View Full Version : Favourite Buffy Season Finale?

I've been re-watching a lot of my Buffy DVD's and old taped episodes, and I was reminded of how many awesome season finales the show has had over its run. What would be your favourite of all the Buffy finales, and why?

I love them all, but my personal favourite would have to be Season 5's The Gift. I felt that it was a great climax to a really strong story arc, and I loved how Buffy finally realized that death being her gift didn't mean that she was just a killer, but that being a slayer meant putting her life on the line all the time.

A close second would be Becoming from Season 2.

yeah Season 5. I almost wished they ended the series like that.

No question. The Gift kills all of them. It doesn't hurt that season 5 was the best post H.S. season of the show.

I actually dig the final finale best of all.

I agree. I was being a huge nerd and watching the commentary for Chosen, and Whedon was saying how the episode was extremely hard to write, because he had initially crafted The Gift as the final episode of Buffy. So he had to go through the same motions of giving everyone their definitive character moment.

Which season was the one where she jumped off the thing to stop Glory?

That definately had my favorite penultimate episode:

"I'd like to test that theory"

Bad. Ass!

Season 5. No contest. Giles owned in that one scene. You know what I'm talking about.

I guess I have to agree with The Gift, but the Season 6 finale is a close second for me.

The Gift is my favorite season finale of any show ever. Just hearing the music from it has been known to make me tear up.

Season 7 gets my vote because it surprised me more than any other. I typically had a pretty good idea how they were going to defeat the "big bad" at the end of the other seasons, but I seriously had no clue on that one. The whole "activating all the potential slayers" bit was a stroke of genius one of those "hey, that was kind of obvious but I never thought of it" things.

I don't remember what season it was, but I think it was 5. When Buffy took a dive off the construction site to close that portal?

That one was freakin fantastic

Season 1 Prophecy Girl is my favorite. The Xander shootdown, him going to Angel for help. "I flunked the writen." All great stuff.

I gotta say I'm amazed at the love shown "the Gift" I thought it sucked.

But you hate everything post Season 1, so your opinion doesn't count. :grope:

Series 5, hands down, for the 'previously on buffy the vampire slayer' section alone!

5 seasons in 30 seconds... truly awesome!

I love seasons 2, 3, the first 7 of season 4 & the first 9 of season 7. I just love Buffy in a school atmosphere.

But there's only so much you can do with that...and actually have it work.

Hmmm... it's a toss-up between 2 and 5, but I have to go with 2.

SPOILERS DUMAS

The 2 year build up of the battle between Buffy and Angel, Spike's alliance with Buffy, Angel turning good at the last second, Buffy losing everything (her mom, her friends, her one true love)

Best television super-hero ever.

To do what? Figure out how to do the same boring shit every week?

No thanks.
