Giles was holding himself still, posture suggesting caution and an attempt to appear unthreatening. "Buffy, I think we may need to let this issue go for now. As long as Spike isn't being harmed, our efforts to free him are likely to be taken poorly. We're needlessly antagonizing them." At them he gave a subtle turn of his head to indicate the soldiers.
"Giles, they put a collar on him. He can't speak or fight--we don't know what Braveheart in there's going to do to him."
"He probably just wants some pretty man to pour his wine and give him blow-jobs," Anya said matter of factly. The men's faces turned queasy. Giles shifted his gaze down and cleared his throat while Riley blinked several times, opened his mouth, then closed it again.
Xander took a deep, uncomfortable-looking breath before saying, "Well, it's not as if Spike doesn't have some karmic payback coming."
Willow frowned unhappily at him for this remark. "Xander. We're talking about rape."
"Oh for god's sake, he's a vampire," Anya said. "He's done everything under the sun, except, of course, not under the sun. He's probably been buggered six ways from Sunday."
"Anya does have a...colorfully expressed point." Giles glanced at Buffy. "What might traumatize a human is unlikely to stir more than annoyance in a vampire. In fact, given Spike's tendency to manipulate circumstances to his advantage, he may be better situated than ourselves."
