Hello and welcome to another edition of BTVS' Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments.
Today, we're taking a look at Season 9's Issue 16, wherein Billy gets some personal training by Buffy before he returns to Santa Rosita. It's also the issue where Buffy gets whisked away at a very inconvenient time by Illyria.
Our focus characters this issue are: Buffy, Billy the Vampire Hunter, Detective Dowling, Xander, and Dawn.
Our Characters Are A-Okay!
Buffy- Hmmm. I've nothing for Buffy.
Billy- I'm going to give Billy a Half-KUDO for coming along in the slaying arena. But this is the last one he gets just for doing his new job.
Robert- Nuthin' for Robert this time out.
Xander- Xander isn't receiving a kudo.
Dawn- No, Dawn is not receiving an award.
Our Characters Are Full Of Blah!
Buffy: I don't have a problem with Buffy.
Billy: I've nothing to slam Billy for.
Robert: Robert can get out without a demerit.
Xan: Xander doesn't earn my ire.
Dawn: Dawn isn't cruisin' for a demerit.
I've gotta issue a special Half-DEMERIT to Illyria -- her initial meeting with Buffy about the new Mystic Council does nothing to convince Buffy to be on their side.
