Subject: Two questions about The Body

Recently viewing The Body with a friend I was trying to convert, she asked the same question that I asked the first time I saw it, namely: Is there a reason that the actress playing Dawn's teacher so closely resembles Kristine Sutherland? (I think the resemblance is more striking to someone not familiar with the characters.) Were we supposed to think of her mother when we saw the teacher, or was that just a freak chance of casting? Does anyone know for sure?

Another conundrum: I have always thought there was a metaphorical significance in the method Buffy uses to slay in the last scene: Surgical saw to decapitate a vampire. Her mother had undergone brain surgery a few weeks before, and certainly at some level Buffy was equating her medical treatment with her death. Thus the surgical vengeance on the vampire. My friend thought that that was "reaching", but she is unfamiliar with the show's writing style. Anyone else agree with me?
