As much as Robin resents Niki, from the way he was speaking to Buffy about her...it sounded like it isn't as strong as it once was. It was great to see her confide in him. Spike looked like he was about to cry when Buffy mentioned the abortion. I wonder if this will be a plot device used to bring them together finally?? The teasing has been increasing in my opinion as we've discussed before. I think I might have been too hard earlier...this season plot wise and character development has been great. It certainly is more low key, but that doesn't mean that stuff isn't happening! Dark Horse May solicitations. http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=36914 You know I was just thinking about Angel's plan to resurrect Giles...don't know why I didn't think about this earlier...this just seems like another one of his plans that is well intended but will end up having disastrous results. I can't imagine that Buffy will be pleased about this, given her own experience with her friends resurrecting her. Has Angel learned nothing? It will be interesting to see what actually happens.
