Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Sneak Peek
Beloved Sister, Devoted FriendWhen we left Sunnydale last spring, the fashion-victim god, Glory, had Dawn (the Key) and was about to unleash a whole lotta yuck on the world. Summers blood needed to be shed - and Buffy volunteered hers by jumping to her death. So now that Buffy has died for the world - who is gonna save it next time? The Scooby Gang, of course! Here's our take on what's in store for the gang.
Wicked-good WitchesWillow is stepping out of Buffster's shadow (since there isn't one anymore) and she'll lead the gang in their first Buffyless battle. The evil this time is a bunch of demon bikers. Willow and Tara also move into the Summers' house, to keep an eye on the newly orphaned Dawn. Joss has also hinted that Tara and Willow will hit some bumpy patches in the road of love. "Obviously, a couple can't stay in perfect bliss forever, so we're going to shake things up," Joss warned Eonline. "Relationships that are happy-go-lucky get boring."
The Comic CrusaderXander proposed to Anya right before the big Glory battle. Anya said yes - only if the world didn't end. It didn't, so it looks like Xander and his former demon are going to the chapel. We all know they are a great couple, but I have a feeling that Xander isn't at the marrying stage just yet. Whether they say, "I do" or not this season, the whole process is sure to produce some serious funnies.
WatcherlessWith Buffy six feet under, what the heck is Giles "watching" anyway? Nuthin' - and he knows it. Giles packs it in and heads back to England. He will make the occasional visit back, but for the most part, Giles won't be around this season. His Magic Shop will be cuz Anya is taking over. (Uh-oh!)
The Kid SisLet's face it, whatever happens to Dawn this year could never suck as bad as last year, right? Last year she found out she is a "Key", then her mom dies, then she's kidnapped and then her sister dies. Well, this year is not going to be a piece of cake either.
First off, Dawn has to hang out with the Buffy-bot so that people don't realize she is orphaned. She's gonna have to grow up fast. Oh yeah, and rumor has it that Dawn gets a boyfriend - but he keeps leaving a trail of bodies everywhere he goes. Darn vampires!
