    No, I don't think that's possible. If they saw it, they should know it was not a hallucination (unless Willow and Xander were hallucinating too). I think there are only three options:

    1) Collin and Mike did see the scene (which was not a hallucination) but they pretended they didn't, to confuse Stasia (?)

    2) Collin and Mike didn't see the scene (which was not a hallucination) because producer James didn't let them see it, to confuse them all (?)

    3) Collin and Mike didn't see the scene because it was one of Buffy's hallucinations and they were not actually present for it.

    I'm pretty sure it's not 3), so it must be 1) or 2) (probably 1) but I still really don't see why that was necessary.

    I think Mike and Colin pretended they didn't see the scene to confuse Stasia in an attempt to make the episode seem more hallucinogenic and weird, and make her question her sanity in a similar way to Buffy. It was a pretty silly thing to do, but I appreciate they wanted to give Stasia the full affect of not knowing what was real and what wasn't.

    I gave up because of the Spike hate, I just couldn't stand how they either criticised him, or said nothing but praised everyone else in the scene

    But I do like Ian, and most of his guests are pretty interesting, the conversation had depth and often bought up things I'd not thought about. I was really annoyed when I had to stop listening
    Lani said Still Dead was on hiatus because they were reviewing Good Omens. Not sure why they haven't come back because Omens was only about 6 episodes. It's fantastic, BTW.

    I had to stop listening to Revisiting Sunnydale, which I had loved. The two blerds found out about JM writing the song dealing with young fans and MT, and they went crazy, accusing him of all sorts of things. They started saying that all the Scenes with Spike and Dawn were creepy. It just became the We Hate James Marsters podcast.

    After a few months they have decided to try to focus on the character, and not the actor but just listening to their voices made me kinda sick to my stomach.
    Can we agree that the writers made everyone do and say everything with a thought to getting good ratings and being renewed. This includes everything we love as well as everything we hate.

    Nothing worse than letting your feelings about an actor influence how you view the character they portray. I personally don't follow celebrities, mostly 'cause I don't care, and it helped me stay away from all the drama, plus I'd like to give celebrities the privacy I'd like for myself. It's a huge difference between discussing a character and discussing the choices made by a real life person.

    Yeah, but I also feel bad for Marsters. The only person who knew there was any connection was Whedon, who outed him. He just seems like a decent man.

    Listening to Once More With Commentary and they're up to Two To Go, and one of the girls on there says she's always believed Spike went to get the chip out. The other girl (Allie and Ginny, but don't know which is which) is a Spike fan, so she's surprised at her friends opinion. It really surprises me that so many people think Spike went to get his chip out, when Joss has said he went for his soul.

    I think for many fans it doesn't matter what Joss says about characters' motives - Joss had spoken in 1998 about why Xander lied to Buffy in Becoming II, but people will believe what they want depending on how they view a character and the events. Even though Spike does state on screen in S7 that he went to get a soul for Buffy, some fans choose not to believe him.

    In Season 7 Buffy says she was in love with Spike and people refuse to accept that too. People are dumb

    Sosa lola, I've started a new thread about Joss and what he's said about the show. Hope you'll comment about what he's said about Xander in Becoming

    Oh, I think she loved "The Gift" - she was incredibly emotionally affected by the whole string of episodes leading up to the S5 finale - "Spiral", "Weight of the World", "The Gift". She asked how Buffy as a show could even go on, now that Buffy was dead (really dead, not like her temporary brush with death in "Prophecy Girl" when she was resuscitated by Xander). I haven't watched "No Place Like Plrtz", but I'll be interested to see her reaction to "Heartthrob" which I've seen at some point.

    Lol normally I'd say its bit strange to not see a previous season finale before you see the next season premiere but no place is not good and in the case of the Gunn reconstruction speech downright insulting

    Will you watch it ?

    Joss has nothing to do with it for me. It just makes no sense whatsoever that he'd get the chip out. He can already hurt Buffy. That was the point all season.

    Oh I agree. The chip was scientific/medical, there was no need to go see a demon in Africa. The soul is spiritual/magical and needs a powerful spell to be restored.

    One of the girls argued that he could have gone to Willow, but of course Willow was off magics at the time, plus he's just attempted to rape her best friend, I doubt she'd do Spike any favours.
