At present, Gellar is still acting, although she’s additionally grow to be a mom to 2 youngsters with actor Freddie Prinze Jr. and runs an organization. She nonetheless seems to be again on the pivotal position fondly and helps a Buffy reboot. Gellar has even discovered the character to have many relatable moments that she’s referenced throughout the coronavirus pandemic. See for your self.
No promenade for Buffy
The Buffy Season 1 finale is titled “Prophecy Woman.” In it, Buffy desperately needs to go to the promenade like another highschool scholar. However as a substitute, she has to meet her duties because the slayer and tackle the season’s “massive unhealthy,” the Grasp.
Gellar channeled her character’s look from practically 23 years in the past, donning what seems to be the identical (or a really comparable) white robe, in addition to the leather-based jacket she places on for battle. “All dressed up and nowhere to go,” she captioned it. For highschool college students who’re lacking their very own proms, this can be a nice message about benefiting from the scenario.
Typically you simply want cry
As Gellar is, like many mother and father, homeschooling her kids proper now, she’s struggling a bit. And he or she’s associated her frustration again to a few the uncommon moments from the present during which Buffy — who’s, in any case, human — broke down.
The latest gif, above, is from the season 5 episode “Triangle.” In it, Buffy is reeling from her breakup with Riley, and cries whereas telling her pals how comfortable she is for them in their very own relationships. The opposite, under, is from “Lifeless Issues” in season 6. Buffy cries to Tara (Amber Benson) as she confesses that she’s been sleeping with Spike (James Marsters).
Buffy’s tragic bangs
One other frustration we are able to all relate to is just not having the ability to get a haircut throughout this time. Whereas it’s not value breaking the stay-at-home orders, Gellar’s ideas of reducing her personal hair have been stalled by the above picture of her less-than-flattering bangs within the season three episode “Amends.” They have been solely current for the one episode however, nonetheless, are a startling reminder to avoid the scissors.
When will issues be ‘Regular Once more’?
Most conversations lately finish with the concept that the world should return to “regular.” However what’s that, precisely? Gellar shared a gif of Buffy upset throughout the season 6 episode “Regular Once more,” during which the slayer faces a really distinctive battle.
Within the episode, after preventing a demon, Buffy finds herself “waking up” in a world the place she’s in an insane asylum, and every part she is aware of to be true is a delusion. The tip sees her return to “her world,” however the message is obvious: What’s “regular” is all relative.
The yummy sushi pajamas

In our actuality, nonetheless, this apocalyptic occasion is handled by staying residence in our pajamas (ala the season four episode “Goodbye Iowa”) slightly than grabbing a denim jacket and a supernatural weapon (as seen within the ultimate two episodes, “Finish of Days” and “Chosen”). Typically, the yummy sushi chooses you. So keep residence and rewatch Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
