Here goes:

1. Buffy strategizes as part of her slayer training, so if she thinks bringing the Scoobies along is a good idea, I have to go with that.

2. I have another answer. By the time we get to FFL, I can imagine that William has been making it known (through his poetry and other ways) that Cecily does it for him. She's not interested, and she's not obligated to be interested. So telling him what she told him was completely okay with me because sometimes a guy needs that absoluteness in a rejection in order to understand that there's no hope. Anything weaker was probably not going to do it.

3. I voted the second choice with that one. Everything else seemed to be conflated, so I figure that was too.

4. I think she knew when she looked at him, the way she told him he was made for more, with the burning fishes and such. She saw him, she probably even saw Chosen. But maybe not the context. :)

5. I think they do. It's a hard, short, brutal life with no way out except death in one form or another. It would be hard not to want to just stop after living that life for a length of time.

6. I think sometimes. Less so than previous slayers, probably more so in s6, but I think yes. She's a slayer, one in a long line, and I'd be willing to bet she's lost more than most slayers. Buffy's only human, the slayerness amps up the strength and skills but I don't think the Shadowmen made provisions for the girls' emotional well beings. So I'd be surprised if she never did.

7. I think she did. Hell yeah. There was a few seconds there, where she looked like she was extremely tempted, her lips parting just slightly, her eyes flickering. She wanted, all right.

8. First choice. Spike was tempting her to 'dance', and she was tempted. What she did, she did to wake both of them up to the facts of their situation. But I thought then, like I think now, that she humiliated him horribly and needlessly by throwing money on him and telling him he was beneath her. If Buffy were a man, and Spike a woman, regardless of their roles as vamp and slayer, there wouldn't be a question of how badly she treated him. In fact, Spike gets points taken from him by how horribly he treated Harmony and I never really saw the difference between both situations at different times. I have only seen it once, I can't watch it again. It was too hard for me to see her do that to Spike.

9. Don't make me choooooose!! Okay, I will. Chinese Slayer. It's because she's Asian, and I'm half Asian, and when she turned to Spike and asked him to tell her mother she was sorry, I completely and totally understood what she meant. Whatever the relationship between her and her mother, it's probably very close to the one I had with my mom - Slayer daughter of a traditional Chinese woman, American daughter of a traditional Thai woman....yeah, I identified a lot with that one little request of hers.

10. Nothing on this earth will ever make me believe Spike would have hurt Buffy. NOTHING.

11. No. He conflated and exaggerated like a mad thing. But he must have added some truth, because Buffy knew about the 'beneath me' comment AND his name being William.

12. Spike and the second Slayer. The dialogue, the cuts between past and present, the way he revealed Buffy's death wish, everything was amazing and brilliant and I didn't breath through that whole sequence, not once. That doesn't happen often.

13. Five stars. Of course five stars.
