Coming back from Afghanistan with a wound, both physical and mental, John finds himself struggling to readjust to normal life. Therapy didn't work, and he barely shows up anymore. His daily life is bland and without excitement, so when he finds a black cat in a box, he can't help but pick it up. Just maybe, it'll provide the companionship that he craves. It's something, at least.
He didn't know just how much the cat would change his life.
He was more than what his programming allowed him to be, and they knew it too.

The Powers That Be - forces of good to balance the forces of evil. Or so they're supposed to be. But Buffy's realm doesn't so much feel balanced as the good always scrambling to find the least devastating outcome, and most of the time only sort of succeeding.
And yet. For beings so supposedly high and mighty, the Powers don't actually do much. Except make it so you have to be slightly demon to get their visions and thus, in turn, make it so everything with Cordy and Jasmine happens, so Connor, so Angel bargains with Wolfram and Hart, so the end of the world (sort of.) Along with a sincere lack of any aid regarding the many, many, many Sunnyhell apocalypses.
So... given how strong the evil in Buffy's world is - maybe the Powers really should up their game, just a tad. Make themselves less of a laughing stock that can have their own thing be taken over and used so easily by someone like Jasmine.
So. Let's fix that. And in turn, break some other things along the way.
