BtVS – Spuffy: The Long Way Home

Buffy:

  • You’re just convenient. (Wrecked)
  • It doesn’t change anything… but if you’re wildly curious, yeah, it hurts. (Hell’s Bells)
  • I have feelings for you. I do. (Seeing Red)
  • I—I feel for him. (Him)
  • ‘Cause I’m not ready for you to not be here. (First Date)
  • But… he is in my heart. (Chosen)
  • I love you. (Chosen)


BtVS Season 8

Somehow, Buffy got the news Spike’s been back – and apparently she hasn’t liked a bit that he didn’t look for her. When they meet again a couple of years after his resurrection, she is very pissed at him:

But she has never forgotten Spike; she dreamed of him:

and as soon as they meet again, she fantasizes repeating their time together:

She did say she missed THAT sex earlier in the year:


BtVS Season 9

Spike, who had gone away with his ship, after the Twilight debacle, returnes to San Francisco and is warmly welcomed by Buffy:

And she keeps flirting with him…

When Buffy thinks she is pregnant and decides to have an abortion, she asks Spike to come and help her:

Until this point, Buffy thinks Spike doesn’t love her anymore – maybe because he didn’t look for her after his resurrection. When Detective Dowling tells her “that vampire’s love with you”, the Slayer is surprised and confronts Spike; he tells her he won’t say “what everyone else already worked out”. Spike goes on saying he wants to be with Buffy, to have normal with her, but she isn’t ready yet. Anyway, she asks him to stay – in her not-so-direct-way to say things, without committing:

but Spike refuses to keep on “lurking around the edge” of her life and leaves.


BtVS Season 10

When Spike, still in love (but ready to move on) comes back to San Francisco and joins the Scoobies for good, he is happy to be friends with Buffy - till she decides that it’s time for them to be together again:

Later admitting, in her not-so-direct-way to say things again, that she is in love with Spike:

And reinforcing she wants to be with him:


All those years, Buffy had been lost. She tried a date with Principal Wood; she slept with Satsu (even not being gay); she hit on Xander (for whom she had never had any romantic feelings and who was dating her sister); she thought of starting a relationship with Detective Robert Dowling; she even tried a speed date to find a suitable partner for her!

But nothing fulfilled her. It has always been Spike for Buffy. Always. Her heart has finally found its way home.

I am he
As you are he
As you are me
And we are all together

See how they run like pigs from a gun
See how they fly
I’m crying

Sitting on a cornflake
Waiting for the van to come
Corporation t-shirt
Stupid bloody Tuesday
Man, you’ve been a naughty boy
You let your face grow long

I am the eggman
They are the eggman
I am the walrus
Goo goo g'joob

The Beatles-I am the walrus
