The group of warriors approaches The Free-Range Bringer Farm and Sunnydale Winery complex. They don't seem to have run into a single guard or sentry outside. Wouldn't that seem to indicate a trap? Especially since Buffy and Faith saw Bringers wandering around outside earlier? Buffy breaks the gang into two teams -- one will stay outside, secure the perimeter, and come to the aid of the other team should they need it. The signal for help will be "lots and lots of yelling." Wow, that's a lame signal. Wouldn't a nice walkie-talkie be better? Or telepathic Willow, perhaps? Buffy, Spike, Molly, Kennedy, and some random Junior Misses end up walking down into the wine cellar. Kennedy suggests they've found an "evil vineyard." "Like Falcon Crest," muses Spike, whom I still don't hate. This episode. They wander among the casks, looking for Bringers, and are of course attacked forthwith. Hmm, I just had a thought. Buffy should've simply burned the building down as soon as she found it. Kill some Bringers and possibly kill their leader, and destroy their headquarters. What's not to love about that plan? Plus, she could've used a flamethrower, and I am firmly of the opinion that this show features far too few flamethrowers.
Anyway, Buffy and her little warriors fight Bringers. The wine cellar set is dark and kinda confusing, so I'm not sure of the details, but it looks like the Junior Misses are doing okay defensively, but not scoring many kills. Then the Bringers retreat and Preacher Maleficent strides in, hands clasped behind his back. I'm afraid we're in for a good talkin' to. Maleficent begins, "You girls are just burning with righteousness, aren't you?" Oh, that's just Buffy. The light of her righteousness could replace the sun. The rest of them, not so much. Padre Maleficent stalks up to Buffy, who tells him to save the sermon. "I heard you have something of mine," she tells him, and he just grins and gestures at the Junior Misses, saying, "I do now!" Oops! As Padre Maladjusted blathers about Shannon dirtying up his truck with her blood, Buffy's face crumples as she realizes that she has indeed led her troops into a trap. And for nothing. Ouch. Padre Maladjusted is excited to be in front the THE Slayer and her "notion of goodness." He notes that THE Slayer must be very powerful, and then punches her so hard in the face that she flies across the room and smashes into the ground and then the wall. Interesting stunt work there, since she flies sideways. I can't believe that Buffy just stood there for that, and that Spike let her. I'm also curious as to how Padre Maladjusted got so damn strong. With a devilish grin, the Padre asks, "So, what else you got?" I'm thinking that right about now is when those walkie-talkies would come in handy.
