    Saw this on Etsy and thought it was very timely, what with American politics the way it is at the moment.

    I debated with myself for all of 20 seconds and have ordered the new Boom Buffy from Amazon. Got everything crossed that it's going to be good

    I wasn't quite that excited. My line of thought was more "Up Yours Amazon".

    I've just set up a scheduled email. It's the only useful thing I learned from S12.

    Damn you! Mine arrived yesterday but was "too big to come through the letterbox" ( shades of a Carry On film...nudge, nudge, wink, wink). I have to go to the PO for it (not a euphemism).

    Since several reactors have hit "Innocence" in the last few weeks, I have seen one of my favorite Xander moments ever repeatedly -- when he gets the 'spidey sense' about Angel and turns back to where he left Willow. But watching it so many times, and Buffy's arrival, something occurred to me that I never thought of before. It's not that big of a hallway, Buffy can see what's happening behind Angel, she can see that Xander is coming up on him. It just gives me a smile to realize while she is staring down Angel she is also basically backing Xander's move here, trusting him with Willow's safety -- in later seasons, Buffy would have absolutely been written to stop focusing on Angel and warn Xander 'no, stay back', etc.

    I was watching earlier seasons, and noticed these repeats:

    Xander in S1 (The Witch): "Will...I get it. You don't have to drive it through my head like a railroad spike," which foreshadows Spike's backstory.

    The Master in S1 (NKaBotFD): "Here endeth the lesson" which Spike echoes in Fool for Love & Buffy echoes in Showtime.

    Angel in S3 (The Prom) describes his relationship with Buffy as: "this freak show" - and Buffy tells Spike in Wrecked: "last night was the end of this freak show."

    - - - Updated - - -

    Not sure if there's a tie-in or it's all coincidence, but I thought it was interesting.

    Xander being the first to say Spike's name is all the proof you need that Spander is the true endgame.

    I've definitely seen this being remarked on before, or have done myself, not sure. I can't remember if it was in the rewatch or elsewhere (or both). I think it's a link which can be seen to show both Buffy's disquiet at what she has done/the relationship that she doesn't think is good or viable and how much it hurt her when Angel said that. She is intentionally looking to hit back at Spike and trying to gain distance by hurting him/verbally pushing him away.

    I think saying 'here endeth the lesson' is a common phrase used to indicate the person speaking is coming from a position of knowledge/authority, the tone being that of an old fashioned sermon when taking a passage from the bible.
