Season 8 - The Chain

Season 8: Under the Influence

Allie says the influence of Twilight is affecting Buffy and Angel, specifically:

SCOTT: We wanted a visual representation of what was going on, the way they were infused. But you should not let the characters off the hook completely for their actions. It worked like a drug, clouding your judgment, but you’re still you.


But I'm running across statements (not just on LJ, but in forums too) that say this means that's just Buffy and how she really feels.  I really don't think so.  I think this influence of Twilight is similar to what happened in the AtS episode "Billy".

Buffy - red and terrible and red

Spuffy fan likes #36--it must mean the end of the world :p

ladyofthelog  posts her reaction to both the Riley one-shot and "Last Gleaming Part I".  She liked them and doesn't see it as the death knell to all things Spuffy.

me_llamo_nic  also noticed some interesting foreshadowing for the finale in "Always Darkest".

Speaking of which, in response to her own post, I had some thoughts on the meaning of the Buffy/Angel and Buffy/Spike comparisons Season 8 is making.
