  • Buffy's world falls apart.

    Yikes. Even having watched it all so many times before it always gets me.
    I always hope that this time Jenny Calendar will make.
    I always hope that this time, Buffy won't fall for Angel's ploy.


    The scene with her running through the halls of the school, in that blue coat with the voice over, "Bottom line is even if you see 'em comin' you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does... So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are..."

    Also, the starting off with Darla telling Angel "Close your eyes." and ending with Buffy telling him the same thing.

    Good writing this show, even though I have procrastinated for days to not have to watch Becoming 1 & 2 because it is hard to see.
