Re: Willow; It’s far worse, Willow was torturing Warren for a confession. She got one, and in fact, he repented. You don’t kill a penitent man, if he truly regrets what he has done, he will turn himself over to the police, confess to the murders of Tara McClay and Katrina Silber, and then throw himself on the mercy of the court. That’s what a good guy wants to see a villain do. She then killed him. And we forgive her… Xander made her cry? Because the Coven and Giles extracted some heavy penance? There’s really no way Willow should have come out as likable afterwards, I get she was fueled by rage, despair and black magic, but she went farther than Hamlet and Achilles, and doesn’t really ever pay for it. I kind of wish the Amy episode in Season 7 had that as the secret twist, Amy isn’t doing this out of vengeance or jealously, she got over that, it’s out of fear and mercy. Willow is now an clear and present danger to all of mankind, and while the bounty on her is quite substantial, Amy considers suicide a more merciful death or undeath than what the Conclave has in store for her. And that’s the Willow pilot.
