But you can't do 5 more seasons, put Spuffy together, made them break-up and then give again hope to the Bangel/Spuffy even Fuffy fans... What the show needed is a definitive closure on that subject !
I think Bangel sounds hopeful enough at the end of this- although Angel is still a cursed vampire so he and Buffy still can't eat cookies together- but Spuffy seems well and truly done with.
After all Buffy and Spike just broke up 'off-screen' when there no external factors/pressures to keep them together. That means it was never going to work, at any point, because there was never the potential for a happy ending; canon has now basically stated that they just didn't work as a couple and never would long-term. They may even have loved each other by S11 but clearly there wasn't enough anything else there to sustain them.
I would feel a bit bad but hell, it seems that Spuffy got the vast majority of the fan-service in the comics so I think that's about enough.
