"What's My Line?"

Part I

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 (he's cuddling one of her stuffed animals...who said he doesn't have a sensitive side) and warns her of trouble. She's still upset about Career Day, and reveals her secret childhood obsession with ice skater Dorothy Hamill. Angel used to ice skate and they make a date to go skating when the rink is closed.


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 an Indian looking chick with pretty hair.(Kendra vampire slayer #2)
Buffy blows off the deciphering session to go skate with Angel, but this ugly evil dude(a bounty hunter) 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 so Buffy keeps it for future investigation. In the fight Angel vampired up and when Buffy touched his face (to look at his cut) he told her that she shouldn't have to touch him when he was like that. It got totally romantic when Buffy said that she didn't even notice. They kissed more heavily than ever before and Angel almost completely lifted Buffy off the floor. ;)

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 where she falls asleep on his bed. Angel is at a local bar roughing some snitch guy up until he tells him what he knows. Then, Kendra shows up 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, Kendra tries to kill Buffy with an axe, identifying herself.
