In the library, Giles looks astonished as Buffy hands him a print-out and Willow explains, "Looks like Ms. Calendar was trying to replicate the original curse. To restore Angel's soul again." Giles thought the curse couldn't be recreated, but Buffy explains that Jenny tried anyway, and it appears she was successful. Seated at the library table, a stone-faced Xander growls, "So he killed her, before she could tell anyone about it. What a prince, huh?" Even Cordy appears to feel the gravity of the moment and suggests that they curse Angel again. Giles thinks the spell will take more skills with the black arts than he has, but Willow says she's been studying up for "educational fun" and may be able to do it. Looking concerned, Giles suggests that it could be dangerous for Willow, but Willow protests that she's the person to try. Angry Xander calls them all "crazy" and asks, "Who cares?" about restoring Angel's soul. When Buffy replies that she does, Xander gets snide and reminds them that Angel is a killer. As Buffy and Willow protest, Xander insists that Angel "needs to die." Giles says that curing Angel was Jenny's last wish, Xander snaps that Jenny is dead, and a full-on yelling match breaks out between the two of them. Buffy breaks it up, Giles storms away, and Buffy shoots Xander multiple pained "How could you?" looks. Buffy claims that "what happened to Angel wasn't his fault," but Xander isn't convinced and grits out that Buffy wants to "forget all about Ms. Calendar's murder so [she] can get [her] boyfriend back." Ouch. Buffy leaves the library as the rest of the Scooby gang stands silently.
Doug the miscellaneous science guy is working at the museum. He hears a whispering noise and gets up to investigate. As he reaches out to touch the runes on the object, Dru grabs him from behind and bites into his neck. As she feeds, Angelus brings in a gang of henchvamps to steal the obelisk.
Buffy is in her bedroom, packing stakes and other supplies and talking to Willow on the phone. They share a few words about Xander's attitude, and as Buffy grabs some stakes out of a drawer, she uncovers the claddagh ring Angel gave her. The Buffy/Angel love theme starts up as Buffy sadly studies the ring. I hate to criticize, but at this point I think we really all do get it. Buffy fell in love, it went wrong, she's sad. It's been going on for at least six or seven episodes so I think we could have done without the anvilicious reappearance of the claddagh ring.
