Primeval / Restless
Spike's plan to split up the Scoobies was almost perfect... until Adam realized that with Willow and Buffy not speaking, the Slayer would not receive the information on the encrypted disks. When Spike tries to rectify his mistake, he unwittingly clues Buffy into his manipulations. The gang, realizing they're stronger together, cast an enjoining spell to combine their greatest strengths. Meanwhile, Adam retreats to a secret lab in the Initiative with Riley, who's been booby-trapped with a behaviour modification chip. Kristen and Mike make a final attempt to understand Adam's dastardly plan, and try to nail down why this action-packed episode seems lacking in action.
In "Restless", the Scoobies are keyed up from the enjoining spell. Although they plan on celebrating with a movie marathon together, they all quickly fall asleep on the couch. We enter each of the sleeping beauties' dreams, which give us insight to their pyschy as well as some foreshadowing. Kristen and Mike discuss Willow's hiding, Xander's lack of mobility, Gile's sense of purpose, and Buffy's rejection of the Slayer myth.
PLUS! We answer Elle's question: Which relationship would you have loved to see last until the very ending of Chosen?
