And then it all goes to hell, because Caleb is waaaay more annoying than Glory ever was.
The dream Xander has about the two girls that want to have a threesome with him is hilarious.
Faith and Willow are back from L.A. and find the girl - Shannon - who was stabbed by Caleb. Faith goes after Buffy to say hi, and finds Spike chasing some girl through a cemetery, so she steps in to help. Only Spike's not evil and the "girl" is a vamp. And then they meet Buffy and everything gets straightened out and Faith kills the vamp so everyone's happy.
They take Faith back to the house and show her off. Spike fills her in on the source of the tension.
Caleb hangs out with the First for a while. God, he's boring. He does reveal that he blew up the council.
Andrew briefs the girls on Faith - mistaking the vulcanologist for an acutal Vulcan.
Principal Wood fires Buffy to give her more time to prepare for the First.
Faith and Spike smoke together in the basement and figure out they've met before. She kinda hits on Spike. Anyway, the girl from the beginning wakes up and Buffy goes to talk to her.
The girl tells her story and they get a picture of the burn Caleb left on her neck. And then she gives the message "I have something of yours."
So Buffy decides to take the girls on a little outing.
Caleb and the First play kinky games. Really.
Buffy fights her friends about her plan, but in the end she leaves Giles and Willow behind to protect the girls who don't know what they're doing. She and Faith go find a Bringer to follow and Buffy admits that she's glad Faith is there. They talk about Angel.
Xander gives the girls a pep talk about how great Buffy is and off they go to fight Caleb. They end up in the basement of this Vineyard and then they run into Bringers - and Caleb. Xander's team comes in to help and lots of slashing later Molly's dead, Rona's hurt, and...
Xander's lost an eye.
Because he trusted Buffy. He trusted her with his life and his world. And now he should have died - but he didn't. He just lost an eye.
Satan is a little man.
