Oh, good lord. I had thought this was perfectly obvious, but I guess
there are some people who didn't get it. When Eve says they threw the
universe out of whack, she meant that they did it by giving Spike his
body back. It was a direct consequence of something they did.

Right. It was a con job, even though Eve specifically stated that they
"threw the universe out of whack." It was such a good con job they
apparently even fooled themselves!
Sheesh, the lengths people will go to to ignore facts that go against
their preconceived views never ceases to amaze me.
