Buffy the Vampire Slayer may have been home to all manner of evil and surreal mythology, but the true power of the show came from its characters, and the way they balanced their fight against the supernatural underground with their personal lives in high school and beyond.
Throughout the show's seven season run, there were numerous romances between the characters, most of which played an intricate part in the overall story of that particular season and helped develop those involved in usually compelling ways.
Whether it was a forbidden romance between a Slayer and vampire with a soul, an ill-fated high school affair or a sadistic partnership between two villainous demons, Buffy was rife with major love stories, and rarely if ever dropped the ball when telling them.
With that in mind, here is every major relationship from Buffy the Vampire Slayer ranked worst to best. This article contains major spoilers.
14. Buffy & Scott
Buffy's brief and ultimately directionless relationship with Scott Hope was only really in place to highlight how great Buffy and Angel had been together, and to emphasise how the Slayer simply wasn't made to date "normal" guys.
There could have been some kind of emotional poignancy with the pairing, allowing Buffy to have a relationship with a lot less danger, but between their rushed break-up and the fact that Scott himself was as dull as dishwater, it just never worked.
A wasted pairing they may have been, but Buffy and Scott's relationship is not one that fans missed...or even remembered once it was done.
