Buffy: it's all about being fucked!

From behind on a catwalk at a club, even. If Spike keeps turning Buffy more and more evil I may start to not hate the show. Though if Buffy's not wearing underwear to a club she's halfway to evil already.

Oh, I wouldn't say they removed the lesbian angle. It's obvious that Willow and Tara still love each other -- they just have a fairly "real" relationship where they have ups and downs.

As for witchcraft as a drug -- I am not sure they're showing exactly that either. It just seemed that Willow was using Magic as a way not to have to try very hard to do anything and not paying attention to the consquences of using her magic so liberally.

I loved this episode. I liked how they made it very clear what Warren had been doing (and the other two to a lesser extent) was rape. I think this episode was a major turning point in the show as it shows the boys (well, at least two of them) have gone off the deep end and are no longer just doing prank-like activities.

I so feel for Buffy. She's so broken. And Spike is staying true to his nature but has also changed.

And Joss is the devil. But in a good way.

Witchcraft portrayed as a drug

I don't see it so much as it portraying "Witchcraft" (and all its connotations) as a drug, as *magic* (and, really, even more basically, "power") as being a drug.

And that it's happening to nice-nice good-girl Willow makes it all the more poignant, potraying that everyone is vulnerable to corruption.

Spoiler warnings!
This is for any follow-ups. Laura did a good job of no spoilers, but I haven't seen the episode yet; spoiler warnings on follow-ups would be nice!
