This week on Buffy and the Art of Story – Amends (Season 3 Episode 10 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
This podcast episode talks about:
(1) is this a Christmas Carol & series pilot for Angel? (2) challenges identifying the protagonist; (3) use of flashbacks and dreams; (4) a Deus Ex Machina ending; and (5) very clear subplots plot turns.
As always, the discussion is spoiler-free, except at the end (with plenty of warning).
Last Episode: The Wish
Next Up: Gingerbread
Amends was written and directed by Joss Whedon.
