So Anya turns up and, coincidentally (?) the show suddently gets better. The Wish is a gem, it has the good bits of Buffy (the darkness and the humour) mixed with the usual nonsense but in a favourable ratio. Joss gets to kill off heroes (or have them nice and (un)dead already) and he kills them with such relish...



Also, while it's nice to see vampire Willow make another appearance later, I'd quite like to have seen more of hard-arse-Buffy too!

Apologies for the screencap-heavy post.
