From the very first episode to the end, Buffy's struggle is shown in her face. Looking at the season through Buffy's POV, I now find it ironic to criticize the First as an ineffective villain. The First planned to turn Buffy against herself and nearly destroyed her several times by pushing her to a state of reckless desperation.[...] Buffy's descent, her breakdown, comes from hit after hit of being forced to face heartbreaking moral choices as she's torn between her desire to stay close to the people she loves, her desire to keep those she loves alive at whatever cost and her duty to protect the world.
