The opening of the episode brings us to
Frankfurt, Germany. In what looks like an ode to "Run,
Lola, Run", a pink-haired girls runs from the same robed
figures we saw last week. She runs through a nightclub and
climbs down the side. She reaches the ground safely, but
eventually the robed figures catch up to her and pull her into a
small room. As they kill her, her head turns to the side, toward
the viewer, and she says, "From beneath you, it
Buffy wakes up screaming, as Dawn shakes her. It
seems as though it was just a dream, but Buffy obviously doesn't
think so. She says that there are more girls out there that are
going to die. Outside, the ground begins to rumble and you can
see something moving underground. Then, the scene cuts to Spike
in the basement of Sunnydale high. As the basement begins to
shake, Spike screams for it to stop.
The next morning, Xander comes over to the house
to give the sister's a ride into school. Meanwhile, in England,
we see that a taxi has arrived to take Willow to the airport.
She is coming back to Sunnydale, although she is very hesitant
to do so. She's afraid she hasn't finished her training yet, but
both she and Giles know that she is needed in Sunnydale, to face
the coming danger.
Later, we see a woman, Nancy, walking her dog.
The thing that was moving around underground earlier pulls the
dog into a hole in the ground. She is dragged toward the hole,
and just as she gets to it, it explodes and something that has
come out of it scares her. She turns and runs off, right into
Xander. He brings Nancy over to Buffy's house, where they
bandage her hand up and she tells them what happened. They tell
here that they'll take care of it. Spike, who is standing in the
doorway, tells them that they'll need his help. No one looks
very happy to see him.
Spike pulls Buffy aside and tells her that he's
here to help - he can feel something big and bad is coming. She
still seems skeptical of him, but agrees to let him assist. The
gang goes off in search of the underground being. Buffy and
Spike go off together, but Buffy is obviously still
uncomfortable being around him. When Spike hands Buffy a
flashlight, their hands brush and Buffy has a flashback to the
attempted rape. Spike tries to tell Buffy that he's changed. She
knows there's something he isn't telling her.
Xander and Nancy arrive at her apartment. They
are obviously hitting it off, when more rumbling starts and the
window breaks. Xander and Nancy run, as the monster breaks
through the floor behind them. The monster can't reach them, so
it scurries back underground. Nancy make a comment about her
abusive ex-boyfriend Ronnie, whom Xander suspects is behind all
this. Nancy doesn't thinks so, but that she just wished it would
all stop. When Xander hears Nancy say "wish", he
rightly thinks of Anya.
At the bronze, Anya is sympathizing with a girl
whose boyfriend has been cheating on her. Anya's trying to coax
the girl into making a wish. Xander, Nancy, Buffy, and Spike
show up and ask Nancy if she had talked to Anya. Nancy confirms
this and Xander asks Anya if she turned Nancy's ex into a big
worm. Anya confirms that she did so. Xander criticizes Anya, as
Nancy wonders who Anya is. They all argue, and then Anya starts
staring at Spike, suddenly realizing that he has a soul now. He
freaks out and starts fighting with her. Buffy intervenes, and
then Buffy and Spike fight. Nancy takes off and Buffy goes after
As Nancy is walking away, the ground starts
rumbling again. At the bronze, Xander and Anya argue. Xander
asks Anya to reverse the spell, but she tells him she can't. She
tries to blame Xander for everything, but he exclaims that that
excuse just doesn't work anymore. Back to Nancy, the worm,
Ronnie, emerges from the ground. Spike starts to attack it, but
just as he stabs him with an iron rod, Ronnie returns to his
human form and Spike stabs him through the shoulder. Spike
screams and holds his head. He apologizes and starts to become
insane again, rambling on like a mad man.
Buffy and Nancy are both very disturbed. Buffy
calls an ambulance. Spike, in his craziness, says that something
very bad is coming that will destroy them all. "From
beneath you, it devours." He runs off. Xander and Anya show
up, and Nancy leaves. Xander tells Anya that she did the right
thing, reversing the spell. Anya knows she's going to be in
trouble for it.
Buffy, looking for Spike, goes into a small
church. It's extremely dark inside. He comes up from behind,
shirtless. He sounds crazy again and starts talking about the
"spark". Spike says that he went to get the
"spark" back. Buffy doesn't know what he's talking
about at first, but then Spike says that Angel should have
warned him. Buffy then realizes that the "spark"
refers to soul, the soul that Spike now has. He says that it
burns. He goes up to the large crucifix and wraps himself around
it. Buffy cries softly as smoke rises from Spike's skin, and he
asks, "Can we rest now?"
