School. We see Buffy in the courtyard. Ford's voice calls to her. The camera spins creepily to focus on him. He tells her he had fun the previous night, and asks her to go out again that night. She accepts. He says he has a surprise for her, and she neutrally says she likes surprises. They agree to meet at the school at nine. He leans in and tells her it will be fun, and walks away. After a beat, she does the same. This scene is eerily reminiscent of the one between Angel and Drusilla at the beginning of the episode, and conveys the same sense of battle lines being drawn.
Inside, Willow and Xander wait on the stairs. Buffy comes down and starts to walk past them, but Willow calls her name and hesitantly starts to ask about Angel. Buffy says that he told her everything. Well, not everything, but they didn't have all night. Willow explains that they were all just worried about her, and didn't want to say anything about Ford until they were sure. Xander asks if she found out what Ford's up to. Buffy grimly tells them she will, and walks off. She does a great job here of conveying that she believes Willow, but that she needs a little time to process everything that's happened. Willow and Xander, for their parts, look like they understand her feelings, until Xander breaks the silence: "Angel was in your bedroom?" Willow nods serenely, "Ours is a forbidden love." Hee.
