“That was the hardest day of my life. I have turned roles down because they are rapists. It’s something I don’t even want to watch. If I even click on it on TV, I have to click it off or I’ll put my foot through the screen… What you see on that screen is just my terror at having to do that scene. There’s not really any acting going on and I haven’t watched the scene. I’ve seen little clips. You know, ‘previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.’ They show it sometimes and I’m always like, ‘Oh, God.’ … The writers are fabulous, but when I showed up on set that day I told them: ‘Sometimes you guys just don’t know what you do. You just do not know what you’re asking us…’ I’m proud of it artistically, but as a human being I never, never, never want to do a scene like that again and I will always refuse because I know what it does to me.” [United Press International, June 11, 2003]

It is always different! It’s always complicated, and at some point someone has to draw the line, and that is always going to be me. You get down on me for cutting myself off, but in the end the slayer is always cut off. There’s no mystical guidebook, no all-knowing council, human rules don’t apply. There’s only me. I am the law.
#it kills me how affected she still is by what she had to do to angel #it’s been years and he came back and as willow says ‘that all worked out okay’ but not for buffy #angel might have come back from it but i don’t think buffy ever did 100%
Giles, everything’s just been so…
