At the Sunnydale Motor Inn, Ethan is packing to leave town. Suddenly his door is ripped apart and Giles stomps into the room. He attacks Ethan, who protests, "I can't undo you if you kill me!" Giles throws him across the room, and then Buffy and Riley appear in the doorway. Ethan tells Buffy to stop the demon and claims that it already killed Giles. Buffy tells Riley not to let Ethan get away and prepares to fight the demon. She kicks Demon Giles to the ground and demands to know what he did to, uh, Giles.
Spike is peeling around a corner, with at least two Humvees in pursuit, and he's laughing with glee. He takes another corner quickly and one of the Humvees loses control, spins out, and is almost crashed into by the vehicle directly on its tail. Spike looks in his rearview mirror and gloats at the "stupid jarheads" but then crashes directly into a pile of construction equipment.
Buffy and Giles are still fighting. Ethan tries to escape from Riley, but Riley makes short work of him. The fight between Buffy and Giles is nicely choreographed and involves clever use of one of those collapsible luggage stands. Buffy finally throws the demon to the ground and leaps astride him, holding the letter opener. "This is for Giles!" she declares and Giles confusedly says, "For me?" right before she stabs him in the chest. She looks into the demon's eyes and suddenly realizes that it's Giles. Buffy apologizes as Giles protests that he feels quite fine "except for the rage," but Buffy can't understand him, I think. She looks at the letter opener and asks whether it was real silver.
