  • I don't have any particular interest in Amanda over Dalton, but I am interested why you'd want to save him at this point. Is it just against Amanda or the others generally?

    • Well, like you I don't have much of an interest in either character. But I generally have such a sour taste in my mouth for the Potentials that I think Dalton wins for me by default. I know many possible consider Amanda one of the better and more likeable Potentials but, honestly, I wasn't taken with the actress at all and found her mannerisms annoying. I figured I'd try and see them all go by the next reset.

      After that, I'd still be happy to see AprilBot go before Dalton but I wouldn't fight for it as they pretty much come out in a wash for me.

      My top 3 overall would probably be;

      - Chanterelle/Lilly/Anne (I love her growth throughout BtVS and AtS and find it such a neat idea)
      - Billy Fordham (A great one off character who was memorable and contributed to some really poignant scenes)
      - Catherine Madison (Just a really fun, creepy, MotW villain that worked brilliantly with the show's core themes and who was honestly pretty badass and great in her final scene. I loved the actress and wouldn't have minded seeing her again)

      • I like the fact that Buffy meets Amanda through her job before we see her again in Potential as it gives a better idea of what her character is like before we find out she's a potential. So yeah, I do think she is one of the more interesting ones, but I wouldn't really put her ahead of most of the characters we have left. She's more interesting to me than Dalton but probably on a par with Clem. Otherwise, I'd put the others ahead of her.

        I agree Chanterelle is a character that has interesting growth and the greater development and how she goes on to help others as she does in AtS really adds a lot to the character. She would probably win the round for me if I was including all of that but I'm drawing a line at Anne as we're just looking at BtVS. I think I'd still consider her for the top three though, because even discounting her wider progress in AtS, the potential that is presented to her at the end of Anne to begin again is still interesting against where she started and had initially moved on to when Buffy first meets her again in LA.

        I can understand putting Ford as a contender for the top three too, his situation and response to it makes for a very interesting and memorable plot, but it would be him or Chanterelle battling for the third slot for me as I feel more certain about my other two personal picks.

        Firstly, I totally agree about Catherine Madison as a character and especially how good a job the actress did. She was excellent and is a definite top three for me. But my other would be Ben because I found his struggle, the successes and outright failures and the situation he was in really interesting. In contrast to Catherine Madison I don't think the actor was great, but I think the character was really very interesting. I think he's the one I'm likely to find I don't get as much agreement on though but it would be him or Catherine I'd put first I think.

        I do really like D'Hoffryn as well though, so I think that is probably my top five. Ben, Catherine Madison, Ford, Chanterelle and D'Hoffryn.

        • I love S7 but the way Amanda treats Dawn post vampire fight just grates on me. Once she finds out she's a potential she drops Dawn like a stone. Not on my watch Amanda, not on my watch

          • Dalton's not even a fully wrought character. Too flat compared to all the rest. I'm not saying I'm a fan of Amanda, I'm saying she constitutes a better supporting character than Dalton.

                You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.
