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.

No. He's like a serial killer in prison.

Buffy heard from Darla herself in s1 that you can love without a soul, and she accused her of just being jealous. She uses Dru as a shield in s2 to use Spike's love of her against him. She's blatantly lying here, or refusing to accept truth IMO

If I can express my opinion: I don't think that Buffy's lying. She really believes that, without a soul, no one can love, especially since her whole experience with Angel/us. She has a strong concept of love and thinks that after the soul is gone, the ability to love is also gone. And Spike proves she's right with his behaviour in this episode.

I can see Angelus reshaping her view, but I don't think Spike makes or breaks the case here. I'll adjust my answer to she's in denial about it due to Angelus. Angelus is an individual; not the set rule for all vampires.
