- The City of Angels
It's a little out of nowhere, but not that much out of nowhere to me. We already know that Tara has poor self esteem and in New Moon Rising she was actually expecting Willow to go back to Oz. So it might have been something on her mind all along, but the placement of the argument was very left field. It did really give the impression that it was only put there to have a reason to separate the two long enough for Glory to get to Tara and therefore move the plot.To me the Willow/Tara arguement rang a little false, I get the first hints of 'too much magic' stuff, but the whole 'gay cred' was the real reason for the falling out and that did come out of nowhere.
I never realized that. Wow Tara is such a positive and amazing person it's not surprising she'd see the good in what Dawn is.I love how Tara seemed to be the only one affected by Glory who thought that the energy was beautiful.
That's what I love about the final four episodes of the season is the why they build the odds about Buffy and the Scoobies, and just how powerful Glory comes across as.The ending where Glory finds out that Dawn is the key shows why she was probably the best "Big Bad" to me. You honestly have a feeling of "how in the world are they going to defeat her and protect Dawn??".
