I guess it depends on how much one requires a consistent universe. Although I understand what you mean when you refer to "suspension of belief", I have a hard time being serious about this as I don't believe in vampires, demons, magic etc so I have to completely obliterate belief, not merely suspend it. Given that, I don't require a physical consistency (whether Spike should be able to detect the real Buffy) but I do require an emotional consistency. In this scene, I think both Spike and Buffy are acting in a way that was keeping in their characters. That is important to me and is really only what matters. I think everyone has their own position on this issue. I loved S7 but I seem to be in a minority. I have always thought that a viewers take on S7 had a lot to do with how much they were interested in Spike's journey, particularly where it intersected Buffy's journey. I found it emotionally resonant (but not without some flaws but I think every season had some flaws). Anyway, Joss has stated a number of times that when it came between consistency and the emotion he wanted to portray,he always went for the emotion. I agree with him but again that is a matter of personal taste.
