Death of Joyce Summers on Buffy the Vampire Slayer Report Abuse
The scene showed a girl of great power who fights treacherous evil very often faced with one of the most haunting and natural deaths of the show (and possibly television): the death of her mother due to medical complications. The scene had no music or theatrics to enhance the moment. It was very real and human.
