Deadly Dilemma Of Lesbians In Entertainment "Right when Willow & Tara finally got over their issues and made up - Joss Whedon pulled a plot twist right out of cliché-land. He killed off Tara - violently. He had her murdered - and then had her lover, Willow, go quite insane over it. Willow became the evil lesbian psycho out to destroy the entire world."
In fairness to Joss, wasn't this initially going to happen to Oz? But Seth Green left the show so they gave Willow a new love interest. Being gay had nothing to do with ME deciding to kill off Tara. And frankly, no one on Buffy was having "happy endings".
Good article regardless though. I watch ER and knew they were going to kill off Sandy but I get why. They are trying to show just how difficult it is for gays to be treated as equals.
