Do you remember that episode where Buffy woke up in an asylum and her mother and father were together and they told her that she had to kill everyone in her other, fake life in order to get all better and go home with them?
And we never know which one is actually the real life and they never touch on it again because Joss Whedon hates all of us and is cackling evilly as we die from anxiety?
This one made me feel better.
The comic-Buffy actually has been to an asylum because Dawn read her diary and saw what Buffy thought she was (The Vampire Slayer) and her parents (who are still together) put her in there because they believe that she has lost it.
You see Willow for the first time! And Cordelia! But they don’t talk or anything.
You see more of what Giles has to go through as well in order to become The Slayer’s Watcher.
There’s like a little snippet of Angel too.
I loved this issue so much. You get to see into comic-Buffy more and how she didn’t ask to be The Slayer and how she deals with it. This issue feels more like the show than any of the ones that I have read so far.
It’s my favorite and I’m going to go read it again.
