Ah, yes, I see it. It could be a callback to her awkward hug of Angel for saving her life. However, with Willow and Melaka dressed to impress, it looks odd to see Cordelia in such a plain white top.I thought the other girl (hugging) was Cordelia, it kinda looks like her in the side on view. However I'm hoping it's not I don't want a love triangle with Cordelia and Willow, we already kinda had that with Xander in season 3
According to the tweets by Boom, Willow's girlfriend is named Rose, so it's an all new character. They're really going for the goth/alternative vibe with Willow and her belle. I must say I am not sure if I like it. Giving us a confident and cool Willow right out of the bat is one thing, but can there be at least one part that rings true to original geeky Willow?I'm guessing that is not Tara?
Good call (although the side-glance reminds me of Amy). Remember we had that discussion about S12 and the possibility of them combining characteristics....?between Willow and Melaka (which is what I will call her for the time being).
No - it's not just you. I'm writing something at the moment (relating to S7) that's to do with triads (dyads and the intervention of the third term or third party) and tessellations. I kinda like this:Is it just me, or are there a lot of triangles in these panels?
That does seem a bit sad, but if Willow looks at Cordy the way she seems to in that first panel when Rose side-eyes her, I can hardly blame Rose. When I first looked at this page I didn't notice the hand-holding so I thought Willow was looking at her love interest. Maybe I'm misinterpreting, but she looks kind of smitten to me in that first one.I feel a bit sad, because I feel as though they are setting Rose up to fail, seeing that she inevitably is just a stepping stone to Tara (though the girl on the panels above is definitely Cordy). I fear they will make Rose's possessiveness the reason their relationship falls apart.
I read it very differently. I think Willow looks bemused in the first panel, probably because Coredelia does not usually speak to her. Then her expression (and Rose's) changes to shock in the second panel, where I imagine Coredlia is thanking Willow for something, like saving her life perhaps (Rose may not be clued in on vampires, yet). I do not think Cordelia is making a move.That does seem a bit sad, but if Willow looks at Cordy the way she seems to in that first panel when Rose side-eyes her, I can hardly blame Rose.

I fear you may be setting yourself up for disappointment, but I'll stand with you. I really hope Rose gets her due and that she isn't just a stepping stone or a "lesson" for Willow.Heh, I haven't even read it yet and I'm already prepared to be Team Rose
I like DeadlyDuo's guess that its Xander who has the unnoticed crush on Willow. Maybe Willows sexuality will be more fluid in the comics. Or what if Xander is jealous of Willows confidence and her openness with Rose? If it was him narrating he says something along the line of maybe I could be happy if I'm around the right people - perhaps he thinks openly gay Willow and superhero Buffy will accept him being gay? Or does he already have a secret romance going on with Cordelia and he's worried she will let the secret slip?The big question is why is Xander sulking in the background. Positioned between Willow and her GF.
If they did that, I'd probably just quit it all together but I dont see them killing off their primary black character and making him into a villain.So my prediction that Buffy and Robin get together and then Robin gets vamped and becomes Angelus is still on.
I'd have to agree with you, as much as I hate the notion of a character being there just to fill someone's black quota. For example, Johnny Storm in the newest FF remake. There was no point making him black, period.I dont see them killing off their primary black character and making him into a villain.
