In season 4 of Buffy, Willow and Tara start out all subtexty. The two have amazing chemistry. Tara teaches Willow magic. Together they can do powerful magic that they can’t do on their own. In the episode “Hush” they join hands to move a soda machine telekinetically, and in “Who Are You?” they do a spell to save Buffy that gets so intense they fall over backwards.
Hm..sound familiar?? The parallels are just..ridiculous.
