Buffy, Willow, Xander, Anya, Spike ect. were all at major crossroads in their lives.

Just like life, sometimes when you think the most awful thing has just happened, something worse always seems to follow it.
Melkor
This season was all about exploring how the characters responded to real life challenges, as was the case with the trio.

Season Six of BUFFY is the show's most controversial by far. Sarah Michelle Gellar has stated that she found the mid-season episodes between her and Spike to be degrading and unpleasant and many fans would agree with her. This was the season that Joss Whedon left the show as the day-to-day show runner and turned over the reins to Marti Noxon, though he nonetheless remained deeply involved with the show, supervising the story arcs and individual episodes, as well as writing and directing several episodes.

There is no question that Season Six contained some very memorable moments. There is also little question that the season had some weak episodes--especially at around the two-thirds mark--as well as some not-very-popular story arcs. The least popular aspects of the show was the self-destructive tendencies and actions of all the major characters and the lameness of the show's "big bads," the geek threesome known as The Trio. But in fact, the Big Bad of Season Six is each individual against him or herself. Buffy, struggling with her inadvertent removal from heaven by Willow, suffers economic difficulties, eventually taking a fast food job, eventually numbing herself with a demeaning sexual relationship with Spike. Willow becomes more and more addicted to using magic, to the point that it first threatens to destroy her relationships and eventually the world. Xander, fearful that his impending marriage to Anya cold lead to the same kind of family that he grew up in, leaves Anya a the altar. Anya, crushed by being deserted by Xander, reverts to being a vengeance demon. Dawn's kleptomania gets out of control until the others discover her problem.

Season Six, to alot of fans, was a disaster train wreck! But don't be fooled by their analysis of this season because its one of the best seasons ever of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"! This is the season that took risks, and triumphed unnoticed by the fans, except a few. This season is misunderstood by many who first viewed it and therefore they disliked it, just like they disliked the final season,(Season Seven), but it wasn't because of the stories of this season, it was the gap of broadcasting that ruined the flow of the storyline, and therefore, this season needs another glance again, without interruption, and you'll understand what the point of this season was all about.
Many say it was dark, and yes it was the darkest feeling season since Season Two, and later Season Seven, but life itself, can get dark sometimes, and this was the point the series 6th year was trying to point out. If you've noticed, every season's theme has a metaphor in them, and this year was having the Scooby Gang bracing their darkest storm that could be thrown at them.
How is that? You may say, well, I'll tell you...
Ever since the very first episode, we've grown to love these wacky fun loving kids! In the First Season, it was the introduction period, the Slayer, her Watcher and friends gathering in the library, fighting monster of the week big baddies, along with school issues every teenager at one time or another will find theirselves in, plus a trial of a Slayer. In the Second Season it grew larger, they had to battle not only school, but love hormones, a lover gone bad, new annual baddies, like Spike and Drusilla,and the death of a close one, and trials of a Slayer.

The Sixth Season of Buffy was indeed different. A lot of people seem to have had a problem with the darkness of the season, the emphasis on real life problems. However, I think the creation of the trio was brilliant. This season was all about exploring how the characters responded to real life challenges, as was the case with the trio. What made them so brilliant was the viewer could trace the devolution of the trio from mischivious to truly evil. They were normal people, a trio to match the early trio of Buffy, Xander, and Willow who allowed their greed and discontent to consume them, especially Warren. I found the trio truly chilling, if only because of all the monsters on Buffy, they were the only ones that were a glimpse of what a human being could become in reality.
Moreover, this season had many of the best episodes of the series. Once More, With Feeling is brilliant, I think in anyone's estimation. Tabula Rasa also is very funny. The finale of the season was a slam dunk, and Xander's yellow crayon speech was incredibly poignant. All the characters faced their inner demons by the seasons end; some triumphed, others were left in the following season to pick up the pieces from their disastrous choices.
I also can't wait for Season 7 to be out on DVD

Season Six of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" will not go down as the most celebrated in the series run. But it has already earned a well-deserved reputation as the most darkly adult of them all. A couple of episodes were of truly standout quality, including the Diego Gutierrez-penned psychological set piece "Normal Again" and the oft-praised, Emmy-robbed Joss Whedon musical extravaganza "Once More, With Feeling," which will have you under its spell. There were even a couple of quirky surprise episodes where Buffy lived up to its earlier comedic form, most notably in the episodes "Life Serial" and "Tabula Rasa."
The season started in a difficult place--Buffy's resurrection by her well-meaning friends pulled her out of heaven into the "hell" of Earth--and things never really got better, as the characters began a season-long slide into miasma. Long-time viewers of the show will be able to understand fully the heart-rending moments such as Giles' departure (twice), Xander's continuing troubles with Anya, and the shocking death of a major character in the season's nineteenth episode, "Seeing Red." But enough background material is presented in context that even newer viewers will be able to fathom the significance inherent in these moments. (I should know...this season was my first introduction to the Buffyverse.) They can also grimace as the show's characters, clearly coming apart at the seams, begin to act entirely abnormally...as two healthy relationships grind to a shuddering halt, a third--clearly unhealthy for both participants, though desired by both--explodes on the screen with violent and graphic power, finally culiminating in a shocking attempted rape.
