I found the treatment for both these characters very peculiar - so much contrast between the first encounter and the last panel. The Buffy ala Bitch is particularly interesting. After all this time and never having seen Spike since her death sacrfice for her and the world, Spike greatest heroic/champion event, and after all their journey together, it is, IMO, such an incongruous encounter between these two.
What are your thoughts on the Buffy & Spike reunion? and how do you think it relates to the treatment very contrasting treatment of Buffy & Angel/Twangel?
I invite all members who might be reading but not posting to please join in the discussion.
I'm browsing the live journals now and I've found that very interesting and made me to laugh:
Buffy: What we did - it released these demons. All over. They're gonna target slayers.
Angel: Are you sure? (nah, Angel, they are gonna target vampires...what do you think? )
Buffy: Well everyone else has. (yep, including your true love, but let's not think about that.)
Angel: I got more powerful not remotely mature (or intelligent for some reason) I'll find you soon.
Buffy: You better. (sigh. But not before I save the world with Spike again.)
Faith: Where's the man-bitch formerly known as Angel?
Buffy: Protecting slayers (because apparently sending out the guy who was targeting slayers and convincing everyone to kill and torture slayers is the best person in the world to send after them. But hey, we're going to keep his henchmen in prison because they are so much more dangerous...you know the henchmen who switched teams and tried to help us stop him.)
Bloody stupid conversation - Buffy is acting even not like a teenage, she is acting like 6-7 year old girl... You can read the whole article here:
What pissed me off more than anything is the dialogue between Buffy and Angel, there was usage of sentences that I characterize as Spuffy. Maybe its unintentional, maybe it’s just me but you all know what I mean (it’s like what you think when you hear the words “you’re the one” or “can we rest” or “every night I save you”.. I know that these are words that anyone can use but I can’t help but relate them to the Spuffy moments that contained them) When Buffy so stupidly –sorry to say- describes what Angel did as perfection and “the best day of her life” it took me right back to Spike’s speech in End of days “Best night of my life” only Spike was talking about being close to Buffy enough to hold her to sleep while Buffy was talking about having spacesex with Angel.
Buffy also while describing says “what Angel did for her she can’t pronounce” it took me back to the same speech by Spike when he said “I’ve done things with you I can’t spell”
