People [were not responding to Oz], and so I wrote this scene specifically as the scene that would make them love Oz. Because it’s the scene that makes Willow love Oz. Where he turns her down and refuses to kiss her. Again, you know, gauging the audience reaction is a very big part of the show. Making things not just work, making you not just accept a plot twist or a character, but making you need them. Making you feel about them the way that the character is supposed to. It’s the most difficult and the most important thing. And of course Seth is so beautifully restrained and so completely charming. And look at Aly. Fall in love with him… right now. (x)
