Daenerys & Missandei (Game of Thrones) vs. Buffy and Willow (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Division IV Friendships under Fire

(15) Daenerys & Missandei vs. (2) Buffy and Willow

Two similar relationships–the blonde who must save the world, and the sidekick.

Two major issues separate one relationship from the other. As Swells brilliantly pointed out, a friendship can’t stand equal to others if one member is serving the other–and while Missandei isn’t a slave, she serves her royal friend.

Dany may braid Missandei’s hair over girl-talk, but Missandei still washes her clothes in a river–no laundry in the Great Pyramid of Meereen, I suppose.

When your friend has to walk two paces behind you at all times, you’re not treating her like a friend.

Also, irritating as Buffy may be at times, she still saved the world, a lot, whereas  Dany’s horrible white savior imperialist road-trip is falling apart at the seams.

Buffy and Willow win this round

  1. I mean, I have to vote for Buffy/Willow, but let’s be honest– if Buffy had it her way, Willow would probably always walk two steps behind her, too.
