The dark and the light

Four more eps of Buffy watched tonight - Helpless, The Zeppo, Bad Girls, and Consequences. These are so hard to watch together, for numerous reasons. I hate seeing Faith turn this way, even though her alliance with the Mayor is part of why this is my favorite season. I hate how much betrayal Buffy feels - first from Giles, then Faith.

But in a lot of ways, these episodes exemplify why I love Buffy so much. Even after everything with Faith, she wants to believe in the best of her. Yes, I understand it's somewhat because she fears that there's more truth in what Faith professes than she's willing to admit, and that if she saves Faith, she saves herself. But she loves so much and so hard. I adore that.

It's not all doom and gloom though. We get Wesley! Okay, the lusting after Cordy is a little creepy. But he's so damn funny, and the roots are starting for where he will eventually get to in Angel.

In other news, I found out Hamilton will be here over the summer, so I went ahead and got more tickets so Alicia can see it. Oh, and she got some good news today. She had applied to be an RA next year, but after all the interviews, ended up on the alternate list. Today, she was offered a position in one of the freshman dorms in Foggy Bottom for next year. She waffled for a tiny bit, because she was worried about the other housing arrangements she had made, but after finding out they won't be affected negatively if she bows out, she decided to accept the RA job. I always knew she was a rock star. :)
