William rushes through the dark streets of London, sobbing and tearing his poem into little tiny pieces. He bumps into three people whose backs are to the camera, but from the male figure's extremely bad hair and giant hunched shoulders, I know the trio consists of Dru, Angel, and Darla. William sobs that they should look where they're going and continues snittily on. He sits on a hay bale in a dark alley, still ripping at his poem, tears streaking his face. He hears a noise and sees Drusilla in the alley with him. Looking pretty nifty in her period gear and cascade of curls, Drusilla inquires what "catastrophe" brought "this dashing stranger to tears." William sulks that he wants to be alone, but Drusilla advances, saying she seems him as a man surrounded by "fools" who cannot see his strengths. William looks intrigued. Executing a strange jerky belly-rubbing move, Dru continues, "That and burning baby fishes swimming all round your head!" Hee, baby fishes. I like this flashback Dru. William doesn't, however, and backs away, saying she won't get a chance to steal his purse. Dru giggles at that and approaches him, pointing to his heart. "Your wealth lies here," she says, and then strokes his head, "and here. In the spirit, and --" and then I swear to god she backs off a little and stares right at his crotch, a hungry look on her face, finally finishing, "imagination." I always like a guy with a big...imagination too, Dru, so we have that in common. Dru gives him some more crazy flattering talk, which entrances William. He tries to break the spell by muttering, "Mother's expecting me," but Dru just pulls back his shirt collar and loons, "I see what you want. Something glowing and glistening. Something -- effulgent." William smiles slightly, and when Dru asks if he wants it, he replies, "Oh yes. God, yes." She switches into her game face and bites into his neck. William looks blissful, feels the fangs and wimps, "Ow! Ow ow ow!" but then seems to move into a kind of ecstasy as they slide down the wall together.
Graveyard. Scoobs and Riley still on patrol. Riley spots the Poison-ous vampire who staked Buffy, and they follow him until he enters a crypt. Riley stealthes up and peeks in a window (I don't have a lot of experience with above-the-ground burial places -- do they usually have windows? ["Often, they do, so that the caretakers can see what they're doing during the day." -- Sars]). Inside, he sees a motley crüe of vampires havin' a little party. Riley returns to the Scoobies and says they'll come back at daybreak (I can't use the word "dawn" anymore without worrying someone will take it the wrong way) to wipe out the nest. Does anyone care about this when we could be watching Spike? Didn't think so.
