No, never. Not even as a comic relief, she always annoyed me.
but he still demands sex in exchange for protection
Well, "requests" or "suggests," then. He just hints, but we know as well as Harmony what he is hinting at. She is fine with it, but I think we'd agree that Spike would protect Dru without that. The writers wanted to move Spike's character away from that sense of chivalry, and hinting at being FWB does that, as it is exploitative, even if both partners agree to be exploited.I disagree, or at the very least I think demand is the wrong word. Spike doesn't demand sex in exchange for protection, Harmony is the one that puts out she'd do "anything", Spike then repeats "anything?" as in hint hint without outright saying sex, whilst Harmony comes to that conclusion and happily agrees to the deal.
