Willow is in the library, slumped over her books and looking sad. Tara rushes in, and they move out into a hallway to talk. Tara tries to explain what happened with Oz -- that he changed into the wolf while talking with her; Willow is surprised because it's still daylight. Willow asks if Tara is okay, but doesn't even ask about Oz. Tara says she's fine, but explains that Oz was captured by Riley and the commandos, who aren't aware of his identity. Willow realizes what this could mean, and rushes off to find Buffy. Tara looks after her sadly.
At Giles's house, Willow is explaining to Giles, Buffy, Xander, and Anya what occurred with Oz and Tara. Anya utters one of her usual un-funny "candid" comments, which distresses Willow. Xander utters one of his condescendingly unfunny reproaches to Anya. This week, Anya is wearing a pink and cream sweater set that looks like a reject from a matronly woman's closet circa 1963. In the background, Buffy dials Giles's phone and then hangs up in frustration. Giles expositions that the gang will have to break into the Initiative. Xander snarks that it would be great if one of them was dating someone on the inside, then gestures at Buffy and says, "Oooh, wait!" Buffy shakes her head sadly and says that she can't get Riley to answer her pages and they'll have to make their plan without him.
In the Initiative's pit, cleverly named "The Pit" as you might recall, Oz is still wolfed out, growling in a small cage. He looks like he's trapped inside a giant version of one of those foil Jiffy Pop popcorn devices people used before microwaves. Riley and the commandos, now changed into camo gear, stand around impatiently, and Forrest demands to know whether the doctor can identify Oz-Wolf as the animal that attacked their men. The doctor isn't sure because Graham "described characteristics present in over forty known varieties of demon." The doctor goes on about hair and fiber tests and doesn't seem very impressed by Riley's testosterone-pumped questioning. Riley pulls out his gun, saying he can tell the monster in the cage is a killer. He levels his gun at the Oz-Wolf who suddenly morphs into naked Oz. Riley lowers his gun and takes a step back, surprised. Everyone stares at Oz, who is panting exhaustedly. The scene changes and we see get a floor-cam shot from Oz's point of view. The doctors stand in a ring around him, with Riley behind them. Oz starts to regain consciousness, and Riley tries to speak with him, but the doctor explains Oz is doped up on Haldol. Riley is getting agitated, explaining that Oz isn't a threat. The doctor replies that only Colonel McNamara can order the testing stopped on the subject. The doctors continue to examine Oz, and one gives him an injection as Riley protests that Oz is a student he knows. The main doctor orders Riley's removal from The Pit. Another doctor jabs Oz with some sort of electrical prod and, screaming, Oz changes back to his wolf state.
