For his part though, Xander only ever treated her like a little sister. But in season 8, there is a forceful shift toward making fans think of Dawn as a woman. So when she and Xander profess their love for one another — it feels a little strange, to say the least.
When the end of magic causes Dawn to forget their love, they have to start over. Nowadays season 11they are making a real go at it, whether we like it or not. In order to save the world, Buffy again has to make a tough decision — end magic, forever. Though she tries to avoid doing this, knowing it will ruin the lives of so many, including Willow, in the end she is left with no choice. By smashing the Seed, Buffy effectively resets much of the world-building Season 8 had done, which had created a much more supernatural Buffy-verse.
When the gang finds themselves in another apocalypse, they must figure out how to close and seal a dangerous portal. The bond between them, whether as friends or enemies, made for some of the best stories of the series.
This was, no doubt, because Julie Benz was amazing in the role, but also because of how much fun it was to see Angelus and Darla together. We all thought that Fred would go for Wesley, but Angel tricked us there. Although it was soul crushing to witness her rejection of Wes, there was enough chemistry between Amy Acker and J. August Richards to make fans change their minds about whom Fred should wind up with. They were actually happy for a bit. Gunn tried really hard. He bent as far as he could and then he just broke.
Gunn committed a murder for Fred, which is what they blamed the breakup on.

Watching them come together was really cute and it seemed like their love might actually survive some pretty insurmountable odds. They were able to move past Eyeghon, the demon Giles raised in his youth, possessing Jenny. After that, there was the hurdle of Jenny having lied to Giles about basically everything.
Not only did it prove that Angelus was unequivocally evil, but also that Joss Whedon had no problem delivering a proper gut punch.
Robia LaMorte was incredibly likable and Jenny really fit into the Scooby Gang nicely, so it was sad to see her go. Jenny was the only real relationship we saw Giles have and it was cruelly snatched away from him far too soon.
After spending over a thousand years as a demon, Anya had quite a lot to learn about being human. Anya may have had to drag Xander into their relationship kicking and screaming, but she wound up being the love of his life.
They grew together, with Anya learning how to be a human and Xander learning how to be a grownup. He did leave her at the alter, but he obviously never moved on and neither did she. Had she not been unceremoniously sliced in half — which we are also still crying about — these two would certainly have gotten back together. After watching Willow pine for Xander for a season and a half, it was a relief to see her find someone who recognized how amazing she was. Their relationship was both happy and healthy.
It was also the most drama-free romance on the show, despite the fact that Oz was a werewolf. They even continued dating when they went to college together.
However, by the time he did, Willow had already moved on — and so had we. That kind of turned the lore of the series on its head. Spike was a monster to everyone but Drusilla and he accepted her just the way she was, crazy and all. James Marsters and Juliet Landau had the most incredible chemistry.
