In the library, Giles sets down the stack of books, which start to tip away from him until a hand reaches into the frame and grabs them. The hand belongs to Buffy. Giles thanks her, then tells her he's been indexing the Watcher diaries, and says that it's amazing how "numbingly pompous and long-winded" some of them are. And Wesley doesn't even have an entry yet. Buffy fills Giles in on the previous night's patrol. He's less than pleased that she made no effort to discover what was taken from the mausoleum, and I can't say I blame him after the book-stealing in "Lie To Me." Also, Buffy's lackadaisical attitude doesn't jive with her behavior in that episode. Buffy gets snitty, and at this rate, no one's going to be speaking to her by the end of the episode. She Dawns that she never gets to go shopping, which is rich, considering that she has more outfits than Imelda Marcos had shoes. Giles tries to get the conversation back on track, saying that they need to discover what the vamps took.
Cut to a shot of a large ornate gold cross. Dru crazies that she can hear it humming. I hope the tune isn't "Early One Morning." Spike tells her that when she's well, they'll have a coronation. To crown her Queen Of The Bad Accents? Because Kendra hasn't shown up yet, so let's not be hasty. Dalton asks about the Slayer, saying she almost foiled their plans, prompting Spike to strap his bitch on and say that he needs to do something about Buffy. Then he has a thought, and says he needs to bring in an organization known as The Order Of Taraka. Dalton wusses that that's overkill, but Spike thinks it's "just enough kill." Dru turns over three more cards in the "See Whatever Image You Need To Advance The Plot" tarot deck, and nutjobs that they're coming to her party. The images on the cards, incidentally, are of a one-eyed devil, a worm, and a tiger. By the way, what do you suppose the bounty actually was? Because I don't really see Spike having much of value. Maybe he traded one of those collector's edition tarot decks.
