I will never apologize for this increasingly becoming my favourite scene ever in the show.
To this point in the show, Angelus is probably the villain that has cuased the most fear in Xander. This is the villain that has been most destructive to the people whom Xander loves the most and to whom he is most loyal. And Xander has proven certain amounts of bravery to this point, but nothing that comes remotely close to this. And he keeps his composure, while being more scared than he’s ever been.
4 for you, Xander. You go , Xander!
Seriously though, I never actually realised how amazingly brave and powerful this scene was until I read this post. AWESOME.
