5.0 out of 5 stars The end of Willow? The beginning of a new Spike?, 25 Jun 2002
This review is from: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 6 - Episodes 12-22 (Box Set) [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
The second half of season 6 continues with the darker tone present since Buffy's return from the grave. The second half opens with Doublemeat Palace, and sees Buffy become an employee at a burger restaurant, to make money after being rejected from college; we get to witness Anya and Xander's almost-marriage, Buffy continues her ill-fated relationship with Spike, and theres an appearance by Buffy's old beau Riley.
However, this year also comes with tragedy, which all kicks off in 'Entrophy'. There is Spike's adempted rape on Buffy, several gun shots leaving characters severly wounded, and the BigScoobyDeath. These events lead to Willow losing it, as she finally gives into her magick temptation. In 'Seeing Red', 'Two To Go' and 'Grave' we get to see a side of Willow we have rarely seen. The side of Willow we really don't want to mess with.
Personally, my fave episodes are definitely 'Two To Go' and 'Grave' (season finale). One episode that stands out is 'Normal Again' which leaves Buffy thinking that she is a patient in a mental hospital and that her life as the slayer has been an illusion for the past 6 years. To be honest, all of the episodes on this set are genius, which is what we have come to expect from an established show like this, and from the brilliant workings of Whedon and Noxon.
Where can it go from here? We will know soon, as season 7 is confirmed and the cast are about to start filming, with rumours that a few scenes of the Season Seven opener will been filmed in England. And as for Spike? Will we be seeing a new side to him after the last shocking scene? And most importantly, will these rumours that Sarah Michelle Gellar leaving be confirmed?!
