The Story:
- - Remember When Things Used To Be Nice And Boring - -
When the chip in Spike's head malfunctions, leaving him in constant pain, Buffy becomes very concerned about his health. Kennedy, who skipped out on Giles's vision quest by claiming to be ill, pursues her interest in Willow. After Willow and Kennedy kiss Willow suddenly takes on the apperance of Warren Meers. The Scoobies begin to question if Giles is real or an apparation of the First after receiving a call from Giles's friend from England. Spike and Buffy meet up with a military unit sent by Riley Finn at the old Initiative headquarters where the General informs Buffy that she has to decide whether to have Spike's chip fixed or removed. As Willow slowly turns into Warren, Amy Madison explains to Kennedy how she placed a hex on Willow which allowed Willow's subconscious to manifest her guilt over murdering Warren after he shoot Tara and for letting the memory of Tara go by kissing someone else. Kennedy is able to break Amy's spell by kissing Willow a second time.

Say What? - quote of the week... More Quotes
Amy: This is not about hate. It's about power. Willow always had all the power, long before she even knew what to do with it. Just came so easy for her. The rest of us - we had to work twice as hard to be half as good. But no one cares about how hard you work. They just care about cute, sweet Willow. They don't know how weak she is. She gave in to evil - stuff worse than I can even imagine. She almost destroyed the world! And yet everyone keeps on loving her. So what's wrong with having a little fun, huh? Taking her down a peg or two?
Kennedy: Fun? She's disappearing - fading away in that creep - and you think it's fun?
Amy: It was just a game. It's not my fault she's losing herself.
