The Potentials get some field training from General Buffy and her trusty hound Spike. Like all gifted teens, Dawn learns a harsh lesson about being pretty normal after all. The Buffy Boys celebrate mundanity in S07E12 "Potential".
Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:
- Transmuting Teen Self-Discovery: Dawn's burgeoning identity in the kiln of Slayer-adjacent angst
- Reinscribing before the Fall - Buffy's imitation of a Watcher as a step to a new paradigm
- The Demon/Gay intersectional nightlife axis - are the Potentials giving hen party vibes?
- "They're demons! It's a demon bar. It's like a gay bar, only with demons"
