New Rules, part three
Xander and Dawn get Dracula to help the gang with the new vampires. Dracula is camp, Andrew bores and nobody feels any obligation to stake Dracula which is a shame as he betrays them. Buffy is an idiot, Spike bores and there are plot contradictions about magic. Xander and Dawn discuss their participation in sexual roleplay in public. Willow flies, Giles acts as an approximation of a 12 year old boy instead of someone who died and came back. Dracula does bad things (duh) and has a concordat with Xander. Dawn’s unease with Xander leads to trouble. Co-written by Nicolas Brendon, season 10 is finally interesting amidst the cacophony of Buffyspeak.
