In another car on a totally not-deserted road, Xanya are stuck in traffic, sharing a bag of chips. Anya opines that they actually must have died on the way to the airport and are really now in hell. Xander says that the radio said there was no traffic. "It's a hell radio. Of course it says that," grumps Anya. Heh. Xander gripes about his Uncle Rory. Anya frets that if she's not there to meet some demony friends of hers who are teleporting in soon, "someone's getting incinerated." Xander wonders why they were stupid enough to invite both her friends (demons) and his family (monsters) to stay at their place. Yawn. Booooring.
Buffy and Riley exit the car and walk over to the huge dam in Sunnydale. More pseudo-banter. Poor Buffy is flirting her little heart out. Buffy and Riley rappel down the side of the dam. Find the demon. Fight the demon. Get their asses almost handed to them. As the demon is momentarily incapacitated, Riley and Buffy almost share a moment with her leaning against the wall of the dam and Riley panting into her face. In the background, a figure in black rappels down the side also. She approaches the duo, and after briefly greeting Riley, shifts her focus to Buffy and asks, "What exactly are you doing with my husband?"
Well, dam! Ha -- see, that's a joke, because there's another shot of the huge dam, and oh, forget it. Poor Buffy breathes, "Husband?" and then, "Wife," to the two Kute Kommandos, who nod in konfirmation. There's something a little cross-eyed about Riley's wife. We suffer through a few more awkward moments before Riley finally introduces his wife as "Sam." But as so often happens in Sunnydale, there's a demon attack to break up the uncomfortable moment.
