Xander: I have no idea.
Dawn Summers: What?
Xander: I don't know, okay? I can't even run away well, and that's something I'm ususally good at.
Dawn Summers: Maybe we should go back and help.
Xander: Yeah, 'cause I've been such big help already.Standing around like a monkey while Buffy gets shot. Tara's dead and Willow's... losing...
Dawn Summers: Yeah, well feeling sorry for yourself isn't helping either, Xander, okay?

simply awful..
9 December 2011 | by (boston) – See all my reviews

Somehow after "Once more with Feeling" this show not so much ran off a cliff and sank in the mud. In theory this should have a fantastic season, as it had years of set up. Willow as dark phoenix had some merit, but they took too long with too many episodes of gloom and bad writing to get to he point.

The dialog between Willow and Giles is a good example of this.

Willow, overflowing with pain, having found an addiction to have the love of her life killed senselessly, standing before him with endless rage, is told "I'm sorry about Tara" in the most bland uninterested voice as if they were discussing toast. I remember watching, and when Willow started to slap Buffy around, realizing that I was on the villains side.
