    Which big bad in Season 7 (besides Caleb) were the best villain?

    The Bringers
    The Uber-Vamps
    or
    The First Evil himself

    The First Evil, itself, was the most diabolical villain of the Season, simply because, ultimately, it was behind practically everything that happened in Sunnydale at that time, but being non-corporeal, it was no personal threat whatsoever. As far as the most dangerous fighter of the Season, with the exception of Caleb, I would say that the first ubervamp was, by far, the worst.

    The bringers killing all those potentials. Watching those young women being chased down and stabbed was horrible and unusual to see so consitently, as one seemed to die on everyone of the early episodes. There was no comedy in their deaths, it was just brutal and that seemed unusual on the show. Then to find that the bringers were just puppets, with a hive mind, carrying out the wishes of their master, with no will of their own, made them even creepier to me.

    The First Evil, of course. He's personally responsible for some of the coolest and scariest moments of the entire series. His (its?) conversation with Willow in 7x07 is one of the most blood-chilling things ever.

    The Bringers because they were consistent.

    Anyone else imagining the scoobies just sticking their fingers in their ears and going "la la la la la not listening!" whenever the First tries to talk to them?

    The uber vamps in general didn't do much for me but that one uber vamp that beat Buffy to a pulp was absolutely terrifying.

    The Uber-Vamps looked the most dangerous well atleast for one episode until they were never thought about again.
    The Bringers were really just glorified lackeys
    so i guess it has to go to the First who were kinda cool for the first 9-10 episodes until they went into "remission" and did absolutely nothing.

    There were lots of great scenes with The Bringers. Really violent, creepy stuff. The cliffhanger ending with the Bringer behind Giles, ready to lob his head off was amazing. They looked more realistically scary to me than the ubervamps too, in terms of make-up/prosthetics. The First was mostly stupid and annoying.

    You missed out trigger-Spike. ;)
    Somebody who could've killed Buffy or anyone else at a moments notice whenever the First wished it (at least up until 5 episodes before the finale)

    But out of the ones listed The First was an excellent idea, but poorly executed.
    So- The Bringers- they were a consistent threat all the way through the series.
