"What if" with Scott Allie, Redux

"What was Cordy, would Xander still have left her at the alter?"

It's a toughie, the stuff fandom 'shipping debates are made of. We honestly didn't know how Super Scott Allie would react to such blasphemy, but he did it on the spot and with poise. You can listen to his answer in full, below:

Here's an exerpt:

"Wow. I my gut reaction is like yeah, he definitely would have because if anything, the Cordelia relationship was more dysfunctional. But at the same time, and I'm sure this is gonna put me in hot water, I think, if anything, Xander did love Cordy more genuinely than he loved Anya...but Cordy abused Xander way more. Anya and him didn't really work, but I do think Xander loved Cordy more, but I still think he would've bailed - unless things had gone radically differently. But if say Cordy hadn't left for LA, she stayed in Sunnydale, they continued to date for another couple of years and then they were going to get married: I very much could see him leaving her at the alter.

Poor Xander.  He's just a mess. He can't function."

That answer only confirms my low opinion of Xander Harris. If he really loved Cordy more than Anya, that is a very sad reflection of his relationship with Anya. You really can't blame the girl for going back to her demon nature, after that bullsh@#. Sorry, this subject makes me angry, and now I want to slap Xander upside the head all over again. You don't want to marry a girl? How about you don't frakin' propose to her. End of rant :)
