Willow Rosenberg Navigation menu VideoBuffy The vampire Slayer (3x16) Doppelgangland Willow Danielle Rosenberg was a witch native to Sunnydale, California, a founding member of the Scooby Gang, and the best friend and semi-official sidekick of the Slayer, Buffy Summers. Willow started out as a shy computer nerd, eventually developing her talents to become a powerful and assertive witch. Willow Rosenberg: Man, just ascend, already! Buffy Summers: Evil! Mayor Richard Wilkins: It's been a long road getting here. Willow Danielle Rosenberg was a Sunnydale High School student, witch, and member of the Scooby Gang. Willow Rosenberg is a fictional character created for the fantasy television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (–). She was developed by Joss Whedon and portrayed throughout the TV series by Alyson Hannigan. Alternate Reality Vampire Doppelgänger This version of Willow Rosenberg is a vampire from an alternate dimension known as The Wishverse in the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Like her primary counterpart, she is portrayed by Alyson Hannigan.
Shortly afterwards, Tara is "brain-sucked" by the hell-goddess Glory, left in an insane, babbling state. Ignoring Buffy's warnings, Willow arms herself for a fight and attacks Glory with knives and dark magic, managing to weaken her significantly before Buffy comes to the rescue.
When Buffy later goes into a catatonic state, Willow magically enters her mind and frees her, assuring her that they will find a way to defeat Glory.
In the final fight against Glory, Willow manages to slow her down by restoring Tara's mind, reuniting with her lover. However, Buffy is forced to sacrifice herself to save the life of her sister, Dawn.
In the sixth season, Willow suffers an unbearable loss and faces her own dark side. Her magical skills first peak in the Season Six premiere "Bargaining," when she leads Tara, Xander, and Anya in resurrecting Buffy.
Afterwards, Willow becomes addicted to using magic, and her disregard for the consequences of her actions eventually drives Tara away and lands Dawn in the hospital cf.
With Tara's departure and Dawn's injury, Willow is forced to face her problem and stops using magic. When Tara is murdered by Warren Mears, however, a grief-stricken Willow unleashes the dark energies once more, and her vengeance reaches a climax when she uses magic to flay Warren alive in the episode "Villains".
Willow absorbs volumes of magic as she pursues Jonathan Levinson and Andrew Wells, Warren's accomplices, turning against her friends in the process.
She ultimately absorbs so much power that she is overcome by all the pain she senses in the world. She attempts to trigger the apocalypse to end it all, but is thwarted by Xander who, out of love, refuses to leave her alone, regardless of what she has done or is doing.
This eventually causes Willow to break down over her actions partially because she has absorbed power from Giles that put her back in touch with her true emotions and feelings.
Willow's dark turn is explicitly compared by a character in the show to X-Men's "Dark Phoenix Saga," of which Joss Whedon is a huge fan.
In Season Seven, Willow is forced to deal with her magical nature and her place in the universe after some time in England with Giles. She slowly regains control of her powers and begins a relationship with Kennedy.
After their first kiss, Willow finds herself transforming into Warren, the result of a hex placed on her by a vengeful Amy.
Kennedy saves her by helping her come to terms with Tara's death and move on cf. In "Orpheus", an important crossover with the Buffy spin-off series Angel , Willow battles the being later known as Jasmine, a divine entity and manages to hold her own defense against the attacks, and restores Angel's soul for the second time.
In the Buffy series finale, "Chosen", Willow is able to overcome her dark side and use her powers for good again, changing the rules for the entire Slayer line.
Despite being able to overcome her dark side, Willow's inner demon would occasionally manifest itself. Following "Chosen", the fifth season of Angel continues the Buffyverse, mentioning Willow spending some time with Kennedy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as well as visiting the Himalayas and astrally projecting to another plane cf.
When Amy Madison unleashes an army of zombies on Buffy and her Slayers in Scotland, Willow rushes to her friends' aid cf.
During the battle, Amy tries to infect Willow with dark magic, but Willow manages to overcome it. Reunited with her best friends, Buffy and Xander, after a long period of time, Willow tells them that she and Kennedy are taking things slowly after Kennedy suffered a month-long mystical death.
Amy suddenly kidnaps Willow and presents her to a skinless Warren. Willow takes mental refuge in a plane of elemental beings while Warren lobotomizes her.
When Buffy releases her, Willow has already fully healed. Willow revisits Kennedy and the two dispute about why Willow distances her from Buffy.
Willow admits that she fears that by being around Buffy, Kennedy's life will be jeopardized like Tara's. A demon presents Buffy a glimpse of this dispute, complicating her relationship with Willow cf.
In "Wolves at the Gate", Willow travels to Tokyo with the rest of the scoobies to fight the Japanese vampire gang and recover the Scythe.
While in Tokyo Willow uses a spell to bring giant Dawn to the city and distract the vampires. In the last issue of the arc, Willow fights Kumiko, the witch from the vampire gang; Kumiko reveals to her that she is also a student of Saga Vasuki, a mysterious snake goddess.
At the end of the last issue of the arc, Willow is seen invoking Saga Vasuki. Willow reunites with Kennedy when she and Buffy go to New York in "Time of Your Life".
After Buffy accidentally travels forward to years in the future and meets its current slayer Melaka Fray, a future Willow, driven insane and practicing dark magicks once again, is allied with Fray's nemesis and brother Harth.
Encountering Mel on her own, she convinces her of the necessity to destroy Buffy. In her attempts to rescue Buffy, present-day Willow is forced to commune with Saga Vasuki once more; the tone of their relationship is a sexual one, and Willow is visibly racked with guilt in the presence of Kennedy.
Saga Vasuki warns Willow not to look forward into the future when she rescues Buffy from it. For the first two seasons of the show, Willow was an average human, and thus, had no powers of her own; however, her intelligence, computer skills, and snarkiness made her a major asset to the team.
She aids Giles as he researches information to aid Buffy in overcoming various challenges. In Seasons Five and Six she displays enough knowledge of robotics to repair and reprogram the Buffybot on several occasions.
Willow aids in the preparation of magical materials, making her first potion to detect a witch in the episode "Witch" and performing the ritual to revoke Angelus' invitation to Buffy's house in "Passion", but does not seriously begin practicing magic until the death of Jenny Calendar, one of her teachers.
She is asked to take over teaching the class because of her high aptitude, and one day comes across a floppy disk containing a spell that Jenny Calendar had successfully translated to English, which can restore a vampire's soul.
Willow's initial interest in Wicca lies more in the spell-casting portion rather than the faith itself; she sees magic as a way of hacking the universe, and an extension of her computer hacking skills.
This mentality may have been influenced by her relationship with Jenny, who identified herself as a "technopagan," and was connected to an online pagan network.
Willow's first major spell involves re-cursing Angel with a soul in the Season Two finale, a feat she repeats in the Angel episode "Orpheus.
Season Five finds her surpassing Tara, a more experienced witch, in skill and being able to draw enough power to fend off the hell-god Glory, learning how to cast elemental magicks such as fire and lightning.
In Season Six, Willow demonstrates the ability to bring Buffy back to life, leaving her drained but regaining her magic in a few hours.
Her friend Amy Madison introduces her to a warlock, Rack, who gives her the ability to go longer and do more spells, which leads Willow further down the path to the dark side of magic.
Eventually, after Tara dies, magic consumes Willow and she nearly destroys the world. It is at this time that Anya assumes Willow is now the most powerful Wicca in the Western Hemisphere.
Willow is capable of imbuing herself with superhuman strength rivaling Buffy's, flying, absorbing life from others, teleportation, being impervious to physical damage, emitting high-pitched shrieks in frequencies harmful to human ears, healing herself and others instantly at will, unleashing powerful energy blasts, locating people and objects at a distance even when theoretically protected from such spells , and exerting powerful levels of telekinesis and telepathic mind control.
This mind control even extends to Anya, despite Anya's statement that vengeance demons are immune to mind controlling magics. Season Seven sees her willingness to use magic greatly diminished after the events of the Season Six finale.
Willow spends time at a coven in England with Giles where she develops a better understanding of magic, balance, etc.
At this point, she is so powerful her very feelings and thoughts can affect the world. Amy comments that other practitioners "work twice as hard to be half as good" as Willow.
Despite this, Willow is largely prevented from accessing more than slight magic by The First Evil, who attempts to corrupt her at each spell.
Examples of the controlled usage of her power are her use of telekinesis to practice self-restraint, conjuring force fields, extensive telepathic conversations, opening a portal, and exerting hypnotic control.
In the season premier, Willow receives an apparent precognitive vision of the Hellmouth, although this has only been shown once.
Willow also comments that she now absorbs power from the things around her, one time unwillingly draining some of Anya's and Kennedy's life-force.
At the end of Season Seven, Willow casts a spell that imbues all Potential Slayers on Earth with Slayer powers formerly reserved for only one girl in every generation , temporarily turning Willow's eyes and hair crystal white in the process.
Kennedy remarks on it by calling her "a goddess. Season Eight shows that Willow's powers have greatly expanded since the television series.
She worries that she is not as close to Oz as she could be. They stay together through graduation into college, but Oz is drawn to Veruca , another werewolf.
He admits an animal attraction to Veruca, which he does not share with Willow. He sleeps with Veruca and leaves shortly after to explore the werewolf part of himself.
Willow becomes very depressed and doubts herself. She drinks, her magical abilities are compromised, her spells come out wrong, and she lashes out at her friends when they suggest she get over it " Something Blue ".
Joss Whedon did not intend to write Oz out of the series. Seth Green came to Whedon early in the fourth season to announce that he wished to work on his film career.
Whedon admitted he was upset by Green's announcement and that if he had wanted to continue, Oz would have been a part of the story.
However, to resolve the relationship between Oz and Willow Whedon says, "we had to scramble. And out of the heavens came Amber Benson.
Buffy earned international attention for its unflinching focus on the relationship between Willow and Tara Maclay.
Whedon and the writing staff had been considering developing a story arc in which a character explores his or her sexuality as the Scoobies left high school, but no particular effort was made to assign this arc to Willow.
In , at the end of the third season, the Boston Herald called Buffy "the most gay show on network TV this year" despite having no overtly gay characters among the core cast.
It simply presented storylines that resembled coming out stories. The scene was, upon completion, noticeably sensual to Whedon, the producers, and network executives, who encouraged Whedon to develop a romantic storyline between Willow and Tara, but at the same time placed barriers on how far it could go and what could be shown.
The actors were not told the end result of the Willow—Oz—Tara storyline, not sure what the eventual trajectory of the relationship would be, until Hannigan said, "Then finally it was, 'Great!
It's official. We're in luurrvvve. Whedon made a conscious effort to focus on Willow and Tara's relationship instead of either's identity as a lesbian or the coming out process.
When Willow discloses to Buffy what she feels for Tara, she indicates that she has fallen in love with Tara, not that she is a lesbian, and avoids categorizing herself.
Some critics regard this as a failure on Willow's part to be strong;  Em McAvan interprets this to mean that Willow may be bisexual.
Willow's progression has been noted to be unique in television. Her relationship with Tara coincides with the development of her magical abilities becoming much more profound.
By the seventh season, she is the most powerful person in Buffy's circle. Jessica Ford at PopMatters asserts that Willow's sexuality and her magical abilities are connected and represented by her relationships.
In her unrequited attraction to Xander, she has no power. With Oz, she has some that gives her the confidence she sorely lacks, but his departure leaves her unsure of herself.
Only when she meets Tara do her magical abilities flourish; to Ford, sexuality and magic are both empowering agents in Willow's story arc. Not all viewers considered Willow and Tara's relationship a positive development.
Some fans loyal to Willow reacted angrily as she chose to be with Tara when Oz made himself available, and they lashed out at Tara and Amber Benson on the fansite message boards.
Whedon replied sardonically, "we're going to shift away from this whole lifestyle choice that Willow has made. Just wipe the slate. From now on, Willow will no longer be a Jew.
And I think we can all breathe easier. Love is the most powerful, messy, delightful and dangerous emotion Willow's in love. I think it's cool. I think the show is handling it really nicely.
It's about two people who care about each other. Contrasting with some of the more sexual relationships of the other characters, Willow and Tara demonstrate a sentimental, soft, and consistent affection for each other.
Some of this was pragmatic: the show was restricted in what it could present to viewers. Willow and Tara did not kiss until the fifth season in an episode that diverted the focus away from the display of affection when Buffy's mother dies in " The Body ".
Before this, much of their sexuality is represented by allusions to witchcraft; spells doubled for physical affection such as an erotic ritual in " Who Are You?
As opposed to it being evil, it is an earth-bound force that is most proficiently harvested by women.
In the fourth and fifth seasons, the characters could be shown on a bed, but not under the covers. Hannigan noted the inconsistent standards with the other relationships on the show: "you've got Spike and Harmony just going at it like rabbits, so it's very hypocritical".
Susan Driver writes that younger viewers especially appreciate that Willow and Tara are able to be affectionate without becoming overly sexual, thus making them objects of fantasy for male enjoyment.
Willow and Tara's influence on specifically younger female viewers is, according to Driver, "remarkable".
Academics, however, comment that Willow is a less sexual character than the others in the show. She is displayed as "cuddly" in earlier seasons, often dressing in pink fuzzy sweaters resulting in an innocent tomboyishness.
She becomes more feminine in her relationship with Tara, who is already feminine; no issues with gender are present in their union.
When the series moved broadcast networks from the WB to UPN in , some of the restrictions were relaxed. Willow and Tara are shown in some scenes to be "intensely sexual", such as in the sixth season episode " Once More, with Feeling " where it is visually implied that Willow performs cunnilingus on Tara.
Willow is more demonstrative in the beginning of her relationship with Tara. Where in her relationship with Oz she described herself as belonging to him, Tara states that she belongs to Willow.
Willow finds in Tara a place where she can be the focus of Tara's attention, not having to appease or sacrifice as she has in the past.
Tara, however, eclipses Willow's role as the moral center of the Scoobies, and as Willow becomes more powerful and less ethical, Tara becomes a maternal figure for the group.
She becomes completely devoted to and enamored of Tara, and then manipulates her to avoid conflict when Tara does not conform to what she wants.
Long after Tara's death, Willow faces the choices she made: in the Season Eight episode " Anywhere But Here ", Willow tells Buffy that she is responsible for Tara's death.
Her ambition to bring back Buffy from the dead inevitably led to Tara getting shot and killed. In the one-shot comic, Willow is offered Tara as a guide for her mystical path to understanding her own powers, but rejects her as being an illusion, too much of a comfort, and not a guide who will force her to grow.
She begins a relationship with Kennedy. Following protests angry about the death of Tara, Whedon and the writing team made a decision to keep Willow gay.
In , he told The Advocate about the possibility of Willow having a relationship with a man, "We do that now, and we will be burned alive. And possibly justifiably.
We can't have Willow say, 'Oh, cured now, I can go back to cock! She will just be gay. She is younger, outspoken, and aggressively pursues Willow, who hesitates to become involved again.
The spell is broken when Willow acknowledges her guilt and Kennedy kisses her again. Kennedy expresses that she does not understand the value of magic and assumes it involves tricks, not the all-consuming energy that Willow is capable of.
When Willow eventually exhibits what power she has, it briefly frightens Kennedy. Willow worries about becoming sexually intimate with Kennedy, unsure of what may transpire if she loses control of herself.
In Season Eight , Kennedy and Willow are still romantically involved, but separated during Willow's self-exploration. Unlike her relationship with Tara, Willow is able to hold a separate identity while with Kennedy.
Many viewers hated Kennedy, because they saw her as a way of saying; "Tara's dead, let's move on. After the emotional death of Tara and Willow's reaction nearly ending all life on Earth many fans thought that it was ridiculous for Willow to recover and move on so quickly.
Kennedy overall, has received much hate, but there is the other side who say that she was exactly what Willow needed to recover and continue a happy life.
Susan Driver in Queer Girls and Popular Culture . Willow's religion and sexuality have made her a role model for audiences.
Whedon, however, has compared her Jewish identity to her sexuality, stating that they are rarely made a significant focus of the show.
Buffy essayist Matthew Pateman criticizes the show for presenting Willow's Jewish identity only when it opposes Christian declarations of holidays and other traditions.
Producer Gail Berman states that as a Jew, Willow "handles herself just fine, thank you". In Queer Girls and Popular Culture , Susan Driver states that television ascribes to viewers what lesbians look and act like, and that realistic portrayals of girls outside the norm of white, upper or middle class, and heterosexual are extremely rare.
Realistic depictions of lesbians are so rare that they become strong role models and enable "hope and imagination" for girls limited by the conditions of their immediate surroundings, who may know of no other gay people.
It is a progression that defies strict definition. Manda Scott in The Herald states that Willow's lack of panic or self-doubt when she realizes she is in love with Tara makes her "the best role model a teen could ask for".
When viewers realized that Willow was falling in love with Tara, Whedon remembered that some threatened to boycott the show, complaining "You made Willow a fag", to which he responded, "Bye.
We'll miss you a whole lot. Lesbian-themed HBO special If These Walls Could Talk 2 won an Emmy. Twenty-three television shows depicted a gay character of some kind in Willow and Tara's relationship became the first [ citation needed ] long-term lesbian relationship on U.
Jane magazine hailed Willow and Tara as a bold representation of gay relationship, remarking that "they hold hands, slow-dance and lay in bed at night.
You won't find that kind of normalcy on Will and Grace. Although the show's writers and producers received a minimal negative reaction from Willow choosing Tara over Oz, the response from viewers and critics alike was overwhelming towards Whedon for killing Tara, accusing him of homophobia.
Particularly because Tara's death came at a point where Willow and Tara had reconciled and were shown following an apparent sexual encounter, the writers were criticized for representing the consequences of lesbian sex as punishable by death.
Series writer and producer Marti Noxon —whose mother fell in love with another woman when Noxon was 13 years old—was unable to read some of the mail the writing team received because it was so upsetting.
To her, the pain expressed in viewers' letters was a logical reaction to the lack of realistic lesbian role models on television.
Willow's cultural impact has been noted in several other ways. Patrick Krug, a biologist at California State University, Los Angeles named a sea slug with traits of sexual flexibility Alderia willowi partly for his grandmother and partly after Willow's character.
