when someone says that they wanna go back to that junkyard aka jakku:
I feel like Riley only appreciated Buffy's strength whenever it suited him. Like, her Slayer strength was great; it was useful to the Initiative and, later, to his own demon-hunting efforts. But as soon as her strength manifested in dealing with the her hurt of Joyce's health scare on her own and looking after Dawn, rather than turning to Riley all girly and weepy, he couldn't deal. Kicking demon ass good! Being self-reliant in the middle of personal turmoil... Riley's fee-fees get bruised.
