Episode 82 - Disharmony / Dead End / Belonging (feat. Melanie Scala)

7Aug

What initially seemed like a pretty vague thematic grouping of episodes to discuss winds up proving to have some metaphorical meat on its bones. Returning friend Melanie Scala helps me find the significance of episodes 217, “Disharmony” and 218, “Dead End” beyond just the twin sides of the “where do we go from here” coin. In the former, a typically vacuous Harmony reconnects with Cordelia, somehow managing to conceal her newfound vampirism, and along the way maybe(?) helps the gang begin the process of figuring out what the new group dynamic will be. In the latter, Lindsey gets an evil hand and teams up with Angel to blow up the body shop, and along the way maybe(?) helps the gang continue the process of figuring out what the new group dynamic will be.

 

And then episode 219, “Belonging,” nominally just a prologue to the three episode finale arc we’re discussing next time, actually ramps up the “what IS our new dynamic” angst, and gives us our first tentative introduction to our beloved Winifred “Fred” Burkle.

 

BONUS: an inappropriately long tangent about the science of brushing your teeth. You’re welcome.

 

NEXT: the aforementioned three-episode finale arc! South-of-the-border friend and fan Johnny Ho takes a long, strange trip with me as we journey to Pylea and wrap up the season with episodes 220, “Over the Rainbow,” 221, “Through the Looking Glass,” and 222, “There’s No Place Like Plrtz Glrb.”
