Televisionary: It's up in the air and its chances depend on whom you ask. James Marsters (Spike) told our own Shawna Malcom, who interviewed Joss Whedon and his cast for the show's last ride, that he'd "love to come back to the character." David Boreanaz, on the other hand, said he doesn't plan on it.
