Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Trivia: This is the only episode where actress Amber Benson is acknowledged in the opening credits. This was done with the intent that the death of her character, Tara, at the end of this episode would be more of a surprise for the audience.

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Trivia: Many gay and lesbian rights groups were angered by the decision to kill Tara. Joss Whedon has argued that the decision was made not because Tara was gay, but because she was involved with Willow; had Willow remained with Oz, he would have been killed instead. Killing Tara was a way for the writers to advance Willow's storyline and transform her into Dark Willow for the season finale.
