Becoming, Part II

At the mansion, Dru is kneeling behind Giles. She dabs his brow with a handkerchief and says, "Poor thing. Let's see what's inside," while running her hands over his head. She gasps at something that is revealed to her and moves to face Giles. She holds up her two hypnotizin' fingers and does her little spiel. Then she holds her hands over his eyes and commands him to "see with [his] heart." As she removes her paw, her visage has changed to that of Jenny Calendar. Giles smiles and starts to speak, but Jenny shushes him. Giles desperately tells Jenny that they have to get Angel away from Acathla, while Dru as Jenny skillfully draws the necessary information out of Giles. As Jenny kisses Giles passionately, the camera pans out to reveal Spike and Angel observing the scene. Angelus: "Of course. The blood on my hands must be my own -- okay. Kill him." He turns to go but Spike quickly interjects, "Uh. But what if he's lying?" Angelus concedes the point. Spike looks over at Dru, who is still making out with Giles, and he clears his throat and says her name reproachfully. He has to try a couple of times to get her attention until she turns around and sheepishly lisps, "Sorry. I was in the moment."

Back at Fort Giles, Whistler is raiding the larder. Buffy enters and demands, "What did you mean, the sword isn't enough?" Whistler, in his habit of not answering anyone without first annoying the crap out of them, mutters something about an Englishman's fridge and dating nuns. He finally explains that once Acathla opens a vortex to hell, only Angel's blood can close it, and that "one blow will send 'em both back to hell." I realize that in the porno remake of this episode (Be Cumming II), it would be one blow-job that would do the trick. He warns her that "it's all on the line here," but she assures him that she's "got nothing left to lose." To her retreating figure Whistler says under his breath, "Wrong, kid. You got one more thing."

On the way to Angelus's mansion, Buffy is accosted by Xander, who has been waiting for her in the bushes. "Cavalry's here. Cavalry's a frightened guy with a rock, but it's here." Buffy hands him a stake instead, and then tells him to get Giles and get out. Xander, as if the thought is just occurring to him, says, "Willow! Uh, she told me to tell you --" Beat. "Kick his ass." Buffy wordlessly continues walking, and Xander follows her after hesitating a moment. Now, I'm not suggesting we talk it to death on the boards; in fact, if I see a thread entitled, "Xander's lie" I'm going to bludgeon myself to death with my mouse, But I would like to know why there wasn't ever any aftermath with Buffy finding out what Willow actually said.
