Guess the difference is that Buffy always saw Harmony as if you'll forgive the pun harmless Did Harmony ever actually kill anyone as a vampire I don't remember.My favorite part is when Cordy is on the phone talking to Willow. She thinks Harmony is a lesbian. I also love how infuriating Harmony is to Wesley. Lol. But you're right its really a story about Cordy. And I don't like him just buying her clothes at the end, either.
1. I don't mind Harmony the vampire. Sometimes she's over done. But for the most part she doesn't annoy me. She didn't do anything as a human so at least as a vamp she's funny.
2. No. Harmony is basically the same person that Cordy grew up with as friends. It makes sense that she couldn't kill her. Had Harmony the vampire been different than I think it would make it easier to stake her. You also gotta think, why Buffy never staked her.
3. Sort of. I get they did it to have another female character. But that one episode she has is pointless because season 5 is not about Harmony's growth as a character. And after that she just goes back to being her old self again. She's fine in small doses as Angel's secretary. But she wasn't necessary to the team. She even ends up betraying them in the end.
Good point. I think S5 is where they risked using Harmony too much. But I do remember enjoying her part in that season kinda. Of course if Cordy had played a bigger part in that season things might have been very different.
