And she is...coherent character for once
As for Buffy's death, I think that it's pretty obvious that the Scoobies went to great lengths to actually conceal Buffy's death, as illustrated by the reactivation of the Buffybot, both as an aid in the nightly patrols, and as filling the role of Dawn's guardian to the School Board. Obviously, if the bot could attend a PTA meeting without arousing anyone's suspicions, they all thought that she actually was Buffy.And she is...
On that specific situation - be there for someone you care – Hank is really worse than a soulless vampire. He is a father and didn't care that his two children were in pain and alone after Joyce's death (I doubt he knew about Buffy's friends and even if he did, it doesn't matter), or that Dawn had lost her only relative, after Buffy's death. He didn't even called after Joyce's death, I remember Buffy waiting for a call that never happened.
Yeah, I had forgotten that. But I doubt that Hank would have come for Dawn, anyway.As for Buffy's death, I think that it's pretty obvious that the Scoobies went to great lengths to actually conceal Buffy's death
Yeah, but we are talking about feelings here, she feels that Spike, as a soulless demon, was less selfish than her father.I don't remember Hank Summers trying to murder anybody, traffic in demon eggs or sexually assault Buffy. Hank is guilty of being a selfish, absentee father-figure but honestly we all need to get some perspective here. Hank Summers isn't a patch on unsoulled Spike.
Well, the script seems to suggest something else entirely:But I doubt that Hank would have come for Dawn, anyway.

Yeah, he could. But I doubt he would. And he didn't call. Poor Dawn, gets a call per year, maybe, and then waits for the next, to no avail.Xander: See, if he thought the real Buffy was gone, he could take Dawn away.
Hank isn't worst than a killer, and Buffy doesn't think that.'Cause there's no way Hank was more selfish as Buffy's father than Spike as her lover.
And... as I already pointed, Buffy will say: "Spike, I knew about all the evil things you did in the past, but now, after seeing it, feeling it, I can't be with you right now, sooo sorry, bye!”Maybe Buffy has forgotten some things about Spike, but by some spoiler descriptions for the next issues, I think she is going to have a vivid reminder of what was soulless Spike.
But the fact is that Buffy has already seen and felt all the evil things that Spike did in the past, because Spike did it too against her.And... as I already pointed, Buffy will say: "Spike, I knew about all the evil things you did in the past, but now, after seeing it, feeling it, I can't be with you right now, sooo sorry, bye!”
Cordelia/Jasmine used that excuse with Angel.
I'd be surprised by this unfortunately. When we've had flashbacks to soulless demon Spike from 'LMPTM' onwards he's basically been portrayed as some sort of badass anti-hero type, rather than as the monster we saw when he first turned up in Sunnydale.I think she is going to have a vivid reminder of what was soulless Spike.
Better to say 'when you didn't have a soul.'It's correct to say "you have not had" ? it sounds strange
That was show!Buffy. ComicBuffy is a moron and this story is all about Spike's angst so far. It would not surprise me at all if they wrote her as unaccepting of the fact that vampires murder and torture people.And generally I agree that Buffy wouldn't (or at least shouldn't) react the same way to seeing Spike's past as Cordelia did to seeing Angel's. Buffy saw what a vampire was capable of first hand when she was seventeen and still managed to distinguish between what was man and what was monster.
