Groosy is tending to Cordy, who's recovering from her vision. Cordy advises him not to fight "a big, ugly, pointy demon with green skin." Doesn't that describe half of the Pylean population? Enik marches in and says, "I see we are progressing towards mating. Let's get on with it." Cordy asks what happened to the wedding, but Enik is feeling impatient. He starts toward Cordy, but then a guard enters and says that there's something going on in the village. Enik is led to a window with a nice view of the square. Angel walks into town carrying a three-pronged torch, stands on the platform, and challenges Groosy to mortal combat. Mor-tal Kom-bat! [Insert techno beat here.] Sorry, I have a Pavlovian reaction to that phrase. Fred cowers by a building. Back inside, Enik tells Groosy that he's been challenged to a fight. Cordy blathers about her vision, but Enik leads Groosy out and locks Cordy in the throne room. Enik pauses by the window and tells Groosy, "If this filth should win, he will ravage and he will defile [Cordelia]. He will use her for his pleasure, again and again, and when she has no more screaming in her, he will kill her." Thoroughly enraged by this chumming of the waters, Groosy rushes out to the battle. Cordy doesn't know what's going on because the throne room has no windows. You'd think the rulers in Pylea would want windows somewhere. Or maybe a balcony, from which they could spit on the whores.
By the castle doors, rebels lurk in the bushes while people in the village shout the news about the coming battle. Don King starts pasting up posters advertising "The Pillage in the Village." Wesley reconnoiters and sends rebels off to certain death. Guards in the distance begin shouting about attacks at several locations, and several of the guards by the doors run off to help. Uh, maybe you should put the guards inside the doors, so that you could pick invaders off one by one if they managed to get inside? Because, not that I'm an expert here, but isn't the point of a castle that it's kind of a fortress designed to withstand attacks and sieges? If Wesley wins this battle, it's only because the Trombli are every bit as stupid as the rebels. Oh, so anyway, the rebels with Wesley finally charge the doors shouting "Death to the state!" "State"? It's one town and a castle. Maybe the rebels don't know that. It'll probably turn out that there's a delightful human-run village just on the other side of the hill. Wesley and Gunn rush in, and Wesley helps to batter down a door while Gunn tosses a rope over a wall and starts climbing.
