Episode Poll: 5.07 Fool for Love

will51
Fool for Love! I'm so excited!

William! If some of these look familiar, it's because I've kinda done polls for this episode in the past. I'm a fan of recycling...but there's new people and maybe your opinion's changed! Also, new questions! Have at it! Seriously, I had to stop myself. I was coming up with far too many questions. It's not fair to the other episodes.

Let's do this!






1. After Buffy is stabbed by a vampire, Riley offers to patrol. Buffy insists that he take the Scoobies along with him. Reasonable?

Yes. Buffy just got almost-killed by a regular vamp. Strength in numbers is smart.
121(81.8%)
No. Riley can handle himself.
13(8.8%)
I have another answer.
5(3.4%)
Not sure.
9(6.1%)

2. So...Cecily?

Unreasonably rude to William.
86(58.1%)
Eh, William was probably being a creepy stalker guy. He deserved the smackdown.
24(16.2%)
I have another answer.
18(12.2%)
Not sure.
20(13.5%)

3. Did William actually go back and drive railroad spikes through those party-goers' heads after he was turned?

Well, yeah. That's how he got his name, right?
100(67.6%)
Nah. That was part of the joke about how he got his name
33(22.3%)
I have another answer
5(3.4%)
Not sure
10(6.8%)

4. So did Drusilla actually use her super-seer sense to realize how fantastic Spike would be when she turned William?

Yep. Hence the whole talking about his greatness and effulgence and such
89(59.7%)
Nah, Darla showed that she would have done that to the first person she saw. She wanted a playmate.
36(24.2%)
I have another answer
10(6.7%)
Not sure
14(9.4%)

5. Do all Slayers have a death wish?

Yes
56(38.4%)
No
40(27.4%)
I have another answer
17(11.6%)
Not sure
33(22.6%)

6. Does Buffy have a death wish?

Yes
17(11.4%)
Sometimes
109(73.2%)
No
15(10.1%)
Not sure
8(5.4%)

7. Does Buffy want to dance?

Yes, of course!
30(20.7%)
Maybe a little, though she wouldn't admit it
99(68.3%)
No way.
7(4.8%)
Not sure
9(6.2%)

8. Buffy shoved Spike to the ground, threw money at him, then gave him the ultimate put down.

Wow. That's mean.
55(37.4%)
Nah, Spike was being a jerk. She had reason.
62(42.2%)
I have another answer.
18(12.2%)
Not sure.
12(8.2%)

9. The Chinese Slayer or the Subway Slayer?

Chinese Slayer
38(26.2%)
Subway Slayer (Nikki Wood)
107(73.8%)

10. If Buffy hadn't been crying - and assuming his chip wouldn't disable him - would Spike have shot and killed Buffy?

Yes
16(10.8%)
No
86(58.1%)
Not sure.
46(31.1%)

11. Did Spike tell Buffy the truth about his past as a bloody awful poet and his rejection by Cecily?

Yes
23(15.4%)
No
112(75.2%)
Not sure
14(9.4%)

12. Which flashback did you like best?

William getting turned by Drusilla

Spike killing his first Slayer
18(12.2%)

Yay! Just what I need as a respite from flat cleaning, a poll. :)

1. Yes. If it weren't for Riley, Buffy would be dead. No way is she going to let anyone patrol on their own and risk something like that happening to them.

2. Another answer. She's horrible and rude, yes, but I don't think William would've really understood that he had no chance whatsoever had she been anything but horrible. I think he would've managed to delude himself that she was being coy or whatnot. Also, I like to think that, in the past, she had tried to let him down gently, but he just couldn't take a hint. Doesn't make her behaviour any less painful for William, but I think she was totally exasperated by the time of the party and decided to give him a very painful, very rude awakening.

3. Course he did. Maybe he offered them a choice of listening to his poetry or getting spiked through the head, and they still chose the spikes.

4. I'd like to think that she saw something in him.

5. No, cause generalisations - not good.

6. Sometimes. She's still not at that stage at the time of the episode, methinks.

7. Not sure. At this point, it's a no, but 'no way' was a bit too emphatic for the 'no' I had in mind.

8. With all the reasons he's given her, he got away lightly. The guy's just told her that she is gonna acquire a death wish, and that, when that happens, when she's at her most vulnerable, he'll find a way to kill her. I think that's a little bit worse than having his feelings hurt.

9. The subway slayer. She's got a dangerous vibe. The Chinese slayer's got a Karate Kid vibe.

10. Yes, and then he would've immediately regretted it.

11. No way. He's got an image to uphold. Besides, we learn here that what he was telling everybody about his breakup with Dru is completely different from what really happened. He also told Buffy that the subway slayer begged for her life, which she clearly didn't. He's self-mythologising like Robert Lowell on crack.

12. I can only tell you what my current fave flashback is, cause that changes all the time. I chose the last one, because the Chaos Demon blowing a kiss at Dru never fails to crack me up.

13. 5 stars. One of my faves.


Also, I find it a bit disturbing how this blonde, blue-eyed dude offed a Chinese woman and a black woman, and then fell in love with a white, blonde woman. Unfortunate implications. Though you'll probably cover that little thing in your feminist analysis later on. :)

3. lol!!! Brilliant.

8. *nods*

10. I can see that.

11. Totally. He's constructing the story of Spike.

Also, I find it a bit disturbing how this blonde, blue-eyed dude offed a Chinese woman and a black woman, and then fell in love with a white, blonde woman. Unfortunate implications. Though you'll probably cover that little thing in your feminist analysis later on. :)

Totally will! Something to look forward to! :)
