Stop Me

An exchange from Buffy vs. Dracula:

Buffy: Stay away from me.
Dracula: Are you afraid I will bite you? Slayer, that's why you came.
Buffy: No. Last night ... it's not gonna happen again.
Dracula: Stop me. Stake me.
Buffy: I...Any minute now.

“Stop me.” Shades of Buffy/Spike?

A Buffy/Spike shipper who had more sympathy for Spike in S6 once suggested, discussing Wrecked, that maybe people thought Spike had power by his sexiness, and mocked the idea. But as I have discussed before, it's not sexiness. It's shame.

Something interesting that I've never seen anyone comment on: In Beneath You, when Spike starts taunting Buffy, goes into vamp face, claims he hasn’t changed, he references the balcony. Seeing Red isn’t as awful as Dead Things, for me, because while Spike tries to overpower Buffy physically in SR, he is not playing on her shame. He’s not using her self-loathing.
