18 TV Friendships That Are More Toxic Than You Realized
Xander and Willow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
For much of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Willow is the embodiment of goodness and light. Eventually, that changes, but during those early seasons, Xander is taking advantage of her almost constantly. Even though he knows that Willow’s in love with him, he won’t shut up about how much he wants to ask Buffy out. Xander eventually wakes up and smells the hottie, but he definitely could have been more considerate around her when Buffy joins their clique.
Eventually, Xander and Willow develop a healthier bond. But before Willow realizes she’s gay, it’s tough to watch Xander treat his supposed BFF like she doesn’t matter at all, even though she’s way cooler than him.
