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.

lol ... I'm very sympathetic to this. I wish I could quit it, but I'm so beyond hoping that S9 is going to correct the most egregious damage.

I've finally read 39... if Angel isn't being magically controlled, just how the hell do they think they can redeem his character again?!

I think there is a hint in there that Angel isn't acting as a free agent, but is being used by the Seed/New World Trying to be Born Thing. But, mostly, I think that the ideas are too large for this format... a graphic novel might have been a better vehicle for this storyline.

Ooops - I forgot though, that this doesn't exist. :-)

Angel even being in Buffy Season 8 makes no sense, since chronologically, it would be happening the at the same time as Angel Season 5.
