Winner of Best Original Character in Blood Ties Awards Round 4. I’ve always been fascinated by Spike’s remarks about his cousin in Goodbye Iowa. This is set just before Christmas and so before Buffy’s birthday party in Older and Far Away. Spike has a big favour to ask the Slayer and it will lead to all sorts of jealousy when she meets a certain member of his family.
