Since the Victor Halperin hasshot and released the first ever zombie film, its been 85 years already! It was then that the audience first saw on the screen a living dead undead. The movie was so impressive that these horror stories were the main backbone of the horror genre.

During the first thirty years, the image of zombie characters was somewhat different than now. As a rule, these were the dead people resurrected by Voodoo sorcerers, obeying their orders, or living people who lost control over themselves under the influence of witchcraft or alien mind.

Thanks to director George Romero, who in 1968 made a real revolution in the genre, new zombies appeared on the screen infectious, deadly and very dangerous creatures. If they bit a man, then he certainly turned into one of them. In the 1970-80 genre literally blossomed. The image of the zombie was supplemented with viruses, radiation, toxins and became the way we are used to seeing it now.

Caroline Forbes | The Vampire Diaries Wiki | FANDOM …

In The Return, at the hospital, Sheriff Forbes, Matt, Bonnie and Damon await to hear how Caroline’s condition was. It turned out it was grave and Damon suggested that he used his blood to ensure her recovery. Elena was totally against this but Bonnie told him to do it. He does and Caroline got better quickly, almost miraculously to the uninitiated and was happy when Bonnie and Matt happily comforted her.

Later in the night however, Katherine entered her hospital room. Caroline mistook her for Elena, but Katherine corrected her. She asked Caroline to give a message (Game On) to the Salvatore Brothers. She picked up Caroline’s pillow and smothered her to death.

In Brave New World, at the hospital early next morning, she awakened in transition. Disoriented, she got out of bed because of the smell of blood. She drank from the bag at first repulsed, but then with relish. As the morning progressed, she noticed that sunlight burned her.

When Matt arrived that morning cheerful over her recovery, she behaves aggressively at the time by the sunlight. Caroline endured more effects of the transformation, and her cries of pain attracted the nurse again. This time using her super-strength and speed she pinned her and used her compulsion ability and nurse was under her power when Caroline apologized to her saying she was sorry and was hungry before feeding from her. Later as she packed to leave the hospital to go to the Mystic Falls High School Carnival. She also told the nurse to forget that she bit her.

Caroline’s teeth sprout

At the carnival and inside the high school, she found Damon and delivered him Katherine’s message, letting him know that she was a vampire by telling him that she was remembering all of the times he made her forget things. She hooked up with her boyfriend at ring toss attraction. Not knowing her strength she broke a few bottles with the ring. She then embraced him but then suddenly detected his throbbing blood-filled vein and had the extremely strong sense to feed. She pushed him away and left leaving him confused. In tears, she came across Carter in a remote part of the carnival grounds, he was bleeding from the nose from the fight with Tyler and his uncle.

She saw the blood and became even more upset, she fought it the best she could but then said, “I’m so sorry!” and gave in to the blood lust and attacked him, draining him of blood. Damon, searching for her, found her sobbing next to the body. She informed him that she killed him, and she asked Damon to help her. Damon said that he would by killing her with the stake he had. She protested that she doesn’t want to die, to which Damon said she is already dead. Caroline said she wasn’t and begged him to help her.

Damon embraced her but raised the stake to stake her through the heart . Stefan arrived just in time, with Elena by his side. Caroline mistook Elena for Katherine at first but she explained, although Caroline still didn’t understand why she looked like her and why Katherine did this to her. As Stefan tried to get Caroline inside, Damon tried to kill her again. This time Elena interposed herself between Caroline and Damon’s raised stake, protesting that she was her friend. Damon backed down but told her that everything that Caroline did from then on was on Elena.

Damon turned to leave, but then Bonnie arrived. She sees Caroline’s bloody face and went into denial. She touched Caroline’s arm and she then knew the truth. She saw the dead form of Carter who she met as a potential boyfriend earlier. Elena tried to comfort Bonnie, Stefan got Caroline inside and to a restroom and cleaned the blood off Caroline’s face. She worried that Bonnie hated her, that she was a monster and worried about Matt’s reaction. Stefan told her that her emotions were heightened as a part of the transition. Stefan taught her to breath deep repeatedly and she managed to get her face back to normal. He told her that he was proud of her, and she asked why Katherine turned her. Stefan shook his head and replies, “I don’t know. I wish I did.” He promised that he won’t let anything happen to her and embraced her.

In Bad Moon Rising, after a few days trapped in her house during the daylight hours, Stefan and Bonnie came to her house with a ring similar to the ones the Salvatore Brothers wear so she could go out by day. However Bonnie told her that the conditions of her having that ring, including the ability to remove the spell on it allowing her to walk in the day if she hurt anyone. Caroline protested that she wouldn’t and Bonnie told her that the urge to kill is in her “…you want to be friends you’ll have to prove that the Caroline I remember isn’t gone”.

Bonnie casting the spell

Bonnie cast the spell on the ring, but Caroline indicated that she was expecting incantations and the other attributes of spell casting. Stefan chided her but Caroline protested that she wanted to make sure that the spell worked. With that Bonnie pulled back the curtains to let in all the sunlight including rays that struck Caroline. Caroline yelped and screeched but the sunlight didn’t harm her at all. “It worked” Bonnie said with a bit of mocking.

Later in the woods Stefan was training Caroline to hunt woodland animals like rabbits. Caroline half jokingly wondered if killing defenseless animals a step in becoming a serial killer. Stefan with gallows humor explained that becoming a vampire skips over being a serial killer. Caroline then vented her frustration over being in the house for days not being able to be with Matt after he told her he loved her and he is at the swimming hole having fun with the others.

Stefan laughed at Caroline’s typical manic behavior with her resenting him thinking it was funny. Stefan said it was not funny and seriously explained that when one became a vampire the person they were as a human is magnified greatly after they are transformed into a vampire. Stefan was very caring towards people so that got magnified greatly, as an explanation that despite his vampire nature he cared enough for people not to hurt them. Caroline’s manic behavior is thus magnified. “So you’re saying..that now…I’m basically an insecure, neurotic, control freak on crack?” Stefan stifled a smile and said “I wouldn’t put it that way…but…”. He then said they will finish the hunt and then go to the swimming hole so she could be with Matt since being with him will help her hang on to her humanity.

Caroline finds Aimee flirting with Matt

“Shut up”

Caroline kisses Matt

Matt finds a secluded spot to his liking and started kissing Caroline. He is momentarily distracted by a snapping twig but Caroline’s passions are growing and she starts kissing him. Her passions still building she pushes him against a tree (using normal strength) and kisses him intensely. Then Matt cuts his left wrist on the tree bark.

Caroline licks the wound

Caroline is mesmerized by the blood. It was essentially a replay of when Jeremy cut his wrist on purpose in front of Anna to make her reveal she was a vampire. Caroline goes through the same things she sniffs the blood and then to Matt’s confusion starts to lick the wound. Then she sinks her fangs in and starts to drink from it. Totally weirded out Matt frees his wrist and then sees her face. She has her “game face” on with black eyes and baring fangs.

Caroline bites Matt

Stefan stops Caroline from hurting Matt anymore

A scared Caroline with a werewolf on top of her

Caroline stops to demand what it is, Stefan tells her it is a werewolf. Tyler Lockwood shows up ostensibly wondering what they are doing there. Then the werewolf attacks Caroline and knocks her on her back, snarling in her face. She can just barely hold it off despite her super strength. Stefan rushes in and knock it of Caroline. Stefan rolls back on his feet and faces the snarling beast who snarls back at him. Tyler shouts at the werewolf. The beast regards him snarling then backs off and runs away at super speed leaving the three bewildered.

Caroline compels Matt

Later back with Matt, Caroline compels him to forget what she did to him and believe it was an animal that attacked him while they were making out in the woods and bit his neck. “Weird, it just came out of nowhere” he says his line in his hypnotic state. As she leaves Matt in a daydream state, she ask about Tyler, Stefan says he took care of it. He tells her he will put Matt on vervain which will keep her from drinking his blood and compelling him further. She says she can’t believe she hurt the one person she never ever wanted to hurt. Stefan tells her it is not going to get any easier, that she has to work on it that much harder. She says that she shouldn’t be with him. He tells her that it is her decision that if he followed his own advice he would have walked away from Elena a long time ago, he should’ve but now he can’t.

Matt and Aimee in the Grill

Caroline and Matt break up

Caroline wakes up to find Katherine’s there

The next morning Caroline is in her bed sleeping. She awakens to find a woman beside her bed, again, and recoils. “Elena?” she asks. “Nope.” “Try again.”. “Katherine.” Caroline concludes correctly and recoils further against the headboard of her bed as Katherine sits on it. “Don’t be frightened.” “We’re gonna to have so much fun together.” She says deviously.

Caroline tries to distract Elena

Caroline’s car, used to keep Elena away from Stefan

In Memory Lane, when Damon convinces Alaric Saltzman to convince Jenna to host a private mini reunion barbecue party with a couple of her old high school friends supposedly so that Alaric can meet some of her old friends including Mason Lockwood (in which Damon’s ulterior motive was to drop hints to Mason that he knew what he was), Caroline was also there at the house and walks to Elena (who had invited her and Damon) outside as she was making a call to Stefan after he continuously doesn’t answer (he was busy interrogating Kathrine in the dungeon-or so he thought) .

“God! I cannot stop eating”

Caroline tries to distract Elena from the fact that her boyfriend won’t answer by dropping hints that a vampire/human relationship wouldn’t work including telling her that Stefan supposedly said to Caroline that despite how he felt about Elena every second he she was a temptation. He fought the desire for blood every second every day even when she was with him. “The desire to rip out your jugular every time he is with you? Trust me, its there. That’s why I had to break up with Matt” Caroline said to Elena. Elena contemplated what Caroline said as Alaric came to them to tell them dinner was ready.

Caroline guesses in Pictionary “Puppy! Puppy with a tutu!”

Caroline sabotages the car Wheel’s

Caroline and Elena in the car

After Elena changed the subject by turning up the car’s mp3 player (“We Radiate” by Goldfrapp) Caroline’s sabotaged tire blows out and they have to stop the car. It’s soon night time and Caroline has made a call to the towing company for them to come and get the car, but it is taking exceedingly long and an antsy Elena wants to call Jenna, presumably to pick them up. Caroline stalls further by saying she will call the tow company again and use her “agro voice”.

The car breaks down

Elena offers to walk the rest of the way but Caroline says they can’t leave her car. Elena says they will come back for it but Caroline belays her again “What part of ‘I’m worried about Stefan’ didn’t sink in?” frustratingly protests. “What’s the rush? Why are you hurrying to get back to a relationship that would never work?” Caroline says annoyed.

The speech

Elena concedes that Caroline is still upset over Matt but not to project it on her Stefan. Caroline denies she is projecting saying.

Caroline begs Elena to stay with her

Elena, stunned ask were her out burst came from. Caroline says she is trying to be her friend but Elena is unappreciative and tells her to stop trying. The tow truck finally approaches and Elena says she is going to walk, but then Caroline grabs her by the arm pleading not to go, but too tightly causing Elena to say she is hurting her. Caroline practically begging says don’t leave her alone. “What is wrong with you?” Elena asks Caroline. The truck stops besides them and the driver inquires if they are the ones who called in the flat tire. “She did” Elena says to Caroline and walks off.

Katherine corners Caroline in the Mystic Grill toilets

Later at the Mystic Grill Caroline is in the Grill’s lavatory at the sink freshening up in the mirror. Then she hears footsteps and Katherine appears in the reflection. Caroline turns around with trepidation. Katherine is angry because Caroline didn’t do exactly what she said and occupy Elena and keep her from returning home and contacting Stefan (Elena came home just as Katherine “escaped” from Stefan and menace Elena).

Katherine threatens Caroline

Caroline told her that she did all she could to convince Elena that her relationship with Stefan was doomed. As Katherine menacingly stepped forward Caroline said she thought she got to her. “I hope so, because let’s not forget. I’ve already killed you once, I can easily do it again.” Katherine said with undisguised contempt.

Caroline apologizes to Elena

Soon after she had a frightening face to face confrontation with Katherine, Elena walks into the Mystic Grill with Stefan. Caroline is there and calls Elena over and she apologizes to Elena about how she acted and what she said. But Elena admits that what Caroline was saying earlier was right but it was hard for her to admit it. Caroline is surprised that Elena is not mad and Elena tells her she was just being a good friend. Caroline apologizes again. Elena wordlessly accepts it and goes over to where Stefan was sitting.

Elena and Stefan ‘break up’ which leads to Caroline listening to them

There they discuss what Kathrine said to Stefan about the two of them breaking up. Elena is incredulous at the suggestion that they should do what Katherine wants in order to keep Elena safe. He tells her she is sadistic and used to getting her way. Elena doesn’t like it that he is letting Katherine have so much power over their relationship. Meanwhile Caroline is hearing every word.Elena tells Stefan that Katherine wants them to fight and get between them.

Caroline listens to Stefan and Elena break up

“She already has” Stefan tells Elena. With apparent realization that that was it; after a moments pause as she absorbed the importance of the moment, she gets up and leaves the Grill. Caroline heard the break up but isn’t at all pleased. Damon is also at the Grill and he also heard everything. He has an ever so slight Mona Lisa smile hearing them break up.

Damon also listens to Elena and Stefan break up

When Stefan and Elena are alone again at Elena’s house it is revealed that the breakup was all a ruse put on knowing that Caroline would hear and report back to Katherine. They decide not to tell Damon, who also overheard the false break up to better convince Katherine of its legitimacy.

Caroline leaves her Mom in the hall way

Speaking of Elena she tells her mother that she and Stefan are going through a rough patch. Her mother ask if everything is going okay with her (meaning Caroline). Caroline says she is fine but Elizabeth notes that she seemed different some how. Caroline protest that she is fine but Elizabeth comes back saying that while Caroline thinks that her mother doesn’t notice things like that, she does. She ask trying to comfort what is wrong. Defensive, Caroline says “You know, there’s pretending to be mother and then there’s reality. Let’s not push our luck okay?” and she leaves her chagrined mother.

Caroline and Elena painting

At the function Caroline described to Elena that Elizabeth is all of a sudden “mother of the year” when she was trying to avoid her the most. Then as they begin to paint on what looked like wood stain and/or preservative on a park ground building pillar and a wood water pump. Caroline noted Elena’s apparent boredom and says she is just babbling; but Elena encourages her to go on and she does, Caroline saying she was bitchy to her mother which was “…par for the course with us”. “Us” meaning vampires.

Elena seemed preoccupied despite what she said so Caroline asked how things were with her and Stefan and if she heard from him “No, not since the fight” Elena lied referring to the “break up” at the Mystic Grill. She tells Caroline that he has been pushing her away from him because a jealous Katherine might hurt her and she doesn’t know how to change her mind. Caroline puts down her brush and goes over to say to her that perhaps that Stefan has a point because Katherine is dangerous. Continuing the lie as her best friend looks at her intently Elena says that she knows that Katherine is dangerous and that Stefan is trying to protect her, but it felt like giving up, that they were stronger than that. To that Caroline just shrugs regretfully.

Caroline looks at Stefan and Elena sharing glances

A few minutes later, still applying wood stain to the facilities Caroline notes the longing looks between Elena and Stefan and comments on it to Elena. Elena puts down her brush and says she is going to go talk to him. Caroline tries to talk her out of it but Elena blows past her heading for Stefan frustrating her. As Elena heads for her alleged ex-boyfriend Damon comes up behind Caroline asking what is Elena’s problem. “Don’t worry about it” Caroline says. He then asks why she was being such a bitch to her mother. “Don’t worry about it” she repeats and walks off to finish re-staining the column but tuning her ears to listen in on Stefan and Elena.

Damon talks to Caroline

The two go into their act. With her asking if he still cares about Katherine and Stefan saying don’t turn it into something it is not. Damon starts to listen in on the conversation as well. She ask if it is not up for discussion. Stefan then says he is not saying that only that there are ears on them and looks in the direction of both Caroline and Damon who both badly pretend to be minding their own businesses. The keep going through the act with Elena perhaps not acting, bewildered as to why she and Katherine look so much alike. “How can you hate her and be in love with me?” she ask perhaps seriously. He tells her that she is reaching and he is not Damon. She tells him not to bring Damon into it. Stefan says he can’t do this anymore.

Caroline listens to Elena and Stefan

“Fine, Stefan, whatever” Elena says and walks off. Forty feet away and having heard everything Damon says to a displeased Caroline “Relationships are about communication”. Caroline gives Damon a dirty look and she takes off after her friend.

Caroline finds Elena

Minutes later Caroline catches up to her as she sits next to a small waterfall plucking leaves off a plant . Sitting down besides her she ask if she is okay. “Nope. Maybe it is for the best” Caroline says. Angry appearing Elena snaps at her saying none of this is for the best. She then immediately apologies and didn’t mean to take it out on her saying to Caroline that she was only being a good friend. Caroline slightly shakes her head at that knowing that she wasn’t being a good friend to Elena. “No I’m not. I’m not being a good friend at all” Elena looks surprised at the near confession.

However Caroline sees her mother on a cell phone leaving the park grounds. “Wheres my mom going?” she ask rhetorically to Elena and gets up. Perhaps using a bit of super-speed Caroline catches up to Elizabeth, asking her what is wrong. She says nothing as she hangs up and closes the cellphone. Elizabeth says it is work, meaning police business. Caroline going back to bitchy mode and folded arms says “It always is”. “I’m sorry” Elizabeth says seeming to be near tears for disappointing her daughter for the countless time and turns and walks away. By this time Elena has caught up and ask what is going on. “I don’t know” Caroline says as she looks at her mother’s retreating form, that somethings up.

Caroline hears gunshots

Minutes later they are both climbing up to higher ground so Caroline can hear her surroundings better. “Hear what?” Elena ask but Caroline doesn’t respond but concentrates. Elena tries to speak again but get shushed. Caroline picks up the various park sounds:, a lawn mower, a workman hammering nails, girls playing high speed patty cake. Then Caroline hears Damon and Stefan and then rapid gunshots. “Oh God” Caroline says “What?” says a befuddled Elena who hadn’t heard a thing.

Caroline finds blood

Caroline says it was Stefan and Damon and she takes off running but at human speed so Elena can keep up. A few minutes later Caroline stops short and Elena blows past her asking what is it? “They’ve been here” she response and stoops down to examine the forest floor. Caroline finds blood on a leaf of a bush. They both have fear filed looks on their faces but just then Mason Lockwood comes up behind them wondering what they were doing there.

Mason chokes Elena

Ignoring the question Elena ask where is Stefan, Mason, with a hard face, says he did see him or Damon and walks closer to the two. Elena ask where are they. “You don’t need me for that. I’ll let your friend sniff them out” he says sardonically to Caroline. Caroline looks at Mason with a hard face as well. “Does your mother know what you are?!? Mason ask hostilely. Caroline is taken aback that he knows. “I’m happy to tell her” he says. She makes a move about to go into super-speed to attack him, but Mason grabs Elena and puts her in a figure 4 rear naked choke hold.

Caroline stops in her tracks as Mason threatens to snap Elena’s neck. Sounding a little like she was reassuring herself as well as warning Mason she says “I can take you” “Wanna bet?” he says. Now sounding totally defiant she says “Yeah I do!” and burst into speed. She tears Elena out of his arms, grabs his football player physique by his purple V neck Tee shirt and push him up against a tree probably 20 feet away and grab his neck with her right hand, with him letting out a yelp as he slams against the bark; all in less than three seconds.

Caroline chokes Mason

Caroline kicks Mason

“Told yah!” she says triumphantly, her incredible might easily overpowering his werewolf enhanced strength. Then she knees him in the groin and simultaneously flings him down onto the ground. Then while he was down on his hands and knees she kicks him in the stomach lifting him up and sending him flying another 20 feet with his right side hitting another tree, much like a punted football. He was still going up when she hit it. He landed with yelp on his stomach still conscious. Elena is astonished. Caroline is elated. She tells Elena to come on and they both run off at a human speed jog with Mason seeing them go.

Eventually they come across the cellar of the old slave quarters on the old Lockwood plantation. Caroline listens and hears her own mother say “He’s not going to tell us anything. Kill them both!” Elena ask what is going on. Caroline tells her Elizabeth is killing them. Elena says “What?” but Caroline restrains her. Caroline is afraid to stop it because her mother will find out about her. Elena, disgusted, ignores her and runs down the stairway leaving a torn Caroline, but just temporarily. She eventually runs down the stairs after Elena who had just hit a sheriff deputy with a old plank trying to stop the killing. The deputy who was hit holds her at gun point, but Caroline, using her super-speed, slams shut a cellar door. Elizabeth ask Elena who else is with her. Around them Caroline uses her super-speed, frightening the cop holding Elena.

Caroline kills the first deputy

Caroline step out of the shadows

Caroline runs behind Elena comes around and defects the gun spinning the terrified cop around, holds him with her powerful arms and starts to rip out his jugular vein with her fangs; her snarling mixing with his cries in terror and pain as she drinks his blood. Then the report from the other deputy tells Caroline she is being fired upon. She holds the dying police officer between her and the shooting cop as a shield against his wooden bullets. The Deputy gets off 10 rounds before Caroline drops the all but dead deputy and snarling rushes the one firing at blinding speed, knocking the gun out of his hand and giving him a vicious left cross with the back of her right hand and throwing the some six foot odd, 220lbs plus man him down unconscious. She retreats to a darken corner of the cellar moth bloodily and blond locks wild and growling like a banshee. Her mother looks at her with astonishment as Caroline walks out of the shadows breathing heavily. Then she stops and collects herself and suppresses her game face and she returns to human likeness. “Hi mom.” she says. Later Stefan has regained consciousness while Elena comforts him.

Caroline is sitting on the steps of the cellar; her mother sitting on a box hands neatly on her thighs refusing to look at her. Damon is feeding on the other fallen deputy, the one Caroline didn’t kill or bite, just knocked out. He is dead now as well. Damon crawls over to his brother saying he needs to drink some deputy blood. Stefan characteristically refuses even though it would rush the healing process from both the bullet wounds and the injected vervain. Caroline tells Stefan that Damon is right, “…if there is ever a time to break your diet…” Elena cuts her off. “He said he didn’t want it!” Then softer “Okay?” remembering she had just saved Stefan’s life at the cost of exposure to her mother. Damon gets up sneakily saying this was a most unfortunate situation, two deputies dead and then turning to the stoic Elizabeth “…and you. What I’m going to do with you?” Caroline perhaps naively says to her mother “You won’t tell anyone will you?” Elizabeth looks at her but looks away again without saying a word. Caroline says “mom” repeatedly but Elizabeth poignantly refuses to acknowledge her daughter “Please I know that we don’t get along and you hate me but…I’m your daughter and…you’ll do this for me right?” she says with pleading in her voice. No answer, her mom looks away to the ground. “Mom please, he will kill you!” referring to Damon who nodes his head yes.

Mom looks up and says almost pleading “Then kill me!” her face in despair. Caroline says no. “I can’t take this. Kill me now!!” she says as Damon approaches and Caroline gets up. “You were going to drag it out so painfully” Damon says to her throwing her own words back into her face as he looks at her almost nose to nose. Suddenly he grabs her and brings her to her feet. No no no!! Caroline cries behind him. DAMON DON’T!! DAMON PLEASE!!! Stefan and Elena respectively said. “Relax guys! No one’s killing anybody”. Then everyone sighs in relief and possibly surprise. Then to Elizabeth surprisingly tenderly and seeming to mean it. “You’re my friend” Then to the group: “We’ve got to clean this up.”

Caroline listens to her Mom and Damon

That night Caroline comes home to the Salvatore residence with a small travel bag of her moms clothes apologizing to Elena for being late that she didn’t know how long her mom was staying over Elena tells her that vervain takes about three days or sooner to leave the body. Stefan joins them and Caroline ask if he got some blood in him and he tells her he feels much better. They reach the door way of the cellar the brothers are keeping Elizabeth in. She was just about to enter when she heard her mother say “Keep Caroline away from me please; I don’t want to see her. Damon, knowing that Caroline was leaning against the door jam says “she’s your daughter Liz.” “Not any more” Elizabeth says disowning her daughter. “My daughter’s gone” “You have no idea how wrong you are about that!” says Damon and he looks at hidden Caroline sympathetically. After a moment Caroline sets down the bag and turns and leaves..Elena goes after her. She sits in the living room as from her pov Elena leaves again briefly and then comes back offering to take her home.

Spike (born William Pratt) was a famous and widely-feared vampire turned in 1880. He was well-known among both humans and demons for having faced and killed two Slayers during his unlife, and his history of torturing his victims with railroad spikes (which is rumored the moniker of Spike is derived from). His reputation for evil and bloodshed was second only to that of his grandsire Angelus. In his human life, William was an unsuccessful and unappreciated romantic poet known as William the Bloody, for his bloody awful poetry, though after he became a vampire, that moniker was re-purposed to imply he was very violent. After being sired by Drusilla, he reinvented himself and terrorized Europe alongside Drusilla, Angel and Darla throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.

Spike first traveled to Sunnydale in 1997, accompanied by Drusilla. He quickly established himself as one of Buffy Summers most dangerous enemies, but was eventually forced into a series of uneasy alliances with her and her team, the Scooby Gang, after being captured by the Initiative and implanted with a cerebral microchip that rendered him unable to harm humans. Eventually, Spike realized that he had fallen in love with Buffy and officially joined the Scooby Gang, later being motivated by his love for her to successfully fight to regain his soul.

Spike sacrificed his life in battle against the First Evil, both defeating its army of Turok-Han and permanently closing the Hellmouth, as well as destroying the town of Sunnydale. However, bound to an ancient amulet, Spike became an incorporeal entity haunting the halls of of Wolfram & Hart Los Angeles branch, then under the management of Team Angel. After becoming corporeal again, Spike struggled to find a place in the world, only to join Angel in his battle against the Senior Partners and become a Champion in his own right.

After a slew of adventures, Spike reunited with Buffy and the Scoobies in Europe and joined them in the battle against Twilight. When the world was made void of magic, he moved to San Francisco to continue fighting by Buffys side, but left for a time in the hopes of finding himself, before returning to San Francisco when he heard the news that Dawn Summers was sick. He then established himself in the city alongside the Scooby Gang, sharing an apartment with Xander and working as a supernatural consultant for S.F.P.D. With this new life, he and the Slayer gave a chance for a serious relationship.

William Pratt, 1880.

William Pratt[1] was born circa 1850 to 1853 in London, England to Anne Pratt and her unidentified husband. Anne often sang him the English folk song Early One Morning throughout his infancy and childhood.[2] By 1880, William had grown into a sentimental, and ineffectual gentleman who lived alone with his ill mother. He was a poet, and enjoyed a certain level of economic comfort. Struggling to make a place for himself in Londons high society, he attended parties, and was nicknamed William the Bloody because his poetry was so bloody awful. This moniker, with far deadlier connotations, followed him into his future as a vampire.

Drusilla sires William.

While he moved within elite circles, William found little in common with his contemporaries, who often made him the butt of their jokes. Still, he showed a strong capacity for loyalty and was highly devoted to the idea of love, two traits that remained with him long after his siring. After his romantic overtures were rejected by Cecily, a despondent William literally collided with Angelus, Darla and Drusilla, who had been terrorizing London. Drusilla followed him into an alley, where she found him in tears. She desired a playmate a knight , whom she could make hers forever. After a brief talk with the young poet, Drusilla seduced him and turned him into a vampire.[3]

After Drusilla sired William, she buried him and allowed him to be reborn as a vampire; he crawled from the depths of his own make-shift grave.[4] The pair partied for several days afterward, both draining human victims and drinking alcohol. They eventually decided to go back to Williams mothers residence, where a live-in servant ignorantly invited them inside.

William dusts his own mother.

Williams devotion for his mother remained with him even after he became a vampire. Anne Pratt suffered from tuberculosis, and, not wanting to see his mother die while he was gifted with eternal life, William sired her so she could join his afterlife. Unfortunately, after being sired, Williams mother was no longer the woman he had known. Without a soul, she taunted him, claiming that she had despised him all along, and insinuating that William had always had a sexual fascination with her. In the end, he was forced to stake her because he could not bear to see his mother in such a twisted light.[2] The entire experience remained terribly traumatic for William, as he was haunted by the memory over a century later when the First Evil used it to control him.[5]

After staking his mother, William began a new existence with Drusilla. Euphoric with his new-found vampiric abilities, he abandoned the genteel hypocrisy and morals of Victorian life but still remained emotionally sensitive. He was eventually introduced to Drusillas sire, Angelus, who initially embraced him by expressing an interest in killing with another man. At first, the innocent William idolized Angelus, but was still quick to disagree when he insulted Drusilla in his presence. He preferred to think of her as childish rather than insane, and treated her with undying loyalty.

Spike attempts to fight Angelus for Drusilla.

After walking in on Angelus having sex with her he was once again denied his desire for his idealized romance. Aware that Angelus had only slept with Drusilla to hurt and desensitize him after becoming aware of the extent of his infatuation with her, William declared to his grandsire that Drusilla was his destiny. Angelus openly mocked Williams romantic outlook on life, and explained that in a vampires world, such things as deserving and belonging no longer mattered as a vampire, William could take whatever he desired, but never truly have anything.[6] This incident brought about the beginnings of a rivalry that would carry on through both William and Angelus unlives.

William was urged to give up his last drop of aristocracy, and became a rebel, adopting a working class North London accent and embracing impulsiveness and violence. He took on the nom de guerre Spike, inspired by a detractor from his human days who had exclaimed he would rather have a railroad spike driven through his head than listen to Williams poetry. It was even indicated that he was involved in criminal activities, as Spike later remarked that he spent the better part of a century in delinquency. In the company of Drusilla, Darla and Angelus, Spike tyrannized Europe and Asia for the better part of two decades under the banner of the Whirlwind.

William first adopts the name Spike.

As time passed, he remained utterly devoted to Drusilla, and grew to despise and envy Angelus. Though Angelus did enjoy the company of another male vampire in their travels, he found Spikes eagerness for battle unnecessary. Angelus regarded killing as an art, not a sport, and brutalized for the sheer act of committing evil. He reveled in destroying his victims minds and bodies, while Spike did it for amusement and to feel the “rush.” Angelus avoided fights that he feared could result in his demise; Spike thought danger added to the thrill. Despite their vehement rivalry, they proved to be a formidable team, and bested many opponents.[7] In Sunnydale, Spike referred to Angel as his sire, likening Angelus to a mentor.[8] Spike later noted that although Drusilla had made him a vampire, it was Angeluss influence over him that had made him a monster.[6]

Spike also developed an intense and all-consuming obsession with Slayers. He reveled in dangerous battles, and to him there was nothing more exciting than a life-and-death struggle with his kind’s greatest adversary, the Chosen One. He first learned about the Slayer from Angelus, who used the term in an attempt to frighten him. It had a very different effect on the young vampire, who, from then on, sought out Slayers to battle.[3]

1890: Spike, Drusilla, Angelus, and Darla attended the ballet Giselle, in St Petersburg, Russia.[9]

1894: The four vampires were in Rome, Italy and encountered the Immortal. He locked up Angelus and Spike whilst simultaneously bedding Darla and Drusilla. This sparked a rivalry with the Immortal that made him the enemy of both Spike and Angel.[10]

October 1898: Spike & Dru were in Borsa, Romania with Angelus and Darla. Spike, however was oblivious that Angelus had been cursed and regained his soul. But he joined in the massacre of the clan Kalderash.[11]

November 28, 1898: Spike tried to convince Drusilla to forget about Angelus; since the incident with the Kalderash, he believed that they should consider him gone.

Spike kills his first Slayer, Xin Rong, in China in 1900.

June 18, 1900: in Beijing, China, Spike killed Slayer Xin Rong during the Boxer Rebellion. During the fight, in which she used a sword and Spike was unarmed, the Slayer gave him the scar on his left eyebrow, which he still had over a century later. Once again, Drusilla and Spikes attraction to each other was heightened by chaos and bloodshed, as they immediately become intimate after Spike has murdered Xin Rong.[3]

Shortly afterward, he and Drusilla lost touch with Darla and Angelus, and the couple wandered the world seeking amusement and mayhem, occasionally separating to pursue individual interests but always reuniting.

Spike in a submarine during World War II.

September 1943: Spike, Nostroyev, and the Prince of Lies were captured by Nazi agents at a virgin blood party in Madrid, and taken aboard a submarine which in turn was seized by Americans. However, Spike and the two other imprisoned vampires broke free and killed most of the crew. The trio was stopped from killing everybody by Angel (pretending to be Angelus), who arrived with instructions to deliver the submarine and the records of the Nazis experimentation with vampires to the United States military. While the submarine was delivered thanks to the help of the newly-sired Sam Lawson, Spike, who had burned the notes from the experiments, was forced by Angel to leave the submarine and swim back to land.[12]

Spike and Drusilla in Italy in the 1950s.

1953: Back in Rome with Drusilla, Spike had apparently caused a Black Widower demon to be in debt to him. The demon had avoided repaying his debt however, and Spike catches up to him when hes just had sex with then 18-year-old half-demon Pearl, and was about to eat her, while her brother Nash had been knocked out. In attempt to collect his debt, Spike became an accidental hero, decapitating the demon and inadvertently rescuing Pearl. She became fascinated by the vampire that she considered her hero.[13]

June, 1959: At some point, Spike spent time in prison for tax evasion because of the Immortal.

1963: Spike and Drusilla were caught in the middle of slaughtering an orphanage. Spike killed two members of the Watcher’s Council before Roger Wyndam-Pryce escaped with his life.[14]

At some point in a century or so of being his own boss, Spike employed a pair of Fyarl Demons as muscle (and learned their language), which is unusual because vampires and demons rarely get along; he continued this diversity in friendships and relationships throughout his unlife.

Spike confronts Nikki Wood, 1977.

1969: Spike attended Woodstock, where he drank blood from a flower child, and spent the next several hours watching his hand move; a side effect from the psychoactive drugs in their bloodstream.[8]

1977: He fought Nikki Wood, a Slayer in New York City at least twice. The first time he initially gave up but noted he loved her leather duster. The second battle was aboard a subway train, and stole her black leather duster, which he continued to wear even decades later.[3] At some point he met British punk rocker Billy Idol, who was inspired by Spike’s look and copied it.

1997: Spike and Dru traveled to Prague, where the pair was attacked by an angry mob. Drusilla was also kidnapped and severely tortured as a warning sign for other vampires to stay away from the city.[15]

Spike begins to hunt Buffy Summers.

Spike first appeared in Sunnydale accompanied by his longtime lover Drusilla, who had recently been wounded by an angry mob in Prague. He was a devoted caretaker to Drusilla in her weakened condition, and initially hoped the Hellmouths powerful energy would help to restore her strength. The presence of a Slayer made the town an even more attractive retreat to Spike. He tracked Buffy Summers down at The Bronze and observed her from afar. His interest in her immediately seemed more perverse than homicidal.

He was quick to reveal that he had killed two Slayers throughout his life, and hoped to make Buffy his third Slayer victim. Ironically, his plans were thwarted by his grandsire Angelus, whom he greeted as an old friend before realizing he was cursed with a soul and allied with the new Slayer, Buffy. Spike observed that it was very unusual for a Slayer to have family and friends so dedicated to her well-being Buffys way of life proved to be a direct affront to the duties of past Slayers. Still, Spikes impatience to fight Buffy had foiled the Order of Aurelius plans for the Night of Saint Vigeous. He killed the Anointed One and took control of then-defunct Order, planning to make things a little less ritual and a little more fun.[8]

Eventually, Spike discovered that Drusilla could only be healed by the blood of her sire; he was more than happy to kill Angel to restore her, and kidnapped him with the help of Willy the Snitch. He subsequently hired the Order of Taraka to assassinate Buffy, though he ultimately cancelled the bounty when she defeated the three assassins who had been sent.[16] With the help of Kendra Young, a second Slayer activated when Buffy drowned the previous year, Buffy tracked down Spike and Drusilla to the church where they were going to perform the ritual to heal Drusilla. The ensuing fight ended when Spike was crushed under a collapsing pipe organ; he was left paralyzed from the waist down for several months. Though Angel was saved, Spikes ritual succeeded, and Drusilla was restored to perfect health.[17]

Spike, Drusilla and Angelus, together once more.

Despite being incapacitated in a wheelchair, Spike made huge preparations for Drusillas birthday. He planned a large party at the factory, dressed their vampire lackeys in Gothic attire, arranged flowers to Drusillas insane standard and collected the pieces of the Judges body. Meanwhile, Angel and Buffy had grown closer than ever his curse was broken when he achieved a moment of pure happiness upon sleeping with her, and reverted to his soulless self.[18] After murdering several Sunnydale inhabitants, Angelus rejoined Spike and Drusilla, and plotted with Drusilla to destroy all of humanity. Spike initially celebrated their reunion with Angelus and demonstrated affection toward his grandsire, but their longtime rivalry was renewed over arguments about how to attack Buffy. Angelus, who was cruel and calculating, preferred playing mind-tricks with her, while Spike feared such actions would only anger her. Angelus also taunted the temporarily helpless Spike by pursuing Drusilla as a lover while Spike was unable to fulfill her needs as a result of his paralysis.

Spike continued to use his wheelchair even after he had recovered, feigning weakness to avoid suspicion while he plotted against Angelus. When Angelus decided to use the demon Acathla to suck the entire world into hell, Spike decided to ally himself with Buffy Summers; he explained to Buffy that, in addition to wanting Drusilla back, he also wanted to save the world. Despite Buffy opposing the idea to save Drusilla considering she had killed Kendra not hours earlier, they made an agreement when Rupert Giles life was on the line. Spike promised Buffy that he and Drusilla would leave Sunnydale for good after the battle ended. He helped Buffy during her battle against Angelus and Drusilla, and knocked Angelus unconscious long enough for Buffy to kill his minions and rescue her Watcher. Spike briefly fought Drusilla, who resisted betraying Angelus; he managed to knock her out; ever loyal to his promises,Spike departed Sunnydale with Drusilla once more, leaving Buffy to face Angelus alone.[19]

Spike and Drusilla end their centennial relationship.

It was later revealed that Spike and Drusilla traveled to Brazil, where she remained horrified by his alliance with the Slayer. Drusillas abilities caused her to sense that Spike would come to develop romantic feelings for Buffy; she rejected him and cheated on him with a Chaos demon,[3] which sent the lovelorn Spike into a long drunken depression.

He returned to Sunnydale, where he kidnapped Willow Rosenberg and Xander Harris and attempted to force Willow to cast a love spell on Drusilla. While in town he visited Buffys mother, Joyce Summers, who listened sympathetically to his heartache, and he recruited Buffy and Angel to help him gather ingredients for the spell. However, Mayor Richard Wilkins, knowing that Spikes mere presence in Sunnydale posed a threat to his plans, quickly organized a welcoming committee consisting of Spikes own former minions to deal with him. After fighting them off, Spike cheerfully abandoned the idea of enchanting Drusilla, resolving instead to win her back by torturing her until she loved him again and told the Slayer where to find her two missing friends. He also told Buffy and Angel that no matter what happened, they would never be friends because of their eternal love for one another. Buffy later remarked to Angel I can fool Giles, and I can fool my friends, but I cant fool myself or Spike, for some reason. This final quote foreshadowed the pivotal role Spike would someday come to play in Buffys group.[19]

The following year, Spike once again became estranged from Drusilla who this time left him for a Fungus demon, prompting him to return to Sunnydale alone to search for the Gem of Amara, a talisman that rendered vampires completely immune to all of the conventional vampiric weaknesses. He had an entire crew mine for it; when he acquired it his first action was to do battle with Buffy, now a college freshman, during the day. Buffy, however, took it from him mid-fight, causing him to flee from the sun. Buffy decided to give it to Angel.[20]

Spike fights Angel for the ring.

Spike later followed Scooby Oz to Los Angeles to retrieve it. He faced Angel and his new team, hiring a vampiric torturer who claimed he wasnt interested in the gem and had him torture Angel for its location. After arranging a trade with Cordelia Chase and Allen Francis Doyle, he was double crossed by the vampire and driven out of the city without the ring, which Angel subsequently destroyed.[21] By then, he had become involved with Harmony Kendall, a shallow young vampire who had been Cordelias best friend at Sunnydale High. Despite her beauty and affection, Spike treated her as little more than a nuisance and sexual plaything.

Spikes existence took a pivotal turn when he was captured by the Initiative, a secret demon-fighting government organization, the members of which implanted him with a cerebral microchip that rendered him unable to willingly harm or attempt to harm humans without experiencing crippling pain.[22] This chip became Spikes surrogate soul, as it forced him to consider the moral consequences of harming others, with the literal punishment of physical pain looming over his head if he ever did so. Unable to hunt for blood, and still pursued by the Initiative, he reluctantly made the decision to turn to the Scooby Gang for help.[23]

Spike becomes a reluctant ally of the Scooby Gang.

He was kept in Rupert Giles’s apartment, where the Scoobies bound him to a chair with ropes. He bartered his knowledge of the Initiative for shelter and blood; after being held captive both at the homes of Giles and Xander Harris, during which time he sank into a suicidal depression, and came close to staking himself. He later moved to a crypt in Sunnydale Cemetery, which he furnished to his liking throughout his years residing there.[24] In order to support himself, Spike took to mugging people with his vamp face without having to use any physical violence.[25]

Spike and Buffy briefly became engaged after Willow accidentally performed an enchantment; although the spell only commanded them to get married, each expressed love for the other, comically foreshadowing the bond they would in time share.[26]

Spike became ecstatic when Xander warned him of an upcoming apocalypse because he did want the world to end. He nonetheless managed to cheer himself up by viciously tearing down Willow and Xander emotionally, remarking that they were both useless to Buffy, who as a Slayer, would be better off if she didnt have to constantly watch out for both of them. Willow and Xander were forced to think of his words despite their mutual denial.[27]

After his discovery, Spike makes a new calling.

Spike came to discover that the chip did not prevent him from hurting demons, much to his joy, allowing him to be more independent of the Scoobies and move out to a crypt.[28] He subsequently became a reluctant ally of the Gang and provided them with assistance in exchange for cash or brawls. At this point, Spike was still interested in his own selfish well-being, and reminded the Scoobies of this constantly with one of his many catchphrases: Im Evil! Upon learning that the unstable Slayer Faith was on the loose, he proclaimed that he would find her and tell her the Scoobies exact whereabouts, and gleefully watch while she tore them apart.[29]

Spike later allied with Adam, a bio-mechanical demonoid created by the Initiative as part of their 314 Project, and helped him in his quest to destroy both the Initiative and the Scoobies once and for all. Spikes price was simple: he wanted the chip removed for good so he could return to his Big Bad self. In accordance with Adams plan, he managed to turn the Scoobies against each other by manipulating existing tensions within the group. Buffy, however, discovered the scheme and reconciled with the gang when Spike revealed too much information about his plot during an encounter in Adams former lair.

When Adam discovered that Spike had failed to split up the Scoobies, he made an attempt to kill him, but Spike managed to escape. After Buffy slew Adam, Spike saved Willow, Giles and Xander from an attacking demon in hope that they wouldnt kill him for his actions; indeed, they agreed to spare him out of fatigue and gratitude. Spike then helped the Scoobies and Riley Finn battle the rampaging demon hordes within the Initiatives complex, rescuing most of the soldiers. The Initiative was then shut down by the U.S. government, as it had proved an unsuccessful operation.[30]

Spike dreams about his love for Buffy.

Following the fall of the Initiative, Spike began offering more and more assistance to Buffy and the Scoobies. He told Riley about his old rivalry with Dracula,[20] and later punched Tara Maclay to prove that her fathers claims about her being a demon were untrue, as his chip caused him pain when he struck her, thus confirming that she was purely human.[20]

Despite this, after a failed attempt to force a former Initiative member to remove his chip, Spike became justifiably sick of Buffys near-constant presence in his unlife; an erotic dream sequence forced him to reconsider everything he had come to learn in his past hundred years of living. Initially, the dream featured Spike attempting to force Buffy to kill him in the hopes that he wouldnt have to exist in her world anymore; he even tore off his shirt in order to give her a clear shot with her stake. The dream concluded with them passionately kissing and led Spike to realize, much to his horror and confusion, that he had fallen in love with a Slayer.[31] Unsure how to proceed, he began keeping a nightly vigil outside her home, occasionally breaking in to collect items for his shrine to her beneath his crypt.

Spike attempts to get closer to Buffy.

Spike became a much more active participant in the Scooby Gang, jumping into several fights to give Buffy assistance regardless of whether or not she wanted it. Buffy sometimes took out her anger and frustration on Spike; he went along with it, as it allowed him to spend time with her. His one-sided devotion soon culminated in Buffy confronting him about his past after being severely wounded by a vampire; the experience had caused her to become briefly obsessed with the deaths of past Slayers, and Spike, having been responsible for two of them, had the information she desired.

His story revealed his fixation with Slayers to Buffy, who had him replay his battles with the two Slayers in great detail, fights he related to dances. Buffy was disgusted by his desire to dance with her, and pushed him to the ground. Spike was visibly hurt when she told him that he was beneath her, as this was first said to him when he was turned down by Cecily as a human. Equipped with a shotgun, he went to her house with the goal of killing her, but upon finding her on her back porch in tears about her mothers illness, cast aside his feelings of anger and humiliation and comforted her for the first time.[20]

Spike comforts Buffy.

Before his departure, Riley rightfully assessed that Spike had fallen in love with his girlfriend after he caught him sniffing Buffys clothes in her room. Spike took great pleasure in informing Riley about Joyces illness, which Buffy had intentionally neglected to tell him about. Spike then took Buffy to an abandoned house and exposed Rileys scandalous activities with a group of vampires who fed on humans safely and giving them a high in the process for cash. Riley confronted Spike soon afterwards, but Spike only taunted him about his relationship with Buffy. They drank together and discussed their separate situations regarding the Slayer. Riley asked Spike if he really thought he had any chance with Buffy and Spike responded with self-deprecation, stating that he knew he didnt but that he had to try anyway. Spike believed his situation was better than Rileys, who was close to Buffy, but never had her completely. Riley left Buffy and Sunnydale behind soon after.[20]

Later, when Dawn snuck out of the house on Buffys birthday in order to go to The Magic Box, Spike, who was standing vigil, decided to go along in order to protect her from any possible threats. He helped her break into the store, but ended up partly responsible for Dawn discovering her identity as the Key. Upon learning of Spikes involvement, Buffy immediately confronted him in his crypt. She attacked him, but Spike turned the tables on her by informing her that he had only accompanied Dawn to keep her safe. He also remarked that they should have just told Dawn earlier because she was bound to find out sooner or later. When Dawn ran away again during her identity crisis, Spike was quick to join the search party. Buffy tearfully admitted to Spike that he had been right; Spike then made an awkward attempt to comfort her, stating that Dawn, being a fourteen-year-old hormone bomb, would have eventually snuck out anyway. He assured Buffy that they would indeed find her little sister.[32]

Spike and Drusilla reunite.

Following this adventure a heavily burned Drusilla arrived in Sunnydale after she and Darla were immolated by Angel, with the aim of rebuilding her relationship with Spike and reuniting their family. She convinced Spike that despite his chip he was still a killer and let him feed on the blood of a woman she killed. Dawn, who had developed a crush on Spike, perceived his feelings for Buffy. She casually mentioned it to Buffy, who confronted Spike but was knocked out by him and Drusilla before Spike then turned against Drusilla. As Spike revealed his feelings to Buffy who was chained up in his crypt, she quickly and harshly rejected his advances, and Spike, not willing to give up without a fight, wanted her to witness him killing Drusilla, his once forever love. His plan failed, however, when a jealous Harmony intervened and a fight ensued between the three vampires and the Slayer. After Harmony and Drusilla left Spike, a furious and disgusted Buffy destroyed his shrine, had Willow revoke Spikes invitation into her house (something she had not bothered to do in the almost three years since their alliance against Angelus), and alienated him from the Scoobies.[33]

Following the sudden death of Joyce Summers, Spike attempted to pay his respects by leaving flowers at Buffys house, as he regarded her as the only person in Buffys life who had ever treated him decently. Xander immediately suspected he was merely attempting to take advantage of a painful situation to score points with Buffy, and couldnt be convinced otherwise until Willow discovered that Spike had left the card for Joyce completely anonymous. When Dawn attempted to resurrect Joyce, Spike helped her, but assured her that he didnt want any credit for it, as Buffy would drive a redwood through his chest if she found out he was involved. He was badly injured by a Ghora demon when they attempted to steal one of its eggs in order to perform the spell. Their efforts proved worthless when Dawn raised her mother as an assumed zombie, then broke the spell before the results were revealed.[34]

Buffy kisses Spike on her own will for the first time.

Still in the midst of his obsession, Spike had Warren Mears make the Buffybot, a robot created in Buffys likeness that was programmed to love and obey Spike. He briefly used the robot as a substitute for what he couldnt have with the real Buffy, but was soon captured by Glory’s minions, who had mistaken him for the Key. Though still thoroughly disgusted, Buffy lost much of her disdain for Spike after learning that he had refused to reveal the true identity of the Key to Glorificus, even under intense torture. She realized that he had laid down his life to protect Dawn, something she wouldnt have thought possible of him. She was ultimately very moved by his unexpected sacrifice, and as a reward, kissed him and told him that she would never forget what he had done for her.[35]

Buffys trust in Spike grew immensely from there, a prime example being when she left Dawn with him in his crypt after Glory “brain-sucked” Tara. While there, Dawn tearfully blamed herself for Glorys attacks on her friends (including Spikes torture at Glorys hands) and believed herself a lightning rod for pain. Spike consoled her as best he could, telling her that as a vampire, he knew a thing or two about evil, and she wasnt it. When Buffy later joined them, believing that she had managed to talk Willow down from taking vengeance on Glory, Spike quickly pointed out that Willow, being a very powerful and angry witch, would not be so easily reasoned with regarding someone she loved being hurt, causing Buffy to immediately rush to her rescue.[36]

After Glory discovered that Dawn was the Key, Buffy allowed Spike to accompany the Scoobies when they fled from Sunnydale (much to the chagrin of Giles and Xander). Buffy knew that Spike was the only person besides herself who stood any chance at protecting Dawn against Glory.[37] In the days and hours leading up to the final showdown with Glory, Spike fought bravely by Buffys side, earning both her trust and a re-invitation into her home. Spike ultimately accepted that Buffy would never love him, and settled for having her trust; he said that though he knew he was a monster, she treated him like a human being.

Spike tries to protect Dawn, having promised Buffy.

During the final battle, he tried desperately to save Dawn from Glorys minion, Doc, who was attempting to draw Dawns blood as part of the ritual. Spike was easily outmaneuvered and fell off a thirty foot tower, where he was unable to assist Dawn further; this would remain one of his deepest regrets after Buffys death in the battle. Upon setting eyes on her lifeless body, he collapsed in sorrow and wept openly.[38] Ever faithful, he honored her memory by remaining loyal to her friends, and officially joined the Scooby Gang. He fought at their side and served as Dawns protector/sitter for months, and even helped Willow and Tara raise her in Buffys absence. Deprived of purpose, he kept track of the number of days since her death until her resurrection.

Spike discovers Buffy alive 148 days after her death.

Spike remained unaware of the Scoobies plan to resurrect Buffy until after the event; he returned to the Summers’ residence in search of Dawn, only to discover Buffy alive-and-well 148 days after her death.[4] He, like a few of the others, considered the possible drawbacks of such an extreme act, but later expressed that, had the spell gone wrong, he wouldnt have let the others destroy the result if it had retained even the slightest part of the real Buffy. Unable to confide in her friends about being torn from Heaven due to guilt, Buffy began to go to Spike for comfort, who willingly accepted both the best and worst of her emotions.

Their physical relationship began after the demon Sweet cast a spell that caused them to share their true emotions through song. Buffy had begun to crave the ability to feel again, and expressed that she wanted the fire back. Meanwhile, Spike accused her of using him in the form of a serenade, and reiterated his desire for her to let him rest in peace, whilst simultaneously begging her to stay by his side. Their mutual desires clashed in the alleyway behind the Bronze, where they kissed.[39]

Spike and Buffy begin a (literally) destructive sexual relationship.

Though Buffy denied the act at first, their tension was finally consummated when Spike discovered that his chip no longer stopped him from harming the resurrected Buffy. He initially thought that it had stopped working, and attempted to feed on a woman, only to be shocked with pain. He then extorted a band of geeks to assess his chip, who told him that it was still completely functional; Spike came to the conclusion that it was Buffy who had changed, rather than the chip. He showed her, claiming Buffy had come back from heaven wrong. Fighting back, she pushed Spike into an abandoned house, where they exchanged both insults and blows until they shared their first sexual encounter. Although the already dilapidated house crumbled down around them, they didnt notice, and allowed the moment to unfold.[40]

Buffy initiated their relationship partly as a way to punish herself, and partly as a means of connecting to life again. Buffy instituted much of the violence and sex between them which Spike happily took, and threatened to kill Spike if he ever told anyone about their time together. Both members remained unsatisfied with their continued sexual acts; Buffy was very ashamed of her dark desires, while Spike pitifully craved the love, trust and affection that she refused to give him. When Buffy believed she had killed a human, Katrina Silber, Spike tried to fix the problem by dumping the body into a river before Buffy could confess. When he revealed what he did and attempted to prevent her from alerting the police, a guilt-ridden Buffy took out her frustration on Spike, and beat him thoroughly.[41]

Buffy ends her relationship with Spike.

Shortly after Buffys ex-boyfriend, Riley, returned to Sunnydale in search of a Suvolte demon egg smuggler, Spike egotistically informed him of his relationship with Buffy after Riley caught them together. Though Riley pretended not to care, he did accuse Spike of being the smuggler under the alias of the Doctor. His accusations were somewhat confirmed when he found the Suvoltes eggs in Spikes crypt, though Spike claimed to be holding them for a friend. Buffy ended things with Spike after Riley left, admitting that she had just been using him and that it was tearing her up inside with guilt.[42]

Spike subsequently tried to make her jealous by bringing a date to Xander and Anya Jenkins wedding.And after Xander left Anya at the altar, Spike got drunk with the one-again Vengeance Demon at The Magic Box. He and Anya were able to relate easily as each had recently been abandoned by their loved ones, and sought brief solace in each others arms where they were caught on camera and seen by the Scoobies. Xander tried to kill Spike in a jealous rage but Buffy stopped him in time and her secret relationship with Spike was revealed as a result. After witnessing Buffys clear jealous reaction to his sexual liaison with Anya, Spike came to believe that he still had a chance to win her back.[43]

Spike, realizing he almost raped Buffy.

His attempts proved worthless, however. After being lectured by Dawn, he lost control of his obsession and cornered an injured Buffy in her bathroom. He made sexual advances towards her, and when she refused him, he grew desperate and tried to rape her. After Buffy fought him off, Spike was shocked at his own behavior and tried to deny he would do anything, but he was violently reminded that the demon portion of his being still existed. In tears, Buffy dared him to ask why she could never love him, but he quickly fled her house. He returned to his crypt in shame, to then left Sunnydale for the first time in nearly three years.[44]

Spike receives his soul back.

He traveled to a remote location in Africa in seek of a legend. There, he underwent the Demon Trials, a series of brutal physical and mental tests, to prove his worth to the demon shaman in exchange for what he asked: to be what he once was, what Buffy deserved. After his completion of the trials, the demon shaman finally restored his desired soul.[45]

Spike wracked with guilt in the Sunnydale High School basement.

With the returning of Spikes soul came a conscience filled with guilt, both for the sins he had committed throughout his life and his more recent attack on Buffy. He couldnt bring himself to see her for some time, and took shelter in the basement of the newly constructed Sunnydale High School, where he presumably lived on rats. There, he was tormented by both the First Evil and his soul, and appeared to be losing his mind; he forced Buffy to leave when she discovered him, and sadly showed her that he had tried to cut out his own heart in self-contempt.

During a moment of clarity, he helped Buffy to track down a Sluggoth Demon created by Anya, during which time Buffy came to realize what had happened to him during his missing weeks. Buffy, touched by his efforts, asked him why he had fought for his soul. Spike replied in partly cohesive mutters: “For her. To be hers. To be the kind of man who would never to be a kind of man and she shall look on him with forgiveness and everybody will forgive and love and he will be loved.” Spike wanted not only redemption for his past, but for Buffy to forgive him for what he had done to her. Buffy agreed in compassion and a little in awe of this development, and after enlisting his assistance for a while, brought him out of the basement and welcomed him back into her circle of close companions.[20]

Buffy discovers that Spike has regained his soul.

Because Buffy insisted and because he had nowhere else to go, Spike once more became reluctant room-mates with Xander Harris.[46] Though Spikes mental and physical condition rapidly improved, the arrangement backfired when he, under the control of the First Evil, unwittingly killed innocent humans. Spike initially had no memory of his actions; after discovering what he had done, he begged Buffy to kill him, but Buffy refused to do so, and instead took him home to her house.[5] She told him that he would live on because she had seen him change. In the Summers residence he suffered from human blood withdrawals, and remained vulnerable to the Firsts influence, and was willingly confined with ropes.[47] Meanwhile, Buffy guarded and cared for Spike throughout his recovery. She told him that she believed in him, a statement that would sustain him later through his imprisonment and torture at the hands of the First and its minions.[48]

Spike frenzies under the Firsts influence.

After Buffy rescued him from the First, Spike helped her to train Potential Slayers by sparring with them. In the meantime, his chip began to malfunction, causing him intense pain and threatening to end his life. To the dismay of Giles and her friends, Buffy showed her lasting trusted in Spike by ordering the Initiatives operatives to remove the chip from his head for good, telling him that he had the potential to be a good man.[49]

She also took Spikes side when Robin Wood attempted to kill him in retribution for the murder of his mother, Nikki Wood, the Slayer Spike killed in New York in the late 70s. Ironically, by trying to kill Spike while he was under the influence of the Firsts programming, Wood freed Spike from the hypnotic trigger (the song Early One Morning, that Spikes mother once sang to him). The song evoked Spikes traumatic memories of his mothers abusive behavior after he turned her. Finally able to address these issues, Spike realized that his mother had always loved him, knowledge that freed him from the Firsts control for good. Afterwards, he bit and brutally pulverized Wood, but let him live out of respect for Nikki. Spike assured Buffy that he had given Wood his last chance, and that he would kill Robin without hesitation if he so much as looked at him the wrong way again. Buffy was more than supportive, stating that she would let him do it; both she and Spike knew that they had no more time for pointless vendettas.[2]

Spike shows his love and admiration for Buffy by restoring her confidence in herself.

Spike remained selflessly loyal to her when the other Scoobies and the Potentials removed her from her position as leader, and criticized them for treating Buffy with so little respect after all she had done for them. He even brawled briefly with Slayer Faith Lehane before leaving to find Buffy. He tracked her down in a house that had been left abandoned when its owner fled Sunnydale, where Spike offered emotional comfort and unconditional love, helping restore Buffys battered confidence and will to fight.[50] Buffy had Spike hold her while they fell asleep, a night he would later declare as the best of his life.His words had also restored the depressed Buffys self belief, and allowed her to trust her instincts, follow her hunch about the secret weapon being at the Vineyard, and helped her win back her role as leader of the army after Faith accidentally led the Potentials into a near-fatal trap. Spike returned with her.[51]

A New The Walking Dead Trailer Teases The Resurrection …

AMC

Season eight of The Walking Dead ended with the Ricks capture of Negan, as well as Maggies plot to potentially take down Rick over his refusal to kill Negan.

However, just because Negan has been neutralized for the time being doesnt mean that hes no longer a threat. With Lauren Cohan exiting the show (at least temporarily), Morgan on Fear, and Rick Grimes leaving the show permanently, the show will lose three of its biggest leaders, opening up a vacuum in that department. Meanwhile, the various camps Alexandria, The Hilltop, the Kingdom, the Saviors, and Oceanside appear to be at loggerheads with no iron fist up top to provide discipline.

With the threat of The Whisperers on the horizon, Negans brutal methods and his ability to unite his own people through fear may actually become necessary to the survival of everyone else. In other words, Negan is going to continue playing a central role in the series, and as Negan threatens in the latest teaser, Rick is not saving the world. [Hes] just getting it ready for me.

The Walking Dead Season 9 Teaser Promises New Beginnings

AMC has released a new promo for season 9 of The Walking Dead, titled New Beginnings, which offers more of the struggle Rick and co. will face when the series makes its anticipated return on October 7. Check it out below!

Last season brought the culmination of All Out War, which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negans life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values of his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group.

Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Ricks steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors.

As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.

The Walking Dead season 9 spoilers: Rick Grimes exit to begin …

Season nine of The Walking Dead is set to leave viewers a little shellshocked as many aspects of the beloved show are about to get changed.

If the death of Carl Grimes (played by Chandler Riggs) wasnt bad enough last season, it has since been announced that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) will be making his exit.

Although it has not yet been announced how Rick will be leaving the show, it has been confirmed he will only be appearing in six episodes.

But while it has yet to be revealed whether Rick will make it through the show alive, he may have more time on the show than initially thought.

According to ComicBook.com the first episode of season nine will have a run time of 86 minutes.

This is one of the longest episodes of the show ever aired, almost as long as season eights 88 minute midseason finale, and twenty minutes longer than season eights premiere.

Viewers could be looking at a relatively slower paced first episode this year, as it was also confirmed the show will see an 18-month time jump after the brutal end to All Out War.

In the premiere fans are sure to see how the group has progressed since the defeat and capture of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

Fans will also presumably see how the dynamics in the group have changed since the fall of Negan, and how they are all preparing for the loss of Rick.

But will the first episode of the season begin outlining how Rick will be leaving the show?

The plot synopsis for season nine was recently released by AMC, which included: Last season brought the culmination of All Out War, which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negans life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him.

As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilisation that our survivors have worked so hard to build.

These unexpected obstacles could put Rick in danger in the coming months, but could he be betrayed by one of the members of his team?

New showrunner Angela Kang recently spoke about the changes upcoming in the show, and the real reason Negan was spared by Rick.

She said: We talked about it in the writers room, just this idea of, when a war ends and then you have people who are soldiers in the war, generals what happens when theres no real transition? Because its an apocalypse, said Angela on The Walking Dead season nines preview special.

I think in a lot of ways, Rick goes down there and its part therapy and part gloating. Theyre just trying to work their way through it. They both feel in some ways like dinosaurs after the war.

As Rick is trying to figure out whats the next step, whats the next mission, Negan kind of needles him, but Rick needs to be able to justify, This is why I kept you alive, its so that we can have a future.

Meanwhile Rick may find himself receiving kickback from Maggie (Lauren Cohan) in the upcoming season, as she has spent the last 18 months working with the farming community.

While she holds all of the food, she then in turn holds all of the power – and she may not roll over for anyone.

The Walking Dead season 9 will air later this year on AMC and FOX UK.

The Walking Dead likes to let its big episodes run long, and that tradition will continue with the Season 9 premiere. Comicbook.com reports that the Oct. 7 kickoff will air from 9pm ET to 10:26pm ET, which equals about a full hour of content.

The episode’s title has not yet been released, but we know it’s directed by Walking Dead executive producer and effects guru Greg Nicotero, who always directs premieres and finales.

Season 9 will open with a time jump a year and a half into the future. The communities have rebuilt after the events of the war with the Saviors and they are adjusting to a medieval way of life without bullets or gasoline. But dissent is brewing as Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) loyalists grumble and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) questions Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) leadership.

Lincoln and Cohan are leaving the show in Season 9, while Samantha Morton will be joining as scary new skinsuit-wearing villain Alpha.

The Walking Dead Season 9 premieres Sunday, Oct. 7 on AMC.
