In the library, Giles is assembling a tranquilizer gun when Buffy enters and fills him in on the happenings with Theresa. Giles offers his condolences, but Buffy waves them off in favor of action. In the woods, Willow runs, with the Oz-wolf in pursuit. She trips and falls, but the Oz-wolf sniffs something else in the air, and runs off. From beyond the grave, that chick in the "Thriller" video thinks, "Why didn't I get a lame werewolf like that?" Willow bails, and in the next scene, busts into the library and reveals Oz's secret. Well, that's not very polite. I mean, you wouldn't want him to tell people that you fart in your sleep or anything, would you, Willow? Anyway, the three of them head back to the woods. That's where we return as well, as sometime soon after, the Oz-wolf tentatively approaches some raw meat that UnAbel has left out for him. UnAbel takes aim at him from close by. Right before he pulls the trigger, however, Buffy comes flying out of nowhere, grabs the gun from UnAbel, and clocks him in the face with it. The Oz-wolf, seeing this, goes to attack Buffy.
Giles and Willow arrive, but Giles can't get a clear shot at Oz. Oz then throws Buffy into Giles and Willow, knocking them down. Willow's back on her feet quickly, though, and grabs the gun and manages to shoot Oz, who goes down faster than a Real World: Las Vegas cast member. Buffy retrieves UnAbel's gun as he gets to his feet, complaining that no one in Sunnydale is "man enough" to kill the monsters. Buffy demurs, and bends the barrel of his gun before tossing it back to him. "How about you let the door hit you in the ass on the way out of town." And if the door's unavailable, I'll volunteer my foot. Willow cutely asks if Oz will be okay, and Giles confirms that. Aw. The first time you shoot your boyfriend with a tranquilizer dart is so traumatic.
Xander and Buffy pedeconference at school. Xander: "How are we supposed to act when we see him?" Buffy says that he's still a human being. The discussion continues until it becomes clear that while Buffy's talking about Oz, Xander's talking about Larry. Hee. Speaking of the newest member of the Southern California circuit, we see Meat and Head (those guys just won't give up their dream, will they?) pulling the same trick as before on some new girl, except this time Larry comes out of nowhere and helps her gather her books. That's right -- we gays are very polite, and would never, ever surreptitiously check out anyone else's ass. Ahem. Larry bounds over to Xander and thanks him. Buffy asks what he did, but Xander hems and haws. Larry claps him firmly but tenderly on the shoulder, and takes off without the slightest peek at Xander's butt. Rookie. Buffy wonders what's going to happen to Oz and Willow, and Xander gives a tedious analysis of their future that's the werewolf equivalent of his speech about Buffy and Angel's future together he gave in "Surprise," so I'm not going to bother with it. He starts to say if it were up to him...Buffy: "It's not up to you." Well said, sister. However, since it's no work at all, I'll just add this: Shut up, Xander.
