Regarding Angel 5.9 Only

The episode was better than I thought in a 'filler' kind of way. The opening ad for Wolfram & Hart made me giggle. Mercedes did a lovely job of having a lousy day. Actually felt very sorry for her at the end of the day. Little teensy bit of Spike!Snark (tm) is always of the good.

My only quibble with the whole episode is, of course... the lame ass lines from Spike regarding his NOT going after Buffy. This is in NO WAY the Spike we all knew and loved. He was never a coward. There is no way in hell that Buffy would not have been happy to see him. Even if just as a friend (refusing to hear the 'You'll never be friends' speech that just wants to beat me around the head)... as we all know we can never have enough friends in the world. I hate, hate, hate the way they did this. I've known it was coming for weeks, and I still can't wrap my mind around how the writers expect this to be believable. /rant

Sooo looking forward to episode 5.10

I dunno, Spike's excuse seemed mostly plausible to me--wordy (like most of the ep) but realistic. For once he wants her to have the rosy memory of him, to see him as the knight in shining armour. He goes to her, she sees him alive ::poof:: the great sacrifce means nothing.

Too, can't really have a romance with someone who won't do the show. ::shrug::

Yeah, it was irritating the way they dealt w/ the whole spike/buffy issue... They basically crapped on his definition of love. Because if he meant all that he's ever said about the way he feels for Buffy, then he wouldn't have cared about appearances. Hell, he wouldn't have even cared about her reaction, or lack thereof. He'd be trying to get to her as fast as he could.
