It's Career Week at Sunnydale
High for everyone but Buffy -- her fate as the Slayer has already been
sealed. While Buffy is bummed, Spike seeks out a cure for Drusilla by having
a transcriber go through a book stolen from Giles. They realize the book
is in code, and through tarot cards, they can figure out what to do. While
at the cemetery, Buffy enters a mausoleum and sees the transcriber and
another vampire -- she's able to kill the vampire, but the transcriber
eludes her. When she returns home, Angel is waiting for her and warns her
of trouble. She's still upset about Career Day, and reveals her secret
childhood obsession with ice skater Dorothy Hamill.
Giles worries about the
missing vampire and what was taken from the mausoleum. We see Spike with
a coffin pillow adorned with a cross -- part of the cure. He knows if Buffy
keeps interrupting, he'll never get the key to curing Drusilla, so he decides
to summon bounty hunters -- the most savage of killers. Giles chastises
Buffy as they examine the mausoleum together and Giles finds the name "duLac"
-- he was the author of the stolen book Spike has; a book of evil spells
written in archaic Latin. They realize the cross has been stolen from his
crypt, and it is the tool which will allow Spike to wreak havoc -- Giles
says he must decipher the book first in order to save them. Meanwhile,
we strangers start hitting town and doing their damage-- one is a door-to-door
cosmetic salesman, one is an evil-looking guy, and one is a beautiful woman.
Buffy blows off the deciphering
session to go skate with Angel, but Evil Guy is already there. Angel tries
to save her but she's able to cut the guy's throat with her skate blade.
Angel wigs when he sees the guy's ring -- Giles identifies it as the symbol
of the Order of Teraka -- the deadly assassins. These are not the ordinary
vamps; they'll stop at nothing to kill everything in their paths. Buffy
freaks and goes to Angel's house while Angel goes to a local bar, trolling
for information about the bounty hunters. The beautiful woman arrives and
attacks Angel, locking him in a cage where he'll be vulnerable to deadly
sunlight within hours. While working with the transcriber, Spike has finally
found the answer to curing Drusilla. As Xander and Cordelia go looking
for Buffy at her house, Cordelia lets the cosmetics salesman in. Back at
Angel's house, the beautiful woman tries to kill Buffy with an axe, identifying
herself as Kendra, The Vampire Slayer...
