Episode Poll: 5.07 Fool for Love

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!

Poll #1817396

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

FFL! WHEEE! One of my very favorite episodes!

1. Yes. Riley was never a lone gunman he has always hunted in teams.

2. My kneejerk reaction is yes, but really I think it's more complicated than that. She obviously had no interest in William. He was obviously oblivious to that fact. I think the real answer is somewhere in the middle of the two.

3. Oh. Hell. Yes. He considered it "poetic" justice.

4. Yep.

5. Maybe not at first, but I think the 24/7/365 nature of the role gets to them.

6. Yep. Sometimes.

7. Oh hell yes she does

8. Mean. And form the way it's juxtaposed over his origin story we're meant to think it's mean.

9. Subway Slayer FTW!

10. Would he have shot the gun? Yes. Would he even possibly have injured her? Uh huh. But I doubt he'd have gone through with actually killing her.

11. No. He was spinning an "always been bad" yarn for her. His image is everything to him. Plus, Buffy isn't needlessly cruel. I highly doubt she'd have used the phrase "beneath me" if she knew its relevance.

12. Subway Slayer!!!

13. ***** Five stars!

3. Darn right he did!

11. This is true.
