    I wouldn't say that it was legitimately moving for me. It was nice that they made that link to Buffy, and it made Empada a less black and white monster of the week. But there wasn't enough thought put into it to really make me care. I was never convinced that Empada should be forgiven for her actions.

    I suppose I agree. A better word would've been "surprisingly engaging," rather than "moving."

    Like you said too it was good to see Xander attempt to move on from his crush over Buffy. I wonder if it might have been better if they had not revealed from the start who Empada was. That way we could have been more engaged with the relationship with Xander and her link to Buffy.

    I agree, I find that to be the problem with the episode. The fact that we know she's the mummy from the beginning makes me not care about Xander and her. I think for me the highlight of IMG is Willow.
    Willow: "I can sit around and wait for Xander or I can move on."
    Buffy: "Good for you."
    Willow: "I haven't decided yet."
    I love it!
     
    Mr Trick: I love that line from Willow too!
