A term superhero is usually associated with righteousness and certain tropes of pop-culture.

Very few people that I know refer to Watchment characters as "superheroes" and more as "vigilantes".

I do know that at the very essence , superhero pretty much means a superhuman protagonist, but for me personally there's just too much popculture influence in that term to limit far more complex characters than Spike and Buffy to.

Having experienced it, yes I do understand what torture and abuse is.

What Buffy did is equal to telling a suicidal person that he does not deserve to live. Its very similar to the tactics Angelus used in Season two of btvs.

Or the fact that Buffy never locked spike out till the obsession arc of S5.

Or the fact that both of them had some quite....*cough* "intense" *cough* interactions in S4.

All of Buffy's relationships have been proportionately dysfunctional, its not a big logical leap to assume something like Spike/Buffy would happen considering her attraction to the "dark side".

I actually happened to experience BOTH sides of situation, both Buffy's and Spike's viewpoints, just with far less TV-romanticized approach to it.

Being able to relate to both characters as both different facets of abusive relationship is...weird. Season Six and all of this is something that got me through the times when I continuously asked for "something to sing about".

Especially considering the whole emotions angle, Buffy DOES know that about Spike from everything in Season Five. The way she takes the wording in that scene this episode is intentionally hurtful towards him. She is exerting a form of mental torture in order to feel better about herself and Spike does the same. Excusing either of them would be just...wrong.

Two very attractive people with a lot of chemistry having a destructive rough sex with a wonderful cinematography of falling building, camera angles and cracks inthe wall as metaphor for their psyche.

The context might not be hot, but the scene itself is.
