Buffy slowly walks around the corner and tells Sheila to stay behind her. Stake raised, she walks toward the vamp guarding the door, who has his back to her. As she walks by the camera, we see that Sheila is now in vamp face. Ruh roh! She raises the axe.
Is Little Caesar's still around? Because their commercials rocked.
Sheila's about to swing when Giles shouts a warning. Buffy turns and blocks the axe, then grabs it away and knocks Sheila down with it. The other vamp, who looks like Paul Reiser in vamp face, rushes over. Buffy swings the axe at him. He ducks, and the axe buries itself in the wall. He smiles, but looks down to see a stake in his heart. He falls and combusts. Good. He was such a dick in Aliens. Buffy looks over at Sheila. Considering how dim she was as a human, it's surprising to see that she's no fool now, as she quickly withdraws. Buffy returns to Joyce, telling her to open the door. The adults run into the library. Buffy tells Joyce she'll be there in a minute, and rushes off. Joyce looks worried.
Spike and Angel chat. Spike wonders why Angel hasn't taken care of the Slayer. Angel counters that he saw Buffy kill the Master, and if Spike thinks he can take her himself, to have at it. Insert Season Six "taking her" joke here. Spike says not to be silly, that they'll kill her together, and proposes they drink to it. They lean in to bite Xander, but Spike punches Angel, saying he can't fool him. "You were my sire, man! You were my Yoda!" I think Angel would be much more entertaining if he spoke like Yoda. "Break up we must now, Buffy! Your future must we consider!" Oh, and as for the "sire" thing, insert "retcon" definition here. Incidentally, I never found it difficult to believe that Angel could be Spike's sire instead of Drusilla -- it would have been pretty much the same vibe as with Penn in "Somnambulist." Angel says that things change. Spike: "Not us! Not demons!" Would that that were true in your case, Count Schmoopula. He goes on, "Man, I can't believe this. You Uncle Tom!" Ha! He picks up one of the metal poles, telling his crew that they're not involved in a spectator sport. The henchvamps rush them, and Xander and Angel run out. Spike, however, senses something behind him. "Fee, fi, fo, fum. I smell the blood of a nice, ripe...girl." He turns to regard Buffy, who's holding the axe. She asks if they really need weapons. He says they make him feel "all manly," and strokes himself in a manner designed to provoke an "Oh, take me, you naughty, naughty boy!" from the audience. Not that it worked on me, of course. Nevertheless, he throws aside his weapon, and Buffy follows suit. He menaces that the last Slayer he killed begged for her life. I think he's just tale-telling about that last part. He goes on that Buffy doesn't seem like the begging type. Too easy. After a bit more posturing, he smiles, "As a personal favor, from me to you, I'll make it quick. It won't hurt a bit." Buffy: "No, Spike. It's gonna hurt a lot." And with that, they're off. The fight's pretty good, really.
