Ooh ok. Yeah I liked that he was there for her when the other Slayers "turfed her out", so to speak.
Yeah... I know that Buffy wasn't really nice sometimes in season 7 (In fact, she made me a bit angry a few times...) But she only wanted to help the potentials and her friends... They had no right to throw her out of her own house... If they didn't want to be around her, it was them who should have left... Not her... And they never tried to talk to her about her faults... They just decided to throw her out if her own house...

I can't remember, LOL! But yeah, it was good that she had him to back her up.
Oh here we go, yay for transcripts
SPIKE He's a breath of fresh air, isn't he? Thank god I don't breathe. So, I think we got a lead. Where's Buffy?
DAWN Um... (looks away) she's not here right now.
SPIKE When's she get back?
WILLOW (walks toward Spike, wringing her hands, nervously) Uh...while you were gone, we all got together and t-talked out some disagreements that we were having. Um... and eventually, after much discussion, Buffy decided that it would be best for all of us if she took a little time off, a little breather.
SPIKE (stares in disbelief) Uh-huh. I see. Been practicing that little speech long, have you? (Willow looks hurt and walks away) So, uh, Buffy took some time off right in the middle of the apocalypse, and it was her decision?
XANDER Well, we all decided.
SPIKE Oh, yeah. You all decided. (chuckles) You sad, sad, ungrateful traitors. Who do you think you are?
WILLOW We're her friends. We just want—
SPIKE Oh, that's ballsy of you. You're her friends, and you betray her like this?
GILES You don't understand—
SPIKE You know, I think I do... (disdainfully) Rupert. You used to be the big man, didn't you? The teacher all full of wisdom. Now she's surpassed you, and you can't handle it. She has saved your lives again and again. (the others roll their eyes and avoid eye contact with Spike) She's died for you. And this is how you thank—
FAITH Hey. Why don't you take it down a notch or two? The time for speech-giving is over, bat boy.
SPIKE (crosses his arms) Oh, is that right?
FAITH Yeah, that's right. Save your lack of breath.
SPIKE (shrugs) All right. (punches Faith)
FAITH You're pretty sweet on her, aren't you? (kicks Spike in the face) I think it's cute. (Spike punches Faith; she punches him back) They way she's got you whipped. (kicks Spike into the other room where he slides over the dining room table and onto the floor)
Faith goes into the dining room after Spike and starts punching him in the face repeatedly. He kicks her off of him and leaps to his feet.
SPIKE Finally got what you wanted, didn't you? (exchanges punches with Faith) Where is she?
FAITH I don't know.
Spike rolls Faith over his back and flings her into the dining room wall pretty hard. She gets to her feet as does Spike, and they stare at each other for a moment before Spike finally walks out the front door.
SPIKE (standing in the doorway) There you are. Do you realize I could just walk in here, no invite needed? This town really is theirs now, isn't it? (walks up to Buffy) I heard. I was over there. That bitch. (sighs) She's all about smiles and reformation when you're on your feet, but the moment you're down, she's all about the kicking, isn't that right? Makes me want—
BUFFY (softly, staring off into the corner) It wasn't just Faith. It was all of them. (looks at Spike) And it's not like they were wrong. Please leave.
SPIKE No. (excited) This'll change your tune. I came here 'cause I got something to tell you. You were right. Caleb is trying to protect something from you. And I think you were spot on all the way. I think it's at the vineyard. So? You were right. (she still hasn't moved or reacted) Buffy?
BUFFY I don't feel very right.
SPIKE (walks closer to her) You're not fooling me.
BUFFY What do you even mean?
SPIKE Well, you're not a quitter.
BUFFY Watch me.
SPIKE You were their leader, and you still are. This isn't something you gave up, it's something they took.
BUFFY (looks at him) And the difference is?
SPIKE We can take it back.
SPIKE You listen to me. (kneels in front of her) I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls. (looks into her eyes) A 100+ years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. (Buffy looks away; he reaches toward her face) Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you," it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. (a tear rolls down Buffy's cheek) I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.
