Twin screengrabs from the 20th minute and 7th second of related
Willow: What do you want to do?
Buffy: I don't know. What happened to Angel wasn't his fault.
Joyce: I am your mother and you will make time to explain yourself!
Buffy: I told you. I'm a vampire slayer.
Joyce: Well, I just don't accept that.
Buffy: Open your eyes mom. What do you think has been going on for the past two years?
These screengrabs are from "Becoming" the two-part second season finale of The Greatest Television Show of All Time (more commonly referred to as Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Angel, Buffy's beau, was becoming evil again, Buffy's friends and family were becoming aware of their own mortality, Buffy was becoming aware of the gravity of her calling, and Buffy was in the process of becoming a pop culture legend.
Stay tuned for the Action Heroine Blog-a-thon this afternoon. I'm not writing about Buffy but I'm sure someone will be.
