Storyline

After killing Warren, Dark Willow tries to track-down Andrew and Jonathan to kill them, which prompts Buffy to rescue them from their jail cell and hide them at the Magic Shop thus putting herself in the unlikely (and unlikable to both her friends and the viewers) role of nerd/villain protector since Buffy is the only one who believes it's wrong to kills humans regardless of how evil or murderous they are. Meanwhile in Africa, Spike battles against the first of several foes to earn the return of his soul. Written by spyk_

A hopeless flaw.
7 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This for me was the least engaging of the series finals. The world is endangered again. Okay, they did that in season 1, 2, 3 . . . and I guess that's a hard one to top every time.

My main problem, though, is with making Willow the agent of the Apocalypse. Not that I think Willow was too nice to do it. I know this is fantasy and all, but am I supposed to believe that getting powerful enough to destroy the universe takes less time than getting your Bachelors' Degree? Without any "gift" like Buffy's or grant from something powerful? I accept the Buffy fantasy overall, but if this were true, somebody would have destroyed it by the 10th century, by accident. Even if Willow "stole" the power late in the show, she did it magically, with little effort, and as a witch with only six years experience this was just unbelievable. I must have missed the episode where Willow is sucked into a time-slow dimension and studies magic for a thousand years without the Scoobies knowing. It would have fixed this whole thing.

Well, not completely. There were other flaws less glaring. I thought it was unintended irony that Xander would become the heavy-handed Christ figure in this (the carpenter reference must not have been lost even on Xander) after earlier arguing why they shouldn't save Warren.

Which brings up another problem: Buffy's moral arguments all through this sound very thin and trite. When she fights Willow, she has nothing interesting say. The dialog then is just very flat, so atypical of this show. Not only did Willow kick her ass, but she won the argument, too.

There are a few good parts. Giles' entrance for one. Anya's knowledge and teleporting around does add a dimension here and makes her good for something. The show has other things to recommend it.

But it just wasn't a very good story idea.
