"Spike all the way. Spike and Dru were just incredible additions to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The second season sizzled with their chemistry. Every time I rewatch that show I remember why I loved Spike so much because he's so electric as a villain. It's dirty, punk rock, and a little charming. I will go to my grave preferring him as a villain; he was so great in Season 2."
"Spike and Buffy dating was not great. It wasn't the worst decision the writers made, but it wasn't great. I just really hate lovesick Spike. He was kind of a loser and he'd lost his edge by the point. Again, so different from Season 2 where he's such a badass. Every time I watch Season 2, it's like I'm watching it for the first time...It's so good."
