    - Into the Woods


    Buffy vs Dracula: In her bedroom, Riley is asleep but Buffy is wide-eyed and restless. She gets up quietly. Outside, she races after a vamp with astonishing speed. The intensity of her pursuit is wild, animal...like a leopard after its prey. As she rises from her kill, she breathes hard, eyes shining. We cut to her climbing back into bed. Unaware of her absence, Riley pulls her close. - 7

    Real Me: In the gym's interior, Buffy's eyes are closed in a Zen-like trance, balancing on her right arm. A card table has a small tower of crystals piled on top. A small hand places another crystal atop it and the tower crashes. Buffy's eyes snap open, she loses balance and collapses. Her "sister" Dawn hovers over her. "Can we go now?" - 5

    Out of My Mind: In the graveyard, Spike watches Buffy and Riley move out of sight, eyes narrowed menacingly. "I will know your blood, Slayer. I will make your neck my chalice and drink deep." With a petulant toss of his head and a flash of overcoat, he walks deeper into the cemetery. But his elegant exit is thwarted as he missteps and falls into an empty grave. - 6

    Family: Buffy and Giles in her living room converse about Glory: "Yes. We have to find out who exactly this woman is, and what it is she needs Dawn for. If she comes after you—" Buffy- "She'll come. She'll come for us." In a factory at night, Glory comes bursting out of a pile of rubble, breathing hard, covered in dust. "Okay. Now I'm upset." - 4

    Fool for Love: In a graveyard at night, Buffy is fighting with a regular vamp, when he sidesteps her stake, grabs her arm, twists, and suddenly brings down her own stake against her, held in her own hand. Shocked, she sees that she's been impaled through the side, under the ribs. - 7

    Listening to Fear: In an abandoned tenement at night, we see a filthy room with graffiti coloured walls. In the foreground Riley is sprawled on a stained bare mattress. A "vampire chick" in ratty pants and a bra has her fangs imbedded in his arm. A few dollar bills are strewn on a table. She drinks from him. - 5

    Into the Woods: In the waiting room at the hospital, Buffy, Riley and the Scoobies spy the doctor coming down the hall in his scrubs. She shakes Dawn awake. The others - Riley, Giles, Willow and Xander - stand as the doctor nears. Full of fear and anticipation. - 3

    Crush: At the Sunnydale train station, a bored porter turns his attention to an approaching train. He waits for the passengers, but none appear. He steps onto the train, scanning the dimly-lit interior and freezes as he sees dead bodies strewn about. He bolts for the exit. Almost makes it out the door onto the platform when..."Help me! Please! Help m--!!" ...he's violently dragged back into the train. - 5

    The Body: Buffy enters her house, dropping her coat, calls for her mom, reads the card near the bouquet by the door. Nearing the stairs she calls again, turns. Sees her mother sprawled on the couch. "Oh! Mom. What are you doing?" She stops. "Mom?" Joyce is unmoving, eyes wide, her skin pale and bluish. Buffy stands, rooted, as realisation dawns. "Mom?" Her voice is small. "Mommy?" - 7

    Forever: Buffy is looking at coffins with Dawn as the funeral director tells them "If you'd like a few more minutes to decide-" Buffy: "No. It's fine. It's done. Okay?" Dawn nods and Buffy moves off, retreating into her own space. Giles lays a reassuring hand on Dawn's back before heading after Buffy. But Dawn barely registers, looking at the coffins, stung by Buffy's brusqueness. - 5

    Intervention: In Warren's house, Spike is staring at the Buffybot he had commissioned. Without taking his eyes off her, he grabs Warren by the collar. "Wait. I'm not sure I'm a satisfied customer. She looks a little shiny to me. You know, a touch of plasticine…" Suddenly, Buffybot's eyes open. "Spike! Oh, Spike!" She grabs him by the shoulders and pulls him to her in a steamy kiss. Spike says simply: "She'll do." - 5

    Tough Love: In the hospital's locker room, Ben is muttering in fury. "You're taking everything away from me. Everything that I worked for. I earned. I care about. These are my choices. This is my life, and you're ruining it." Something dangerous inside him rumbles, and he's scared, pitiful. "No...no...not here...not now. I'm Ben. I'm Ben. I'm Ben!" He bangs his fist against the locker door but it morphs, the nails red. Glory dusts herself off, smoothing her hair. "I'm hungry." - 5

    The Weight of the World: In the abandoned gas station, Spike enters from outside. "The Slayer'll be all right. Won't she?" No answer from anyone. Xander urges Willow to try again. "Okay but I'm not sure if she's, you know, really in there." We cut to Buffy, who stares off into space, deaf and blind to the world around her. "Buffy? Can you hear me? Buffy? Buffy?" But Buffy can hear none of it... - 6

    The Gift: A boy is trapped in an alley, speechless with fear. A male vampire approaches. Buffy appears, addressing him fearlessly. "Have you ever heard the expression, "biting off more than you can chew?" The vamp attacks but she sidesteps, brings her foot hard into his knee, cracking it. "Oh God, my leg!" "See? now we're communicating." She catches a piece of wood as it flies from splintered boxes, slams it home, he dusts. "Been a long while since I met one didn't know me." Teen: "But - you're just a girl..." Buffy stops, looks back.. "That's what I keep saying." - 6

        You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

            The Weight of the World: In the abandoned gas station, Spike enters from outside. "The Slayer'll be all right. Won't she?" No answer from anyone. Xander urges Willow to try again. "Okay but I'm not sure if she's, you know, really in there." We cut to Buffy, who stares off into space, deaf and blind to the world around her. "Buffy? Can you hear me? Buffy? Buffy?" But Buffy can hear none of it... - 6

            The Gift: A boy is trapped in an alley, speechless with fear. A male vampire approaches. Buffy appears, addressing him fearlessly. "Have you ever heard the expression, "biting off more than you can chew?" The vamp attacks but she sidesteps, brings her foot hard into his knee, cracking it. "Oh God, my leg!" "See? now we're communicating." She catches a piece of wood as it flies from splintered boxes, slams it home, he dusts. "Been a long while since I met one didn't know me." Teen: "But - you're just a girl..." Buffy stops, looks back.. "That's what I keep saying." - 7

            • four days gone—


              + The Weight of the World
              - Crush


              Buffy vs Dracula: In her bedroom, Riley is asleep but Buffy is wide-eyed and restless. She gets up quietly. Outside, she races after a vamp with astonishing speed. The intensity of her pursuit is wild, animal...like a leopard after its prey. As she rises from her kill, she breathes hard, eyes shining. We cut to her climbing back into bed. Unaware of her absence, Riley pulls her close. - 7

              Real Me: In the gym's interior, Buffy's eyes are closed in a Zen-like trance, balancing on her right arm. A card table has a small tower of crystals piled on top. A small hand places another crystal atop it and the tower crashes. Buffy's eyes snap open, she loses balance and collapses. Her "sister" Dawn hovers over her. "Can we go now?" - 6

              Out of My Mind: In the graveyard, Spike watches Buffy and Riley move out of sight, eyes narrowed menacingly. "I will know your blood, Slayer. I will make your neck my chalice and drink deep." With a petulant toss of his head and a flash of overcoat, he walks deeper into the cemetery. But his elegant exit is thwarted as he missteps and falls into an empty grave. - 6

              Family: Buffy and Giles in her living room converse about Glory: "Yes. We have to find out who exactly this woman is, and what it is she needs Dawn for. If she comes after you—" Buffy- "She'll come. She'll come for us." In a factory at night, Glory comes bursting out of a pile of rubble, breathing hard, covered in dust. "Okay. Now I'm upset." - 5

              Fool for Love: In a graveyard at night, Buffy is fighting with a regular vamp, when he sidesteps her stake, grabs her arm, twists, and suddenly brings down her own stake against her, held in her own hand. Shocked, she sees that she's been impaled through the side, under the ribs. - 7

              Listening to Fear: In an abandoned tenement at night, we see a filthy room with graffiti coloured walls. In the foreground Riley is sprawled on a stained bare mattress. A "vampire chick" in ratty pants and a bra has her fangs imbedded in his arm. A few dollar bills are strewn on a table. She drinks from him. - 5

              Crush: At the Sunnydale train station, a bored porter turns his attention to an approaching train. He waits for the passengers, but none appear. He steps onto the train, scanning the dimly-lit interior and freezes as he sees dead bodies strewn about. He bolts for the exit. Almost makes it out the door onto the platform when..."Help me! Please! Help m--!!" ...he's violently dragged back into the train. - 3

              The Body: Buffy enters her house, dropping her coat, calls for her mom, reads the card near the bouquet by the door. Nearing the stairs she calls again, turns. Sees her mother sprawled on the couch. "Oh! Mom. What are you doing?" She stops. "Mom?" Joyce is unmoving, eyes wide, her skin pale and bluish. Buffy stands, rooted, as realisation dawns. "Mom?" Her voice is small. "Mommy?" - 8

              Forever: Buffy is looking at coffins with Dawn as the funeral director tells them "If you'd like a few more minutes to decide-" Buffy: "No. It's fine. It's done. Okay?" Dawn nods and Buffy moves off, retreating into her own space. Giles lays a reassuring hand on Dawn's back before heading after Buffy. But Dawn barely registers, looking at the coffins, stung by Buffy's brusqueness. - 5

              Intervention: In Warren's house, Spike is staring at the Buffybot he had commissioned. Without taking his eyes off her, he grabs Warren by the collar. "Wait. I'm not sure I'm a satisfied customer. She looks a little shiny to me. You know, a touch of plasticine…" Suddenly, Buffybot's eyes open. "Spike! Oh, Spike!" She grabs him by the shoulders and pulls him to her in a steamy kiss. Spike says simply: "She'll do." - 5

              Tough Love: In the hospital's locker room, Ben is muttering in fury. "You're taking everything away from me. Everything that I worked for. I earned. I care about. These are my choices. This is my life, and you're ruining it." Something dangerous inside him rumbles, and he's scared, pitiful. "No...no...not here...not now. I'm Ben. I'm Ben. I'm Ben!" He bangs his fist against the locker door but it morphs, the nails red. Glory dusts herself off, smoothing her hair. "I'm hungry." - 5

                  You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

                    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

                    Buffy vs Dracula: In her bedroom, Riley is asleep but Buffy is wide-eyed and restless. She gets up quietly. Outside, she races after a vamp with astonishing speed. The intensity of her pursuit is wild, animal...like a leopard after its prey. As she rises from her kill, she breathes hard, eyes shining. We cut to her climbing back into bed. Unaware of her absence, Riley pulls her close. - 7

                    Real Me: In the gym's interior, Buffy's eyes are closed in a Zen-like trance, balancing on her right arm. A card table has a small tower of crystals piled on top. A small hand places another crystal atop it and the tower crashes. Buffy's eyes snap open, she loses balance and collapses. Her "sister" Dawn hovers over her. "Can we go now?" - 6

                    Out of My Mind: In the graveyard, Spike watches Buffy and Riley move out of sight, eyes narrowed menacingly. "I will know your blood, Slayer. I will make your neck my chalice and drink deep." With a petulant toss of his head and a flash of overcoat, he walks deeper into the cemetery. But his elegant exit is thwarted as he missteps and falls into an empty grave. - 6

                    Family: Buffy and Giles in her living room converse about Glory: "Yes. We have to find out who exactly this woman is, and what it is she needs Dawn for. If she comes after you—" Buffy- "She'll come. She'll come for us." In a factory at night, Glory comes bursting out of a pile of rubble, breathing hard, covered in dust. "Okay. Now I'm upset." - 5

                    Fool for Love: In a graveyard at night, Buffy is fighting with a regular vamp, when he sidesteps her stake, grabs her arm, twists, and suddenly brings down her own stake against her, held in her own hand. Shocked, she sees that she's been impaled through the side, under the ribs. - 7

                    Listening to Fear: In an abandoned tenement at night, we see a filthy room with graffiti coloured walls. In the foreground Riley is sprawled on a stained bare mattress. A "vampire chick" in ratty pants and a bra has her fangs imbedded in his arm. A few dollar bills are strewn on a table. She drinks from him. - 5

                    The Body: Buffy enters her house, dropping her coat, calls for her mom, reads the card near the bouquet by the door. Nearing the stairs she calls again, turns. Sees her mother sprawled on the couch. "Oh! Mom. What are you doing?" She stops. "Mom?" Joyce is unmoving, eyes wide, her skin pale and bluish. Buffy stands, rooted, as realisation dawns. "Mom?" Her voice is small. "Mommy?" - 10

                    Forever: Buffy is looking at coffins with Dawn as the funeral director tells them "If you'd like a few more minutes to decide-" Buffy: "No. It's fine. It's done. Okay?" Dawn nods and Buffy moves off, retreating into her own space. Giles lays a reassuring hand on Dawn's back before heading after Buffy.

These are my choices. This is my life, and you're ruining it." Something dangerous inside him rumbles, and he's scared, pitiful. "No...no...not here...not now. I'm Ben. I'm Ben. I'm Ben!" He bangs his fist against the locker door but it morphs, the nails red. Glory dusts herself off, smoothing her hair. "I'm hungry." - 4

                    The Weight of the World: In the abandoned gas station, Spike enters from outside. "The Slayer'll be all right. Won't she?" No answer from anyone. Xander urges Willow to try again. "Okay but I'm not sure if she's, you know, really in there." We cut to Buffy, who stares off into space, deaf and blind to the world around her. "Buffy? Can you hear me? Buffy? Buffy?" But Buffy can hear none of it... - 8

                    The Gift: A boy is trapped in an alley, speechless with fear. A male vampire approaches. Buffy appears, addressing him fearlessly. "Have you ever heard the expression, "biting off more than you can chew?" The vamp attacks but she sidesteps, brings her foot hard into his knee, cracking it. "Oh God, my leg!" "See? now we're communicating." She catches a piece of wood as it flies from splintered boxes, slams it home, he dusts. "Been a long while since I met one didn't know me." Teen: "But - you're just a girl..." Buffy stops, looks back.. "That's what I keep saying." - 8

                          Sorry. I'm just busy and when you're expecting it to pop back up in your notifications to remind you, it's easy for a handful of days to slide.

The intensity of her pursuit is wild, animal...like a leopard after its prey. As she rises from her kill, she breathes hard, eyes shining. We cut to her climbing back into bed.

A small hand places another crystal atop it and the tower crashes. Buffy's eyes snap open, she loses balance and collapses. Her "sister" Dawn hovers over her. "Can we go now?" - 6

I will make your neck my chalice and drink deep." With a petulant toss of his head and a flash of overcoat, he walks deeper into the cemetery. But his elegant exit is thwarted as he missteps and falls into an empty grave. - 6

If she comes after you—" Buffy- "She'll come. She'll come for us." In a factory at night, Glory comes bursting out of a pile of rubble, breathing hard, covered in dust. "Okay. Now I'm upset." - 3

                          Fool for Love: In a graveyard at night, Buffy is fighting with a regular vamp, when he sidesteps her stake, grabs her arm, twists, and suddenly brings down her own stake against her, held in her own hand. Shocked, she sees that she's been impaled through the side, under the ribs. - 9

Dawn nods and Buffy moves off, retreating into her own space. Giles lays a reassuring hand on Dawn's back before heading after Buffy. But Dawn barely registers, looking at the coffins, stung by Buffy's brusqueness. - 5

I'm not sure I'm a satisfied customer. She looks a little shiny to me. You know, a touch of plasticine…" Suddenly, Buffybot's eyes open. "Spike! Oh, Spike!" She grabs him by the shoulders and pulls him to her in a steamy kiss. Spike says simply: "She'll do." - 5

He bangs his fist against the locker door but it morphs, the nails red. Glory dusts herself off, smoothing her hair. "I'm hungry." - 3

Xander urges Willow to try again. "Okay but I'm not sure if she's, you know, really in there." We cut to Buffy, who stares off into space, deaf and blind to the world around her. "Buffy? Can you hear me? Buffy? Buffy?" But Buffy can hear none of it... - 8

"Have you ever heard the expression, "biting off more than you can chew?" The vamp attacks but she sidesteps, brings her foot hard into his knee, cracking it. "Oh God, my leg!" "See? now we're communicating." She catches a piece of wood as it flies from splintered boxes, slams it home, he dusts. "Been a long while since I met one didn't know me."

                          • My apologies, as well—

                            I have barely been able to be here
                            at all for the last few days....


                            Not that it is my favorite, but i like Family:
                            Buffy's dark certainty in "She'll come. She'll
                            come after us."—

                            At least more than Touched and a few others....

                            Buffy vs Dracula: In her bedroom, Riley is asleep but Buffy is wide-eyed and restless. She gets up quietly. Outside, she races after a vamp with astonishing speed. The intensity of her pursuit is wild, animal...like a leopard after its prey. As she rises from her kill, she breathes hard, eyes shining. We cut to her climbing back into bed. Unaware of her absence, Riley pulls her close. - 7

                            Real Me: In the gym's interior, Buffy's eyes are closed in a Zen-like trance, balancing on her right arm. A card table has a small tower of crystals piled on top. A small hand places another crystal atop it and the tower crashes. Buffy's eyes snap open, she loses balance and collapses. Her "sister" Dawn hovers over her. "Can we go now?" - 6

                            Out of My Mind: In the graveyard, Spike watches Buffy and Riley move out of sight, eyes narrowed menacingly. "I will know your blood, Slayer. I will make your neck my chalice and drink deep." With a petulant toss of his head and a flash of overcoat, he walks deeper into the cemetery. But his elegant exit is thwarted as he missteps and falls into an empty grave. - 6

                            Family: Buffy and Giles in her living room converse about Glory: "Yes. We have to find out who exactly this woman is, and what it is she needs Dawn for. If she comes after you—" Buffy- "She'll come. She'll come for us." In a factory at night, Glory comes bursting out of a pile of rubble, breathing hard, covered in dust. "Okay. Now I'm upset." - 4

                            Fool for Love: In a graveyard at night, Buffy is fighting with a regular vamp, when he sidesteps her stake, grabs her arm, twists, and suddenly brings down her own stake against her, held in her own hand. Shocked, she sees that she's been impaled through the side, under the ribs. - 9

                            Listening to Fear: In an abandoned tenement at night, we see a filthy room with graffiti coloured walls. In the foreground Riley is sprawled on a stained bare mattress. A "vampire chick" in ratty pants and a bra has her fangs imbedded in his arm. A few dollar bills are strewn on a table. She drinks from him. - 5

                            The Body: Buffy enters her house, dropping her coat, calls for her mom, reads the card near the bouquet by the door. Nearing the stairs she calls again, turns. Sees her mother sprawled on the couch. "Oh! Mom. What are you doing?" She stops. "Mom?" Joyce is unmoving, eyes wide, her skin pale and bluish. Buffy stands, rooted, as realisation dawns. "Mom?" Her voice is small. "Mommy?" - 10

                            Forever: Buffy is looking at coffins with Dawn as the funeral director tells them "If you'd like a few more minutes to decide-" Buffy: "No. It's fine. It's done. Okay?" Dawn nods and Buffy moves off, retreating into her own space. Giles lays a reassuring hand on Dawn's back before heading after Buffy. But Dawn barely registers, looking at the coffins, stung by Buffy's brusqueness. - 5

                            Intervention: In Warren's house, Spike is staring at the Buffybot he had commissioned. Without taking his eyes off her, he grabs Warren by the collar. "Wait. I'm not sure I'm a satisfied customer. She looks a little shiny to me. You know, a touch of plasticine…" Suddenly, Buffybot's eyes open. "Spike! Oh, Spike!" She grabs him by the shoulders and pulls him to her in a steamy kiss. Spike says simply: "She'll do." - 5

                            You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

                              • It definitely works better if we can get more voters. American Aurora , if the copying/posting element of the game is still somewhat off putting and you fancy just putting in a post now and then to say where you would take a point away and which one you would award a point too, the next poster could always add in your votes.

                                - Intervention
                                + The Gift

                                Buffy vs Dracula: In her bedroom, Riley is asleep but Buffy is wide-eyed and restless. She gets up quietly. Outside, she races after a vamp with astonishing speed. The intensity of her pursuit is wild, animal...like a leopard after its prey. As she rises from her kill, she breathes hard, eyes shining. We cut to her climbing back into bed. Unaware of her absence, Riley pulls her close. - 8

                                Real Me: In the gym's interior, Buffy's eyes are closed in a Zen-like trance, balancing on her right arm. A card table has a small tower of crystals piled on top. A small hand places another crystal atop it and the tower crashes. Buffy's eyes snap open, she loses balance and collapses. Her "sister" Dawn hovers over her. "Can we go now?" - 6

                                Out of My Mind: In the graveyard, Spike watches Buffy and Riley move out of sight, eyes narrowed menacingly. "I will know your blood, Slayer. I will make your neck my chalice and drink deep." With a petulant toss of his head and a flash of overcoat, he walks deeper into the cemetery. But his elegant exit is thwarted as he missteps and falls into an empty grave. - 7

                                Family: Buffy and Giles in her living room converse about Glory: "Yes. We have to find out who exactly this woman is, and what it is she needs Dawn for. If she comes after you—" Buffy- "She'll come. She'll come for us." In a factory at night, Glory comes bursting out of a pile of rubble, breathing hard, covered in dust. "Okay. Now I'm upset." - 4

                                Fool for Love: In a graveyard at night, Buffy is fighting with a regular vamp, when he sidesteps her stake, grabs her arm, twists, and suddenly brings down her own stake against her, held in her own hand. Shocked, she sees that she's been impaled through the side, under the ribs. - 9

                                Listening to Fear: In an abandoned tenement at night, we see a filthy room with graffiti coloured walls. In the foreground Riley is sprawled on a stained bare mattress. A "vampire chick" in ratty pants and a bra has her fangs imbedded in his arm. A few dollar bills are strewn on a table. She drinks from him. - 5

                                The Body: Buffy enters her house, dropping her coat, calls for her mom, reads the card near the bouquet by the door. Nearing the stairs she calls again, turns. Sees her mother sprawled on the couch. "Oh! Mom. What are you doing?" She stops. "Mom?" Joyce is unmoving, eyes wide, her skin pale and bluish. Buffy stands, rooted, as realisation dawns. "Mom?" Her voice is small. "Mommy?" - 10

                                Forever: Buffy is looking at coffins with Dawn as the funeral director tells them "If you'd like a few more minutes to decide-" Buffy: "No. It's fine. It's done. Okay?" Dawn nods and Buffy moves off, retreating into her own space. Giles lays a reassuring hand on Dawn's back before heading after Buffy. But Dawn barely registers, looking at the coffins, stung by Buffy's brusqueness. - 5

                                Intervention: In Warren's house, Spike is staring at the Buffybot he had commissioned. Without taking his eyes off her, he grabs Warren by the collar. "Wait. I'm not sure I'm a satisfied customer. She looks a little shiny to me. You know, a touch of plasticine…" Suddenly, Buffybot's eyes open. "Spike! Oh, Spike!" She grabs him by the shoulders and pulls him to her in a steamy kiss. Spike says simply: "She'll do." - 4

                                The Weight of the World: In the abandoned gas station, Spike enters from outside. "The Slayer'll be all right. Won't she?" No answer from anyone. Xander urges Willow to try again. "Okay but I'm not sure if she's, you know, really in there." We cut to Buffy, who stares off into space, deaf and blind to the world around her. "Buffy? Can you hear me? Buffy? Buffy?" But Buffy can hear none of it... - 8

                                The Gift: A boy is trapped in an alley, speechless with fear. A male vampire approaches. Buffy appears, addressing him fearlessly. "Have you ever heard the expression, "biting off more than you can chew?" The vamp attacks but she sidesteps, brings her foot hard into his knee, cracking it. "Oh God, my leg!" "See? now we're communicating." She catches a piece of wood as it flies from splintered boxes, slams it home, he dusts. "Been a long while since I met one didn't know me." Teen: "But - you're just a girl..." Buffy stops, looks back.. "That's what I keep saying." - 10

                                      Out of My Mind: In the graveyard, Spike watches Buffy and Riley move out of sight, eyes narrowed menacingly. "I will know your blood, Slayer. I will make your neck my chalice and drink deep." With a petulant toss of his head and a flash of overcoat, he walks deeper into the cemetery. But his elegant exit is thwarted as he missteps and falls into an empty grave. - 7

                                      Family: Buffy and Giles in her living room converse about Glory: "Yes. We have to find out who exactly this woman is, and what it is she needs Dawn for. If she comes after you—" Buffy- "She'll come. She'll come for us." In a factory at night, Glory comes bursting out of a pile of rubble, breathing hard, covered in dust. "Okay. Now I'm upset." - 4

                                      Fool for Love: In a graveyard at night, Buffy is fighting with a regular vamp, when he sidesteps her stake, grabs her arm, twists, and suddenly brings down her own stake against her, held in her own hand. Shocked, she sees that she's been impaled through the side, under the ribs. - 9

                                      Listening to Fear: In an abandoned tenement at night, we see a filthy room with graffiti coloured walls. In the foreground Riley is sprawled on a stained bare mattress. A "vampire chick" in ratty pants and a bra has her fangs imbedded in his arm. A few dollar bills are strewn on a table. She drinks from him. - 5

                                      The Body: Buffy enters her house, dropping her coat, calls for her mom, reads the card near the bouquet by the door. Nearing the stairs she calls again, turns. Sees her mother sprawled on the couch. "Oh! Mom. What are you doing?" She stops. "Mom?" Joyce is unmoving, eyes wide, her skin pale and bluish. Buffy stands, rooted, as realisation dawns. "Mom?" Her voice is small. "Mommy?" - 10

                                      Forever: Buffy is looking at coffins with Dawn as the funeral director tells them "If you'd like a few more minutes to decide-" Buffy: "No. It's fine. It's done. Okay?" Dawn nods and Buffy moves off, retreating into her own space. Giles lays a reassuring hand on Dawn's back before heading after Buffy. But Dawn barely registers, looking at the coffins, stung by Buffy's brusqueness. - 5

                                      Intervention: In Warren's house, Spike is staring at the Buffybot he had commissioned. Without taking his eyes off her, he grabs Warren by the collar. "Wait. I'm not sure I'm a satisfied customer. She looks a little shiny to me. You know, a touch of plasticine…" Suddenly, Buffybot's eyes open. "Spike! Oh, Spike!" She grabs him by the shoulders and pulls him to her in a steamy kiss. Spike says simply: "She'll do." - 1

                                      The Weight of the World: In the abandoned gas station, Spike enters from outside. "The Slayer'll be all right. Won't she?" No answer from anyone. Xander urges Willow to try again. "Okay but I'm not sure if she's, you know, really in there." We cut to Buffy, who stares off into space, deaf and blind to the world around her. "Buffy? Can you hear me? Buffy? Buffy?" But Buffy can hear none of it... - 9

                                      The Gift: A boy is trapped in an alley, speechless with fear. A male vampire approaches. Buffy appears, addressing him fearlessly. "Have you ever heard the expression, "biting off more than you can chew?" The vamp attacks but she sidesteps, brings her foot hard into his knee, cracking it. "Oh God, my leg!" "See? now we're communicating." She catches a piece of wood as it flies from splintered boxes, slams it home, he dusts. "Been a long while since I met one didn't know me." Teen: "But - you're just a girl..." Buffy stops, looks back.. "That's what I keep saying." - 11
