So far, I'm not buying it. And while I may have missed it (I kind of devour series, it took me 3 weeks to go through all of Buffy, in ~3 weeks I should finish all of Angel) the whole "vampire with a soul saves enough people becomes human" prophecy is lost on me.. this season is the first I remember hearing anything about it.. and Spike's inference of what he did in Sunnydale kind of fits. The problem with adding Spike the way they did infers the acceptance of the conclusion of Buffy. Which is fine, but as I complained in the Buffy thread, it implied every girl would be a slayer now. So, why isn't Fred a Slayer, etc. with Slayer powers? That was one of my one many complaints at the end of Buffy.. because I thought that bit was pretty ridiculous. Too many Alexanders in the world, so to speak.. maybe a Ghengis here and there..
