Early history[ edit ] Spike’s story before he appears in Sunnydale unfolds in flashbacks scattered, out of sequence, among numerous episodes of both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. The first flashback occurs in Buffy Season Five’s ” Fool for Love “, and reveals William as in fact a meek, effete young man and an aspiring poet who lived in London with his mother, Anne. This surname became official with the publication of the canon comic Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11 7, in which Buffy calls him by it. The name William Pratt may allude to horror actor Boris Karloff , whose birth name was William Henry Pratt, and can also be understood as the British slang term “prat”, describing a person of arrogant stupidity. Spike is one of the youngest recurring vampires on the show, though the evidence of his age is contradictory, as the concept of the character evolved over time. When he was introduced in ” School Hard ” season 2 , Giles read that he was “barely two hundred,” implying that he was either born or sired in or slightly earlier. In ” The Initiative ” season 4 he said he was , thus born or sired in

Buffy Summers[ change change source ] Buffy Anne Summers played by Sarah Michelle Gellar is “the Slayer,” one in a long line of young women chosen to fight evil. She is blonde and beautiful and she is a normal cheerleading girl at the start of the movie. Being the Slayer gave her increased strength, endurance, agility and healing.

However, I think the problems I had with this season differed from those of many other fans, judging from the internet criticisms, because, once I felt the season had turned the corner and was getting good again, a lot of fans were still unhappy and writing the season off as a total loss.
Many disliked the darkness, but I like darkness – the darker the better, so long as there’s eventually a light beyond the darkness.
