My understanding of Willow's Season 6 journey, and correct me if I'm wrong here, is that she is addicted to magic for the power it gives her. But she spends this episode having things done to her. She is not the agent, she is the passive recipient. If this is supposed to be the episode where she really "turns a corner" into darkness, it fails to understand the core of that darkness completely and utterly. "Smashed" did a much better job of illustrating what her problem was.

I would disagree strongly about Willow not being the agent, but in this episode it's just not worth splitting the hairs arguing about it. The real problem was that there was no direct setup about Rack or that kind of magic in earlier episodes, so that whole episode had a stinky-yak-cheesy quality about it. What each of us get out of it as side lights is going to be problematic.

The important things from Wrecked? 2 Lines.

Willow and Buffy together, thinking about them own problems - It's over. It's over.

Spike (earlier) - It's too late for that!
