The One Where Spike Returns To His Past, Sort Of...
3 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. I love seeing Spike's early vampire life and how he was influenced by the people around him.

In this episode, Giles believes he can deactivate Spike's trigger, the one being used by The First. To make the trigger, a song, useless and ineffective, Spike must think back to his past and get over the experience that makes the song an emotional trigger for him. Robin then takes Spike to his place where he plays the song, because he wants to kill Spike for killing his Slayer mother thirty years earlier. But, Spike wins and leaves him alive, since he felt like he owed him that.

Best part of the episode: When Spike travels back to his past.

Worst part of the episode: When Spike leaves Robin alive.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
