lol, that wasn't a joke, that's seriously what's going on with Spike as of October 2010SpaceLord agrees: you really shouldn't write stuff like that....Joss might think it's a great story
No, you're right, I'd say he was most likely talking about the Twilight Universe being soulless. It is portrayed as being a huge jerk, lol--it would give its Big Brother AS3's Connor a run for his money in the jerkiness department.In the comics, I thought the Master was talking about the "soulless" Twilight universe. As I've said before, Jeanty makes me confused.
But yes, I thought of the Spike thing too! I haven't read all of IDW's comics yet, but I've been caught up on what's been going on with Spike. And considering that the new Spike series might be canon (Lynch is writing and I hear plotting with Joss?), a questionably ensouled Spike could be a possibility. I doubt it though...I think #38 made it clear that this story is wrapping up with Twangel/Angel and Buffy, not Spike.
In terms of continuity, I have no idea. Clearly Joss & the Dark Horse team don't want to give a clear answer, but the latest impression I've gotten from Scott Allie interviews is that they'll be regarding all of the books with ties to After the Fall as semi-canon...
lol, how about if Spike & Angel do or don't have a soul based on whether or not Daylight Savings Time is in effect?You know what would be really cool? If Joss didn't use souls, possession or betrayal of a loved one as major plot points in any story he ever tells ever again.
