Buffy walks out of her house to the limo. Her hair is up, and she's wearing an orange dress. Wouldn't have been my choice. And what's with the change purse? Anyway, she gets in to find a sullen-looking Cordelia in a shiny light green dress. I'm reminded of Maggie Smith in Gosford Park: "Difficult color, green." My poor Bitch-O-Meter wouldn't have lasted five minutes in that movie. And doesn't anyone wear black anymore? Of course, I'm from New York, so I'm biased. Black t-shirts, that's me. Recap? Oh, right. Buffy asks where Faith is, and Cordy hands her a letter. It's from their friends, saying that they're not riding with them because their group friendship is more important than who wins Homecoming Queen. It ends with, "The limo was not cheap -- work it out." Buffy notices there's a corsage, and Cordy digs, "I took the orchid." Buffy snits, "Okay." We see that the limo driver is a member of Team Sprockets. He's also pretty damn hot. In a German kind of way.
The limo drives down a dark road. Cordy and Buffy are bitching (to what degree, I can no longer gauge). We're meant to think they're working out their problems, but it turns out they're going on about Cordy taking the orchid. The limo stops, and they hear the driver run away. They get out to find themselves by the woods. They see a TV and VCR set up on a flat rock, with a big sign that says, "Press Play." Well, why not? It's not like it could explode or anything. Oh wait, it totally could. Buffy bites, and Mr. Trick appears on the screen, welcoming them to the SlayerFest. He explains that they are the hunted, and they have seconds to run for their lives. "Faith. Buffy. Have a nice death." Cordy protests loudly that she's not a Slayer, and the TV explodes. Just like my poor, lost Bitch-O-Meter. Sniff. The girls run.
The dance. Willow and Xander stand awkwardly, watching Dingoes play. I find it very telling that they're wearing the same outfits that caused the "clothes fluke." Faith approaches them, and wonders why they're so mopey. Maybe it's a passive effect of Angel coming back. Faith looks fantastic. Her hair is up, and she's wearing a simple black (finally!) dress that shows some cleavage, but not too much. She notices Scott dancing with some girl, calls him a "sleazebag" to Willow and Xander, and stalks off. Giles comes up and tells them something terrible has happened. Just kidding! Him, not me. They're not amused.
Buffy and Cordy run through the woods. Buffy, at a warning from Cordy, narrowly avoids getting her foot caught in a very painful-looking steel trap, set by the hunter dude. He moves to shoot them, but Buffy throws the trap at him, causing him to lose his balance and step into another trap. She holds the gun on him, and quickly extracts information from him on who the other players in the game are. Cordy again tries to say she's not a Slayer, but is interrupted by two of the spiny guy's knives flying into a nearby tree. The girls run again.
