WHY am I surprised by this? Why, why, why? Why do I let him come in and then STOMP my heart?!? I should be used to this by now, right? I mean, let's look at his history with couples:
Buffy & Angel - angst, pain and death. Yea, he came back. Still.
Buffy & Riley - she was mean, he left, she deserved it though. So not really a valid point.
Willow & Oz - painful breakup.
Willow and Tara - Holy COW, painful ending.
Giles & Jennie - Ouch! Painful end just as it began.
Xander and Cordy - painful end for Cordy literally.
Xander and Anya - No wedding, vengeance demon, painful death.
Angel and Cordy - doomed and just stupid.
Fred and Gunn - Yea, that went well.
Fred and Wes - I've still not forgiven him for what he did to this couple.
Wash and Zoe - I've also not forgiven him for this one.
There's a pattern, people. I *know* the pattern. It's his modis operandi and yet, Joss sucks me in and BAM!
Acts 2 and 3 are up of Dr. Horrible. Hurry up before they take it down. It's funny, witty, sarcastic, terrific. Just what we expect from Whedon & Mutant Enemy.
