Shut up, As If! Shut up, shut up, SHUT UP!
Back from commercials, Overcoat Oldster breaks it down for Anya. Apparently, back in 1914, she was called to exact vengeance on him and sent him to be tortured in another dimension. "Every day I thought about how I would somehow get here and ruin your life like you ruined mine." Hold up, there. How did you get here, buddy? Does Greyhound have a Hell/Sunnydale line? And while Anya did curse you, she cursed you for being a philanderer. Granted, the punishment may not fit the crime, but don't stand there all righteous and green pretending like you were utterly blameless in the whole thing. Overcoat Oldster expositions that he frightened Xander away easily, with a "couple of phony visions." Anya breaks down in tears, and Overcoat Oldster revels in her pain. But then he decides that Anya in emotional pain isn't enough, and Anya should physically suffer as well, so he slashes at her with his claws and knocks her down to the ground. He's ready to really give her something to cry about, but -- oops! Buffy's noticed the fracas and has made her way over to defend the one getting picked on. Or, I should say, the one getting picked on who is also in the credits, because Buffy doesn't do a fat lot of anything for all the people in the huge brawl behind her.
