Still swooning

Scully, Maclay & Mills

"Whedon was initially not allowed to show any kind of sexual interaction between the two and so came up with further means of subverting the networks. The first on-screen kiss comes within ‘The Body,’ a powerhouse episode dealing with the loss of Buffy’ mother, in which Tara kisses Willow to try and calm her down. This moment stands as a remarkable television cheat-by slipping the kiss into an emotionally heavy, devastating episode there’s no focus on it. The kiss occurs naturally between the characters and feels utterly fitting within the scene."
