Day #22: Best Xander-centric episode

I find it more than a little strange that we get asked to name the best Spike, Willow and Xander episodes, but not Buffy, Giles or Angel - maybe that's just me, but there you go.

I think the best Xander-centric episode is 'Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered' from Season Two.

Poor, silly Xander. All he wants is a spell put on Cordy to make her want him desperately so that he could break up with her. However, instead he ends up with the entire female population of Sunnydale being besotted by him and Cordy not caring about him at all.

It's just a prime example of Xander and how everything does seem to go wrong for him - he should know better than to dabble in such things. It was such an amusing, at times utterly hilarious, episode. All those girls and women including Jenny and Joyce after Xander - and poor Buffy being turned into a rat.

It's such a fun episode.
