Giles is sitting at the student center with Buffy and Riley and is surprised to hear that a vampire and demon were working as a team, despite the fact that he was present for the past three and a half seasons of this show. He explains that many demons think of vampires as "abominations" since they are mixed with human blood. Willow and Tara are there also, and Willow asks "what brought these two together"; Riley corrects her that they should be looking for a "who." "Adam!" realizes Giles, and Buffy says it's the most logical conclusion. Tara says Adam is "bridging the gap between the races" (and in Arizona and California, Ace and Sep are heard to yell, in unison, "By boring them into submission!"), and when Willow adds, "Like Martin Luther King," Giles gives her a look. She's rightly embarrassed. As Giles instructs Buffy and Riley to patrol the same area and keep an eye out for more demon/vamp teams, we see that the two fuck-bunnies are holding hands and feeling each other's hands up. As they continue to stroke palms, Riley says he'll inform the Initiative patrol and mentions the party being held at Lowell House. Giles is surprised at the mention of a party and inquires, "At a time like this? Who's idea was that?" A time like what, Giles? What the hell is going on that's so important? Adam has been on the loose for six episodes, none of you has done a thing about it, and nothing else seems to be going on. Riley says the party was his idea since his troops need "to let off steam." Giles sees Riley's point (but if Riley combed his hair just right it wouldn't show -- har) and then when Riley invites him, dryly says, "As much as I long for a good kegger, I have other plans." Hee. There's a song I sing to myself when recapping Buffy these days. It goes a little something like this: "Giles and Spike, Giles and Spike, only reasons for watching are Giles and Spike." Well, it might sound better if you could hear the tune. Giles says his plans are at the Espresso Pump and that it's a meeting of "grown-ups," which would be of no interest to the gang. As he talks, Buffy and her hump-hero moon at each other and let their fingers do the talkin'. Riley asks if Buffy should be at class, and when she says not for twenty minutes, Riley makes his amorous intent not very subtlely known by saying he has "a thing" to do, which would be Buffy, if you're paying attention. Buffy and her fry-daddy hop off into the woods for some bunny love. Willow shifts on her sofa and starts to explain to Giles what just occurred, but he interrupts her and says he went to university and recalls what it was like.
