Child quote (and Buffy)

I watched the Buffy episode "The Prom" (season 3) during breakfast this morning, while playing with my son. When Angel has his dream sequence about marrying Buffy, my son looked at her in her big poofy veil and low-cut wedding dress, and said grinning, "She's not dressed yet! She's just got a towel on her head."

As a side note, I get misty when the Class of '99 presents her with the Class Protector award. And how odd is it that it's Jonathan who presents it? Guess he has a tough few years between then and season 6, sufficient to change his mind about being on Buffy's side (well, mostly).

Hmm, I did, and he's seen them, but I don't recall any towel comments. Maybe I'll try again!

I was so disappointed in Jonathan for falling in with Warren and Andrew. Still, it's clear from his attempts to use magic to solve his problems in Superstar that he still has a lot of progress to make on the personal growth front.

It's too bad his arc ended how it did. He could have used a chance at redemption, like Andrew got.

The Buffy PTB have been asked about Jonathan's fate, and their answer was that they considered him already redeemed and that they'd killed him off because they felt that his character arc was over. They felt that Andrew, OTOH, had a longer way to go.

$0.02
Am I the only one who thinks Andrew doesn't deserve his shot at redemption? It always bothered me that he got away with murder and ended up a playboy-among-slayers as his reward.

Of course, I didn't like much of what went on with those characters. It always makes me a little sad to see villified geekdom...sort of feels like writers are dissing their fan base.

All that being said, I was quite glad to see Warren skinned. If I were Willow, I think I'd have a hard time feeling guilty over that.

That's too bad -- he had redeemed himself, but I would rather have seen him saved than Andrew. I had thought it was some sort of actor-availability issue that made them dump Jonathan and keep Andrew, but I guess not.

Well, the "Class Protector" award became ironic a few minutes later, didn't it, as a substantial proportion of the class got wiped out. That itself might have been the start of him changing his mind.

Heh, true. After graduation maybe some disillusionment set in.

That's actually one of the things that most bothers me about the Buffyverse: No one is ever saved. Any victory won today will be undone in next week's episode, or next season, or whenever the writers get around to it.

Too true to life, then?

Heh, exactly. Also a good writing move, though. If you tie everything up prettily in any one episode, you've given the viewers a reason to stop watching. Joss does sometimes go a bit out of his way to avoid a happy ending, though, especially for the couples in his series.

Yes, he seems to have couple issues, or happy-romance issues, to match his daddy issues. And yet he seems to have a happy enough marriage...

Like real life, but with more vampires.
