Buffy is still not impressed, so Spike (who still hasn't staked Dru ["Stake her, Spike, stake her!" -- Ace]) ups the ante by telling Buffy that if she doesn't admit she has some "tiny feeling" for him, he'll let Dru go free to kill Buffy. Dru avidly agrees, "I like that game much more." Spike practically begs for a "crumb" from Buffy. Good move, Spike, because there's nothing a lady loves more than a desperate, pathetic, begging guy. Unless it's a desperate, pathetic, begging guy who lets his ex taser her and then chains her to the wall. "Spike," says Buffy quietly so that Spike comes in close to her. "The only chance you had with me was when I was unconscious," she continues. Ouch! Spike screams in frustration and rants, "What the bloody hell is wrong with you bloody women?!!" Buffy is still unimpressed, and sasses Spike. He then blames the whole thing on Dru for leaving him for the chaos demon and turns on Buffy, admitting that he knows his feelings for her are wrong. He says she's destroying him, just leaving essence d'Buffy in his dead shell.
As he rants that he should just kill both his pesky wimmin, he's suddenly cut short by a cross-bow bolt to the back. He falls to the ground, revealing that Harmony has decided to join this fun little party. Harmony is hurt that he's forgotten about his "actual girlfriend" and gives him a good whack with the crossbow, earning approval from Drusilla. Loading another bolt into her crossbow, Harmony utters an "I give and I give and I give and this is the thanks I get?" speech, but is interrupted by Spike attacking her. They fight, and I guess somebody flipped the "struggle" switch in Buffy's side, because she and Drusilla frantically work on loosening their restraints. Dru gets free first and attacks Buffy, who uses the chains on her arms as leverage for a series of flips. Harmony and Spike fight until Spike manages to knock her down. He then goes to the aid of Buffy, who's taking quite a beating from Drusilla, and unlocks her handcuffs. "Poor Spike -- so lost. Even I can't help you now," mourns Drusilla, and runs off in a sulky manner. Spike and Buffy just watch her go, because I guess this episode Buffy forgot she's supposed to have a calling as a Vampire SLAYER. It seems as though her business cards now read "Vampire Socializer" or something. "And you can say goodbye to this," says Harm, pointing at her ass, and leaves. Again, Buffy seems to have no compulsion to slay or even fight the departing Harmony. I must say I'm very disappointed that we had Spike, Harmony, Drusilla, and Buffy all in a room together and no one died. Any second now I'm expecting a news release informing us that our old MBTV buddy Plot Contrivance has permanently joined the Buffy writing staff. Left alone, Spike and Buffy stare at each other for a moment, and then Buffy decks Spike so hard he flies into his Buffy shrine. As she storms out, tossing her hair, he sits up in the wreckage of the shrine to watch her go.
