Day #20: Best Spike-centric episode

To be honest I had to Google 'Spike-centric episodes' as off-hand none came to mind. Well one did, but once I'd Googled and checked BuffyWorld, I discovered that actually Spike is hardly in the episode - even though it was the one where he got his soul back.

So I am going with 'Pangs' from Season Four.

It's the episode in which Buffy wants to host the perfect Thanksgiving dinner at Giles's home; where Spike gets thrown out of his own crypt by Harmony and goes to Giles and Buffy for help and spends the dinner tied to a chair; where Xander accidentally releases Native American vengeance spirit and Angel comes to Sunnydale to protect Buffy - but without her knowing, except Xander (as he so often does) opens his mouth and lets it slip that Angel is/was in Sunnydale.

The dinner in particular stays in my mind with Spike tied to the chair and the battle happening, Spike falling over, chair and all, and the immortal line 'What happened? Did we win?' And once more the Scoobies have a vampire on their side - even though it's fair to say it wasn't totally out of choice, but out of necessity given Spike couldn't actually bite anyone.

It was a fun episode with good parts for all concerned and I really did enjoy Spike in this one.
