Spike: open shirt, Spike

Buffy stuff

Watched "Seeing Red" and "Villains" today with Lisa. Boo. Depressing. I felt vindicated when Lisa spontaneously said that Spike seemed out of character in "Seeing Red," though over the years I have come to a certain understanding of what Marti Noxon (boo) was thinking. It was something like this: Men suck. No seriously, I think I understand where she was going with Spike ... I just don't agree with her analysis of the character.

I also really don't like how much they ham it up about Spike going off to Africa to get the chip out. He pretty much says in season 7 that he got his soul back on purpose, so why so much effort to make us think otherwise? It annoys me.

Lisa didn't seem as upset about Tara's death as I was the first time I saw it, so maybe she was spoiled. "Seeing Red" is my least favorite episode of the entire series. Attempted rape and dead Tara, both in one episode. Bah.
