5. Doublemeat Palace (Season 6, episode 12)
‘Doublemeat Palace’ is the episode that sees Buffy get a boring job at the Doublemeat Palace- a fast food restaurant that she quickly learns is hiding a big secret. With the disappearance of employees and further strange events, Buffy begins to question what the real secret ingredient they use in their burgers is. The episode is pretty weird and gets even weirder when we see a creepy old lady with a giant worm demon that emerges from the top of her head. Despite the episode’s laughable villain, I have to admit that I did like how the writers explored the financial difficulties Buffy is under, alongside the stress of being both the Slayer and the girl who has to provide for her sister.
