This is a fascinating comparison of Angel & Spike and analysis of the not rape scene. Buffy - Rant about Spike vs Angel by ~airagorncharda on deviantART . In a nutshell - this is what I have been saying forever (although nowhere near as coherently as this person) I agree 1000%. Spike is a better man when soulless than Angel was when he was simply human Liam (he was a drunken womaniser even then)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Unaired Pilot 1996 - Amazing to watch. Totally different Willow (good cast choice with Alyson Hannigan!). Lots of lines/moments I wish had been in Welcome to the Hellmouth. Fun to watch.
