“I’m the thing that monsters have nightmares about.”Who is this Buffy anyway? And why is she so scary?
“I’m like a superhero or something.”Buffy is like a superhero. At first, she may seem like just a girl in high school, but she is actually one of a long line of “Chosen Ones”: young girls who are chosen to rid the world of vampires and other evil ilk. They are ruthless in this charge: highly skilled, highly trained, and unyielding. Well, except Buffy fell in love with a vampire (or two). (And this is loooong before that whole Bella-Edward thing too… You can tell because of how 90s the promotional photos are.) original movie as well, with Kristy Swanson as a different Buffy, or you can, as most Buffy fans, ignore it. It’s not really part of the canon. Be sure to check out the specifically Halloween episodes (Season 2 Episode 6: “Halloween”, Season 4 Episode 4: “Fear, Itself”, and Season 6 Episode 6: “All the Way”) and watch for a post all about Halloween episodes from a bunch of different shows later this month!
