The fall theme is distance and Lirazel uses the distant POV's of the Potentials during Season 7 to take us closer to the subtle and unspoken relationship between Spike and Buffy. Lovely characterization and beautiful insight amidst a quite inventive effort in writing about Spuffy from the POV of characters better known as canon fodder of the season. They become real here and dammit all if she didn't make me feel sympathy for Rona. I hate Rona. Or hated. It could be past tense here and I blame Lirazel.
