* When you remember season 2's theme is sex, a lot of scenes and dialogue become clearer. For example, in School Hard when Buffy is fighting the vampire outside the Bronze, Xander goes inside to get her purse and pulls out a tampon while looking for a stake. Later, when she and Spike confront each other in the school, Spike says he smells "the blood of a nice, ripe... girl," implying that 1) she's on her menstrual cycle and 2) he knows, which adds some more {{Squick}} to their already sexual-metaphor-heavy conversation.

** They seem to play up the Squick angle by having 1996 Buffy sucking on a lollipop very Lolita-style.

** But Dawn never saw Joyce's body until the morgue, she wouldn't have known what position it was in. The rest rings true, though, seeing as Tara and Willow had become surrogate parents to her while Buffy was dead (and then absent). Tara dying was like her second mother dying.

** In season 4's Doomed, when the Scoobies return to the destroyed school, you can see the statue lying intact on the ground in the burned out hallway... meaning she's probably still there.

** We can take this a step further. Angel would lose his soul (twice over!), Tara (had this occurred before her death) would be rendered insane again, all of the activated Potentials would lose their Slayer powers, Amy would be a rat again, Warren would quite likely be alive and angry again as she killed him with magic, and countless monsters that Willow had defeated using magic would be once more alive and free and very, very pissed.

** It's a bit sweeter this way, though. It's one of the few things he and Willow truly understand each other on and they don't have to say anything on it,

* How the hell was Jonathan planning to commit suicide without killing anybody else (thus ruling out suicide-by-cop) with a ''high-powered rifle?!''

to:

*** Also, the Buffy tabletop RPG puts it best when it says Slaying is largely a covert activity and that guns tend to be loud, drawing in local authorities who will respond quickly to reports of shots fired, not to mention bullets tend to be much more traceable than your average wooden stake.
