I agree. Anya deserved so much better. Her death bothers me almost as much as Tara's does.I agree pretty much with all you say @S Rou - I have enjoyed writing Xander/Dawn, in TTR series, but even in that story, Anya has a strong role, even though she is dead! I loved her and X/A so much, I had to have her be part of things.
They had plenty people to kill in Chosen. Andrew, for one! Anya did not need to die. That basically meant that all three scoobies left the one they loved in Sunnydale. Buffy lost Spike, Xander lost Anya and Willow had already lost Tara. It is exactly as if Joss cannot stand happy couples.
Every good relationship in his shows is either destroyed or never really happens. In Buffy, Angel & Firefly. Why?
For me, the best line up of the gang is:
Buffy, Willow, Xander, Anya, Tara, and Faith. With Spike and Angel as the allies that both love Buffy (even though I'm team bangel).
