Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 6, episode 19, "Seeing Red":

-Superfans have been dreading this episode since the start of the podcast.
-Joss included Amber for the first time in the opening credits in this episode on purpose because he thought it would be "cute."
-The shooting environment for this show sounds so stressful.
-This whole echo chamber effect for Joss' work doesn't do him any favors.
-This episode marked the rise and fall of The Trio.
-The inclusion of guns here was an interesting twist in the plot.
-We want to like Jonathan, but that's mostly because he's played by Danny Strong.
-Did any of us see it coming that Andrew had a crush on Warren?
-Warren isn't secure enough in his masculinity to get with Andrew.
-The two orbs in a sac OMG.
-That's it, Mitch is going to Pigfarts.
-The contrast between Tara and Willow getting back together and the end of this episode is crushing.
-Is Dawn gay? Or why is she so excited about the sex happening in her house?
-Aaaaand we're done with anything resembling a fun and pleasant conversation.
-Dawn should not have stuck her nose into Spike's business.
-Yeah, trigger warning for this whole episode.
-Spike trying to take advantage of Buffy was such a horrific scene.
-Natalie's interview with James Marsters touches more on our thoughts on this horrific scene.
-It's important for show creators to understand that their material doesn't exist in a vacuum.
-Apparently, they didn't do trigger warnings before content like this when this episode aired.
-Why does Xander feel so entitled to Buffy's attention and apology?
-Where was Spike going on his motorcycle at the end?
-Filming the rape scene was nowhere near fair for either actor.
-There's no break from the trauma, as Warren waltzes right in with the gun.
-This death was not earned, as Tara's death was used simply as a plot point.
-Why is killing the lesbian girlfriend such a troupe?
-Is the treating of gay characters like this homophobic?
-Ariana's finally to the point of liking Buffy!
-The Trio is no longer the bigger threat, as Evil Willow falls into line.
-So it has to mean that Tara's death sticks because Willow turned evil?
