Spike stares helplessly at the wreckage. Where to begin? Haul out the rubble, he reckons. Try to salvage what's left.
Riley bloody Finn, poking his nose in, interfering. They'd been doing just fine, until he showed up. Better than fine, because right before it all went to hell, Buffy had asked him -- had maybe believed him --
That rotten job was killing her, by inches. He'd done it for her.
She comes to him, such kindness in her face that he's afraid.
She hasn't come to punish him. She's come for something worse.
She's come to say she'll never come again.
