Fangirl Challenge: 15 TV casts → Buffy, the Vampire Slayer [1997–2003]
There, I did it right this time.
And I can fool Giles. And I can fool my friends. But I can’t fool myself.
Parallels between the last episode of Buffy and Angel.
I always felt like it was a beautiful way to show how their love changed them , and their destiny. It impacted their life forever even if they were apart. Angel was about to kill himself , thinking he was brave by giving up but Buffy teached him that strong means fighting and to never give up. She gave him a purpose , a goal , a meaning to his life. The show ends with Angel still fighting even when the world is against him. Angel sacrificied his love her , the only woman he ever loved for two centuries , the woman that made him feel human again because he wanted her to have a normal life , to shine and that’s how the show , after 7 seasons , ends. Angel gave her the necklace ( that also saved the world ), ending their meeting with the famous “I ain’t getting older” in response to Buffy’s thoughts that they may end up together , if she is done baking ;).
There’s a simple, obvious beauty to a love story between a vampire with a soul and a Slayer. The story served as a perfect metaphor for your first love, complete with the guy turning into a monster after the first time having sex (literally, in the case of Angelus). Whether Buffy had to kill him or whether she forced him to drink her, their love story was forever. Sorry Spike fans, but I still think that Buffy will one day become cookies and be with Angel. (x)
