Dead Man's Party, season 3
In season 6, Jonathon teamed up with Warren and Andrew to become Buffy's arch nemesis-es. Officially called The Trio, they were also referred to as the Three Nerds, and were the Big Bad of season 6 (that is, until Willow went dark). Returning in season 7, Jonathon was killed by his friend Andrew as part of a ritual to open the hellmouth. The ritual didn't work, but Jonathon was still dead.
Jonathon was the regular face-in-the-crowd for many years on Buffy. I enjoyed the moments he got to "shine", but he was also good in the one-liner appearances, like when he admitted to peeing in the pool or went to the library to borrow out books. Although I was glad to see more of him in season 6, I didn't like that he went evil. It was a weak, not-very-successful-evil, but it was still evil. I think Jonathon deserved better than that, particularly the way it ended. Poor Jonathon.
