In Dead Things (Season 6, Episode 13) there’s a scene in which Buffy goes to Spike’s crypt and they can sense each other through the door, but she turns away without actually going in. Then the whole mess with the Trio and Katrina’s dead body happens.

WHAT IF Buffy had actually given in to the urge to see Spike, and while they were occupied the Trio had gotten caught waiting around with a dead body, and were arrested? There would be no Buffy beating up Spike and leaving him in that alley scene, for one thing, but what knock-on effect could this have had for the rest of the season?
