I also love Xander's speech from The Freshman That's when I honestly thought they would explore the Buffy/Xander romance, in Season 4. Two lost souls finally coming together. But nope! They went with Anya and Riley.

Love that we got her saying that, it had been true for a long time so it was nice to see it acknowledged

Xander was always the most human of the whole group. I feel as if Buffy was acknowledging this fact in her speech... Xander didn't need special powers. He was simply special on his own, helping her out.

True & I think his influence had a lot to do with keeping Buffy more grounded & stopped her from becoming just a slayer.

Yes Even Willow ended up turning bad for a while and losing her faith in humanity when Tara died, yet Xander was always the reliable one who stayed around to help his friends.


Even in Graduation Day, when Anya selfishly begs him to leave with her, he tells her straight - NO. My friends need me.

According to Nicholas Brendon, it was close to becoming a reality in Season 7 (he and Sarah straight-up asked Joss to make B/X romance happen)


I think it would happened in Season 2, if fans hadn't become so invested in the idea of her being with a dark, brooding vampire

I shipped them like crazy together for at least the first 5 seasons, so I would've supported a B/X romance


Never liked him with Anya, always felt as if she was a carbon-copy of Cordelia.


Plus, it's interesting that one of Anya's lines in the Musical episode was ~

Quote:
"When things get rough he just hides behind his Buffy, now look - he's getting huffy, 'cause he knows that I know."

The jealousy in this quote is undeniable.

I think that the writers were definitely building up to it in s2, especially as the original plan was to kill Angel off for good. Then after a spin-off was proposed & they realized that Angel was gonna have to come back from the dead, they focused on bangel
