Afterlife picks up where Buffy returns home and now must get used to her life again. I find it creepy how they you with the audience making it seem like Buffy didn't come back right and may be a demon standing over Willow's bed berating her for bringing her back and busting an orb. They turn on the light to find her gone and sleeping in bed. Also i love the look Buffy gives Joyce's picture when she first walks in as if they spend time together and full of love. I find it interesting later on that she lies to her friends that she was in hell to spare them from ripping her out of it yet confesses to Spike that was where she dwelt feeling connected to him and confused on how to live on a world that's moved on.

Another aspect is the care Spike gives Buffy as he tends her wounds and knows she crawled out of her grave. He knows the trauma of death only to come back as a vampire disoriented and confused. In a way they have more in common in this moment then the friends she knew for years becoming her security blanket.
