BtVS – Season 7 – Chosen – Spike/Buffy
As the World Falls Down
The Turok-Han were massing out of the Hellmouth faster than they could be dispatched by the newly empowered Slayers. Buffy struggled to rise, telling the First to get out of her face. And Spike? Spike was doing a macabre imitation of a jack-o-lantern; intense light emanating from his very soul.
They’re drawn to each other in those final moments – Vampire and Slayer – as the Turok-Han dust and the cavern walls crumble. Words of love spoken and refuted, understood nevertheless.
Filled with regret for the man she’s forced to leave behind, Buffy climbs to the surface as the world falls down.
