I thought what Gwen did was AWESOME! But what happened to her family is seriously fucked up. I also liked how the 'obvious' bad guy turned out to NOT be the bad guy. I hope we find out what was going on in China. Dude killing himself was just sick.
This episode was really....visceral. I mean, I'm used to blood and guts, but both the finger in the wound thing and the choking scenes...yikes!
I'm really unsure as to how I feel about this season of TW. It feels like it's taking a long time to get going...
Yeah, not to mention the whole idea of burning people alive and people accepting the idea as necessary because the government/media tells them to.
Which is worse? The flesh on flesh murder or the aseptic murder of the burn modules.
Jenny/The First: Hmm. You think you can fight me? I'm not a demon, little girl. I am something that you can't even conceive. The First Evil. Beyond sin, beyond death. I am the thing the darkness fears. You'll never see me, but I am everywhere. Every being, every thought, every drop of hate.
BUFFY: (loses her patience) Alright, I get it. You're evil. Do we have to chat about it all day?

I think it packs so much of a punch because of what we've seen humanity do. The minute we feel can classify something as 'other' then we start feeling like we can do any number of things because the victims aren't 'human'.
