Despite this, they began a relationship over time, although it was mutually destructive. In time, Buffy attempted to call it off, and in retaliation Spike attempted to force himself onto her.
This disgusted and horrified Buffy. Disgusted with himself, Spike fled Sunnydale for Africa, where he sought a shaman who could restore his soul in a way to become a better person for Buffy. While this will never make up for his previous deeds, regaining his soul was a big move, and in the years to come, Spike would prove himself a better person to Buffy.
The show Angel evolved through its five seasons into a very different experience to Buffy, but excellent in its own right. This sudden change back to being mortal gave he and Buffy lots to think about, and in response they shared a perfect day and night in what they hoped would be the start of a wonderful future together.
P Anya, never forget and ended with the status quo of the entire world changed forever. Both Spike and Buffy view Giles as an authority figure. They've been tattling to him about each other all episode.
15 Secrets Only True Fans Know About Buffy And Angel’s Relationship
Spike gives Buffy a skull shaped engagement ring. Which is extra ridiculous if you contrast it with the beautiful colladgah ring that Angel gave her in season two's "Suprise. The poor guy is blind and they're still hassling him.
It's just really funny stuff. It showed Angel and Buffy sharing a perfect day and served as a reminded of their tragically beautiful love story. With "Something Blue" we get Spike and Buffy being cute and funny and having undeniable chemistry together.
Between the established romance of Angel and the new "spark" with Spike, there's just no room for Riley. He comes in a distant third for Buffy's possible boyfriends. Next to Angel and Spike, he seems boring and lifeless. Which is ironic since they're the ones who are undead. The show will try everything to make Riley a viable hero. Over the next, season or so we'll get dark Riley, sensitive Riley, funny Riley, super-powered Riley and nothing works.
In my opinion, he was doomed from this episode on. Buffy just needs to be dating a vampire.
My favorite part of the episode: Spike watching "Passions" in the bath tub. He'll be obsessed with the show into next season.
It gives him a vicarious sense of community. There are tons of behind-the-scenes secrets coming from production and cast interviews that only the hardcore Buffy and Angel shippers realize exist.
8 Reasons Angel Is Buffy's BAE (And 8 Reasons It's Spike) | CBR
It turned from the funny and quirky high school drama with vampires to the funny and quirky high school drama with vampires where horrible, awful and tragic things happen. It was during season 2 that Buffy slept with someone for the first time.
She slept with her serious boyfriend and Angel turned into a literal monster. Angelus and Buffy battled and it all ended with Buffy being forced to face Angelus in single combat.
Yet the Buffyverse was better off keeping Angel in it. Nothing can bring out the ire or praise from a fellow Buffy fan than sharing an opinion on which vampire was best for the slayer. Discussing the merits of Buffy and Angel is minefield for even the most level headed Buffyverse fans.
However, the father of the entire franchise, Joss Whedon has his own very specific opinions. Whedon has gone on record several times explaining that he found Angel incredibly difficult to write. Spike, however, was much easier for Whedon to craft. Whedon felt there was far more between the two character.
Though Whedon does admit that Buffy and Angel was his most epic romance. Once Angel left the series, Spike did really start to dominate as a character. He turned from a recurring side player to series regular. Whether Whedon was right to give Spike so much to do, is a matter of personal taste, but at least Whedon committed. Almost everything is the end of the world, whether in a personal or more literal and global sense.
Buffy and Angel have no chill whatsoever. Which is ironic because without warm blood Angel is nothing but chilly.
