* The entirety of Buffy and Spike's relationship. Finally, when Buffy is at her lowest--when she is traumatized, depressed, isolated from her friends, and doesn't have [[ParentalSubstitute Giles]] there to protect her--Spike sees an opening for him to swoop in and [[DomesticAbuser use Buffy's aforementioned trauma and mental illness]] to coerce her into starting up a sexual relationship with him. He knows that she would only ever consider being with him when she is at her lowest point, so he does everything he can to [[{{Gaslighting}} convince her]] that she CameBackWrong and thus can only find solace in him. On a meta level. And poor Buffy is too mentally beaten down to stop him. It's especially disheartening to hear that Sarah Michelle Gellar found Buffy's relationship with Spike to be degrading.

** From the same episode, Buffy is sitting in her room with a very large stake and garlic hanging from the windows to ward off Spike, but he had already put his poison in her and from now on, she'll come to him. Seeing how much Buffy hates herself for allowing Spike to abuse her is gut-wrenching.

* YourMilageMayVary '''''hard''''' based on how you view Buffy and [[BastardBoyfriend Spike's]] relationship in season 6, but the scene in "Dead Things" where a grimacing, tearful Buffy watches her friends have fun from the shadows as Spike [[QuestionableConsent begins to]] [[DateRape initiate sex with her]] all while [[BreakingSpeech whispering in her ear about how she knows she doesn't belong in her friend's world anymore, that she belongs in the darkness with him]] is hard to watch for many fans. Seeing the normally so strong and unbreakable Buffy so depressed and broken just rips this Troper's heart out.

* The end of "Empty Places" where everyone gangs up on Buffy and decide to kick her out of her own home. Made all the worse by the fact that '''''none of them even bother to apologize to her''''', even after Buffy's proven right, comes back and saves the day after Faith and the Potentials' plan quite literally blows up in their faces.

* The Mayor standing over Faith's bed in "Graduation Day, Part 2." While he may be the season's Big Bad and is planning on the destruction of the entire town and hundreds if not thousands of innocent people, watching the Mayor look over Faith, being told she'll likely never wake up, is heart-wrentching. It's clear with this scene that the Mayor clearly loved Faith like a daughter, and wanted to share his victory with her. It's also telling that this act is the one thing that actually makes the Mayor lose his cool for the first time in the entire season, and endangers his entire plan- the one that he has spent hundreds of years building towards- just to take revenge upon Buffy.

* When Faith and Buffy switch bodies and Faith (in Buffy's body) is beating up Buffy (in Faith's body). It's clear that Faith is screaming and beating up herself and not Buffy. The desperation, despair and hatred for herself is heartbreaking.
