Re: BUFFY and ANGEL
I really don't know. Now that you mention it, maybe she's not dead at all. I'm concerned about having three slayers running around if she comes back(Faith came because of another time that Buffy "died"). but maybe she's not dead this time. I am almost positive that she will continue to be the slayer next season.

I contend that whatever she went to her house with Spike for will be what brings her back next season.
Yeah, what's up with him. It's always been, "if you're a vampire with no soul you're evil and that's all there is too it" in the Buffiverse. So Spike is really a quandry. Was that rule trumped by the "If you're an interesting character and the fans like you we'll do anything to keep you around" rule?
The question of Spike's soul is also answered by the old demon, who says he doesn't smell one on the vampire...so unlike Angel
he hasn't been given one; the only thing between him and immorality is a thin sliver of silicone in his brain. Still, for a soulless man, he seems the most self-sacrificing and weeps the most over Buffy's dead body.
Now why does that sound familiar? Can't put my finger on it, but I've heard that somewhere.
That's how I hoped it would be spelled, in honor of Groo the wander!
Angel, even at his worst, refrains from killing Groo,
