    I don't think they'd have done a triangle had Buffy shown up, mostly because then they'd have had to resolve. I think Spike would have conveniently disappeared for the episode.
    Dawn was inserted into Buffys life retroactively. There is no way things would've been the same in all those years . Certainly for Buffy a single child self involved character (which Joss admitted there was some truth to at the time) then suddenly becoming an older caring sister.
    She was also retroactively made out of her by the Monks apparently too !!!

    Willow raped Tara memory twice. One of which after she asked her not too. They then ignored that and turned it into magic is crack, retroactively ignoring the previous magic is lesbian metaphor they'd done, so no neither was minor.

    Joss left it open in the comics. It would've been the same thing on the show. JM was a regular so he would've had to have showed up even for just 1 scene.

    Joss really doesn't get to admit anything. Are you really saying there was a fundamental personality difference between BvS and Real Me? But anyway, we knew what was rewritten. Dawn was inserted as a little sister.

    I am not talking about severity of action. But the amount of mental space being rewritten. It was about 15 minutes. Fore Connor to be wholly wiped out, they'd have had to imprint 2 whole seasons of television, all directly involved in putting them at W&H.

    No, he wouldn't just as Xander didn't show up in CWDP. That's not to stay he wouldn't stay in basement playing video games.

    Or they could have included Spike in flashbacks as in Why We Fight or Angel could have sent him on a wild goose chase. Maybe to Rome?
