Episode Poll: 5.13 Blood Ties

So I'm taking the GRE next Monday. I'm CRAMMING. As such, I may be a mere ghostly presence in the LJ world for the next week. (Though there may be more Wordy fic soon...)

Still, have a poll!

Midpoint of S5, anyone? You know you wanna poll for Blood Ties...

Poll #1832620
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 109

1. Buffy finally tells the others that Dawn's the Key. They're annoyed that she took so long. Do you think she was in the right to keep that info under wraps?

View Answers
Yes. After all, the Scoobies started acting weirdly around Dawn once they know.
58 (54.7%)
She had been at first, but she took too long to tell them.

No. She should have told them as soon as she found out.

I have another answer.

1. Other than Giles and maybe Willow, I'm not so sure it was a good thing they knew. I think that put their lives more in danger than usual.

2. Poorly executed. I get stemming from Medieval times or whatever, but I don't get staying set in Medieval times...

3. I chose Xander. Anya makes awkward statements all the time, but Xander seemed like he was trying too hard.

4. Buffy's prettier, or rather, has a more interesting face. That being said, Kramer looks better now than she did then.

5. With all of the crazies walking around and what have you and Glory lurking around her house, yes, I think Buffy should have told Dawn sooner.

6. I chose yes for choosing Dawn sooner, if only because he's one of the few who has actual strength who can actually help protect Dawn.

7. If Dawn had been a vegetable, her blood still would have been good. I'm just curious if she would have been able to "taste" the key or if doing that would have cured Glory.

2. Yeah. They kinda get more ridiculous each time I rewatch.

4. Oooh! Pics? I think she's quite lovely...aside from the whole psycho gaze thing.
Apr. 10th, 2012 07:20 pm (UTC)
You know, it's possible it was the hair change and her face looks more sculpted cause she's older, or it could be because she simply looks better in person :P For instance, I never thought too much about Mercedes McNab, but when I saw her in person, man was she gorgeous.

Apr. 10th, 2012 09:21 pm (UTC)
Oh! She does look pretty! I think the not-crazy eyes and the normal hair help. I don't know why, but I always got the impression that her hair in Buffy was a wig...
Apr. 10th, 2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
Maybe because in some scenes she's pulling at her hair and ends up with handfuls of it?
Apr. 10th, 2012 10:56 pm (UTC)
A wig...

That's a nice thought, cause I thought that hair was seriously awful :P

"The god of what? Bad home perms?" Oh, Spike kills me!
