Riley is going through the house trying different doors when he comes upon Xander. "Nobody harms my Master," says Xander. "You want him? You come through me." Boom. Xander hits the floor. Well, that's what you get for wearing an oxford with no collar, Xander. "Okey dokey," says Riley and continues on his way.
Giles too is searching the house. He opens a door and steps through it, falling right into a pit. "Oh, good show, Giles. At least you didn't get knocked out for a change," he mutters to himself. Ha! He is immediately set upon by three gorgeous Dracubabes, who begin to maul him, but in a good way. For the moment.
The Dark Ponce rolls up his sleeve, STILL TALKING. "All these years fighting us. Your power so near to our own and you've never once wanted to know what it is we fight for. Never even a taste." He slices open his wrist and offers it to Buffy. She protests that she's not hungry. "You think you know. What you are. What's to come. You haven't even begun." Hmm. I know I've heard that somewhere before. Anyway, Buffy takes his wrist and starts sucking. Is there a new composer this year? The music is very "Marion's Theme" from the first Indiana Jones movie. Snackula tells her to embrace "the darkness" and her "true nature." We're treated to few quick shots of the first Slayer coupled with a few shots of Buffy hunting. She jerks her head back and shoves Dracula backwards onto the table. Dracula, in a very Captain Obvious moment, notes that she is resisting. "Looks like," agrees Buffy with a very Faith-like head tilt and intonation, which I've been noticing throughout this whole episode. I wonder if they're going anywhere with that? Dracula can't quite believe what he's hearing so he settles for growling and rushing her. Buffy does a very Super Mario Bros. move and jumps over him. They exchange blows, and then Dracula sneaks in a wicked punch that causes Buffy to fly about fifteen feet in the air and land heavily on the table. Ow-wee.
Riley is still looking for Buffy and almost falls through the same door that tricked Giles earlier. He catches himself on the door frame, then tosses Giles down a stake before hauling him up. In the process, Giles loses his shoe and is about to go back to get it, obviously in some sort of thrall of his own, but Riley drags him away saying, "No, no, no, sir. No more chickpit for you." Heh -- that was the Riley line that made me laugh. My spell-checker suggests that I use "chickpeas" instead of "chickpit." Yeah, Giles, lay off the falafels.
