Well, I guess I will have to do this eventually.  I have posted a lot of this stuff in the past before, but mostly in private.  Consider this incomplete.  I also have always wanted to post a thing like this but have always hesitated because I will surely come up with a better way to say it in the future.  However, I'm having a rough couple of days due to family issues and I guess if it helps to write this and post it it'll be okay to deal with it not being the best it could be.

I recently posted a slightly different version of this on Mark Field's excellent blog running through Buffy episodes and interpreting them.  His interpretations are very strongly Buffy-centric, which is why I think I disagree with him on aspects of his assessment of Two to Go/Grave, and which led me to write this.  He suggested I post it somewhere else, so, uh, here I am!

Because of pressing personal and fandom issues, I would request that commenters be kind (there is a lot of relate-y material here). I also may not respond to comments due to said issues or the like.

TW: uh, suicide, depression, family dysfunction, addiction, that type of thing.

In my recent post defending BtVS' season six, I mentioned that S6 references season two in several crucial ways.  For fun and profit I rewatched the Dark Willow eps just to pick up on some things.  And once again I got reminded of how much Two to Go and Grave reference Becoming, and what I think this means for the series as a whole.

And yes, apparently all I ever talk about with BtVS are season six and Becoming, why do you ask?
 
 
On the finales: spoilers; I think it's interesting )

In other news: MY GIRLFRIEND IS BACK IN CANADA TODAY!  She was teaching overseas.  It's all very exciting.

Predictably, I've been ducking out of engaging in any meaningful way in the actual debate du jour at Whedonesque (the neverending, kind of awesome Georges Jeanty interview thread--I mean the thread is kind of awesome, not the interview, which I haven't read), where [livejournal.com profile] 2maggie2 , [livejournal.com profile] angearia , [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42  and [livejournal.com profile] aycheb  among others are making great comments and duking it out.  An interesting poster--goingtowork--made some arguments about Buffy/Angel which are I think wrongheaded but others have skewered that; I responded though to his comments about season six (which is so clearly not what the thread is about, but ok) because I just can't help defend my poor baby of a season. Consider this post in lieu of interesting discussion.

In other Whedon comic news: apparently J-Mo (Jed Whedon & Marisa Tancharoen) have written an Epitaph-related Dollhouse comic.  "No," says Joss Whedon, "Dollhouse isn't a comic, it'll never be a comic," etc.  I am kind of lookin forward to it I guess--partly that, unlike season eight which I still have some hopes for that will no doubt soon be dashed, I've already disengaged myself from the idea of Dollhouse making total sense ever since "The Hollow Men" and so will be less disappointed if it sucks (and still happy if it is good).   Someone joked that now Felicia Day's image will have appeared in about four different Dark Horse tie-in comics.
