Tara Maclay: Uh, sex poodle?
Anya: Yeah, why?
Tara Maclay: Um, I'm not sure you should say 'sex poodle' in your vows.

Seriously...where the hell did Xanders bravery go?
7 September 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

After all the things Xander has done through this show, and after all the problems he has had with his parents, it would have been SO good to see him stand up to his family's way of behaving and assert himself as a strong, loving family man. Instead he's turned into a wimp. I wish that they just let them elope and find their own piece of heaven. Schmaltsy maybe, but some of the scobbies deserve happiness.

Just imagine how powerful a support he and Anya could have been to Buffy. Their stable and unprejudiced love is exactly what she needs. Instead the entire Scooby gang seem to be doomed to eternal misery.

With this and "Normal Again" every character seem out of character. And it's really getting rather annoying to watch.
