I'm destiny-free, really.

Mostly Filler, Installment 33
2:21 Becoming, Part 1
lots of back story
about Buffy's slayerness
and Drusilla's past
Funniest Moment:
I want to be like you. But I don't wanna dress like you.
Favorite Character: Drusilla
I love that we get to see back story on this character. She's gorgeous as always. The confession scene is so well done by her. Her relationships with Angelus and Spike are interesting and add a lot of depth to the vampire scene on this show.
Best Dressed: Buffy
Outfit perfection. I love this. It's organic and flowy and looks really comfy without being frumpy.

Worst Dressed: Willow

And speaking of frumpy...

  • The confession scene with Dru and Angelus (after he kills the actual priest) fascinates me. Drusilla's overwhelming need to be "good" and the eventual reply of "Very well, ten Our Fathers" seem all too realistic and creepy to me. People's concept of goodness and the idea that it can be restored by performing some sort of unrelated penance is disturbing to me.
  • I really love the Buffy/Angel theme music. We just got the newest CD of Buffy music, which is music from seasons 2, 3, 4 and 5 by Christophe Beck.
  • If Spike was so keen on saving the world, why didn't he stop Angelus the first time he tried to remove the sword? Did he know it wouldn't work? Hmmm.
  • I love seeing the back story of Buffy being called and Whistler bringing Angel to see her.
  • Immolationogram is a pretty fabulous word. But Angelus was right - Buffy does fall for it every single time. What is up with that?
  • I like Whistler's narration of this episode.

Becoming, Part 1 Drabble
Spike had known for a while that his strength was returning. Still, there were days when he would have preferred to be a pile of ashes in that old church. The return of Angelus hadn’t exactly turned out to be the undead party they might have expected. Drusilla was taken in by him – it wasn’t her fault. She was crazy and all. But now that his legs were working again, the old feisty Spike was coming back with them. It was all about attitude, right?

Now, he was going to have to do something about this ending the world deal.
