Scott Allie Confirms Title of Whedon's Last Arc for Season 8


Super Scott Allie just confirmed to us that the last arc of season 8 penned by Joss Whedon will be called "Last Gleaming". Scott also told us exclusively, "We were originally going to call it 'Sunnydale' until Joss came up with this."

Let the speculation begin!

First.......Seriously thou I cant't wait to see how this season ends and then the wait for season 9 wil be how long?

That title is spec-worthy to the nth power. S9 is being planned for a 2011 launch. Which isn't long at all, considering that Joss final issue should hit the shelves in Jan 2011, if there are no delays and the shipping schedule stays the same.

I'm gonna chose the "glow" definition of the word, so that it could become "the last glow". If we take, for instance, the glow to be Buffy's happiness, do we think Angel will die? This is purely speculative. Or maybe... Joss decides to make the vampires sparkly? *vomit*

I can never tell if my comments are getting sucked into oblivion or not lately. It's 50/50:)

Mbatz,

"Sunnydale" was the name at first until JW came up with "Last Gleaming". I kind of have an idea about where this seasons heading, but it might be too out there.

mbatz said...

Michelle, do you think Sunnydale is going to make a cameo - ala, some sort of Earth 2 alternate universe or the past?

"Gleaming" reminds me of the "glow" both buffy and Angel had.

Also, William/spike wanted to use "gleaming" in his poem, but couldn't find anything that rhymed.

And of course, the Star Bangled Banner...

UGH. November can't come soon enough.

mbatz,

Yeah, I'm leaning more towards the alternate universe of the past and present.
