Superstar (Jane Espenson)
I enjoyed this episode a lot except for the last leaden minutes but I haven't much to say about it.
Jonathan says watch out for southpaws but this may have been the proof the Scoobies needed: he isn’t one. And he may not know how to deal with his own inadequacies but he does give Buffy and Riley sound advice.
The scenes with Anya being a metaphor-for-autism are classic: "Oh you're still here. That's nice." and later: "Stop with the shrimp I am trying to do something here!"
"Xander, don't speak Latin in front of the books."
"Did anyone else feel way too tall? I felt way too tall."
