I agree, "Amends" is pro Buffy&Angel.

any arguments in that?

 

Angel's bigger destiny is presented. Buffy as a roadblock in Angel's redemption is presented. Dark Forces getting to Angel through Buffy. THE IDEA that while demon in him made it possible for him to do all those horrible things in the past and in sunnydale, it all coming from ANGEL and who he is is finally directly spelled out.  Buffy outright pushes him into seeking a way to atone for it all instead of giving up.

 

They are two very different characters. . . 

yet again. we must be watching VERY different shows.

The arguement that "one just lack morality, remorse etc etc whatever" doesn't make sense. Remorse and morality is what shape us. 

 

You can't say they are similar "other than one being bound by remorse and the other being free". That is a freaking huge leap and difference in character.

It's like saying "Buffy and Xander is the same, Buffy is just a slayer".

Not remorse. Spike was capable of that. MORALITY. Moral guidance. Its essentially a whole of who he is. 

Morality just restricts our darker urges. Vampires are a whole set of psychological longings and urges the identity had before.

 We saw enough of soullessness to KNOW how it works. Hell, we SAW soulless Buffy in S4.

Nope.

But Willow and Buffy are the same. And Buffy and Spike. and Buffy and Faith.

not to mention that Season Two Angel pretty much proves my point too. 

And season five angel.

and btvs season eight angel.

unfortunately, Angel is a mask that Angelus is forced to wear.

Angelus is pretty much the closest to Liam's personality. Buffy can't even accept this part of Angel. That's why I can never agree or consider Bangel as true love. Buffy even tolerated and hung out with Spike even without a presence of a soul.

Well, to be fair.

Liam was sort of a monster of a person and got even worse when he became Angelus. Frankly had he not died and gotten turned, I would not have surprised on if Liam ended up a serial killer or something like that. 

William on other hand was not malicious neither as human nor as vampire.

They are entirely different beings both trying to change their nature for entirely different reasons.  

 

Angel is Liam's denial of his own nature, so to say.

Angelus is Liam's embrace of his own nature.

Its impossible to "Accept" Liam's whole nature as its essnetially a monster. An embodiment of ill intent. Angelus is an artist of death and his understanding of "love"  is impossible to accept. 

Spike, even soulless spike, on other hand, is not malicious by itself and is driven by  same urges of romance, chivalry, empathy, love, poetry and all that other stuff as human William was.  

 

The whole of "Angel" is impossible to love. And thats what Amends is about. Angel when he is Angel, might have morals and guilt and all that stuff, but all that makes up Angelus is still there, in him, and, arguably, Angel is far more dangerous one, because while Angelus has passion for destruction and is disconnected from others, Angel is driven by his emotions and his understanding everyone else.

well when you love someone you have to accept the person fully,

inmho bangel is pure high school puppy love aka infatuation. buffy loved the idea of angel not him

Buffy did seem to thoroughly ignore the existence of Angelus in Angel, true. And yeah it was a childhood love, the show pretty much spelled it out. 

 

Cordelia on other hand understood what Angelus means for Angel's own identity and nudged Angel into the right direction, while Faith understood Angel because she saw herself in him(and vice-versa).

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
