OK, so what exactly do people have against this episode?

While I agree season 7 in general is weak compared to Buffy at its height (say season 3 through 6 maybe, but especially 3), I think episodes like Get It Done is an example where season 7 shines. My reason being that Buffy is always best when it's about character, not so much the Big Bad stuff. It's more about how characters "deal."

And how characters deal is what this episode is all about.

Of particular interest (and what doesn't seem get much notice in these reviews) is Spike having to face through Principal Wood the tragic outcome, face of grief and revenge, from survivor of one of vampire Spike's "greatest achievements." Something that Whedon must have been setting up ever since we first saw the flashback in the subway where we see how Spike got his leather coat.

On its own, this makes the tension of this episode worth it all by itself.
