Who was Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s greatest love is still such a burning question that even politicians are involved. Now actor David Boreanaz, who played Angel, says if he was her only true love.
It’s one of the big debates of the late 90s and early Aughts TV – was Angel or Spike Buffy, the vampire slayer’s greatest love, for the WB hit. The youthful vampire hunter played by Sarah Michelle GellarThe 43-year-old found her first true love in Angel, the good vampire played by David Boreanaz. But after the actor and character got a spin-off, Buffy found love again for Spike, played by James Marsters, 58. Former Bones star David, 51, now says he was the real love in Buffy’s life, according to former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams recently claimed it was Spike.
“I’m just going to say this, man, true love is first love and first love is true love. Drop the microphone. End of story, ”David tells The Wrap in response to Stacey and others who send Spike. “I don’t think we have to go on. I mean, it’s pretty easy, isn’t it? Let’s really think about it for a second. Your first love is your true love, your true love is your first love. End of the story.”

David even addressed Stacey as Team Spike and said, “With all due respect, Stacey Abrams, I disagree. But you know, hey, you’re coming out of the character’s mouth here. I think I’ll be the last word on this. “Whoa da David, that seems like a SECOND mic drop!
David’s vampire with a soul, Angel, was Buffy’s first love – though there was a time when he got angry and wanted to kill her – for seasons one through three. After that, the actor and character got a spin-off called Angel. That opened the door to Spike, who became the next major vampire to win Buffy’s heart. Introduced as the villain in the second season of School Hard, he came from Angel’s past. With his sexy punk rock-style bragging rights and his sharp tongue, he was an instant hit with fans.

Stacey – widely lauded for focusing the past two years on the voter registration efforts that helped turn Georgia Democrat Blue around during the 2020 presidential election – actually got on with the Spike vs. Angel for Buffy’s true love on Twitter. She replied to a Buffy fan on November 9 who claimed that Stacey “sent” Spike, and the 46-year-old politician replied, “To be fair, Angel was the right friend for Buffy who came under her control. Spike was the right man when she came to power. “Spoken like a wise Buffy fanatic, even though David disagrees.
