    There have been persistent rumours that Sunday was a slayer who was sired. That backstory alone is worth a lot of episodes. I doubt I could have stood to watch more of Kathy.

    I liked Sunday a lot so I think she deserved to be around for more episodes. She had a cool attitude and bested Buffy in a fight which shows that she is a formidable fighter. Both shows could have used some more interesting vampires and I think she would have been interesting to explore as a character and as a threat to the scoobies.

    Aw I voted for Kathy. She needs a friend. :p

    Honestly, she is very annoying, but purposefully so, and the actress was perfect at being so annoying. She kinda delights me.

    Hadn't heard that about Sunday, but that might've been an interesting story!

    Not much of a choice :D But I shall go for Kathy, who seemed to have a more individual character, compared to Sunday who could be seen as 'just another vampire'

    Hey, @Athena, Buffy didn't overreact about the Parker thing! She was just having 'Innocence' flashbacks because of him. It was Angelus all over again. Mornings after are a sensitive subject for Buffy...

    I'm the one who thinks Buffy overreacts, not Athena. The Innocence flashback excuse works for one episode, but she mopes about him for like three or four, it's ridiculous and it was never more obvious that she needs Cordy to come around and tell her to "spank her inner moppet"

    Well, I agree that she shouldn't have moped about him, because he's a poophead, but it never made me dislike Buffy or the storyline... I could understand where Buffy was coming from, even though I didn't feel the same way as her. I pretty much saw that storyline from Willow's eyes - Parker is a poophead, and Buffy needs a hug.

    And the whole thing ends with Buffy hitting Parker on the head with a club, so it's all good! :D

    I'm sorry, for some reason I got it into my head that @Taake is the british one. :oops: I'm really bad with names... You don't wanna know how long it took me to remember all the different characters from 'Game of Throns'!

    I just thought they beat on that drum for too long, as if Buffy and Parker had a real connection, which I don't think they did. I don't think Buffy needed a hug, I think her friends being wishy-washy with her was why she kept moping, I think she needed someone to tell her to shape up, it wasn't her first rejection after all.

    No probs :)
    Lol, I still can't remember all the characters from Game of Thrones, both books and show needs a character map!

    I think that's called "clever editing" ;):D

    I got a bit obsessed with my umms and y'knows and deleted quite a few of them.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 4, 2016 ---
    But.... this is her first thing since Angel and that was so intense and she's only ever experienced that sort of love from a guy. She's never had the love 'em and leave 'em Parker type. Makes sense she'd be low. Plus her last boyfriend did go evil after they slept together, so maybe she thought Parker had gone evil too?

    Besides, I bet it was an honour for you to be thought of as me. ;)

    Ah, but that's the thing - Buffy didn't mope because she had a real connection with Parker (she didn't), she moped because it reminded her of Angel and 'Innocence', and brought up all her deep-seated issues about rejection and inadequacy and loneliness and all that jazz. If I thought that Buffy was moping about Parker because of her so-called "connection" with him, I would have hated that storyline too, but I don't think that's what it was about. It was all about Angel, and about Buffy projecting her various issues onto Parker.

    But that's the thing, though - Buffy never really got over her first rejection! She never stopped loving Angel, and she never stopped mourning her relationship with him, as we see in 'I Will Remember You'.

    The internet apparently agrees with you. :)
