Crush (spoilers)

PictureWriting for Spike in Love

Crush was another episode that I’d asked to do. Specifically, I’d asked to do an episode that takes the Buffy/Spike relationship to the next step.

At this point, we knew that Spike was feeling he was in love with Buffy - and we had talked about some later episodes - but I thought it was time in this particular episode to explore that a little bit more.

We wound up tipping our hand a little bit. I’d said "This should be the episode where people find out about Spike being in love," and it then progressed into Buffy finding out, which was something we were saving for later. It turned out to be a good play because we were able to take them to interesting places throughout the rest of the season.

It was great because we got to bring Drusilla back. Spike and Dru back together again, I think, was really significant in terms of what love means to Spike. Also, having Harmony in there as well... the subtitle of that episode was Spike’s Women. This was all the women in Spike’s life and how they were just making his life hell.
