Spike acted like a selfish child. He wasn’t being “badass” or “cool” he was being a hopeless romantic that wasn’t living in the sane world anymore. Chasing after his suicidal ex who gets herself killed only to end up biting collateral is ridiculous and makes him come off as the anime version of Forest Gump. All of this is further insulting when he tells Faye to move on and not chase the past, it’s so fucking hypocritical. “Do as I say, not as I do” appears to be his motto here.
That’s a loser worse than Forest Gump because at least Forest was retarded and didn’t contradict himself.
