BEAUTY AND THE BEASTS

THE PLOT:

It's again the night of the full moon cycle and even though Oz hasn't been fully transformed, he's extremely dangerous. Xander falls asleep during a watch not noticing the widow is open. A body is found in the woods, mauled to death. Has Oz escaped and killed. That's what they are afraid of.

But during the course of the investigation Buffy finds a half crazy Angel in the woods who is more animal then man. He subdues him, but now fears it was Angel who killed the teen. The truth is nothing any of them can concieve. Buffy's new boyfriend has a childhood friend Pete and his girl Debbie. Pete has taken a forula to make him more of a man for Debbie.

But all the formula did was turn him into a jelious murderous monster. Can Buffy find the truth and take down this Hyde?

THE OPINION:

It looks like they went cheap on Oz-Wolf. The whole not quite the full moon doesn't fly with me. Anyway, the Pete character is cool and the transformation works. But it does get a bit girl and LIFETIME channel with the boyfriend abuse. But that's minor.
