When Spike tells Principal Wood that his soul is a work "in progress," he pronounces it as a Californian would, "Prah-gress," rather than as a Londoner would, "Proh-gress." See more »


Spike: And just what brings our good principal to this neck of the gloom?
Buffy Summers: I'm showing him our operation. Us.
Spike: Fine by me. Big fight against evil comin' up. The more good guys we've got, the longer we'll all live.
Principal Robin Wood: Is that what you are? A good guy?
Spike: I haven't heard any complaints. Well, I have heard a few complaints over the years, but then I just killed whoever spoke up, and that was pretty much that.
Buffy Summers: He's joking.
Principal Robin Wood: No, he's not.
Spike: No, I'm not.

OK, so what exactly do people have against this episode?

While I agree season 7 in general is weak compared to Buffy at its height (say season 3 through 6 maybe, but especially 3), I think episodes like Get It Done is an example where season 7 shines. My reason being that Buffy is always best when it's about character, not so much the Big Bad stuff. It's more about how characters "deal."

And how characters deal is what this episode is all about.

Of particular interest (and what doesn't seem get much notice in these reviews) is Spike having to face through Principal Wood the tragic outcome, face of grief and revenge, from survivor of one of vampire Spike's "greatest achievements." Something that Whedon must have been setting up ever since we first saw the flashback in the subway where we see how Spike got his leather coat.

On its own, this makes the tension of this episode worth it all by itself.
