I got you now! Actually I agree with that. I don't think that's a bad thing though and I don't think it means they couldn't be together. They have to pull back away from all that world-destroying stuff first, and now that you point that out, I think that's what JW has been doing and why it's taken so long. The intensity level had to be kicked back down again first.
I hadn't even thought about it like that before. Suddenly it's all making a lot more sense than just being frustrating!

I like a little edge, but not too much darkness please! We don't want to destroy the Taraness.

I know! I hate that scene but I love that line! Anya puts it all on the table right there- and she's right!
