I pause the tape while I get another big box of tissues.
We see Willow walking down Sunnydale's main drag, crying and wiping her nose on her sleeve. She bumps into a few passersby and then walks right out into oncoming traffic. Buffy spots her and shouts, "Willow!" but she's too far away. We see someone else grab Willow out of the street just as a car speeds past. Buffy comes running up and thanks the lank-haired Riley, who has saved Willow. Riley asks Willow if she's okay and Buffy strokes Willow's face as she asks her what's wrong. Willow, with her arms clutched tightly around her torso, just shakes her head. Riley suggests that Buffy should take Willow home and that whatever's wrong, "it's not worth hurting yourself over." Buffy and Willow begin to leave and Riley looks constipated -- or concerned. One or the other.
