Subject: A missed storyline opportunity...

I saw a potential storyline in the works at the end of season 6 of Buffy. When Willow turned evil, there was no word or mention of Amy. Amy has made it clear she is jealous of Willows power, but we also found out that Amy has a bit of power of her own, and she could take on Willow, if she had the energy too. I think they should have explored that at the end of the season. They also made it clear that Amy wanted Willow to embrace her powers. So I could have seen them going either way, having Willow and Amy face off, or teaming up to destroy the world (Like Willow wanted.) Did anyone else wonder why they didnt bring Amy up?

I think the whole point was to to get Buffy and Willow to face off. Plus, if Willow and Amy had joined together, it would have made Willow's motivations look completely different. When you team up with somebody to do bad things there's a lot more conscious thought behind it, like pre-meditation or something - and Willow's fall was supposed to be more about grief and loss of control. That's why everybody could forgive her later on. I don't think she could have been rehabilitated if she'd gone on a crime spree with Amy.

One of my gripes with season 7 was the dropping of plot points. Who left the talisman in the bathroom, why did Amy know who Kennedy was in a Killer In Me, etc. I think they could've easily had Amy in league with the first to answer some of these questions. As much as I liked Chosen, it could've been that much better if she was there to stop Willow from doing the spell. Big magic fight insues, Amy tries a last ditch effort to turn Willow into a rat, but just like her mother the spell gets reflected by the scythe or something and she becomes a rat once again. Would've been proper closure in my opinion.

That's just another waste of a guest star. I am talking about in terms of being underused to pointlessly used. The others include: Drusilla could have come back. The big bad morph in "Lessons" was essentially pointless. Faith coming back wasn't as spectacular as I imagined. They didn't make it interesting.
