Dawn. Alley. Nervous. Willow stoned. Willow stoned means Willow walking all floppy and sticking out her lips. Like Sep said, don't be doing the magic if it makes you look like a dumb-ass. Dawn hears growling and starts to hurry off. She runs right into Willow's demon, but Willow assures her, "It's okay. He's not real!" I wish my having to recap the rest of this episode weren't real. Willow's demon says she summoned him, raised him with her magic, and I'm wondering if her magic can get him the cosmetic dentistry he so badly needs. The demon slashes Dawn across the face (maybe Willow could conjure up a manicure for him as well?). Willow and Dawn run like hell. They come across a car, and Willow commands, "Open!" The doors open. Once she and Dawn are inside, she shouts, "Close!" She used magic to close the car doors. Damn, Willow, what do you do in the bathroom, girl? "Wipe! Flush!" Willow uses magic to drive the car, and the encounter with the demon hasn't sobered her up much. She giggles as the car screeches all over the road and yeah, it's all fun and games until somebody gets hurt. Or as my family is fond of saying, "This will end in tears." Which it what happens next when the car slams right into a brick wall. Okay, since I didn't hear Willow do any "Seatbelt!" spell, I'm going to assume that neither one of them were wearing seatbelts, and I find it hard to believe that both of them wouldn't have gone straight through the windshield and done a face-plant right onto that wall.
Wondering what happened to Marti? I faked a phone call from Joss, and told her they needed her on the set to deal with a desperate situation. Yep, informed her that Marsters got a dark tan over the weekend and his current shirtless scene isn't shooting well. She was outta here so fast she left skid marks.
Dawn climbs out of the wrecked car, holding her left arm. She goes to check on Willow, but is jumped by the demon. Growl, growl, fight, fight. Dawn attempts to scramble under the car. Nearby, Spike and Buffy hear her screams. More fighting between Dawn and the demon. He corners her, but Buffy is finally on the scene. Buffy and the demon fight; Spike rushes to Dawn's side. As Buffy and the demon face off, it suddenly begins to shake violently, emit billows of smoke, and then burst into flames. It's a really cool effect, because the eyes begin to burn first and brightest, and as the whole body collapses into a shower of sparks, you can still see the falling, flaming eyes.
