Just needs to be QFT again. Whoever wrote 'Choices' and 'Prom' and so forth should sue the comics writers. Should have seen this one coming when Spike was basically turned Angel-lite early in the Season. Have to say though that I'm glad none of the comics stuff ever happened in show form and 99,9% of the people who watched Buffy will never know this crap existed. Buffy had already learned that mortal/immortal or human/vampire JUST DOESN'T WORK. Over a decade ago. She is a joke of a character who is never allowed to learn or grow up EVER. Again thank God for Faith.Heh, the first page is essentially the Buffy/Angel break-up of season 3. Kind of sad to think Buffy has yet to learn that "vamps don't grow old with you" lesson. Spike may have had a "daft poet's notion" of true love, Buffy at this point just seems daft.
The B/S relationship has always been all about Spike. Why should this be any different?Way to make it all about you Spike.
Angel broke up with Buffy in 'The Prom'. Long before the GD apocalypse.This is like Angel breaking up with Buffy in the middle of friggin Graduation Day. This is beyond lame.
Angel broke up with Buffy in 'The Prom'. Long before the GD apocalypse.
Ahh, gotcha.Yeah I meant to type 'like if Angel broke up with Buffy during GR...' the difference one less word makes.
Well that's just in keeping with their relationship on BtVS then. She was always the pusher and he was the cautious one.And even so, in that case Buffy at least forced the issue a bit during 'The Prom' while Angel was trying to wait for a more opportune moment.
Well timing has never been Spike's thing. Why it would be any different now? It's not like these characters are known for growth. This isn't AtS.Honestly I really thought Spike would wait until AFTER the dangerour end-of-the-world scenario to do the whole break-up thing. This is just unbelievable.
Well they could still go the route of 'it was all the book' if they wanted to. I remember that was a really popular theory early in the Season when Spike was all Angel-lite and Buffy was more of a moron than usual. And we have seen Spike with the book.Is there any chance Spike is possessed? Or it's a Spike-bot? Under a spell? It just doesn't seem like Spike, and more importantly I don't like it
Buffy hasn't regressed in any way. Buffy has been stagnant since the show. Because no one is actually interested in turning her into an adult. Or at least someone with a working brain. There have always been one or two incedents towards the end of each Season where you think Buffy reached a break through. Only for the writers to hit the reset button at the beginning of the next Season. Buffy's growth arc from S1-S4 was nicely done. Only for it to become stagnant when she gets a kid shoved at her against her will (completely with fake memories probably undoing some of that growth) and then become nothing but a tool to be handed around from one bed partner to another. If Buffy were actually allowed to grow over the whole duration of the show, Spuffy wouldn't have happened this Season. Because Buffy knows that vampire/human just doesn't work, EVER.maybe this has to do with buffy's major regression. since s8, shes been acting like the immature child i was annoyed by in that one episode in s6 where she went invisible and did whatever. half the things they write for buffy's script i have to re read to try to find her voice, but sometimes i cant.
Buffy has never needed anyone to hold her hand. It always ultimately fell to her to fight the fights. Having support and having your hand held are two different things. 'Anne' proved that Buffy has always been capable of providing for herself if need be. What Buffy had was support, not people holding her hand. What Buffy in the later years ignored was her support system and that largely led to most of her problems. She pushed her friends away in S6 because they cared to much. Like what? Since when are caring friends a bad thing? Oh right it's the Spike show that's why. At least in S6 it can be explained away that clinical depression might make someone think like that. But what excuse is there for S7? My guess would be that Buffy suffered something similiar to Stockholm Syndrom, hence her unhealthy co-depedency on Spike to the point where she appeared completely bonkers. And it caused the same problems as in S6, she ignored her support system. Spike didn't help this much with his constant cheerleading because all it did was inflate Buffy's ego to the point where she was all 'my way or the highway'. Topping it off with Buffy listenting to Holden of all people, a soulles vampire looking to mess with her head. All signs that Buffy was completely off her rocker.see i saw growth in buffy during season 7, i thought she grew stronger by the end, like she was able to handle things without people holding her hand. i thiught it was what the writers were going for after season 6 buffy "i can save the world but cant pay my bills," especially with her shutting giles out after the spike thing went down with wood.
