Season Liberally With Wild Falsehoods
buffyconfessions:

If they wanted to have Willow get with another woman so soon after Tara death (and with a woman who was so different in personality to Tara) why invent Kennedy when you have Faith. Faith who is all but stated to be bisexual, who Willow had such a long and turbulent past with, who has also gone through a evil/redemption arc and who has all the brash darkness of Kennedy without the annoying.

While I’m behind bi Faith, between the wonky timeline of Season 7/Angel Season 4, where Faith appeared in Angel’s mid-season, but just the last five of Buffy, while Angel’s season ended before the last two episodes of season 7, and the weight of Faith’s previous time on Buffy, I just don’t see there being enough time to properly build it up and establish it while still being true to the characters.
It’s a nice idea in theory, but in practice, I don’t think it really would have worked with the time left to Buffy. Love her or hate her, Kennedy was at least around long enough to have things between her and Willow build up. Not even getting to how what Willow needed at that point was someone who would love her despite the things she’d done, while Faith really wasn’t much for the whole concept of love. I’m not sure that Willow could have done the Slayer spell without someone loving her despite her darkness, and Kennedy, if she were looking for just sex, could probably have found a way to get off with any of the other potentials.
