    Also lets not forget that Willow has cheated before, so its not like its a brand new thing, but at the same time do we really know if Willow cheated. Did she actually have SEX with Saga?

    I think that's a distinction that we may have to wait and see resolved. When it comes to a demon snake lady without visible sexual organs that humans can discern, Willow's intent may be more powerful/convicting than her actions. And I think that her intent will be the most important point to Kennedy, as well, if it turns out Willow's having a questionable relationship with Saga Visuki.
     
    Chase Summers: agreed. I think the sex is a distraction
    UnKle: Agreed, and that's a good way to put it. I'm not quite sure about what she's doing, either, but I'm curious to find out her intent.

    Am I the only one who's noticed the allusion of Twilight having a sign (like the mark of the Beast from the Bible)? Or am reading too much into it? haha
     
    La Luna Unita: Definitely a possibility. Most of the time Buffy tries to steer clear of modern religion in it's allusions, tho... or at least that's my thought.

    Willow healed herself in Season 7 of Buffy and she was still learning how to do it then, this takes place a 1 1/2 later and Willow had intensive training with Saga Vasuki so why wouldn't she be able to heal herself and others, after all it is magick.

    8.20 After there Messages - We'll be right back

    So We're a couple of issues behind on this but we'll catch up!

    There wasn't much Cannon material is issue 20, as it was a dream, but there was a couple of things:

    First thing we go back to when Buffy was 16 and we see a younger Dawn for the first time, who was a little brat, it's safe to say!
    [​IMG]

    During her rant at Giles Buffy give us a Slayer numbers update:
    Eighteen Hundred slayers working in 10 teams:
    [​IMG]


    At the end of the issue Willow lets us know Andrew is in Madrid, and has been before. He also seems to have some trouble with the size of some vampire nests!

    This was actually a bit of a continuity error. Way back in issue #1 we were told that there were 1800 Slayers identified in the world so far... but only about 500 of them were members of Buffy's organization and organized into those 10 squads.

    This was another reference back to #1, when the Slayers got reports of a larger-than-expected vamp nest in Spain, and Xander directed Andrew to go deal with the problem with a group of his best Slayers.

    Issue #20 also gives us our first look at the new Slayer headquarters after the castle was blown up in #19.

    8.21 Harmonic Divergence

    So there was allot of Cannon stuff in #21,

    Firstly, Harmony has a perky pair, but they don't get her into Clubs ;) :

    [​IMG]

    The next and probably more important is, Harmony bites Andy Dick and gets photographed doing so
    [​IMG]

    The pictures hit the internet and the whole world learns of Vampires:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    With her new found fame, Harm gets herself an Agent who she seems she bites in excahnge for him seting up meetings, with MTV:
    [​IMG]

    MTV gives Harmony a show, which is on MTV 7pm Daily! The camera follow her around and watch her go to parties and bite people. She males Vampires famous an starts getting featured on Billboards and People Magazine:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We meet a new Slayer, but never learn her name. She seems to have been in a gang, and on her 16th Birthday she decides to leave
    [​IMG]

    She seems the Ad Andrew and Vi have out to find new slayers, she's approached by Andrew who talks her into helping them. Interestingly he compares the vampires to a gang, is it possible they research their new slayers and know what way is best to talking them into helping:
    [​IMG]

    After she agrees, He puts her on the Phone to Buffy who seems to have a prepapared speech for new slayers, although it doesn't work in this case and the slayer leaves.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    (And it seems horses are attracted to Dawn)

    We also find out that Clem is now hanging out with Harm, he also has a tattoo, somewhere!
    [​IMG]

    Some random girl at Harmonys party fills the new slayer in on why they like to get bitten:
    [​IMG]

    Some bigger things happen at the end of the issue, firstly Harmony kills her first Slayer:
    [​IMG]

    Which is seen by the whole world thanks to her reality show:
    [​IMG]

    Now the whole world knows of Slayers and Vampires and they see the slayers as the bad guys and Vampires as the things they hunt down:
    [​IMG]
     
    Buffyverse Fan: CONTINUITY ERROR!!! Vampire constitution or no, even a drop of Andy Dick's blood should have Harmony dying of syphilis among other things

    8.22 Swell

    Satsu is in Japan
    [​IMG]

    She's been promoted to Cell leader. Each of the slayer cells also have to undergo a review, Kennedy has been sent to review Satsu.
    Each cell also have to submit reports after a mission
    [​IMG]

    Since Harmony's reality show hit the air, Vampires have become huge, toys are being produced with fangs:
    [​IMG]

    Twilight had their hand in this particular line, and the toys come alive crawl down the victims throats and control their actions:
    [​IMG]

    The toys can group together to form a 'swell'
    [​IMG]

    Satsu took a sub from some vampires that took it from the Koreans, so the slayers now own a sub
    [​IMG]

    Harmony goes on Larry King, telling more tales of the evil Slayers
    [​IMG]

    8.23 Predators and Prey

    The gun loving Slayer Simone has broken away from Buffy and Co. and they've been searching for her:
    [​IMG]

    While Andrew was in Italy he spent sometime studying recombinant D.N.A and bred a Spider demon that had died out back into existance
    [​IMG]

    The Ragna Spider demon
    [​IMG]

    Simone hasn't just recruited Slayers, she also has Wiccans on her team:
    [​IMG]

    Andrew was Simones watcher and feels responsible for her turning, Roana also played some part
    [​IMG]

    Simone has taken over a small Island village and kicks all the villages out
    [​IMG]

    The squad we saw in Season 5 of Angel was Andrews squad, he was there watcher:
    [​IMG]

    Buffy and Andrew have a bonding moment, similar to Storyteller, Buffy lets Andrew know he is part of the family:

    8.24 Safe

    We meet a new Slayer, Courtney, or 'Coco', she left her Cell because she felt they weren't doing anything:
    [​IMG]

    She tells them about a place called Slayer Sanctuary, which is a place were Slayers can go and they don't have to be 'chosen'
    [​IMG]

    They go there, city called Hanselstadt, where Vampires are afraid to enter and have gathered at the gates:
    [​IMG]

    Hanselstadt is actually a town which was being terrorised by a Regret Demon, which was eating Children, because of the Regret demon Vampires did not enter the town.
    After the town ran out of children an old watcher name, Duncan Fillworthe offered the townspeople Slayers
    [​IMG]

    They leaked word of a Slayer sanctuary so more Slayers would come:
    [​IMG]

    Faith goes into the Sanctuary unaware of whats going on and is confronted with a regret of hers, a memory of a Vampire she fought just after she became the Slayer, one got away and she feared that that vampire went on to kill people and turn people, who in turn killed and turned people:
    [​IMG]
    The Vampire that got away she refers to as The Third (as he was the third vampire, and he got away)
    [​IMG]

    After defeating the Regret Demon (who eats Duncan Fillworthe) the townspeople aren't happy as the Vampires return to the Town, so Faith leads them in a fight against the Vampires:

    Will this thread be continued anytime soon? It was a great resource for those who don't have access to or aren't willing to spend money on the comics.
