Buffy: First Spike Episode!

Posted on Jun 08, 2011 by Mary

Tonight at 10... the Buffy episode "School Hard" is on -- the one where we first meet the platinum-haired, "thorough, goal-oriented", scary-hot vampire slayer-slayer who "doesn't stop until everything in his path is dead" (orrrr until he falls in love with a slayer... spoiler alert!) Spike, aka William the Bloody, aka this guy:

Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Spike, the Vampire

Not to be confused with the other Spike, from Degrassi:

Spike Nelson from Degrassi High
Spike, the original Degrassi teen mom

Even though they both have truly inspired hair from the best pages of the '80s. But one tortured his victims with railroad spikes and has a creepy undead girlfriend named Drusilla, and one was a teen mom who gave birth to Emma and married Principal Simpson. Different strokes, different folks.

We know this can be a difficult distinction to remember; let us know if you have any questions.
