Xander is driving; Anya is in the passenger seat next to him, Dawn and Andrew in the back. Anya wants to know how long it's been since Giles left with the Junior Misses, and Xander claims it's been a few hours. It seems like it should have been quite a bit longer than that, but okay. Xander ominously opines that if Giles is The First, he "didn't bring [the Junior Misses] out there to meditate." Yeah, I think we got that. Andrew asks Dawn if she's happy now that she isn't a potential Slayer. Dawn doesn't answer, but you can just tell she's sad that none of this revolves around her princess-y self. Anya and Xander worry that they'll be too late to save the Junior Misses. I really, really hope they are. Dawn frets that they'll be stuck in the middle of nowhere with "no Slayer and no powerful witch." Anya sums up their resources: "Just a teenager, a powerless former demon and two big geeks." Too bad for you, then.
Willren stomps down an alley and then, as Willow, collapses into a weepy pile. "Look at me -- crying like a little girl," sneers Willren as Warren, and then jumps up and heads off purposefully.
Buffy. Spike. Initiative. More creaking noises. Yawn. Buffy and Spike assume a defensive back-to-back position and spout the following totally inane dialogue. Spike: "You hear that?" Why yes, yes we did. We the viewers have the power of hearing, and if we don't, well, then we have closed captioning to tell us, "Whoosh." Buffy: "Yep." Yep, she did hear it. Well, we can all sleep better knowing that the Slayer also has the ability to hear loud noises on the soundtrack. Spike: "Think something survived?" Well, that would be the most logical conclusion. That, or that something managed to get in like you did. Either way, it doesn't really matter and you're just marking your location with all the blabbing. Buffy: "Sounds like." Yes, again, we already know that the Slayer can hear. Seriously, this dialogue both sucks and blows. Buffy's lip gloss is very shiny. She and Spike continue walking and then are attacked by a roaring demon. Buffy drops her flashlight. Wow. How thrilling.
