Have you given your thanks to the gods of social media today? Here's to hoping you did, because they have provided us with a Buffy the Vampire Slayer mini-reunion. It was full of magic, nostalgia, charity bracelets, etc. You know the drill by now.
This particular reunion took place between one former Buffy Summers, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and one former Rupert Giles, Anthony Stewart Head. According to Gellar, the watcher-slayer reunion was a surprise, and facilitated at least in part by Head's animal welfare organization Cool to Be Kind. I'll hold out hope that they also fit in a few hours of reminiscing and maybe a "Once More, With Feeling" or "Band Candy" rewatch.
Gellar and Head aren't the only Buffy alums who have been sharing their post-Buffy hangouts on social media sites — Emma Caulfield, who played ancient vengeance demon Anya Jenkins on Buffy, posted a pic last month featuring her, Gellar, and former Tara Maclay, Amber Benson.
I would like to encourage this cast to stage more reunions. Firefly held a big reunion for their tenth anniversary a couple years back — won't someone please just put the Buffy cast in a room together and film them talking for a few hours? Or at least, like, get Gellar to reenact that mini Buffy "resurrection" Joss Whedon drew a few weeks back?
