  1. LOL Love story. He tried to rape her! Their sexual relationship was a form of self harm after she came back from the dead depressed. Honestly, did people watch the show?

    • First of all, I don’t see their relationship during season 6 as “self-harm”. She was attracted to him and he made her feel good. He made her feel loved and wanted unconditionally. She was using him to cope with her depression. The guilt of using him and the disgust at herself for sleeping with what she sees as an evil being are unintentional side effects of their relationship, not the goal. This phase of their relationship is certainly not an example of an healthy one, and their overall relationship is certainly not a conventional love story, but it is probably one of the most interesting on television, to my eyes. Ultimately, it is the story of a being who is by nature inherently evil willingly becoming a good person because of his love. It is a story of forgiveness and compassion. It is the story of an unequal romance, but ultimately a romance nonetheless. Unlike her relationship with Angel, she didn’t fall in love with Spike right away. It took time, circumstances and experiences for her feelings to reach a point where they can accurately be described as love. But her feelings for him were always complex, or otherwise he would have been dead long ago. There are many episodes that are lacking from this list to really appreciate the development of their relationship. “Intervention” is an important step in their relationship and in Buffy’s feelings for him. “Beneath you”, “Sleeper” or “Never leave me” and “Touched” contains important scenes that deal with both their feelings for each other. Season 7 is really where their relationship becomes a true love story.

    • Wow resentful much Nikki? Btvs fans love Spike for a simple reason; the guy took his soul back FOR HER. Angel never did it. Angelus never could. Spike loves her with and without soul.. and you argument about the bathroom scene its soo lame, it just shows how you dont understand anything. Spike was soulles at that moment but even then he regrets and go to take a soul. Btvs fans love Spike cause he is unconditional to her. Im so happy for the entire marathon, so you can see their entire evolution plus, go and check all the polls. Spuffy always wins, cause they are the most interesing couple on the series. You spend your time letting hate on a fictional character? Go and get a life! Leave in peace to the people who want to ENJOY it! “You know what, I liked Spike. With Angel it’s too “Romeo and Juliet”. Which means, as soon as it happens you’re bored. Riley, you know he was a well-adjusted person who loved her in a much, much healthier way than the other two guys. Nobody wants to see that. With Buffy and Spike, they had a real Beatrice and Benedick kind of relationship, in “Much Ado About Nothing”. I think with the wedding, she would have tried to do something fast, but he would have made it elaborate and done everything wrong. It would have been extraordinarily counter-intuitive, and awesome!”- JOSS WHEDON
