The camera pulls in on Willow and then into her dream. In Tara's dorm room, a shirtless Tara lies on her stomach, head cradled on her folded arms. She worries that they haven't found Miss Kitty's name yet. Dreamy slo-mo shot of Miss Kitty romping with a ball of yarn. Tara repeats that she thought the cat would have let them know her name by now. Willow, sitting nearby, assures Tara that the cat will let them know her name and "she's not all grown yet." Tara asks if Willow is worried; Willow smiles and says, "I never worry here. I'm safe here." Tara responds that Willow doesn't know everything about her, and Willow makes a considering face, then asks if Tara has revealed her real name. Tara dismisses the question, saying that Willow knows it, and we see Willow dipping a brush in an inkwell. As she does so, Tara says, "They will find out, you know. About you." This appears to worry Willow, but she says she can't think about it -- she has schoolwork to complete. The camera pans out a little wider, and we see that Willow is painting letters in ink on Tara's nude back. I shout "Ooh!" and add The Pillow Book to my "movies to rent" list that I'm preparing in anticipation of three weeks of house-sitting this summer. Tara asks if Willow will finish her work before class, adding that Willow has never taken drama before. A close-up of Tara's back reveals about ten lines of what appear to be Greek letters (a poem by Sappho, apparently. Subtle in a not-very-subtle sort of way, Joss) painted on her back. Willow says she doesn't want to leave, but when Tara finally looks at her and asks, "Why not?" Willow just gets up and walks to a window. She pulls back the shade and bright light floods the room, illuminating Tara's back. Outside the window is a deserty landscape (looks a lot like where I live -- or more likely, the desert fifty miles outside Los Angeles) and Willow says, "There's something out there." We see flashes of something moving from bush to bush and then an extreme close-up of Miss Kitty, stalking the camera in slo-mo. I hope the cat is back next season. Maybe Miss Kitty can have Anya's slot -- I mean, they're both catty. Groan, I know.
Willow's dream changes scene and she's walking through a hallway at UC Sunnydale. She rounds a corner and encounters Xander and Oz. Oz! Willow greets them but keeps walking. As they follow her, Oz mentions that he heard she was registered for drama and that it's a hard course. Willow approaches a wall of lockers, asking if Oz has taken drama, and he replies, "Oh, I've been here forever." As Willow fiddles with her locker, Xander asks what she's been up to and whether she's been doing spells. Both guys stand behind Willow; Xander explains to Oz that Willow does spells with Tara, and Oz says he's heard that. A bell rings and Willow rushes off. Xander and Oz stay at her locker, and Xander coyly says, "Sometimes I think about two women doing a spell and then I do a spell by myself." Oz gives him a look, but I think that since both of them spent this entire scene with their hands jammed in their pockets, it's pretty obvious that they were already doing some little spells.
