In the full moon, Oz returns to Sunnydale and spends the night with Willow telling that he was healed of the wolf thing in Tibet, using meditation, drinking some teas and using some charms. Willow has no courage to tell him her relationship with Tara. When Oz finds that Tara and Willow are in love, he becomes upset, loses control and transforms in a werewolf, being captured by the Initiative. Riley tries to help him, but is arrested. Meanwhile, Spike closes an agreement with Adam, and guides the Scooby group to the Initiative to release Oz and Riley. Written by

Did You Know?
After this episode, in which Willow comes out as a lesbian and chooses to stay with Tara, aired, a group of internet board posters sent show creator Joss Whedon
an engraved toaster to thank him for the storyline. This was a reference to the "coming-out" episode of Ellen
(1994), (a show on which longtime Buffy writer Jane Espenson
had also worked) in which there had been a running joke about the GLBT movement awarding every newly out person a toaster for "joining." See more
Having rescued Riley and after getting Oz out of his cell in the initiative, Buffy and the gang get into the elevator. As the elevator door closes, you can see the handle on the right hand side used for pulling the door open, and the fingers of the crew member pushing the door closed. See more

It was stupid to think that you'd just be... waiting.
I was waiting. I feel like some part of me will always be waiting for you. Like if I'm old and blue-haired, and I turn the corner in Istanbul and there you are, I won't be surprised. Because... you're with me, you know?
