Spoilers Am I the only one voting for the vampires in this episode? Watching Angel beat up Riley is a flat-out guilty pleasure. And the Scoobies are so fractured that it’s hard not to admire Spike’s skills as he plots to split them up. Spike and Angel are my two favorite characters, so maybe I’m biased, but I really love watching them dominate this episode. You shouldn’t skip it if you’re watching on DVD. In this episode, Spike tries his hand at facilitating the split of Sunnydale’s own Fab-Four. Not by harming them or cooking up some new magical scheme, but by letting their own insecurities and unresolved problems destroy their friendships.
It features an independent, rebellious, belligerent and strong-willed Harry who will not take any shit from anyone. The story begins abruptly but things will be explained better as the chapters progress. There is major Snape and Dumbledore bashing.

But it turns out that Billy Idol may have been inspired by a chance encounter with sweet William, prompting him to adopt his spiky bleach-blonde hair, sexy sneer, painted-on trousers, eyeliner, and safety pins for days. Buffy corrects him, revealing that Idol was the real image thief. At another point in the episode, we see Spike in a very familiar getup as he battles and defeats his second slayer, Nikki Wood, on an abandoned New York Subway train in By that metric, the fashion-forward Spike must have cultivated his look prior to , when Billy Idol came onto the scene with his first band, Generation X.
Despite her rampant infidelity, he remains devoted and doting until she leaves him for good when she sees he has feelings for Buffy. Despite all that passion, he seeks to better himself; no other vampire has chosen to become re-ensouled. But me, I fought for my soul…Almost did me in a dozen times over, but I kept fighting ’cause I knew it was the right thing to do. In the comic, Spike runs into Halfrek in an L.

Feel free to call them out if you do. Here’s some stuff from Army of Darkness for Ash in the spoiler block below if you want to take a look: Ash tanks a sword slash after the hundred foot fall, but is still with it enough to de-horse the knight who attacked him. She has to be at least a 10 tonner as you can see her push over gigantic stone columns. Ash is able to use judo to take her out.
Define “get together.” If you mean first kiss, that would be in Season 4 Something Blue–but they were under a spell at the time. “Once More With Feeling,” is the second time Buffy and Spike kiss and the first time they have sex is in season 6 episode “Smashed.”.
Jerkass Has a Point: Kennedy might be seen as The Scrappy but when she offers Buffy a job she’s pretty on the ball about bodyguard work, a vampire loving world, even tapping into Buffy’s fears. She brings up not destroying Tincan might help restore magic, and in turn Willow. Even though they split up it doesn’t mean Kennedy doesn’t still care for her, and it might get some people off Buffy’s case for what she’d done.
Andrew had set up a Deus ex Machina to deal with Simone: Buffy might be read for it, maybe, possibly. Andrew being Andrew he was being far too clever for his own good, a much simpler solution would have been to use the bot to lure out Simone. The witch coven in “Wonderland”.
Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase “Blood and Fog” starts very slow, and when you finally manages to get into the storyline, you stumble across some mistakes and annoyances concerning the portrayal of Spike that keep you wondering which will be the next thing that will make you hit the ceiling. It’s very disappointing when you buy a book hoping to enjoy a good story with your favorite character and ends up finding out that the author haven’t even bothered to do some research about him, and therefore avoided making such primary mistakes like portraying Spike as a “white-haired lad” in the flashbacks did he use to bleach his hair in , already?
However, through the book, you keep getting references to Spike as “serial killer”, “the loser vampire of all time”, “evil”, “every human’s enemy”, “bloody thirsty killer”, “murderer”, “thing”, “predatory animal”. Spike, besides evil, is a moron; at least one time, he doesn’t get what Buffy says making him, besides dead, brain dead, as Buffy points out , and is bad at math.
Towards the end, the author concedes a little bit, and Spike is shown as not soooo evil – but then, too little, too late.
Celeb Crush: Buffy and Willow discuss theirs, specifically Buffy’s being Daniel Craig becomes a Running Gag, and in a sheer bout of coincidence Faith complains that when Angel hook Spike and Harmony back up he didn’t also get the actor for her.
So even as I gave up the ghost on blog entries, I continued to jot down impressions of episodes and rank them within seasons. My re-watch ended up taking over three years! This summer, I dug everything up, and several hundred index cards and a spread sheet later, I have the complete list. In my heart, though, I love both series through and through and can find something of worth in every episode. The spread sheet is embedded at the end of the list with episodes listed in alphabetical order.

DeKnight and Drew Goddard directed by David Greenwalt Egregiously tone-deaf, sorely misplaced comedy episode that derails the building momentum toward the series finale. As everyone reels from the death of Fred and the impending apocalypse, Angel and Spike go on a goofball mission to Italy and match wits with a never-seen, never-before-mentioned nemesis.
DeKnight directed by Steven S. DeKnight Season four accelerates its downhill slide with evil Cordy giving birth to Jasmine.
Buffy and Dexter
Gone But Not Forgotten: Angel in Buffy Episode “Amends” I. Nightmares are one of the best angsty issues for a couple of reasons. One, there’s not a lot one can do to stop them. Two, it tends to be kind of of embarrassing to admit you’re being haunted by skawey dweams.
The actress is now married to another Buffy costar, Alexis Denisof, who played Wesley Wyndam-Pryce on Buffy and its spinoff Angel, and the couple has two daughters together.
This mystical calling endows her with powers that dramatically increase physical strength, endurance, agility, accelerated healing, intuition, and a limited degree of clairvoyance , usually in the form of prophetic dreams. She has returned from death twice and is known as a reluctant hero who wants to live a normal life. However, she learns to embrace her destiny as the vampire slayer.
Giles, rarely referred to by his first name it is later revealed that in his misspent younger days he went by “Ripper” , is a member of the Watchers’ Council , whose job is to train and guide the Slayers. Giles researches the supernatural creatures that Buffy must face, offers insights into their origins and advice on how to defeat them, and helps her stay in fighting form. Buffy is also helped by friends she meets at Sunnydale High: Willow is originally a wallflower who excels at academics, providing a contrast to Buffy’s outgoing personality and less-than-stellar educational record.
They share the social isolation that comes with being different, and especially from being exceptional young women. As the series progresses, Willow becomes a more assertive character and a powerful witch, and comes out as a lesbian. In contrast, Xander, with no supernatural skills but very athletic, provides comic relief and a grounded perspective.
It is Xander who often provides the heart to the series, and in season six, becomes the hero in place of Buffy who defeats the ” Big Bad. The cast of characters grew over the course of the series. Buffy first arrives in Sunnydale with her mother, Joyce Summers portrayed by Kristine Sutherland , who functions as an anchor of normality in the Summers’ lives even after she learns of Buffy’s role in the supernatural world ” Becoming, Part Two “.
Though in some circles , it might be considered shameful even in the context of marriage if you enjoy it, or have it for reasons other than procreation or “spousal duty. Slut-Shaming someone who didn’t have any choice in the matter , by the way, is an even worse Kick the Dog than regular Slut-Shaming, and doesn’t do anything to help an already traumatic situation. Sensible Heroes, Skimpy Villains is a form of sister trope. Compare All Men Are Perverts , which when applied judgmentally can be considered a society-wide form of Slut-Shaming leveled against an entire gender.
Contrast Virgin-Shaming when a character is ridiculed for being a virgin instead of not being one.
All of them combined put up a better threat, as Buffy and Angel will have a harder time focusing on all three of them at the same time if buckshot is being sprayed throughout the battle field as well.
Sorry, something has gone wrong. Thats a really complicated question to ask, because whats between them is very unconventional. Buffy is resurrected and pulled out of heaven. Because of this she’s depressed and emotionally numb. She’s shut off from everything and has very little in the way of feeling. She tells him the next episode ‘Tabula Rasa’ S6,E8 that it was a mistake but ends up kissing him again anyway.
She first has sex with him in ‘Smashed’ S6,E9. He’s found out he can hit her and they’re in the middle of beating the crap out of each other when Buffy turns it into sex. The next morning she’s disgusted with herself. They continue to sleeping together as a means of escapism for Buffy until ‘As You Were’ S6,E15 when she breaks it off telling him she’s been using him and she can’t love him. Then in ‘Seeing Red’ S6,E19 he tries to rape her in her bathroom.
She stops him and says “ask me again why I could never love you?! He’s slightly insane with guilt and the first are playing with his head.

Apr 11, · Buffy’s intro helps set up Angel’s solitary existence in Los Angeles as that much more tragic and logical given his love for her. When the episodes are reversed, Angel’s own pain is a little more difficult to process and therefore his actions in that episode feel more out of character for him than they would otherwise.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Although a feature film of the same title in was based loosely on his original screenplay, Joss was not satisfied with the translation of his story to the big screen. Joss elegantly transitioned his high-school-cheerleader-turned-vampire-slayer to the small screen by focusing on characterization, making a far funnier and more entertaining TV series than anyone thought possible. By the end of its third season, Buffy grew so popular that Joss Whedon created a rare spinoff series that actually played concurrently with the original series.
Today’s viewers are fortunate to have easy access to both TV shows in their entirety on Netflix Instant Watching and DVD, with the opportunity to watch all episodes of quality programming at their leisure.

Tick-Tock the Crocodile better known as just the Crocodile is a supporting character in Disney ‘s animated feature, Peter Pan. Contents [ show ] Background Tick-Tock was born several years before the events of Peter Pan, hatching on the shores of Neverland. He was adopted by a fairy named Rosetta , an early ally of Peter Pan’s pixie companion Tinker Bell , whom he mistook for his mother.
Not long after being born, the young crocodile found himself aboard the ship of a young pirate captain named James, who would one day become the feared Captain Hook. During his escapade aboard James’ ship, the crocodile accidentally swallowed the alarm clock of one of the crew members, thus gaining his iconic nickname. The ship adventure would also lead to Tick-Tock’s first encounter with Hook, believing the captain was a codfish, prompting him to snap and chase after him in the seas.
Years later, Tick-Tock would eventually grow to a monstrous size, considering he’s a crocodile, and his never-ending pursuit to have another taste of James continued. One day, however, James’ hand was cut off in battle by Peter Pan, and fed to Tick-Tock as a snack, thus fueling the croc’s hunger even further. Fortunately for James, now known as Captain Hook after the loss of his hand, the ticking alarm clock in Tick-Tock’s stomach gives a warning whenever the croc is near, allowing Hook to prepare himself for the danger moments away.
Physical Description The Crocodile is a green giant saltwater crocodile with sharp teeth, dark spikes on his back, long tail, yellow iris eyes, or sometimes colorful iris eyes, short legs, and makes a tick-tock sound with his tail or his eyes popping up with sound too.
