Romantic Moment #10
“Earshot” from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1999)
So my friend was a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and took me along for the ride. I loved it, especially Angel (David Boreanaz).
Why did he have to leave the show?
Anyways, he makes it so hard to pick just one romantic moment, darn you super romantic guy. But I think I settled on a moment that truly shows how much he cares for Buffy.
So this episode takes place during season three. The Mayor has been revealed as evil:
Faith accidentally killed a guy and has gone crazy, siding with the mayor and trying to destroy Buffy (Sarah Michelle Geller).
They tried to take away Angel’s soul so that he is evil
He joins Faith, dating her now:
But it turns out to be a plot cooked up by Buffy and Angel to get info on the mayor.
However, having Angel going off and be with Faith like that has given Buffy lots of doubts and uncertainty about if Angel really cares about her and what really happened between them.
She fights a demon, but accidentally gets its blood on her. This gives her the power to read minds.
But soon this goes bad. The powers grow so strong that she can’t stop hearing voices, her mind hurts so bad, and she overheard that someone is trying to kill everyone in the school.
Buffy gets sent home to rest, while her watcher Giles searches for a cure, and the rest of the crew try to find out who is the possible murderer.
Most Romantic Moment: Angel Practically Gets Burned Alive to Save Buffy
So Buffy is going to go completely insane unless she can drink this antidote. The only problem? They need the other demon’s heart, but how can they get it without the Slayer?
That’s right, Angel goes out and spends all night and half the day searching for the demon, killing him and bringing back the heart. Now why is that romantic? Well Angel is a Vampire, and has risked his life and suffered in pain; burning in the sunlight. I mean he was literally smoking.
And he continues through this to track down the only thing he knows can save Buffy, because he loves her.
And if that’s not enough he then stays by her side watching her until he knows she is okay.
