Factory. The Master, up on a stage with Xander and Willow, is giving a rousing speech about the wonders of technology. He goes on that some have pooh-poohed "such an advancement. They claim that death is our art." I only put that in because in "Fool For Love" Spike tells Buffy that death is her art, which brings up the question of how deeply the Slayer's power is rooted in darkness. Then again, we also know that death is her gift, so maybe I'll shut up now. Numerous humans, including Whitney, Larry, and Oz, are in a large wooden cage. The Master continues, "I say to them -- well, I don't say anything to them because I killed them." Hee. He's so petty. He says that a human concept, mass production, will aid them in taking over the world. Xander, choked up: "We really are living in a golden age." Heh.
Giles puts some herbs into a smoking golden goblet. He recites an incantation to bring forth Anyanka. The camera slowly pans right, and we see her in the darkness under the stairs. She steps forward and croaks, "Do you have any idea what I do to a man who uses that spell to summon me?" Giles looks like he has a couple of ideas, and they ain't pretty.
The Master orders them to get the show on the road. Some vamps open the cage and grab a screaming Whitney. They drag her to a conveyor belt, stun her, and load her on. This part's pretty gross, so here's the short version: The whole set-up is to extract blood from still-alive human victims. The caged humans look horrified. We see that Buffy and Angel are now on the scene, and are observing from the back. Angel: "What's the plan?" Buffy, holding up a stake: "Don't fall on this." Ha! A vamp pours a glass of blood from a tap, which is pretty funny, and brings it to the Master. As he does, Buffy and Angel sneak forward, and then Angel disappears to the side. The Master raises his glass and toasts the future. As everyone echoes the toast, Buffy raises her crossbow with one hand and fires at him. Moving quickly, he grabs Xander, who takes the bolt in his shoulder. Buffy aims at someone else, but the crossbow is knocked away. Mayhem ensues. Angel clocks the vamp guarding the cage, and lets the humans out. Another nitpick: Angel seems pretty strong for what he went through. Had they been feeding him at all? Maybe Buffy gave him a taste. Ew, not like that. Angel and Buffy fight in different parts of the room. Oz breaks off a piece of wood, leaving a sharp piece sticking out, which will be important quite soon. Willow: "Uh-oh. The puppy got out." She and Xander leap into the fray.
