. Sure, I remember the major developments like Spike realising he’s in love with Buffy and Joyce starting to get sick (oh dear god), but the Riley stuff? Not a jot. Let’s…

Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Buffy, Willow, Xander and Giles magically combined to take down Adam and the Initiative, invoking the power of the First Slayer to do so. Usually this is the point of the review where I give you all a little plot breakdown to remind you of what goes on in the episode. It might not be all the details, but just enough to jog your memory. For Restless, there’s not really a whole lot of plot to sum up; Buffy, Willow, Xander and Giles settle in for a night of movies after they take down the…
