Willow still cries in Xander's arms. He strokes her hair.
Anya puts Giles's arm over her shoulders and helps him out of the magic shop.
A big yellow truck, driven by a big tattooed truck driver. He looks over to the passenger seat and gives an appraising, menacing smile. In the passenger seat, Andrew and Jonathan huddle together, apprehensive. Jonathan's eyes dart nervously.
Buffy and Dawn walk though a park filled with flowering trees. A butterfly twinkles past.
A dark cave. Spike is lying on his back. The Deep-Throaty demon stomps up and tells Spike that he's "endured the required trials." I've endured the required trials of this season -- what do I get? Did we miss the trial where Spike had to make a full three-course meal out of the mangy ingredients he found in a stranger's fridge? Spike agrees with Deep Throaty. He pulls himself up and says, "So you'll give me what I want. Make me what I was. So Buffy can get what she deserves." "Very well," intones Deep-Throaty Demon. "We will return -- your soul." He lays his big meaty hand on Spike's chest. Golden light flashes all around his hand. Spike screams in pain, and his eyes glow gold. Fade out on Spike screaming. I hope that hurt a lot; I can spend all summer thinking of Spike suffering.
