I have strayed from the path, but Paul and FFB redeem me...
Oh wait, am I actually channeling Angel here?
Well, heck - yeah, baby, I'm back.

Ok, I have an idea I'd like to share with my fellow Spufflings - all this chat about the best Spuffy episode. How about if we had a rewatch thread? Starting in S2? Of course we'd have to decide on the episodes themselves because not all of them are Spuffy.
Is that a daft idea? Do we all have too much on our plates to do it?
I have never seen Halloween, people!

I'd like that. Just finished with a killer phd deadline yesterday, and now back in my home country. It's been so busy/ stressful and BB has kept me going! Would love a Spuffy re-watch!

Just let me know when and I'll try, but I can't guarantee I'll have time

FFB, we can take the rewatch at any pace you like. It's great to have fun with this but I know we all have busy lives.

Once More With Feeling, when he catches her and tells her that life's not a song or bliss, it's just living, and his voice kind of quivers a little... beautiful moment and it's kind of like both of them forget everyone else, or the world, for a moment there and just exist in their own little bubble. Reminds me of that start of the season when he realises she had to claw her way out of her own coffin.

I agree it's in OMWF but it's not that moment.

OK I have another underrated Spuffy episode to add: Family. Brief but great Spuffy moment where Spike thinks he'd enjoy seeing Buffy getting killed but *obviously* is compelled to help her because he can't help himself. And the banter with Harmony is kinda hilarious, when he tries to hide the Buffy statuette he keeps staring at. He's so very obviously in love. :p

EDIT: Not to mention, I just watched Fool for Love again, and oh my god. I'm changing to including this as one of my top 10 favourite Spuffy episodes. It is such a fabulous episode and richly explores all of Spike's backstory and makes his love for Buffy so much deeper and more layered. And the chemistry between them in this episode is out of this world.

I agree. I'd put it in top 5 even. And you're right about the chemistry; I'm always especially impressed with the cuts back and forth between the seventies and present, Buffy and Spike bantering with the exact moves from the fight he's describing. And the first time I saw this I got chills.

Oh yes! That was No Place Like Home (5.5), came right after Out of My Mind (5.4) when Spike has his revelatory dream.

Fool for Love... That ending scene alone was perfection.

Fool For Love as others say chemistry was insane and Spike never looked better. Smashed for passion, Dead Things for complexity of their relationship, Showtime..the look of love in Buffy’s eyes when she rescues Spike, Touched the tenderness/romance of holding each other, Chosen flaming hands
