I have watched 'as you were' again and tbh it bugged me. It made no sense and seemed to have raised more questions than answers.
Spike is supposed to be 'The doctor' a powerful international weapons (?) dealer for terrorists (or something like that) who harboured demonic eggs. Now we only know that Spike had the eggs downstairs in his cave, not that he was actually the doctor.At it's worst it shows that Spike is a shady guy in shady buisness and could well be holding the eggs for a 'friend'. Not that he is the doctor.
1. one of the main reason I had problems in believing he was the doctor is that he had no phone...and there is no powerful international dealer in the world without a phone! And he sure as hell aint making long distance phone calls from a pay phone.
2.Spike is very much reviled/hated/disrespected in the demon world. With the exception of Clem and maybe 1 or 2 demons, he has very little friends.
3. The name 'The Doctor'.. why would he name himself this? Didn't The Doc push him off the scaffolding, bleed Dawn- Incidents that resulted in Buffy's death.
4. The demons are extremly dangerous and can wipe out the whole of Sunnydale- why was he sitting calmly on his bed reading a book...More importantly why weren't the eggs frozen? isn't this how The Docter is supposedly reported to have been storing them? Instead the eggs are sitting happily down stairs waiting to hatch.
4.11: Why would he WANT to wipe out sunnydale?
5. Why was there no follow up- Spike in trouble- in debt over the destroyed eggs?
