Buffy and Smallville finale first thoughts


Buffy was.

Um.

Yeah.

I should be crying for Anya. She deserves tears. She deserves everything because she *wasn't* a champion or a hero or Chosen. She's just a former demon who is still very young at being human. Was. Young. Even at 1000 years old. And she died with more honor and grace than. Well.

I should be crying. I'm numb.

I'm numb about Spike and about Buffy, and. I'm numb.

When it comes to Buffy, I'm numb. And I wonder when I stopped caring.

Meanwhile.

Smallville kept me bouncing around the room with the tension and hurt, and the layers and layers of lies and hopes and hopeful lies. And when Helen showed up...and how...what happened to the pilot? And Lionel is magnificent, isn't he?

And Clark is beautiful and he's acting exactly as a seventeen year old who believes his father hates him would act. Complete with the only drug that works on him.

And all the babyfic gone to Jossage. And poor Martha. God, how I hurt for Martha, who may have lost both her children. But Clark doesn't think that way because he's seventeen.

And Lex. And Chloe, also acting as a hurt child would act, and damn Lionel for using that.

But there's Pete for loyalty.

And Lana for selfishness.

And I know this isn't coherent at all.

I want Lex to find Clark and...I don't know. Help each other.

When it comes to Buffy, I'm numb. And I wonder when I stopped caring.

*nod* I pretty much hated this episode. I'm not sure I didn't hate the entire season. I wanted to love it, and go out with fan-glow, and now I feel like I should have known better. *sigh*

word to that

I know it's spam, but I gotta nod and say "word to that". My reaction to the final episode of Buffy could be summed up as (1) Anya? Out of everyone who coulda/shoulda been killed, they had to kill ANYA? She was my favorite character these past couple of seasons; (2) Huh? That's it? After everything we've been through, that's it?

Sigh.

Re: word to that

Well, they couldn't kill Andrew, because that was too heavily foreshadowed, and they couldn't kill Wood, because...I guess because he had to surprise Faith, and I admit, I kind of liked that. They also killed Dawn's classmate potential, and other unnamed slayerettes, but sadly, Anya was about the only one I think they could kill, without going for one of the major players, and obviously they didn't want to go there. I'd suspected it, just from an interview I'd read where Emma said she definitely wasn't going to show up on any related shows, but... yeah.

I wasn't entirely unhappy with the ep. I loved the way the whole Buffy-Angel-Spike thing worked out for both pairings, I liked some of the quips, even though they didn't feel entirely natural, and I like Willow's, "that was nifty!" remark. But... I didn't cry, and that kind of bothers me. I came close, once, but I can't even really remember when that was. Meh.

I was hoping. I was so hoping. There were flashes, too, of humor and of the people I did love. Giles being "invisible" and the three of them planning to shop - the entire "mall" thing - and the D&D game, which I called as soon as the scene began, and the Dawn and Buffy interaction, and even how sweet Xander and Andrew were.

The tragedy I'm mourning is that Anya was still trying to define herself.

Who knew it was "hero"?

On the other hand, all I think at the end was, "Where do we go from here?" They rewrote the universe.

I wonder if that will affect Angel. Although, since I don't watch it, I guess I won't know.
