Buffy and Spike's relationship continues unknown to the rest of the Scoobies. Still worried about the fact that Spike can physically hurt her Buffy secretly asks Tara to research the spell Willow used to bring her back. The Troika use a new gadget in order to get a girl. Although Jonathan and Andrew disagree Warren decides to use their new toy to hypnotize his ex-girlfriend Katrina. When the spell wears off and Katrina tries to get away, Warren accidentally (?) kills her. In order to save his own hide Warren convinces Jonathan and Andrew to go along with his plan to frame Buffy for Katrina's murder. Buffy tries to turn herself in to the police, until she finds out the girl was Warren's ex, and beat Spike up when he tries to stop her. Tara reveals that Buffy didn't come back wrong just slightly molecularly different. Unable to cope with the fact that she didn't come back wrong, Buffy tells Tara about her relationship with Spike.

Say What? - quote of the week ... More Quotes
Spike: You see? You try to be with them. But you always end up in the dark. With me. What would they think of you? If they found out all the things you've done. If they knew who you really were...
Buffy: Don't.
Spike: Stop me. No. Don't close your eyes. Look at them. That's not your world. You belong in the shadows... with me. Look at your friends... and tell me you don't love getting away with this right under their noses...

** The wacky time loop created by the Trio's demons from the time Buffy leaves Spike's crypt till Andrew and Jonathan return to Warren's van.
** Jonathan and Andrew fighing in Warren's basement with light sabers.
