Tara comes rushing into her room to find Papa McChoad already there, fingering her stuff; she'd left the door unlocked. Again. He's upset that she doesn't try to hide her Wicca ways, and he thought that if they "let [her] go," she would "get it out of [her] system." Everyone getting the subtext here? Yeah. Cree. Pee. Papa McChoad says that they came because her twentieth birthday is approaching and that's "the same age your mother was when she..." What? Wised up and ran out on your ass? He asks if she's told her friends, and Tara shakily applies in the affirmative, but admits that she's lying under her father's brutal cross-examination of "are you lying to me?" Papa McChoad lays down the law and tells Tara that she's coming home with him and that they're leaving in the morning. Tara looks anguished. Papa McChoad then feeds Tara some more typical abuser's rhetoric before leaving: "Your family loves you, Tara, no matter what. How do you think your friends are going to feel when they see your true face?"
Somewhere...else, the Abimbonation pelts shoes at the sore-covered demon to wake him up. He's chained to a closet rod in part of a huge, HUGE closet. Let me get this straight. The Abimbonation has only been in Sunnydale a matter of weeks, and she's already either amassed or transported more clothes than I have owned in twenty-six years? Maybe all Buffy needs to do is point her in the direction of the Cabezon outlet mall and be done with it. Anyway, Amber or whatever her name is finds out Buffy's secret identity from the demon and then orders him to "get your friends. Find the girl. Kill the girl." Whatever. Wake me when this character becomes important.
Tara sits pensively in her room when Willow walks in. She tells Tara that there's a Scooby meeting. Tara tries to beg off, but Willow insists and Tara gets increasingly agitated, saying, "Not everything is about you and your friends." Willow is chastened, but Tara quickly retracts her comment, claiming that she's just tired and busy. She tells Willow to fill her in the morning, and Willow agrees, saying, "Great. We'll be demon hunters." Rogue demon hunters? As soon as Willow is gone, Tara turns and leafs through her books, looking more and more tormented.
