» Buffy, BtVS (The Gift)

In hindisight, you can trace Buffy’s depression in season 6 back to this moment (and even to earlier episodes: definitely to Joyce’s death, and even in Spiral when she shuts down and decides she has already lost against Glory). Buffy’s depression was about much more than being torn out of heaven, and you can see why in this scene. A lot of people criticize season 6 for being too dark, but I feel that Buffy’s depression was one of best written arcs in the show.

#i actually think buffy’s depression was something she struggled with throughout the series #you can trace it all the way back to when she was killed by the master #but it probably started even earlier than that (via mindycollette)

#Also SMG’s physical performance in The Gift shows how relieved she was to be ending it. She doesn’t look overly frightened for someone who’s about to kill themselves she just looks like “I’ve got to do this. This is all I have left to do and then I’m done.” as though she’s relieved it’s over. She accepts her death pretty readily. It’s foreshadowed with the line “every slayer has a death wish”. Season 5 really felt like it was building up to her death in it’s entirety and there was closure on all fronts and then it was like “Oh no… you have to carry on now. There’s more. You’re not getting out of this.” and it reflects life in that way that it just carries on going even when you’re tired of it.

These are American citizens standing on a quiet suburban street with fucking incendiary devices rolling down on them. Smoke filling, just surrounding their oak trees, wafting passed their bedroom windows where their children are sleeping in cribs. Would you put up with that? Would you tolerate that? What if it happened right here, right now would we tolerate this? We label these little cities and go, “oh, here’s an event. This is an event that’s gonna begin and it’s gonna end, and there’s an incident going on.”

We keep calling them “incidents” but the police aren’t calling them “incidents” because the POLICE DON’T RENT TANKS for the moment. THEY ACQUIRE THEM gradually, and they’re equipped for this. And more and more and more every single police force is getting more and more military equipment as we go. They’re prepared for this stuff. And it’s NOT going to stop. The noose never loosens, it keeps tightening.

So when you’re looking at live footage of a city in your country where people are being ASSAULTED by the police - side with the people.
