Buffy tells soldier Riley, who insists to be a nice, otherwise normal Iowa boy, she knows all about his secret military commando unit, and that she is the slayer, they agree on discretion and a time-out. However mismatched the involuntary house-mates are, frustratingly 'implant-innocent' Spike can't even hit Xander, fails a suicide attempt by falling on a stake. Willow is sad to find Percy drove to Sunnydale all the way from USC to visit Laurie but considers her a negligible nerd. Giles presumes Buffy's panic after an seismic tremor unjustified, till he checks the triangular mark carved into a corps Willow found in her bed, left by a demon race associated with the sacrifice of three -Buffy and Riley find one in the cemetery, each's team is alerted- and the word of Valios; by the time Giles figures out it's a talisman in his possession, it's robbed by the demons, who may now be able to open the apocalyptic hell-mouth in the high-school ruins left from the mayor's ascension...

They're just animals, man. Plain and simple. Granted, a little rarer than the ones you grew up with on that little farm in Smallville.
