In Spiral (S5 E20 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Buffy and friends flee from Glory across the desert in a camper and the Knights of Byzantium follow. Along with the recap, this podcast episode focuses on:
(1) how Spiral weaves in questions about Buffy’s escape plan, Ben’s & Glory’s origins and more to keep viewers engaged; (2) revealing exposition through conflict between Ben and a minion versus the near monologue General Gregor gives; (3) small moments that foreshadow the shocking end of Spiral; and (4) cartoon imagery throughout the gang’s dealings with Glory and the Knights.
Plus an interview with Rachel Wharton from Kobo about the ways to promote books you publish through Kobo Writing Life.
Spoiler-free, except at the end (with plenty of warning).
