Mya Stone August 11, 2014 Share August 11, 2014 Buffy -- living on her own in a big city -- assists a girl whose boyfriend has mysteriously vanished. Back in Sunnydale, Buffy's friends do their best to battle the forces of evil. As a teenager, I hated this season premiere for so many reasons. Well, one: a distinct lack of Angel. It has grown on me a lot, over time though. The return of Chanterelle/Lily/Anne! (Who's less-than-tertiary character arc of growth between Buffy and Angel matches Wesley's in awesomeness, IMO.) The idea that time in hell moves faster than on Earth (To Be Ominously Continued). The pieces that the Scoobs have scraped together to survive. Once the show finds it's snark again (and Buffy declares her name), it feels like home. (I could do without the whole Xander/Willow subtext that turns into text later on. I say this as a girl who's best friend all throughout middle and high school was a guy. A guy who was gorgeous, and sweet, and funny, and amazing...and just not for me. We dated for 3 days in 6th grade and realized we were destined to be friends. The line was never crossed again. Heck, we were each other's prom dates, but we never got in the way of each other's relationships, I don't buy that storyline for a million reasons, but my own experience first and foremost makes me doubt it. Plus. Sad Oz = Sad Mya. Whoops. I digress.) So yay for the start of S3! 2 Link to comment
