Reese reads the journal. For some reason, Sebastian feels free to chill across the street, looking into her window while she does so.
Bad Bad Buffy calls up Ronald, who is in bed with Cecile, and tells him she needs to talk to him, and we know she's going to tell him Sebastian slept with his best girl.
Apparently, Sebastian sat outside Reese's place all night. We see him hop off the wall he's been sitting on the next morning, looking not that tired, and walking away. Snuh? Why did he wait all night if he was going to leave when she finished reading the journal? Does he have somewhere more important to be?
Ronald storms angrily out of his apartment building. See, because when you want to find someone in Manhattan, you wander randomly through Central Park. It works, I guess, because he finds Sebastian five seconds later, confronts him, and punches him. Reese happens upon their fight, because in this movie Manhattan has a two-block radius. Anyhow, the battle royale continues in Plot Contrivance Park, Reese gets tossed in front of a cab, Sebastian shoves her out of the way and gets hit, really really hard by the cab. I'm not that sad about it.
Of course, in Dangerous Liaisons, Valmont and Danceny meet at dawn for a duel that they have arranged beforehand, and they have swords, and Valmont lets Danceny stab him, and it's pretty damn cool. This scene, by contrast, blows. Blah blah blah, I love you Sebastian, I love you Reese, he dies.
First day of school. The new headmaster (who, we learned at the beginning of the movie, is Reese's dad, but I didn't mention that because it matters not at all) is leading a service for Sebastian. Cokehead Buffy is snorting out of her religious talisman in the bathroom. Reese comes out of a stall, and they have a fake-nice chat where they meet for the first time, and Reese says she's sorry about Buffy's brother, and Buffy obviously doesn't care that he's DEAD, which I find hard to believe since she may be mean, but I don't buy for a second that she actually wanted him to GET KILLED. Reese tells Buffy to "turn to Jesus," but we know she means "smack," and at this point I'm ready to turn to Jesus to get through the rest of this movie, if you know what I mean.
