The Demon from Outer Space
3 October 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While Buffy and Dawn stay with Joyce in the hospital, Giles, Willow and Xander patrol the cemetery chasing vampires and Riley continues in his process of transformation in a vampire. Later, while watching the stars, Tara and Willow see a meteor crashing nearby Sunnydale. The Scooby group realizes that a demon called Queller has just landed on Earth. Joyce returns home since her surgery will occur only two days after, and the Queller arrives in the hospital attacking crazy people. Due to the compression of the tumor to her brain, Joyce acts strange having hallucinations, but she also sees the truth about Dawn and makes Buffy promise that she will take care of Dawn if she dies in the surgery. When the Queller arrives at Joyce's home chasing her, Buffy fights with it to save Joyce and Dawn.

In this episode, a demon with appearance of an insect is summoned by Ben to destroy the people that Glory sucked the brain, but his motives are not disclosed. Dawn is still an annoying character, and Willow gives the best lines of the episode with her tiny, young, woman and Jewish Santa Claus. Spike, as usual, is also hilarious snooping into Buffy's house fool for love for her, being startled with her presence. I am curious with the behavior of Riley, being constantly bitten and sucked by female vampires, and who is Ben. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Ouvindo o Medo" ("Listening to the Fear")
