The Buffyverse Soul Having/Anchoring
Ok, this has been bothering me for sometime so here it is. If Spike is able to fight to earn his soul in the trials then what about Angel. Wouldn't he be able to earn his soul so the curse was still there but if he lost it, it would still be there? Sort of double insurance for soul having.
If there is a way for Cordy to make sure her powers don't leave during comshock (spelling?) and Spike to recieve his soul sans loophole shouldn't there be a way for Angel to anchor it. People move his soul in and out of him fairly often but never lock it down.
I understand that due to being on different networks and to make the show work Angel and Buffy had to be kept apart but now in comic land is this a possibility? Was it mentioned somewhere and I missed it? In I will remember you Angel couldn't stay human because it put Buffy in danger and removed him from the whole good, evil chessboard but having a soul without clauses would be a major victory.
Anybody have any thoughts?
