There is a confession I must make: I barely finished the last season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (a.k.a BTVS) this month. I can hear the gasps, faints, cries of blasphemy already. When BTVS aired on the WB all those years ago, it was one of the awesome-est shows out there. The problem was, it wasn’t the ONLY awesome-est show.

Something must have tweaked in my brain because I was convinced that the show killed him off and I dropped watching BTVS.

So here’s some context.
