Ladyghosts of TV Past: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Episode 2.20, “Go Fish” | Persephone Magazine

Let’s look at the last 4 episodes of this season:

I Only Have Eyes for You

Go Fish

Becoming (part 1)

Becoming (part 2)

One of these things is not like the others, and I’m sorry to say “Go Fish,” you are the odd man out. Like last week’s ‘I Only Have Eyes for You,’ this is also a monster of the week episode, but it lacks the emotional heft and thematic tie-ins that made “Eyes” such a fantastic entry into the canon. What “Fish” brings to the table is Xander in a Speedo and a surprising number of references to sexual assault.
