  • Kennedy Mystical Death Willow Magickal Walkabout thing

    Hi. I'm new to the forums and I was just wondering (sorry if this has been covered before), but I'm a wee bit confused on the whole Kennedy Mystical Death Willow Magickal Walkabout thing. Are we not supposed to know a whole lot yet? Am I just missing something? I have issues 1-9 and then 11, but my lil brother is borrowing 10, so I can't refrence it. Would love to hear what peeps have to say. thanks!

    We don't know much at all about Kennedy's death of Willow's magical walk-about. All we know so far is that Kennedy died for a few weeks and has since returned.

    In Issue 10 we see a glimpse of Willow magical walk-about. Its Willow and a creature that resembles Ursula from the the Little Mermaid. Ursula is stroking naked Willow's face and wrapping her up in her tenticles. She then asks Willow:

    "Are all my secrets laid bare now? Have you found what you needed? Or shall I show you more?"

    So all we know is Willow was searching for something. What she was searching for is unrevealed. I personally think Tara is the answer.

      If Tara is the answer...that would be awesome. I wonder what the chances of seeing her in the comics is.

        Scott Allie, the editor, actually answered this already, and, unless he's sandbagging, the answer is that there is practically no chance of seeing Tara again in the comics.

        I also seriously doubt Tara was the point of the 'magical walkabout'. Look, Willow said in as many words that she is in love with Kennedy. I think the walkabout was just about Willow doing what she most frequently does -- trying to learn and acquire more knowledge and more power.

          i wonder what the reasoning is behind never bringing Tara back. I mean, they wanted to in Conversations with Dead People. Why not take the opportunity to do it in a bigger, better way? Perhaps they don't want to cheapen her death?

            I would personally feel that seeing Tara alive again, especially in comic form, would be disrespectful to her death and would completely take away the meaning to Willow's evil turn in Season 6. If they brought Warren AND Tara back in Season 8, then Season 6 may as well never of happened.

            I know I was the one that suggested that Willow was searching for Tara, but it doesn't mean I'm for it. I don't think they're going to bring her back. When I said searching I meant prehaps Willow was searching for answers. Like why couldn't the First take Tara's form? Obvisouly we know that in reality Amber couldn't do it... but prehaps they're trying to make sense of that in the Buffyverse?

            I'm just saying Willow can search for answers about Tara with out resurrecting her or stumbling across the possibility of bringing her back. She's dead and it should stay that way.

              Tara wasn't coming back in "Conversations With Dead People" -- Amber Benson was asked to come back and play the First. You can read the scene as intended in the shooting script. She decided not to do it because she thought it would corrupt people's memory of the character, to see Amber speak so cruelly as the First to Willow.

              Instead, they covered with the First appearing as Cassie and claiming (as part of a reasonable enough mindjob) that Willow essentially didn't deserve to see Tara. But, no, Tara wasn't coming back. There's a version of "Chosen" or a late season episode that deals with her coming back by a wish, but honestly, I'm not sure if that's just a fan thing like the other, darker version of "The Gift".

              The real reason we're not going to see Tara (or Anya) back is because it's just the harsh painful thing. Joss wanted there to be permanent losses for fans amongst the characters. That's why he says they didn't have Angel bite Jenny, because they didn't want fans to think she might be back as a vampire, they just wanted to make sure people knew they'd killed her.

              Plus, after "Anywhere But Here", Tara's death is clearly part of the gap between Buffy and Willow, and since Joss apparently has a story to tell there, he couldn't sustain it if he brought her back.

              I'm actually quite willing to accept Kennedy. My opinion of her character went up a lot based on that scene between her and Willow.

                I know this is going to sound strange, but I've always liked Kennedy. I was glad to see Joss add some real weight to their relationship in issue 10. With Tara's death still being such a heavy issue with Will, I can't imagine Tara coming back; now that I think about it. Do you know where I can read these 'alternate' versions of The Gift and Covos with Dead Ppl?

                  Well, there's nothing 'alternate' about the "Conversations With Dead People" shooting script -- it was the intended design of the episode, that they had to cover when Amber turned them down. The shooting script is on BuffyWorld right now, and may also be here once the main site is active.

                  The 'alternate' version of "The Gift" is this more or less entirely fabricated high body count version which only, I think, Giles, Dawn, and Spike survive or something similarly awful. It doesn't actually exist, so there's nowhere to really read it.

                  The storyline of Tara coming back was going to involve Buffy having a wish, and showing Willow her new shoes, Willow thinking Buffy used her wish on new shoes, and then Buffy steps aside and, ta-da, there's Tara.

                    That would've been heart-wrenchingly wonderful to watch.
