Just watched Hush and the episode after it. It is not, as I had heard, a stand-alone episode. It advances other story lines, so you definitely can't just skip Hush and continue on with other episodes. Glad I didn't listen to that advice. Anyway, awesome episode, and the ending was perfect. The one after it was decent, as well, mostly for the interesting developments of the [censored]/Buffy story line (oh, and the Spike bit is cool, too).

I think I might watch some more. Came down here to check email, and my roommate was eating pasta with sauce, and the sauce smells really good. Not terribly hungry, since I've been finishing off the brownies I made last night. But I should probably eat something else at some point tonight.

Who told you to skip Hush?

I still think it is a stand alone episode. Yes, it advances storylines (notably Tara and Willow and Riley and Buffy), but you can see it without having seen any other episodes and still understand the plot and enjoy.

I think maybe someone heard "stand alone episode" and thought it could be completely separated from the rest, which, obviously, it can't.

Hush is the episode you show to non-buffy people to turn them--to sire them so to speak...

Re: evil laughter

For me (as a viewer) it was "Once More With Feeling" (which elphie
has also used, as a pusher).

Not to take away from the fact that Hush is right up there as one of
the Best. Buffies. *Ev-ar*. But it does move the plot along in a big

(who re-watched "Bad Girls" with BZ last night)

P.S.: Season 5 (the one that we *haven't* seen) comes out on DVD soon,
doesn't it?

I saw Hush at a friend's house this summer, bringing the total number of Buffy eps I've seen to maybe four. Enjoyed it a lot. Noticed a theme in the pre-silence setup: every single character was either having or objecting to talking-too-much issues! Very cool to see the different ways those dynamics then flipped around.

The ending was also excellent -- silence is very different when you're *able* to speak, but don't.
