They enter the magic shop. Buffy, seeing the police tape inside, snits, "Your work?" They split up to get the ingredients. Buffy and Angel start needling Spike about Dru. Much as Angel can be annoying, I never get tired of seeing him use Dru to get to Spike. Maybe it's because he exhibits an actual personality when he does it. Spike punches Angel, but Buffy tosses him away. Spike whines some more, prompting Buffy to snark, "You're not even a loser anymore. You're a shell of a loser." Spike: "You're one to talk." He points out that the last time he saw Buffy and Angel, they were fighting to the death, but now they're "making googly eyes at each other." Hee. "Googly eyes." Buffy and Angel claim they're just friends, but Spike isn't hearing it: "You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love 'til it kills you both. You'll fight, and you'll shag, and you'll hate each other 'til it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends." Thanks for the bubblegum wisdom. And if they move to different networks, instead of fighting and shagging they'll each never speak a word of the other again. Spike's coup de grace: "I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." That's my Spike. Well except for the "love's bitch" part.
Factory. Willow tries to break open the door, to no avail. Xander stirs, and props to the make-up department, because he looks just awful. Willow exposits where they are and why they're there. "Drusilla broke up with him." Xander: "Gee, and we'd all hoped those crazy kids would make it work." Hee. Xander wonders what their options are, but the three that Willow advances all end with them dying. Xander tries to get up, but falls back as Willow catches him. They lean in. Willow: "We're not supposed to." Xander: "Exemption for impending death situation." I don't really have a problem with this particular indiscretion, but boy, if they could take it back. The Guitar Of Infidelity starts playing, and I'm really glad this is the last time I'll have to hear it. They mack. The camera pans around to Oz and Cordy coming down the stairs. Oz barely reacts, saying they have to get out of there, but Cordy puts her hand to her mouth, looking for all the world like she's going to be sick. Charisma Carpenter really is a good actress. She looks so sad. She runs up the stairs, but one of them collapses and she falls through. Xander rushes up to see her lying face up. She manages, "I fell." The camera pans down to show that she's been impaled on her left side, somewhere near her kidney. It's pretty shocking.
