In order to make this work, I had to lengthen the time between Joyce being released from the hospital and the time Buffy finds out about Riley's trips to the bite shop.  Just assume that it took a couple days for Spike to finally approach Buffy after he discovered Riley's activities and it fits better.  Sorry that I had to tweak the timeline just a bit but if I didn't Buffy would have been in the beginnings of death spiral for the start instead of just skirting the edge of disaster.
