Nearly all the gang is admitted to colleges, Willow even Oxford; only Xander plans to tour instead. The mayor gives Faith a precious weapon as reward, and the mission to intercept at the airport the box of Gavrok, a container of mystical energy he needs for his demonic ascension. Mother Joyce hopes Buffy goes to Northwestern University, near an aunt in Illinois, but the watchers doubt if her slayer-duties allow any long absence from the Hellmouth; maybe if she first prevents the ascension, therefore Giles agrees to seize the initiative once they know more, quickly done ignoring Wesley's caution by the Council's book. Angel helps Buffy steal the box from the town hall, but Faith takes Willow hostage, only Wes would refuse to exchange her. First Willow kills a vampire guard and consults the Books of Ascension; at the meeting of both sides, the box is dropped, spilling some of its spider-scary content... Written by
Did You Know?
If Willow's telekinetic powers are sufficient to stake and kill a vampire with a pencil, why not at least try and use them to disable Faith and break her captivity. But Faith is a Slayer: much more powerful than the common vampire. And surely Willow was far from being the (almost) omnipotent witch that she'll be in the future. So she wisely chose caution.

Any clue on what college you might be attending so we can start calculating minimum safe distance?
None of your business. Certainly nowhere near you losers.
Okay, you guys. Don't forget to breathe between insults.
I'm sorry, Buffy. This conversation is reserved for those who actually have a future.
