    I know they never officially met, but wasn't there a scene in like Season 2 where Cordelia was running from Spike?

    Eliza has ADHD in real life so maybe that's just something that seeped into her character.

    As far as I know they had a scene together in Halloween where there was pretty much no interaction, and Spike would have been the school with Cordy during the School Hard, but I don't think they met then. I think there's enough to suggest that he would at least know about her, and have some kind of visuals, but its still a little sketchy.

    Do you really think that Spike listened to Harmony? :p

    They did meet on Angel - In The Dark. Clearly Spike recognized Cordy when he told her she looked smashing, and asked if she had lost weight.

    I know but the point of this thread is to discuss if they'd met before that episode. because if not it might be a bit far fetched to believe that he would know what Cordy looks like.

    My point is that, in universe, this is proof.;)

    just noticed in the episode where they killed the judge in s2, before finding out the judge and angel were at the mall, buffy and co. went to the factory and spike was hiding. he would have saw her there too.
     
    Mr Trick: Nice spot.

    Did anyone else think Spike's accent seemed a little too cockney this episode, it just seemed to have more of a twang to it this episode than it does normally in Buffy.

    I would have to watch it again to be sure. I know that sometimes it does jump about a bit.;)

    Was Spike giving Cordelia a backhanded comment when he said "Cordelia, you look smashing! Have you lost weight?", insinuating that she was fatter when he last saw her?

    At this stage of the game he's still evil and he never developed a bond with her like he did Joyce, Dawn or even Willow.

    I don't think it's backhanded. I think he's saying what he knows Cordelia will like to hear.
