Many would say that the second series of BtVS is the most important and well-written. I would be inclined to agree in many ways - the season contains significant story arcs and events which are often mentioned in later seasons. The major events of this season are, obviously, the entry of Spike and Drusilla, Kendra, Ms Calendar; and the whole Angel thing which is, in my opinion, the most important storyline in Buffy history. Minor storylines are also introduced which become of more relevance in later seasons: Willow dabbles with Wicca, Xander starts to move on from Buffy and Giles is shown to feel human emotions! (No offence Giles!)
As well as being important for the serious fan's collection, Season 2 is great for the casual viewer as it provides simple entertainment as well as th plotlines, something which became more lax in the later seasons as the plot took over entirely. Brilliant stand-alone episodes include "Halloween", "The Dark Age" and "Bad Eggs".
The season is beautifully written, especially the final Buffy/Angel face-off which is very poignant and moving. A brilliant season of drama, action, comedy, sci-fi and great all-round entertainment!

Season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is quite possibly the best season of the bunch. While the series peters off rather a lot during its final two years the first few seasons truly remain emotionally resonant, beautiful, complicated and well written metaphors for the emotional trials of becoming an adult. Season 2 is by definition, where things get darker and more complex, this was the season that really made Buffy an unpredictably smart series. The beginning of the year starts off a little unsteady with several episodes that aren't really all that well formed. Yet despite a few shaky plots these early stories contain a lot of interaction between the main characters -- fun moments that really give the show its character-driven quality. The latter half of the season contains the best arc ever conceived in Buffyverse history with the emergence of Angelus. The season opens with 'When She Was Bad' which deals with the fallout of Buffy's momentary death in the previous year one finale; this episode, whilst not my favourite is appropriately handled and sees Buffy acting rather out of character after returning from her summer away from Sunnydale. The preceding episodes are a fun affair and help the viewer to settle back into the rhythm of the series with various episodes focusing upon certain characters. The 'Big Bads' of the season appear early on and come in the form of Drusilla and Spike, the former being a rather off-her-rocker vampire and the latter a bleached, leather wearing, cocky undead Englishman! As villains they are a lot of fun and help to shape season 2 as something unique and well constructed. However, come the end of the year things are considerably shaken up in terms of 'the Big Bads', with the appearance of Angelus.Read more ›

After a surprisingly successful first season, Buffy returned for a second season with a bigger budget, well established characters, an army of fans, and many surprises.
With the second full season beginning (22 episodes compared to season 1's 12), Mutant Enemy was able to begin to develop long running plot developments which form a cohesive and intricate story, in contrast to the equally brilliant but more stand alone plots of the first season.
Throughout the year there are all the usual monster battles with vampires, demons, werewolves and ghosts caused by the Hellmouth beneath Sunnydale High, but more interesting were the character developments throughout the season. Buffy and Angel's relationship became more serious whilst Xander found a connection with a very unlikely person- Cordelia! Willow also found love with Oz, a guitar playing werewolf. Even Giles managed to develop a relationship with Jenny Calendar, a fiesty technopagan.
However, the third episode also features the introduction of two of the most memorable villains ever, the British vampires Spike and Drusilla, who ended up in almost every season of Buffy (and its spin off show, Angel) after being kept in the show due to popular demand. Often it was actually Spike who provided a lot of humor to balance the often overwhelming instances of teenaged angst, whilst still posing a menacing threat to the slayer. When a tragic turn of events turns Angel back into the soulless vampire he was before he was given a soul, Buffy faces one of the most difficult battles of her short career as a slayer.

The second season starts with Buffy back in Sunnydale after spending the summer with her Dad in LA. She is understandably in a bit of a mood seeing as last year she died, found out her boyfriend was a vampire and had to put up with Principal Snyder coming in to her life. Oh boy, wait til she hears what this season has in store for her.

This year has, in my mind, the best season-long arc and big bad out of the whole series. After finally admitting how much she loves Angel and losing her virginity to him, whoops he's all of a sudden perfectly happy and loses his soul, sending him back to being Bad Angelus.

What fun David Boreanaz has playing Angelus! Also this season sees the introduction of Spike and Drusilla as well as Seth Green as Oz.

This season is much darker than the first, there is even a death among the good guys. However, it also has some great comedy episodes like the Xander-centric Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.

The 2 part season finale is heartbreaking. I've saw these about a dozen times and I do cry every single time. This is a very strong season and a massive improvement on the first.

One final point to note. Freeze frame for the episode Go Fish when Xander walks out in his Speedos (woo!)
