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.

It feels like a cop-out to make the argument, but I just mostly think this is the outcome of a not very well thought out story. Because the metaphors changed to abruptly - whether it was the power magic gave her to make easy fixes in her life to suddenly magic itself being a drug and spending a lot less thought on what this revealed about Willow as a character or people in general. And more about making sure all the pieces on the board were set up for the finale, but less about how and why they got there.
