“Anxiety" (detail), 1896, Edvard Munch. Taken by me at the Leopold Museum, Vienna.
“I saw all people behind their masks – smiling, phlegmatic – calm faces – I saw through them and there was suffering – in all of them – pale corpses – who restlessly hurry – rush hither and thither – along a torturous path whose – end was the grave." (Edvard Munch)

get to know me -  [6/5] tv shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Into every generation a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number. She is the Slayer.

endless list of incredible scenes
» Buffy, BtVS (The Gift)

In hindisight, you can trace Buffy’s depression in season 6 back to this moment (and even to earlier episodes: definitely to Joyce’s death, and even in Spiral when she shuts down and decides she has already lost against Glory). Buffy’s depression was about much more than being torn out of heaven, and you can see why in this scene. A lot of people criticize season 6 for being too dark, but I feel that Buffy’s depression was one of best written arcs in the show. 

          (via wouldbeheavenly)

#i actually think buffy’s depression was something she struggled with throughout the series #you can trace it all the way back to when she was killed by the master #but it probably started even earlier than that (via mindycollette)

#Also SMG’s physical performance in The Gift shows how relieved she was to be ending it. She doesn’t look overly frightened for someone who’s about to kill themselves she just looks like “I’ve got to do this. This is all I have left to do and then I’m done.” as though she’s relieved it’s over. She accepts her death pretty readily. It’s foreshadowed with the line “every slayer has a death wish”. Season 5 really felt like it was building up to her death in it’s entirety and there was closure on all fronts and then it was like “Oh no… you have to carry on now. There’s more. You’re not getting out of this.” and it reflects life in that way that it just carries on going even when you’re tired of it.
