ITA with this Lola....Plus, for me, Spike's glory in violence was really about his own inner rage. He wasn't *really* enjoying all the blood and gore and destruction...he was smart enough and human enough as a vamp to say, 'This (vampirism) is what defines me, I've got to embrace it." while really still having a tiny piece of that sweet nerdy William still inside. (Despite what Buffy and Giles think-that the vamp has NO shared identity with the victim.)
John, however, really does seem to be living beyond *human* morality. He might be what we call a good guy at times (rescuing that dude in the beginning) but he also has no qualms about extreme violence to reach a goal. Instead of reveling in the violence, he seemed more matter o' fact about it....except with the meeting with Jack, where the violence kinda rolled into the sex and heat and the emotion. John might be *moral* but based on a very non-human understanding of that word.
I had a heart-thud when John asked to join the team....sure hope John is a recurring character and JM can work him in.
I'm speculating that Grey is Jack's child. Looked like a child's hand being held in that dreamy sequence.
Gotta watch again!
Looked like a child to me too. But whether or not Grey is Jack's child is a good question. And, is Grey still a child, or is this an old memory?
