Behind The Scenes: The Making Of “Veep-Stakes”

Me: Hey, who was the Big Bad in the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

The Queen: What?

M: I’m writing something for the yeti and I’ve trying to remember who the main villian was in the first season of Buffy.

Q: Dracula?

M: No, although she did meet Dracula once. That’s who I’ve currently got in the post, but I thought it might be funnier if I used the name of the head bad guy in the first season.

Q: The Ubervamp?

M: No, he was in the last season.

Q: It was some super vampire guy.

M: Right. And he had a name.

{pause}

Q: Fred?

M: So, you’re bored of this conversation, is that what you’re saying?

Q: Pretty much.
