The Rewatcher: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Jan 9 2023 • 1 hr 11 mins

It’s finally happening. The moment Alaina and the entire Buffy the Vampire Slayer-loving universe has been waiting for: SPIKE. IS. HERE. That’s right — The bleached-blonde British baddie has sauntered into Sunnydale, and he’s not alone. He’s joined by Drusilla, who may currently seem feeble and harmless, but is as creepy as they come. This week, Buffy tries to survive her initial encounter with this dynamic duo, while Spike annihilates The Anointed One and fully cements himself as the new BIG BAD on the block.

Who is this vicious vamp who’s weakened Alaina’s knees since the 90s? What’s his history with Angel? And if he’s already killed two slayers, how can Buffy escape being his third? Get ready to sink your teeth into our most swoon-worthy episode yet, because now that Spike’s on the scene, Buffy, and this entire series, will never be the same again.
