BtVS 8.16

I finally got to reading this tonight.

Time of Your Life, Part 1 The Return of FRAY

towards commented a few days ago, "I just read the latest Buffy comic.. and all I have to say is.. WTF. Season 8 is starting to read like crackfic for me lately. Anyone agree?"

I like centaur!Dawn, but yeah, I can see that sentiment.

I think I was more okay with horny!Xander than with ditzy!Buffy. I'm generally not a fan of any character being played for easy laughs or easy anything, though. (And dude, this is a Joss Whedon script, so I can't even blame anyone else.)

     I did appreciate this bit:
Kennedy: How hot am I for teacher right now?
Buffy: You know she took over the computer-science class at Sunnydale? Wasn't even a senior. // My will...
Kennedy: Hey, grubby paws off, lez-faux.
Buffy: What? What have you--Who said I--
Kennedy: I love that you're in your experimental phase--'cause I really kinda thought you were a 'phobe--but you put the moves on Red and I'll kill you like a chicken.
Buffy: Hamnoo?

Dawn: I don't feel like a majestic creature of legend. I feel like a freak.
