So, the worst episode of the season sandwiched between two of the best episodes.
It's hard for me to say precisely why I dislike this episode so much. It's very cathartic–a "nobody loves me" type story. Twilight doesn't say it directly, but alludes to it when she says "this is not the Spike I know and love." Of course, as adults we know what she means; but that's not how Spike takes it, and that's really the important thing from a psychological point of view.
There's a reconciliation at the end, but it's just not satisfying for me. Twilight reassures Spike that she would never replace him, but there is no acknowledgment of hurt feelings, which is what the whole mess is all about.
