I love Willow, and seeing how she would be as a vampire is hilarious. It is the complete opposite of how she really is. Although, it does kind of foreshadow what she’ll be like later. It’s nice seeing another side of a character, and what you expect from them. The whole episode was good, you see how Willow thinks she’s boring and predictable and she’s sick of it. But then she sees what she could turn into.
Willow: It’s horrible, that’s me as a vampire? I’m so evil and skanky. And I think I’m kinda gay. Buffy; Just remember, a vampire’s personality has nothing to do with the person it was. Angel: Well, actually……… That’s a good point
Spike is by far my favorite male character. “Fool For Love” you get to see how he’s developed through his years as a vampire. He went from being a very weak, joke of a poet, to this strong, fearless and feared guy.
Also, in “Lies My Parents Told Me” in both episodes, you see how he became the monster he was. From, killing his own mother, to getting his first taste of Slayer’s blood, and power. Then seeing how Drusilla leaving him and saying he was in love with Buffy, how that caused him to go through a “downfall” and transition further. They were both very nicely written episodes.
Day 19: Character You Like That Everyone Else Hates
I will probably receive death threats for this…
I thought he was a fantastic villain. Warren, Jonathan, and Andrew were dorks and complete idiots, but they posed a major threat to Buffy. They were human, and she didn’t want to kill humans. As sick as Warren was in the brain, he was a genius. I didn’t care that he killed Tara, I didn’t care much for her. It sucks how she died, but the way he was killed was disgusting. I liked his character, I like how he was introduced, and the way they kept bringing him back as “The First”
Day 18: Character Who Didn’t Get Enough Screen Time
Drusilla aka “Dru”
She was crazy. I would’ve liked to see her more often, coming into Sunnydale and fuckin’ shit up. Her chemistry with Spike was so great. Her voice was hypnotizing, and the way she spoke; I could listen to her talk for days.
“This is a decision I have to come to myself. I can’t just ride this out and accept the default answer. Predictable doesn’t always mean boring. Lust doesn’t always mean love. Near doesn’t always mean close. New doesn’t always mean exciting. Different doesn’t always mean better. Far doesn’t always mean distant. Knowing everything doesn’t make you wise. Knowing the truth doesn’t make you superior. Knowing your problem doesn’t solve it. Sitting between your past and your future doesn’t mean you’re in the present.”—Dakota Skye (via thecasualglance)
