Let’s talk about Drusilla, who Spike is attempting to revive to full health in this two parter. I’ll go into the plot more in Part II.
We’ve seen that she has certain extra-sensory abilities that haven’t been observed in other vampires, having the ability to sense and predict things… (“Don’t worry. Everything’s switching. Outside to inside. It makes her weak ” “Did my pet have a vision?…”It hums. I can hear it.”) And this probably endows her with a very unique perception of the world. Add that to all of the psychological damage that Angel inflicted + the influence of the demon and you have one complicated vampire.
I thought I’d do something a little different for this review and do a stream of consciousness review.
Spike and Drusilla are here you guys! Spike and Drusilla.
Some Assembly Required: This is not one of the reasons season 2 is my favorite. But, it has awesome Giles/Jenny development and Cordelia funtimes.
So in this episode, Giles and Miss Calendar go on a date. Or should I say Jenny? I don’t think she even mentioned her first name before, because that’s the first I’ve heard of it. It’s cute anyway, it suits her. Oh, and some stuff happened with a guy who resurrected his dead brother and went around trying to make a creepy Frankenstein’s monster girlfriend for him by cutting up dead girls. But, y’know, that’s kind of unimportant, I didn’t really pay attention to that.
“We need to… kick start a revolution. We need to get a chain reaction going here!”
– Eric Harris, Columbine Shooter
“I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same.”
– Rachel Scott, Columbine Victim
Who inspires you?
I’ve suffered the longest bout of writers block I’ve ever suffered, and thought how better to get back into the swing of things than to share the words of someone who inspires me, who has left an impact on me and planted seeds of thinking that have never entirely gone away.
I never met Rachel Scott, but I was inspired by the difference in these two statements, which were made in March of 1999 before the Columbine school shootings.
As her father said in an interview, it was like Rachel and Eric were laying down a double challenge to their entire generation.
I believe the term we’re searching for is OMG.
Remember how I said in an earlier recap that on the day Tyler and Caroline have sex, my blog will be plastered with so many unicorn pictures you will think that rainbow has exploded on it?
Vampire Barbie and Teen Wolf may not be able to have baby Klauses (as far as we know), but they sure have fun trying in The Birthday.
Let’s talk about S-E-X bbs, I mean U-N-I-C-O-R-N-S…
Spoilery discussion under the cut!
