Angel. The fifth-season opener, scripted by Joss Whedon, will introduce a young Wolfram & Hart liaison named Eve, who will explain in smirky detail why it behooves Team Angel to use the L.A. branch rather than trash it from the inside. Eve will also explain that Lilah won’t be a big presence this season, as keeping dead people on the earthly plane is pricey! Speaking of which, James Marsters insists in interviews that Spike won’t "pull a Darla" and return as a human. The prevailing rumor these days is that William the Bloody will "pull a Dennis" instead, and reappear as a ghost. (The same rumors suggest that the Spike-as-spirit idea was going to be a component of the "Faith on a motorcyle" spinoff, had it gone forward.) In any case, a non-corporeal Spike might certainly find his new status impeding his ability to date a certain newly-homeless vampire slayer.
