I used to ship Spuffy, until the last time I re-watched Buffy last summer. I felt like Joss had no idea what he was doing with Spike, in late season 5 Spike was awesome, but in season 6 he was hot and cold with Buffy “I love you”, “I’m evil, I hate you, you love me”. And when he had a soul he was still remorseless about the things he did, even to Robin’s mother. Still proudly wearing her coat years later, and Buffy even standing up for him almost killing Robin, just ugh.
ALSO, everyone in the show is doing a phenomenal acting job but TOM FUCKING ELLIS is killing it! He really knows how to use his face bruh. That scene with him lighting the blade almost broke me and he didn't even say a word. JESUS H CHRIST he's good. I hope this show gets at least 6 seasons (that my initial milestone for any new show I watch and love.) simply because HE DESERVES. (to reiterate I love everyone. just felt like saying that.)
