Subject: Why did Spike go to Africa?

"Spike reaches an impasse: he isn't human, but he's no longer much of a demon. He journeys to Africa--ostensibly, to get rid of the chip. But that's not the wish the demon guide grants him."

Just thought I'd let you know, that Spike actually did go to Africa to get his soul. I'm aware that my word isn't exactly a resource so I've included some quotes about it from the writer. I adore your site, it is so informative and has been a great help for my thesis, which is why I was surprised when I saw that tiny flaw. I'm not a hardcore Spike redemptionist or anything just a hardcore perfectionist. lol.

"Spike's quest was, and ALWAYS WAS, to get his soul restored for Buffy, despite any misleading leaks we may have put out that you fell for." - David Fury on the Bronze Beta, 11/19/02

Joss Whedon: "Noooo.... but you were meant to think that. I personally devised something called a plot twist."
At the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences panel "Behind the Scenes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer," 6/18/02

"Spike looked into his soul at that moment [the attempted rape], and saw the demon in him, and that's what made him want to go get a soul .... We did a big ole mislead on you all, where we wanted you to think he gonna go get the chip out. We knew, the whole time, from the very beginning he was gonna go get a soul. And when he says I want Buffy to have what she deserves, he means a lover with a soul." - Jane Espenson, Buffy writer
