Episode Poll: 5.14 Crush

will34
It's awkward writing this part when doing scheduled posts. Like now, I'm writing this one week ahead of time. By the time this posts, I'll be finished with the GRE - the big looming THING in my future. I have no clue if I'll be jubilant or dismayed.

But I guess Crush is something to look forward to, cause guys, I love this episode.

(rambly responses are ♥)

1. He can still wear his trademark leather jacket...but...please...rotate the clothes under it a little more.

Okay, I can agree with this. *latches onto the jacket*

2. *nods to all*

4. Yep yep.

5. So true! I wonder if he knows the circumstances around Darla's death in S1. Because his killing Drusilla for Buffy would be something of a parallel to Angel killing Darla for Buffy. (There are significant differences between the two events, but Spike - with his little moral handicap - would see them as similar)

7. Spike is never gratuitous! ;)

When I first say the episode where Angel kills Darla, I was bothered because it was like Angel proved to Buffy that he loved her and could be trusted by killing his ex-girlfriend. And while the situation was such that he was definitely right to kill Darla, I don't think turning on one's ex is a good way to prove to your current that you can be trusted.

But it turns out to be foreshadowy because Angel can't be trusted, and he does turn on Buffy and try to kill her--after he loses his soul and reverts to the man Darla loved.

Because we never find out if Spike would have been willing to go through with killing Dru, we don't know if Buffy can trust him or not. It means that his degree of trustworthiness is a mystery.
