In Faith's hospital room a doctor asks, "What do you mean she just wasn't there?" and a nurse replies that when she came to the room to check on Faith, the bed was empty. The doctor demands that the nurse check the duty rosters to find out what happened to Faith because "coma patients do not just get up and walk away." A man who appears to be a plainclothes policeman demands to know why the doctor didn't have security watching the patient, who was wanted for questing in a number of murders. The doctor insists that there was no way Faith could have woken up. An orderly rushes into the room and tells them they've found another woman, "unconscious and badly beaten", stripped of her clothes. The doctor and policeman rush from the room. The nurse watches them go and then steps over to a telephone. She dials a four-digit extension and says, "It's happened. Send the team."
Faith sadly surveys the ruins of Sunnydale High School. She then wanders down the Sunnydale main drag, as if disoriented and trying to get her bearings. Next we see her quietly walking down the stairs into the courtyard outside Giles's apartment. She sneaks up to the front door and watches the Scooby gang through a small window.
