Fucl! I got it...

Yeah, you're probably bored now, but the rest of that thread I was looking for in the last post just hit me like a load of bricks.



Didja wonder where the killer in Buffy was this episode? I did, briefly. And just this minute, I realized that I know just where it was. The soldier boys said it. "All decisions regarding Hostile 17 are in your hands</>. The killer in Buffy is in her hands. And to get all season 4ish about it, she's manus, the hands. And it's her hands, her touch, that can save him or cut him loose. Woohoo! I love it when a thread of logic closes itself for me :-)

Wank or not, I shall sleep peacefully now.

Whoa. And I was almost going to get into 'manus' in my last reply. Freaky! And also, I agree. *g*

And that section of Restless is about Buffy being cut off and alone, which is why she tells Tara that she's never going to use her hands. Good stuff...

Great catch, Chris . . . I certainly hadn't been able to come up with anything for how the title related to Buffy. Since, after all, it's All.About.Buffy. :-)

Oh, I love this! If I look at the episode this way it makes more sense. I had a couple of problems with the ep but I think, if I re-watch with this in mind, I'm going to end up enjoying it even more.

Re:
Oh wow, that's pretty cool. I really did enjoy this episode, and it's held up very, very well on rewatching.

Hmmm. I'll have to re-watch this ep. I was very disappointed in it, and the one before. KiM seemed disjointed and lifeless to me. I just couldn't find the energy between the characters, even, or perhaps, especially, Spike and Buffy. But there were some major distractions happening during the show in my household. So, with your insights in mind, I'll take another look. I love your thoughts re touch, the power of physicality, and reality.
