The exact line is this: "Yeah, it sucks. First time I had to kill one of my friends I was sixteen years old. And when I think about that night, I don't see the face of a vampire. I just see Jesse's face."Very glad Jesse is mentioned in comics. At least someone was thinking. Finally, someone closed that circle.... and doing it after nine + years means it was a big deal. If you remember a person and their death a decade later, even for a few seconds, that makes it a very big deal... so that kind of redeems all we didn't see on screen.
Which to be fair he was Jesse was like the annoying teen in a slasher movie. It was a relief when someone put him out his misery. Which explains why the Scoobies were not that sad!I am sure Willow was upset by Jesse's death, but I doubt she liked him very much or mourned him all that long. To her, he was likely just Xander's douchy friend who competed with her for Xander's attention.
The main problem was that the audience did not care about Jesse. Would we really wanna watch Xander, a character we have just met, spend time mourning an unlikable character like Jesse?
I agree. Xander kicked a bin and that was about it lol... no funeral or anything.. not to be ever mentioned in the season again.... maybe the 1st could have turned into him during season 7 maybe to play with Xander a bit.They both just seemed to not be upset and move as if nothing ever happened. Jesse isn't even mentioned again.
That was the original plan, but the guy who played Jesse wasn't available hence why Conversations with Dead People is the only episode that Xander isn't in. TAra was also supposed to be in that episode but AMber Benson wasn't available/declined because she didn't want evil Tara.maybe the 1st could have turned into him during season 7 maybe to play with Xander a bit.
Ooh I didn't know that! Thanks. Nice to know that they had at least given the Xander-Jesse issue consideration in S7.That was the original plan, but the guy who played Jesse wasn't available hence why Conversations with Dead People is the only episode that Xander isn't in.
