Willow Rosenberg: Man, just ascend, already! Buffy Summers: Evil! Mayor Richard Wilkins: It's been a long road getting here. Dark Willow is the name given to the evil alter-ego of Willow Rosenberg following the death of her lover Tara, which coupled with her addiction to powerful and dangerous magic ultimately caused her to lose her sanity and become a major antagonist to the team as she sought to end her suffering via bloody vengeance against the "Trio" she viewed as responsible for Tara's death then destroy the world. One of the greatest debates in the BtVS fandom centers around Willow's Rosenberg's sexuality. In this vid I take a look at both sides of the argument, paying.
In the season premier, Willow receives an apparent precognitive vision of the Hellmouth, although this has only been shown once. Willow also comments that she now absorbs power from the things around her, one time unwillingly draining some of Anya's and Kennedy's life-force.
At the end of Season Seven, Willow casts a spell that imbues all Potential Slayers on Earth with Slayer powers formerly reserved for only one girl in every generation , temporarily turning Willow's eyes and hair crystal white in the process.
Kennedy remarks on it by calling her "a goddess. Season Eight shows that Willow's powers have greatly expanded since the television series.
She can now fly by force of will and has regained control of her powers, and although her roots continue to go dark whenever she taps into more power, this doesn't faze her.
She is able to project vast amounts of energy from her fingertips and cast aside powerful spells. Willow is able to teleport giant Dawn, apparently from Scotland to Tokyo, without visible strain.
She is able to heal herself rapidly from extreme injuries, at least including partial lobotomy. She is also able to heal injuries in others.
Amy characterizes her as a "big all-powerful earth-mother witch goddess". The Season Eight time travel storyline "Time of Your Life" depicts Dark Willow as alive and youthful hundreds of years into the future although unable to create magic of much power.
Willow's appearance changes drastically over the course of the show to reflect her growing level of confidence and power.
In her initial appearances, she dressed like a little girl and her mother still picked out her clothes for her. Cordelia comments on this in "Welcome to the Hellmouth", cruelly stating, "Good to know you've seen the softer side of Sears!
In reality, this is due to the WB requesting that Willow dress more "hip" like Buffy. In his DVD commentary for "Welcome to the Hellmouth", Joss Whedon explained, "The incredibly nerdy clothes that she's wearing, you'll see her wearing for exactly one episode, because [the network] kept sending us memos 'You must make her more hip.
You must make her more cool. You must make her more Besides, I think that outfit's really cute. By Season Three, Willow has blossomed through her relationship with Oz, and her appearance reflects this.
She cuts her hair shoulder-length although it takes her mother several months to notice this - "Gingerbread" and develops a penchant for fluffy sweaters and peculiar hats.
One of her memorable outfits in Season Three is her pink sweater from "Doppelgangland". Feeling undervalued by her friends, Willow threatens to change her look, shortly before the arrival of the alternate universe Vamp Willow, dressed in her iconic leather outfit.
Upon seeing Vamp Willow, Percy asks her if she is "trick-or-treating", while Buffy describes her as a dominatrix.
Upon seeing her human alter-ego's pink sweater, Vamp Willow teases her by saying, "Well, look at me. I'm all fuzzy. By college, Willow cuts her hair even shorter, and begins to wear long skirts and high shoes, which make her appear significantly taller and more confident than in her shy, wallflower years in high school.
However, in "Restless", it is revealed through a dream that Willow feels she is only hiding her true geeky nature, with Buffy and Riley describing her normal clothes as a "costume.
In "The Body", Willow focuses her grief over the death of Buffy's mother Joyce Summers on what clothes to wear while visiting Buffy at the hospital.
She describes her clothes as having "stupid things on them" and asks why she can't dress "like a grown-up. When Willow is consumed by black magic in the closing episodes of Season Six, she inadvertently takes on a goth look.
Dark Willow, as Andrew Wells refers to her in "Storyteller", can be identified by her black hair, black eyes, and numerous veins over her face, the latter of which gained after killing Rack and absorbing his power.
Xander described Dark Willow's appearance as the "makeover of the damned", but later assured her that he loved "scary, veiny Willow" just as much as "crayon breaky Willow.
In Season Seven, Willow's hair has grown slightly longer and she dresses more maturely. Template:Vague While performing the spell to activate the potential Slayers in "Chosen", her hair briefly turns white, contrasting the benevolent intent behind this spell against the black magic performed by Dark Willow.
In the Season Eight comics, Willow is dressed in clothing reminiscent of Tara and her hair is shoulder length again. In the time travel Time of Your Life storyline, her future counterpart is dressed in clothing resembled elements of her alternate vampiric counterpart from the "Doppelgangland" and Drusilla.
Willow is described on the show as a " Wicca " sic. For example, in the Season Three episode "Doppelgangland," Anya tells her: "I heard you were a pretty powerful Wicca, so However, some critics Template:Who have pointed out that the depiction of Wicca on the show is inaccurate.
In the book Seven Seasons of Buffy,  author Christie Golden describes Willow as a "Hollywood witch" and points out that even the phrase "a Wicca" makes no sense, stating: "One who follows the faith of Wicca is a Wiccan.
Willow also seems to identify—at least ethnically and culturally—as Jewish. She refers to herself on a number of occasions as Jewish and appears to come from a religious family, noting in the Season Two episode "Passion" that she has to go to Xander's house to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas every year; Xander mentions this fact again in the Season Five episode, "The Replacement.
On another occasion, when performing the spell to revoke Angelus' invitation to her house, she hides the crosses she uses to do so, claiming that her father would get made if he saw them.
She also mentions multiple times in "Amends" that she celebrates Hanukkah and not Christmas. In the sixth season episode, "Hell's Bells," Willow mentions that she had a Bat Mitzvah several years ago.
In the seventh season episode "Help", Willow places stones on Tara's headstone, a Jewish tradition to honor the dead.
Although Willow had previously been established as a "straight girl", pining after Xander and enjoying a long-term relationship with Oz, there are hints of her being at least bisexual in the episode "Doppelgangland" when she meets her vampire alter ego.
However, Jane Espenson said in an interview with the BBC that creator Joss Whedon said at the time of writing that episode, he had no idea that he was going to make the character of Willow a lesbian.
In Season Four, following Oz's departure, Willow secretly performs spells with fellow Wiccan Tara, but there are hints that they are more than just friends.
The first confirmation that their relationship is romantic in nature comes in the episode "Who Are You?. Willow and Tara earned a dedicated fan base of gay and bisexual viewers who were inspired by the characters, with Alyson Hannigan and Amber Benson becoming gay icons.
However, broadcasting constraints from the WB meant that, unlike the heterosexual characters, Willow and Tara were not allowed to be shown in any sexual scenes.
The context of the scene involved Tara comforting Willow after the death of Joyce Summers. This changed significantly when Buffy switched networks to the more lenient UPN, with Willow and Tara shown kissing, sharing a bed, and even having implied oral sex cf.
The character of Willow continued to break new ground when, in the Season Seven episode "Touched", she was seen having sex with her new girlfriend Kennedy, in the first lesbian sex scene on network television.
It is worth noting that this relationship is the only one involving one of the "core four" Buffy, Willow, Xander, and Giles , to survive the series, all previous relationships having come to a tragic end one way or the other.
Willow's alter ego in "Doppelgangland" displays overt bisexuality , with Willow forming strong heterosexual relationships across the first three seasons of Buffy.
She also comments upon Dracula's sexiness, which is likely caused by Dracula's thrall over people, in "Buffy vs.
Dracula," and even reveals a former crush on Giles after seeing him sing with his guitar at the coffee shop. Later in the series, Willow's relationship with dealer Rack takes on sexual overtones, although it is mostly because of the magic he gives her.
However, Willow does make her preferences clear. In "Him", as one of the many women under RJ Brooks' love spell, she seeks to transform him into a woman.
Discussing the conquests of best friend Xander in "The Long Way Home, Part Three", Willow teasingly says that even she "went in for smoochies" before reiterating "and I don't truck with the stubbly crowd.
A new species of sea slug found on the West Coast, Alderia willowi , was named after this character in a tongue-in-cheek tribute due to Alderia willowi's rare reproductive dimorphism and Willow's own unique sexuality shifts during various seasons and episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Willow's friendships and rivalries with Buffy and Anya largely reflect sisterly relationships. Willow and Tara did not kiss until the fifth season in an episode that diverted the focus away from the display of affection when Buffy's mother dies in " The Body ".
Before this, much of their sexuality is represented by allusions to witchcraft; spells doubled for physical affection such as an erotic ritual in " Who Are You?
As opposed to it being evil, it is an earth-bound force that is most proficiently harvested by women. In the fourth and fifth seasons, the characters could be shown on a bed, but not under the covers.
Hannigan noted the inconsistent standards with the other relationships on the show: "you've got Spike and Harmony just going at it like rabbits, so it's very hypocritical".
Susan Driver writes that younger viewers especially appreciate that Willow and Tara are able to be affectionate without becoming overly sexual, thus making them objects of fantasy for male enjoyment.
Willow and Tara's influence on specifically younger female viewers is, according to Driver, "remarkable".
Academics, however, comment that Willow is a less sexual character than the others in the show. She is displayed as "cuddly" in earlier seasons, often dressing in pink fuzzy sweaters resulting in an innocent tomboyishness.
She becomes more feminine in her relationship with Tara, who is already feminine; no issues with gender are present in their union. When the series moved broadcast networks from the WB to UPN in , some of the restrictions were relaxed.
Willow and Tara are shown in some scenes to be "intensely sexual", such as in the sixth season episode " Once More, with Feeling " where it is visually implied that Willow performs cunnilingus on Tara.
Willow is more demonstrative in the beginning of her relationship with Tara. Where in her relationship with Oz she described herself as belonging to him, Tara states that she belongs to Willow.
Willow finds in Tara a place where she can be the focus of Tara's attention, not having to appease or sacrifice as she has in the past.
Tara, however, eclipses Willow's role as the moral center of the Scoobies, and as Willow becomes more powerful and less ethical, Tara becomes a maternal figure for the group.
She becomes completely devoted to and enamored of Tara, and then manipulates her to avoid conflict when Tara does not conform to what she wants.
Long after Tara's death, Willow faces the choices she made: in the Season Eight episode " Anywhere But Here ", Willow tells Buffy that she is responsible for Tara's death.
Her ambition to bring back Buffy from the dead inevitably led to Tara getting shot and killed. In the one-shot comic, Willow is offered Tara as a guide for her mystical path to understanding her own powers, but rejects her as being an illusion, too much of a comfort, and not a guide who will force her to grow.
She begins a relationship with Kennedy. Following protests angry about the death of Tara, Whedon and the writing team made a decision to keep Willow gay.
In , he told The Advocate about the possibility of Willow having a relationship with a man, "We do that now, and we will be burned alive.
And possibly justifiably. We can't have Willow say, 'Oh, cured now, I can go back to cock! She will just be gay.
She is younger, outspoken, and aggressively pursues Willow, who hesitates to become involved again. The spell is broken when Willow acknowledges her guilt and Kennedy kisses her again.
Kennedy expresses that she does not understand the value of magic and assumes it involves tricks, not the all-consuming energy that Willow is capable of.
When Willow eventually exhibits what power she has, it briefly frightens Kennedy. Willow worries about becoming sexually intimate with Kennedy, unsure of what may transpire if she loses control of herself.
In Season Eight , Kennedy and Willow are still romantically involved, but separated during Willow's self-exploration. Unlike her relationship with Tara, Willow is able to hold a separate identity while with Kennedy.
Many viewers hated Kennedy, because they saw her as a way of saying; "Tara's dead, let's move on. After the emotional death of Tara and Willow's reaction nearly ending all life on Earth many fans thought that it was ridiculous for Willow to recover and move on so quickly.
Kennedy overall, has received much hate, but there is the other side who say that she was exactly what Willow needed to recover and continue a happy life.
Susan Driver in Queer Girls and Popular Culture . Willow's religion and sexuality have made her a role model for audiences. Whedon, however, has compared her Jewish identity to her sexuality, stating that they are rarely made a significant focus of the show.
Buffy essayist Matthew Pateman criticizes the show for presenting Willow's Jewish identity only when it opposes Christian declarations of holidays and other traditions.
Producer Gail Berman states that as a Jew, Willow "handles herself just fine, thank you". In Queer Girls and Popular Culture , Susan Driver states that television ascribes to viewers what lesbians look and act like, and that realistic portrayals of girls outside the norm of white, upper or middle class, and heterosexual are extremely rare.
Realistic depictions of lesbians are so rare that they become strong role models and enable "hope and imagination" for girls limited by the conditions of their immediate surroundings, who may know of no other gay people.
It is a progression that defies strict definition. Manda Scott in The Herald states that Willow's lack of panic or self-doubt when she realizes she is in love with Tara makes her "the best role model a teen could ask for".
When viewers realized that Willow was falling in love with Tara, Whedon remembered that some threatened to boycott the show, complaining "You made Willow a fag", to which he responded, "Bye.
We'll miss you a whole lot. Lesbian-themed HBO special If These Walls Could Talk 2 won an Emmy. Twenty-three television shows depicted a gay character of some kind in Willow and Tara's relationship became the first [ citation needed ] long-term lesbian relationship on U.
Jane magazine hailed Willow and Tara as a bold representation of gay relationship, remarking that "they hold hands, slow-dance and lay in bed at night.
You won't find that kind of normalcy on Will and Grace. Although the show's writers and producers received a minimal negative reaction from Willow choosing Tara over Oz, the response from viewers and critics alike was overwhelming towards Whedon for killing Tara, accusing him of homophobia.
Particularly because Tara's death came at a point where Willow and Tara had reconciled and were shown following an apparent sexual encounter, the writers were criticized for representing the consequences of lesbian sex as punishable by death.
Series writer and producer Marti Noxon —whose mother fell in love with another woman when Noxon was 13 years old—was unable to read some of the mail the writing team received because it was so upsetting.
To her, the pain expressed in viewers' letters was a logical reaction to the lack of realistic lesbian role models on television. Willow's cultural impact has been noted in several other ways.
Patrick Krug, a biologist at California State University, Los Angeles named a sea slug with traits of sexual flexibility Alderia willowi partly for his grandmother and partly after Willow's character.
