Samuel's alone in the ice cream parlor as lonely, strummy music plays. The waitress asks him if something's wrong, and he growls, "Yes, something is wrong." He asks if he's scaring her, if he looks scary. She stammers she just wanted to know... and he stands up and screams that he can see how she's looking at him, like he's different, like he's not good enough. He's done trying to change himself for her (not sure if he actually means her, though, or all non-heroes; he just says "you," which could mean he's crazy-talking to her as if she were Vanessa or that he's talking to everyone; I think it's the former), trying to fit into her world, play by her rules. From now on, "you're gonna play by mine." He clenches his fists and screams and the earth shakes beneath them.
Back at the carnival, everyone feels the earthquake. Lydia the Tattooed Lady leads everyone out, where they watch the entire nearby town crumble into a sinkhole. Just like Sunnydale, except, you know, not as sad or as cool. And ... there go any profits the carnival was making in that there location, since he just killed off what must be the majority of their clientele. Samuel stalks back through the carnival angrily as Vanessa rides away in a cab still holding onto the flower Samuel gave her.
