Now Leaving Sunnydale
The case for Now Leaving Sunnydale
Buffy's second season ends with her life in ruins - one of her friends is dead, she's wanted by the police for her murder, her mom has thrown her out of the house and, oh yeah, she's just been forced to kill the love of her life and trap him in a hell dimension in order to save the world. On a season-ending cliffhanger, set to 'Full of Grace', she packs a bag and hops a Greyhound out of town, while her mother (and the audience) break down and sob.
Basically, if you can hear the opening notes of "The winter here's cold...and bitter..." and not have a Pavlovian weeping reaction, your 90s televisual cultural experience is incomplete.
