The battle to save humanity comes to a boiling point in the finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8!

War. It’s messy, and Buffy knows it. As the Slaver army crumbles against an endless swarm of demons, Buffy joins forces with the US military to put an end to her greatest enemy to date—the mysterious Twilight, who will see this world end to give birth to another.

Spike and Buffy reunite and take the fight closer to home, where everything and everyone will change.

Okay, maybe the battle wasn’t as over as I had thought. There’s lots of complicated stuff going on, with alien-like tentacled and blobby demons, and lots of fighting. It all seems to get a bit out of control, and the coda from Whedon suggests he thought so too, given that Season 9 will return more to its roots.

Joss Whedon, Andrew Chambliss, Scott Allie, Georges Jeanty, Cliff Richards.
