30 Day Buffy Challenge - DAY 29
EPISODE YOU HATE THAT EVERYONE ELSE LOVES: S7xE13 “The Killer In Me”
This episode has it’s good moments, but I just can’t bring myself to love it like most Willow fans do. It’s complicated.
First off, how aggressively Kennedy pursues Willow annoys me, but that’s beside the point. I’ve heard a lot of Tara fans even like this episode, because it shows just how in love with her Willow still is, and how guilty she still feels. Yeah ok, I get that. But there’s the whole thing with “Warren’s Personality” coming through her, making her say things she wouldn’t (like above) but I honestly think that if those thoughts weren’t in her mind in the first place, she would have never said them. Then, suddenly, when Kennedy kisses her (and there’s the whole “magic is just like fairytales” line that makes me wanna punch Kennedy in the mouth) then BAM Tara is never mentioned again for the rest of the series (until the comics).
I just don’t like how that scene was handled, and just can’t get myself to like this episode no matter how much the film buff in me appreciates how hard it must have been to film. Haha.
