Once More with Feeling: Tell me how you really feel
In this episode, everyone reveals something about themselves that causes harm to other people. For example, Xander and Anya sing to each other regarding their doubts about their marriage, Buffy sings and admits that she thinks Willow took her from heaven, and Willow sings to Tara happy that they had made up after their argument over Willow’s excessive use of magic (which Willow erased from Tara’s memory…by using magic).
I think this episode is not only creative on the director’s part, but is also important because it gives us the true insights to what the characters’ are feeling, but wouldn’t have admitted had they not been cursed with song. I found it truly interesting that despite it being the only musical episode, the characters were able to maintain their true personas while singing and dancing.
