You know what? I don’t. (Spoilers ahead) Granted, the way it was promoted made it look like they would spend the whole season on the abortion subject, and that obviously didn’t really pay off, HOWEVER, the decision was made, the point was made, that’s what’s important.
They addressed the controversial subject of abortion in exactly the right way, in a very sensitive and realistic manner, I don’t think the robot plot invalidates that. Regardless of anything, Buffy had the right of choice and decided to get an abortion, reminding me why I think she’s the best female hero ever, and once again, making me proud.
YES, I’ve already seen it TWICE and it’s spectacular, EPIC! Check my review here: http://bit.ly/Iyeg8l
Anyway, I’m getting this question a lot, so instead of answering one by one as I was doing before, here you go, spoilers after the jump.

07. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: SEASON NINE #6. Joss Whedon, Andrew Chambliss, and Georges Jeanty.
I wrote about this moment from a recent issue of Buffy in extreme detail several columns ago, so I won’t bore you all again with it, except to say it was one of my proudest moments as a feminist and Buffy fan to see such a complicated and controversial issue dealt with in such a remarkably honest and sensitive way. I’ve never been prouder of Buffy or Joss Whedon (and that’s saying a lot).
Initial thoughts under the cut!

Buffy Season 9 #7: SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!! I was about to post my thoughts, but Mari’s post sums it all up, there’s no need to add a lot of things, only that I really enjoyed this issue. Characterization, dialogues, character development… is all top-notch and that’s what matters the most for me. I’m REALLY enjoying how they’re developing the relationship between Buffy and Spike, and the Bugs are awesome! Especially Seb.
