Say What? - quote of the week... More Quotes
Dawn: What do I do? What was I created for?
Gregor: You were created... to open the gates that seperate dimensions. The beast will use your power... to return home and seize control of the hell she was banished from.
Buffy: That's it? That's Glory's master plan... to go home?
Gregor: You misunderstand. Once the key is activated, it won't just open the gates to the beast's dimension. It's going to open all the gates. The walls separating realities will crumble. Dimensions will bleed into each other. Order will be overthrown and the universe will tumbel into chaos... all dark... forever. That... is what you were created for.
