Comments: Evil, brash, brutal and clever, Spike (a.k.a. William the Bloody) was one of the most infamous vampires ever documented by the Council of Watchers. A slayer of two Slayers, Spike terrorized Europe and beyond with Angelus, Darla and his sire, Drusilla for more than a century. In the episode "Fool For Love", Buffy is thrown by an injury she receives from a normal vampire, so she seeks Spike's council on how he was able to kill two Slayers. Spike agrees to share his history, for a price. What is revealed to the audience is the surprising tale of William, a shy, 1800s poet that, on the heels of a devastating romantic rejection, ended up in the arms of Drusilla and his ultimate vampiric salvation.
