Spike shows off for the camera in the basement. No, not like that, gutterminds. He angrily tells Andrew to sod off, but when Andrew tells him that the light wasn't good, Spike repeats his little performance in better light.
As I'm recapping, Ash wanders into the room, declares, "Spike is my baby daddy!" and walks back out again. And I thought I was the only one suffering the adverse affects of four years of recapping. Poor guy; my TWoP coverage for post-traumatic recapping syndrome doesn't extend to him.
Upstairs, Anya wants to know if Xander still loves her. Xander replies that Anya was the one who wanted them to stop seeing each other. Anya's irritated comeback is, "And here's where we jump on the merry-go-round of rotation knives. I blame you and you blame me and we both end up all cut to shreds." Aw, that's kinda poetic. In a sad way. Xander stares at her, and she demands, "Do you still love me?" His answer is yes. "I always will. I just don't know if that means anything for us anymore." Anya says she loves him too. As Xander says, "I'm not going to find anyone out there like you, am I?" we see that Andrew has left behind his camera to film this exchange. Or he's snuck up from the basement with it, I guess, since that's where we last saw him. Anya doesn't think Xander will find anyone like her, and assures him, "There's no one like you, Xander. You were willing to stand up to danger even when your hands had no weapons." And then we see Andrew holding the camera, playing this scene back, and mouthing along to all of Anya's romantic dialogue. She continues, "You were ready to protect me with your life." Xander says they fit together "pretty good," and Anya responds, "We fit together great." Andrew keeps mouthing along as Anya tells Xander, "I hope you know you never left my heart." Andrew chokes back tears and rewinds his tape to watch the scene again, but Buffy bursts into the house with Wood in tow. They tell him that "the school is out of control with the energy from the Hellmouth" and it's time for Andrew to provide some help in getting rid of the Seal. Andrew protests about his video project, but Buffy tells him, "No more watching."
