The Appetizers - [Buffalo
Wings] (spicy chicken wings) and Those [Onion
Blossom] Things are Spike's favorite
appetizers. Being a vampire, he doesn't need
food to survive; however, he likes to eat (and
drink) very much.
Buffy are at The Bronze and he is about to
tell her how he killed two Slayers, at her
request — Fool for Love:
I agreed to your little proposition, we can
do this my way. Wings.Spicy buffalo wings.
Order me up a plate. I'm feelin' peckish.

chicken wings too. Also a sort of a
flower-shaped thing they make from an onion.
vampire even shared with Andrew the secret
about making a good "onion thing in the shape
of a flower" — Empty Places:
genius of it is you soak it in ice water for
an hour so it holds its shape. Then you

The Chip - Behavior
modification circuitry on Spike's head,
implanted by the Initiative in 1999. It kept the
vampire from hurting humans. In 2003, it started
giving Spike painful headaches that would kill
him eventually; he and Buffy asked for help from
Riley Finn and the Initiative, and the chip,
according to Buffy's choice (it could have been
fixed), was removed (The Killer in Me).
The Blood - After being
chipped, Spike started feeding off pig's blood.
However, sometimes, he used to steal bags of
blood from hospitals (The Weight Of The
World), or go to demon bars — like Willy's
Place — and give himself a treat:
of O-neg, 'keep. And make it the good stuff.
I don't want no freaking orangutan.
The Coat - The leather duster
that Spike took from the second Slayer he
killed, in 1977 (Fool for Love),
was the trade mark of the "evil vampire". He
left the coat behind, in Buffy's house, after
forcing himself on her (Seeing Red);
afterwards, he left Sunnydale to seek out a
reasonable explanation, the duster appeared at
Sunnydale High. After listening to Buffy say
that "he is holding back since he got his soul
back" and that what she wanted was "the
dangerous Spike", the vampire went to the
school basement and found the coat inside a
box (Get it Done). He didn't go
all evil, at all, but the coat helped him to
get back that old bad-ass attitude from the
on the Internet about how the duster could
have ended up in the school basement: when
Buffy and Clem met at the demon bar (Potential),
they greeted each other effusively, as they
were old, good friends; then, Clem said to
Buffy he watched a show on the History Channel
she would have loved. How could he know that?
So, it's possible that during the summer,
Buffy kept going to Spike's crypt to check if
the vampire was back in town and Clem was
still living there. She could have taken the
duster to the crypt, and later, Clem gave it
to soulled Spike, who was living at the
school's basement. Also, the demon should have
told Spike about what Willow had done to
Warren, because the vampire knew about the
Time, Same Place).
duster was destroyed in a explosion in Rome,
when Spike and Angel went there looking for
Buffy; however, Ilona Costa Bianchi, CEO of [Wolfram
& Hart], not only gave him a new
one, but also sent other 10 to Los Angeles —
with a fine assortment of shoes (Angel/The
Girl in Question).
The Scar - Spike got his scar
fighting the Chinese Slayer, in 1900 (James
Marsters got it after being mugged in New York).
The TV Set - Spike likes
watching TV very much; the poor thing had a
crappy black & white TV set in his crypt,
which sometimes used to show mostly static — The
Gonna have to pinch one of those satellite
show was [Passions] — he
used to be very upset when he missed an
episode of it. When he was chained to the
bathtub in Gile's apartment, it was provided a
TV set for him. One day, Giles was on the
phone and Spike, not able to turn on the TV,
got desperate in the bathroom — Something
Passions is on! Timmy's down the bloody
well, and if you make me miss it, I'll-
You'll do what? Lick me to death?
Giles had a
friend coming to town; as he would like them
to be alone, Spike had to move — to Xander's
place — Hush:

to train in the back.
Boy, you've really thought this through. How
bored were you last year?
I watched Passions with Spike. Let us never
speak of it.

The Blanket - Spike uses a
blanket to be able to walk under sun light.
The blanket, if not prevent him to burst out
on flames, delays it a little (Pangs,
Shadow, I Was Made to Love You, Gone etc).
The Car - The car Spike used to
drive was a 1958 [Dodge
DeSoto Fireflite]. He crashed through the
"Welcome to Sunnydale" sign with the Desoto (School Hard and
Lover's Walk) twice
already, every time getting out and saying "home
sweet home". We don't know what happened to the
car; after Bargaining 2, Spike
used to ride a bike, which he had taken from one
of the Hellions.
The Last Bite - The last person
Spike — willingly — fed off was a dead girl in
the Bronze. He was with Drusilla, who killed a
young couple and gave the girl to chipped Spike
(Crush). He tried to bite a live
woman later (Smashed), when he
thought his chip wasn't working — he kind of had
to convince himself to do it — but he didn't
succeed anyway, because the chip actually didn't
have any problem.
He fed off a
dozen people (men, women and Andrew) when,
already soulled, he was under the First Evil's
control (Conversations With Dead People,
Sleeper, Never Leave Me).
He didn't know what he was doing, and when he
found out, got very shocked and wanted Buffy
to kill him.
Spike, out of free will, bit Robin Wood just
to scare the hell out of him — the Principal
had just tried to kill the soulled vampire (Lies
My Parents Told Me). However, the
next day, Wood didn't have any visible bite
mark in his neck. So, either it was just a
make-up mistake, or Spike didn't bite him, at
The Welcome Sign - Twice Spike
crashed through the 'Welcome to Sunnydale' sign,
with his 1958 Dodge Desoto FireFlite, when
returning to town (School Hard and
Lovers Walk). The third time — and
last — Spike knocked the sign down was when
Sunnydale collapsed, after he had, heroically,
closed the Hellmouth once for all (Chosen).
The Paintings - Would those
paintings on the wall we saw in Lurky's African
cave mean (Villains)? Fans noticed
that and published on the Internet the following
It seems we
got the answer on season 7 episode Selfless,
when [D'Hoffryn] told Willow
that "the flaying of Warren Mears was truly
inspired, water cooler vengeance, and Lloyd
has a sketch of it on his wall."
