You know, kidding aside, Spike … you really should get a girlfriend.
"Stairs, huh?" - Angel, Season 5, Episode 8 “Destiny”
I feel like it’s unfair that Angel can get out of anything because “he’s Angelus, he doesn’t have a soul” but everyone looks at Spike with/without a soul the same way. Spike actually had to choose to get a soul, where Angel was just cursed with one. And Spike without a soul tried to rape Buffy, but Angelus was the one that tried to kill her. But we don’t see Angel being held accountable the way Spike was.
Not only did Angel/Angelus try to kill her…he targeted her friends and family, tortured Giles for hours, plotted an apocalypse, killed Willow’s fish and of course, Jenny Calendar. Yet he is always welcomed back into the Scooby bosom. It infuriates me.
(Oh, and spoilers for anyone who hasn’t read the comics yet….)
He killed Giles the same way he killed Jenny.
