You know I love all my children, but the second season always stands out for me because it was the first time we as a writing staff realised what we were capable of, that we really realised the nature of the show, soap operatic elements, continuing stories, what we could do. There was never a better foil for Buffy than Angel - although Faith came close - because Angel hit her where she lived and nobody else ever did and the audience had so much invested in him. Plus there was Spike and Dru and Cordelia… I mean, it taught us what this show could be. And so this season has that place in my heart.
You should never be cowed by authority. Except, of course, in this instance when I am clearly right and you are clearly wrong.
Giles: “Feel up to some training?”
Buffy: “Sure! We can work out after school, you know, if you’re not too busy having sex with my *mother*!”
We interrupt your regularly scheduled Tumblr dashboard to bring you Spike on a swing.
I’m saying that Spike had a little trip to the vet, and now he doesn’t chase the other puppies any more
