Back at the mansion Karen describes the demon to Jonathan, Buffy, and Riley. We learn that the demon had a symbol on his forehead, which Jonathan recognizes and says belongs to an essentially harmless monster. Buffy offers to patrol, but Jonathan says that he'll take care of it. The camera zooms in on Buffy looking troubled as Jonathan arranges a ride home for Karen.
Establishing shots of somewhere that looks like it may be a library. Adam (aw, crap) and his henchvamp are doing some research. Basically, Adam is the only one that can sense that the world has been magically altered and all this Jonathan stuff is a big hoax. He decides not to do anything about it because he's interested in chaos. Is Adam's last name either Bunim or Murray? Because that sounds suspiciously like something that the producers of The Real World would say. It also explains why his scenes are so crappy.
At the mansion Jonathan is staring into the fire with a contemplative look on his face. A buxom blonde appears at the railing of the indoor balcony, dressed only in lingerie, and asks in a Swedish accent if Jonathan is coming to bed. Her twin sister appears beside her and echoes the sentiment. Okay, that's it. I thought all of these contrived situations were pretty cute up until now, but having a threesome with sisters is just plain gross. Jonathan tells them that he'll be right there, and as he takes his robe off we see the same symbol the demon had is scarred onto his left shoulder.
Buffy, Willow, and Tara are walking on campus. For once, the worst dressed person in the scene is not Willow but Tara, who is wearing one of those unfortunate skirts that are made out of an old pair of jeans. Tara assumes that Buffy and Willow have to go fight the monster now, but Buffy tells them that Jonathan is on the case. Buffy mentions that Jonathan seemed afraid, but Willow reminds her that Jonathan "doesn't get scared. You talked about it when you gave him the class protector award at the prom." They reach Tara's dorm, and she says goodbye, but not before Willow squeezes her hand in goodbye. Buffy and Willow walk off and start talking about Riley, instead of Buffy making a comment about young witchy love.
Tara walks into the lobby of her dorm as creepy music twangs in the background. Suddenly the monster bursts out of the door she was heading for, knocking her down. Tara crab-crawls backwards on her hands and legs while reciting the beginnings of a spell. Suddenly she aims her palms at the monster and smoke spews out of them, buying her enough time to get up and run into a supply closet that probably should have been locked. Instead of trying to open the door, the monster just bangs his oversize arms against the door.
