I have watched this episode about 10 times in the past few years and yet, I'm still always shocked again. How could they just throw Buffy out?
I mean, they have a point: girls died, Xander lost his eye and Buffy is not even the only slayer. But even if they've lost girls, Buffy was doing what she needed to do. Her job. The Scoobys always stood up for her and now they're ambushing her like that. AND then Dawn tells Buffy to leave!??! 8-O I still can't believe it. Without Buffy, they would all be long dead - and now they're pulling that crap on her. The potentials, okay, they just don't know any better... but the others? And how can Anya dare to get involved? I like her, but she's being so selfish. She's just there because it's the safest place while she can't shut her mouth about Buffy not being her friend. She's stupid. They all are. They're gonna see where it leads them. They'll regret sending them away!
