Squeezing a lime into his mouth in the present-day Bronze, Spike explains, "That was the best night of my life." Buffy is staring at him and finally sneers, "You got off on it." Spike cocks an eyebrow and expresses disbelief that she claims she doesn't, but Buffy tosses off a little body language that screams, "Of course I don't, you freak." He tells her that she can kill vampires, can keep killing vampires, but all it will take is the one thing all vampires hope for. When Buffy inquires what that is, Spike steps up to her and breathes, "One. Good. Day." She shoves him away, and he responds by telling her she thinks she's immortal. She denies this, and he tries to prove the point by demanding, "Then how do you explain this?" and punching her in her wound. She shouts, he grabs his head and shouts, and everybody in the Bronze stares at the weirdoes next to the pool table. Spike tells her the lesson isn't over.
Riley walks through the graveyard we saw earlier, straight towards the mausoleum. Inside, we hear the Ratt-y vamp bragging that he killed the Slayer. Riley stalks inside and quickly dispatches Ratt-y vamp. He then pulls the pin on a grenade and runs outside. The mausoleum explodes.
Spike and Buffy are outside the Bronze. They fight a little, and then Spike tells her the second lesson is to ask the right questions. He claims that it isn't important how he won; what's important is why the Slayers lost. Buffy wants to know what the difference is and how he killed the second Slayer. Spike takes a few quick swings at her, which she easily dodges, and he laughs, saying he had no intention of hurting her so the chip didn't activate. He then vamps out and tries to rush her, but stops short, grabbing his head in pain. Buffy is getting impatient and punches him a few times and throws him to the ground. She claims she's ready to know how he killed the other Slayer. "A bit like this," says Spike, and tosses Buffy off him. She rolls, but instead of her standing, we see the other Slayer, a cool chick in a leather coat and Afro. She and Spike are fighting on a subway car, "New York City, 1977." I'm glad they didn't show this Slayer in the previews, because I was totally shocked and delighted with her wicked blaxploitation self. Fighting, and the action flashes between the subway car and the alley outside the Bronze, with Buffy's moves matching the New York Slayer's and Spike's matching his 1977 punk self. The fight continues, with some nice shots from outside the subway car windows. 1977 Slayer puts Spike's head out through a window, and he screams from sheer joy. Or at least that's what it said in the shooting script. My, my, my, but Spike looks yummy in his punky hair and gear. The fight continues. In the alley, Spike tells Buffy that NYC Slayer was cunning, resourceful, and hot. "I could have danced all night with that one." "You think we're dancing?" snaps Buffy. "That's all we've ever done," laughs Spike. And considering all the times Buffy could've killed Spike but didn't, I'd have to agree. Spike's present-day narration begins to run over the scenes of him fighting the Slayer in 1977. He tells Buffy that the dancing never stops -- every day she wakes up, wondering, "Is today the day I die?" On the subway car, he fights with a piece of handrail, and in the alley with the pool cue. He continues that death is always on Buffy's heels and part of her wants to get caught, in part to stop "the uncertainty" and in part because she's "just a little bit in love with it."
