Club has a truly fantastic interview with James Marsters, aka Spike. That scene, in which Spike tries to get Buffy to say she loves him, and ends up nearly raping her, is devastating to watch.

Following graduation, Cordelia moved to Los Angeles, where she began working with Buffy’s ex-boyfriend, Angel. As Buffy prepares to close the Hellmouth, Cordelia and Giles attempt to talk her out of jumping into the pit alone. Stubborn as always, she refuses to let them go with her — not just because she wants to protect them from harm, but because she is fresh with grief over the death of Willow Rosenberg.
Buffy elbows Cordelia, seemingly knocking the wind from her, then gives her over to Giles, demands that he get them both to safety and jumps.

At the end of “Where All Paths Lead,” Buffy is told she was too late to save the world and that everything — and everyone — is gone.
