The Story:
- - You Taste Like Strawberries - -
Tara and Dawn wake up in the Summer's empty house wondering why Willow and Buffy never came home the night before. Buffy tries to come to terms with the fact that she slept with Spike. Willow returns with Amy who relates to all their indulgence in magic the night before. Tara, disappointed with Willow's behavior, abruptly leaves. Xander, Anya, and Buffy relate their similar feelings and worries about Willow's growing addiction to magic. Unknow to the others Buffy parallels Willow's addiction to magic to her own developing 'addiction' to Spike. Looking for darker magics Amy takes Willow to a warlock named Rack. The gravity of her situation is revealed when Willow brings Dawn along with her on one of her visits to Rack. After breaking Dawn's arm in a car crash Willow vows to give up magic. Similary Buffy vows to give up Spike, regardless of how good he can make her feel.
