Love that phrase "of course". Can't let him think it's okay to have doubts or insecurities.
Oh. Is that sarcasm?
Little bit. But it's also a nice way to show that Twilight's still a long way from a perfect parent, and Spike loves her anyway. (Not sure why you asked that if you were going to close the comments so I couldn't reply.)

Indeed, I did that. I was in a rather bad mood.

The emotion and dialogue here is so moving.  We see the love and devotion both Twilight and Spike hold for one another.  It's such a magnificent, heartfelt scene.

Excellent job keeping the real scenes from the show in the gems, even while they're scattered along the floor like that.

Spike's silhouette in the sixth panel may be my favorite.  The way those tears form, outlining his eyes perfectly, is excellent.

Everypony makes mistakes. But Sombra is a big boy, and he can take all the blame just fine on his own.

I don't see why Spike ever doubted Twilight caring about him.

Did the 70± pages of the story not explain it? ;)

I do get he was confused about what exactly his relationship should be but that Twilight cares about him never seemed to be in doubt. It is more rather he could consider him her son. However even if she does not consider herself his mother that doesn't mean she doesn't care about him.

Yet this is exactly what Sombra did with Spike. He took his doubts regarding his relationship with Twilight,slowly  changed the narration and made Spike believe she didn't care. Having a direct access to Spike's mind and manipulating his dragon greed was why he (almost) succeeded.

Here is the first time Spike starts to "hear" it:

This is brought up again:

Here is when Spike starts to believe it:

And here is where the confusion reaches its peak:

I think if this was an actual mlp  episode twilight would sing something about love and how it's never too late "amending fences"

but this is a comic so this should do

Is it just me, or does Spike look younger in the second-to-last pannel?

I love this panel. Twilight's face on the third frame is so sincere and loving and worried. This is exactly why I love Twilight and Spike. Sorry that I don't have more to say other then there's something about this dialog and these emotions that is just tear jerking. I'm very excited to see how it all ends.
