There was a line I loved from 'The Blacklist that immediately made me think of Spike. It went something like this; 'Doing good for selfish reasons doesn't make you good, it just makes you good at being selfish.'Up until S7 Spike was by all definitions a VILLAIN. Just because he sometimes did selfish things that turned out to be good for Buffy doesn't change that fact.
I could argue that Spike was fundamentally a selfish creature until well into S7, since all he cared about was gaining Buffy's approval/forgiveness no matter what.
