Stuck In The Middle
- Jan 2, 2018
By which I mean his seemingly sudden and occasionally conveinent changing from an amiable, nebbish, magic dabbling Nerd to a stone cold bad-ass. I know he was Ripper before taking to tweed but this felt almost like a split personality, comforting Buffy as best he can after the death of her mother in episode 16 and then coldly suffocating Ben in episode 22. Being basically his old self, aside from the abandonment, in OMWF, after verbally abusing Willow in Bagining (he may have been right but he was still pretty harsh) and let's not even mention his conduct near the end of season 4. It was almost like he wanted Buffy to die or at least he didn't care.
