Another reason I’m not a fan of season 7… I thought Sineya’s origin was just poorly done, and muddied the waters from a metaphor standpoint. Instead of the slayer being a source of feminine power coopted by a male organization, the slayer was created by men through a rape analogy, which also makes the series finale seem less fitting. Buffy forcing more girls to take on the demon when she herself refused to take on more of its power. I would’ve preferred the slayer being created by a group of witches or elders, or even just have slayers being born like any other species. The shadowmen creating the slayer just never sat right with me.
