Buffy, Anya, and Xander race to reach the remaining members of the Troika before Willow can get to them. Though Willow arrives first Buffy is still able to get Andrew and Jonathan out of the jail alive and they escape in a police car stolen by Xander. Buffy and Xander realize the extent of Willow's rage when she tries to run their car off the road even though she knows her best friends are inside. Spike commences the trials he must undertake to fulfill his mystery quest. Dawn feeling unhelpful convinces a reluctant Clem to take her to Rack's. Unfortunately when she arrives Willow is there and she has already killed Rack. Dawn is saved from harm when Buffy arrives but Willow's power is too much as she transports all three back to the Magic Box where Andrew and Jonathan are hiding. Buffy faces off with Willow giving Xander and Dawn a chance to escape with the remaining members of the Troika. It looks like no one will be able to stop Willow until Giles unexpectly returns to Sunnydale.
Say What? - quote of the week...
Anyanka: There is nothing in this world that could give me greater or more lasting satisfaction than reaping bloody vengeance upon you, Xander Harris. But I can't! Not officially, not magically -- So smile, it's your lucky day. You got away with it. I can't hurt you.
Xander: Right, cause you varnishing the table with Spike -- how could that possibly have hurt? It may have chaffed...
Anyanka: That wasn't vengeance. It was solace. I really can't hurt you. So I'll just have to settle for hating you.
Xander: If that's what you need to do.
Anyanka: Don't. You don't get to play the martyr.
Xander: I'm not.
Anyanka: None of this would be happening if it weren't for you.
Xander: You think I don't know that? You think I'm the hero of this piece? I saw the gun. Before Warren even raised it, I saw it, and... I couldn't move. He shot two of my friends before I could even... You want me to know how useless I am? That it's my fault? Thanks. Already got the memo.
Anyanka: I was talking about us.
