Macawi pulls out his big knife as he threatens Shiv-as-Bridget. He finally finds her. She does her best to fight him off. They go crashing through the glass doors and onto the parlor floor. In a generous bit of fan service, Siobhan picks up a piece of broken wood and stakes Macawi. Unfortunately, he doesn't go poof.
Buffy: I missed the heart, once.
I am not your action recapper, suffice it to say there's more struggling and chasing. It's hilarious that the supposed badass to end all badasses is having such a hard time killing Shiv-as-Bridget. They make it out to the foyer. Macawi pins Shiv against her ginormous photo. He then lunges for her with the knife. Shiv ducks. The blade slashes through the monument to Shiv's vanity. Shiv runs off. Macawi follows after her. Bridget appears. She's got Chekhov's gun at the ready and orders Macawi to stop, then calls out for Juliet, because she just missed seeing the sister who shares her same Face by one second. Macawi is all confused. Bridget orders him to drop the knife. He fakes like he's going to and then he charges toward Bridget. She shoots him in the chest. Macawi falls to the ground. Bridget stands there with her mouth hanging open for a few seconds and then calls out for Andrew. She starts walking closer to Macawi's body. I yell at her to shoot him again, or he's going to come to and grab her by the ankle. She doesn't listen. Macawi comes to and grabs Bridget by the ankle. He pulls her to the floor, climbs on top of her and starts choking her. Bridget bites at his hand.
Guyliner enters and yells, "FBI, freeze!" Macawi turns to look. Bridget gets her hand free or pushes off one of Machado's hands or something. It's so fast and dark it's hard to tell. The point is? She shoots him right in the face. The blood spatters over Siobhan's now slashed portrait. It is even better than when Juliet scrawled WHORE on it.
Guyliner leads uniformed officers into the apartment. He finds Bridget hyperventilating on the floor and says, "Mrs. Martin. It's okay. It's okay." She wants to find Juliet and tells Guyliner she heard her yelling. Guyliner says he spoke with Andrew. Both he and Juliet are in the Hamptons. Bridget wonders aloud who Bodaway was attacking. We cut to the...
Hospital. Through the NICU window, a battered and bloodied Shiv watches over her babies who share the same Face. A nurse comes up and tells her visiting hours are over. Shiv turns. "I know. I don't have anywhere to go. We don't have anywhere to go." The nurse takes in Shiv's physical condition and says, "I might be able to find you a cot." While you're up, find me a second season! Once Shiv is alone, she looks at her reflection, which makes me think of my friend Theresa, who laughed with me at the mirror scenes back in the pilot. Then Shiv starts talking to her reflection. Perhaps in all the concussion, she thinks she's talking to her sister who shares the same Face. [So, not a different face, then? --Xander] Hush, you. Anyhow, Shiv says, "I have to get my old life back."
