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).

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.
