As everyone who’s finished  Buffy the Vampire Slayer  knows, Giles arranges the assassination attempt of Spike by Robin Wood in the season 7 episode “Lies My Parents Told Me,” after finding out both that the First has been triggering Spike to commit murders and that Buffy had a pain chip removed from Spike’s brain. I could see valid reasons why Giles would be concerned: Spike is dangerous (although the chip thats removal he makes so much of was obviously useless in the event of a triggering...

The scene from “Dead Things” where Buffy beats Spike to a bloody pulp for interfering in her plans to report herself to the police for murder (and yes, there are complications to that, because she’s really angry for other reasons, and angrier at herself than at Spike, not to mention the question of whether or not the homicide would have really been Buffy’s fault even if her memory of committing it were correct) is disturbing, no doubt about it. It’s viscerally painful, both in the sense of...

Sprusilla is possibly my favorite fictional romance of all time. It’s pretty close to being a wish list of my favorite tropes. Plus, you have to respect the couple’s aesthetic, because they have the modern-Goth-immortals thing DOWN. Amy Lee, eat your heart out. With all that said: I can see why, for practical reasons,  BtVS ’s writers would’ve decided to go with Spuffy. As Joss Whedon notes on a DVD featurette (for season 4, I think), Drusilla doesn’t interact well with the larger circle...

I see a lot of fanfic which relies on the premise that Spike is abnormally jealous. Quoth Buffy, “To which I say, ‘Huh?’” He tolerates Dru’s flirting (and probably much more) with Angel until Dru starts snubbing him (”Innocence”; “Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered”; “I Only Have Eyes for You”). Even when he catches her making out with a chaos demon (”Fool for Love”), he doesn’t throw a tantrum. Instead, he asks her why she keeps cheating on him, and seems to want a serious answer....

In season 5′s “Fool for Love,” Drusilla (in a flashback to 1998) explains her cheating on Spike as a result of emotional distance caused by his obsession with and inability to kill the Slayer, despite the fact that the couple is now un-living in Brazil, probably a thousand miles from Buffy or Sunnydale. Dru’s jealousy causes the couple to break up, after which Spike returns to Sunnydale, makes a two failed attempts to kill Buffy, gets chipped, and winds up falling for the Slayer. The rest,...
