Satanic panic clutches the pearls of Sunnydale's suggestible parental population! When Joyce finds two ritually murdered children the town turns just a lil fascist against witches, slayers and other queer allegories. Who Watches The Watcher Watchers? The Buffy Boys do in S03E11 "Gingerbread".
Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:
- Black nail polish and boy witches: Magic as metaphor for gender defiant transgression
- Selective memory and mass delusion; resisting dark forces by choosing the burden of awareness
- Joyce's pitch perfect Anita Bryant impersonation
- The pervasive and illiterate terror of deep European folklore
- "Now, let's be clear. The brain damage happened before I hit you"
