After years of Spuffy fanfic, I did a rewatch and was surprised to find Drusilla far saner than she is more often than not displayed by Spuffy authors. She doesn't just have 'bouts of sanity', it's more like bouts of insanity. It's fascinating to me and I'm definitely starting to see her differently, and as someone with far more independence than I used to.I think Dru is more switched on than she presents herself to be. She does have that element of madness to her throughout all her appearances, but in Season 2 she just seems more "with it" than she does in later appearances (I'm talking in terms of episodes). She does have her moments when she flips out over seemingly innocuous things eg the flowers being "wrong" but she's more dangerous and less kooky in Buffy Season 2 (when the focus is on her, Spike and Angelus) than she is in Angel Season 2 (where the focus is on Darla and Dru is essentially the sidekick).
