Depending on the day, my favorite Buffy episode tends to change. Well, I can’t help it. I love them all! But whenever I’m asked I DO have a special scene the I love.
Sunnydale is about to be overrun by The First and all it’s demons from hell. There’s evil priest named Caleb (played by the fantastic Nathan Fillion) who wants Buffy d-e-a-d, dead. Spike has a soul and finally figures out his role in the whole end of the world thing. The slayer wanna-be’s stage a coup, leaving Buffy on her own and Faith suddenly in charge. Xander walks around like a pirate, because poor thing has to wear an eye patch. And then there’s Willow. She and Kennedy take the time for one last/first romantic romp.
With all that said, my favorite scene is a simple one. Buffy and Spike both let their guard down, leaving themselves vulnerable to the other. And it helps that Spike says some beautiful words to her. I mean, if a guy like Spike says, “I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman. You’re the one…” Wouldn’t YOU melt? It isn’t until Buffy asks Spike to hold her in bed that we know how she feels. Not to mention the song playing during this scene is beautiful.
Anyone want to share their favorite Buffy scene?
Next week I’ll be posting about The Trio: Andrew, Jonathan, and Warren.
