Old Navy has it in for me. It's the only explanation.
Alarms are going off and red lights flashing as Spike fights with Thing One and Thing Two. Thing One has Spike in a choke-hold against the barrier of Random Reoccurring Vampire Character's cell. Random Reoccurring Vampire Character asks Spike to spring him because he knows where the exit is. Spike fights his way free and slams Thing One into the hypodermic needle being held by Thing Two, rendering him unconscious. Spike makes short work of Thing Two and quickly searches for the key card on Thing One. He frees Random Reoccurring Vampire Character, and they escape under a shiny metal door just before it closes. Can I just say that when I become an Evil Overlord I will make sure that my doors close fast enough to be effective? The two vamps miss the next door as commandos pour out of a nearby elevator. Spike informs Random Reoccurring Vamp Character of his new plan: "We split up. You go that way." Spike shoves RRVC into the Commandos and runs in the opposite direction, barely making it under another one of the slowly descending doors.
Willow is in a position of repose on her bed. We hear a knock, and Willow calls out for the guest to enter. I jumped a little because I thought this was the scene from the trailers, but as soon as I see that it's Riley instead of Spike walking through the door, I realize that it's much, much worse. Riley is there because he wants to ask Buffy out and wants Willow's advice. Willow gets up off her bed and asks Riley what he wants her to do. She nonchalantly tries to push Buffy's bag o' tricks under the bed with her foot before Riley can see it, but she needn't have worried, because although Riley notices she's struggling with the bag, he doesn't notice the contents as he bends down and pushes it under the bed for her. Willow: "Say that I help" -- blah blah happy lovey crap snipped -- "until the day one of you leaves and rips the still-beating heart from the other, who is now a broken hollow mockery of the human condition." Riley: "That's the plan." How much do I love bitter Willow? He tells her it's okay if she wants to tell him to go to hell. Hey, Riley? Does that go for me too? We learn that Riley has never "courted" anyone like Buffy before. Um, "courted"? Whatever, Almanzo. This ain't the prairie. Willow wants Riley to convince her to help him, and Riley seems to think his "honest face" is the ticket. Willow informs him that she's "seen honest faces before. They usually come attached to liars." Go Willow! Riley has given up and gets up to go but Willow thaws a little, saying, "She likes cheese -- and Ice Capades without the irony." I hate to break it to Buffy since she's such a fan, but Ice Capades hasn't existed for years because Dorothy Hamill's ex-husband ran it into the ground. Willow then mentions the only useful bit of information in this scene, namely she and Buffy are both going to a party at Lowell House, which is, of course, Riley's house.
Harmony is decorating her new lair in the manner of a kinderwhore store like Contempo Casuals or Wet Seal. I'm also betting that's where the wardrobe lady bought her that terrible outfit she has on. Spike ducks in through the cave's entrance, and Harmony seems pleased to see him until she gives him a smart slap across the face. I'm real glad that Harmony "Amaya: Undead" Kendall has been empowered, but I'm also willing to bet that, like her namesake, it won't last. Harmony lists all the ways Spike mistreated her, but Spike interrupts, "You're forgetting one other thing I did. I missed you." Harmony's newfound spine crumbles under the weight of Spike's manipulations. They hug and Harmony warns him to never run off on her again. Spike's true intentions become clear as he swings random weapons about, saying that as soon as the slayer is dead, "It's all you and me, my little mentholated pack of smokes." Spike smokes menthols? Wuss. Harmony suggests leaving Buffy alone since "she'll only slap you around, and I can do that." She twines her fingers in Spike's hair as he pulls an Angel and protests, "Not the hair." Harmony ignores this and pushes him onto the bed.
