Willow has no idea what happened to Angel. Maybe he fled before Acathla was activated. Maybe Buffy dusted him before the curse was accomplished. Maybe he was ensouled before Acathla was activated and the two left together.

and she got nothing in return. Not the tiniest crumb of „Hi Wills, I am still alive“ for at least three months.

Yes she has but Willow doesn’t know that. She doesn’t know that Buffy has to kill Angel. She doesn’t know Buffy has to do that seconds after he got his soul back. She doesn’t know Joyce kicked her out of her home. Willow avoids Buffy because she is hurt. She was severely injured trying to save Angel

her and her mother had tossed her out. She'd just killed her boyfriend too and had been living who knows how or where. I think she got the worst of it.

been injured or worse. At the very least they knew she had to rid the world of Angel (only knowing she succeeded because the world didn't end). Xander spent most of the time laying on the guilt up to that ultimate speech at the party. Willow just avoided her. When Buffy left the police were after

Good points BUT Willow also avoided any one on one conversation with Buffy when she got home until after the mess with the zombies too. Hard to talk about what happened when you aren't willing to talk. None of them ever asked Buffy about her experiences for that matter. For all they knew she had

And here is the real bummer - I actually think Xander was right to change the message. Otherwise Buffy would have hold back in the fight with Angel and he would have killed her and ended the world.

Angel and then went behind Buffy‘s back and ensouled him. And Willow doesn’t know about Buffy‘s grudge because she never told Buffy to kill Angel. The messenger changed the message and neither Willow nor Buffy will find out about it for another four years.
May 29, 2020 08:40am

She leaves no note for Willow. Three months and no call, no postcard, not a word. Then she comes back without apology or explanation. Nothing. She doesn’t talk to Willow. She doesn’t open up to her. And why? Because Buffy thinks Willow has betrayed her in the worst possible way. She told her to kill
May 29, 2020 08:38am

@pfeifferpack: you’re right from Buffy’s POV. But if you look through Willow‘s eyes it’s a different pic. Willow almost died doing the spell to ensoul Angel. Yet she promised Buffy to try again. And she did. Did she succeed? She doesn’t know, bc there is no word from Buffy. Buffy has disappeared.

See. I'm on no one's side in Dead Man's Party, including Buffy and Giles. Everyone acts stupidly and makes mistakes and no one is brave enough to say what they actually feel, until it has bubbled up and comes out in all the wrong ways.
May 29, 2020 08:20am

I can forgive Marti Noxon a lot in exchange for writing "The Wish" and, ooh, "Bargaining, Part One" too?! Two of my favorite eps right there. (But "Dead Man's Party" is... not a favorite, for sure)
May 29, 2020 08:12am

why is season 12 just so... awful
May 29, 2020 06:14am

Why are my least favorite episodes inevitably written by Marti Noxon?
May 29, 2020 05:05am

Just rewatched Dead Man's Party for the chapter I'm writing (the one where Buffy returns home from LA after S2). Can I just say how much I completely hated everyone except Buffy and Giles in this episode. What a bunch of self centered people. I wouldn't have blamed her if she had left again.

Great stories and art on Seasonal Spuffy. Thank you for sharing links and heads up. SO much wonderful creative output in our fandom even after all these years! Thanks for keeping the event alive!

@Less12 I don't know if you're still searching for it but the fic you're looking for sounds like Anything But Ordinary by Sweetie.

@Miss Marisol - thanks for the explanation. I was looking all over for the new chapter and was becoming increasingly confuzzled! error
