While patrolling the cemetery, the self-confident Buffy fights against a vampire, is stabbed with her stake and saved by Riley. She tells the incident to Giles and decides to research how the previous Slayers were killed. She does not find any information in the watcher's journals and decides to seek the information from Spike. He tells that in 1880, in London, he was a bad poet and a shy good man in a non-corresponded love with Cecily. When he meets Drusilla, she bites and converts him in the evil vampire. Later, in the same year in Yorkshire, he meets Angel and Darla and is challenged to defeat a slayer. In 1900, in China, he is well-succeeded and kills his first slayer. In 1977, in the subway of New York City, he kills his second slayer. He advises Buffy that she must never be reckless and keep her death wish to survive. Written by

Spike, in 1880, is shown as being left-handed whilst writing. Right up part way through the 20th century left-handedness was largely forcefully suppressed during schooling, including corporal punishment to literally "beat" it out of the child. Spike, as an upper-class, educated, youth would not have been allowed to be left-handed. See more
Come on. I can feel it, Slayer. You know you wanna dance.
Say it's true. Say I do want to. It wouldn't be you, Spike. It would never be you. You're beneath me.
