Storyline

Joyce faints while at home, and while the gang is at the hospital, Dawn discovers that Riley's heartbeat is off the charts, but Riley ignores it. When Buffy enlists the Initiative's help, Riley gets angry and runs, and he eventually admits to Buffy that he's afraid they'll make him a normal guy, causing her to lose interest in him. She manages to get him to the Initiative doctor, only to find that Spike has forced the doctor to remove his chip... Written by Alex

Is A New Romance Beginning?
17 September 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While patrolling in the cemetery, Buffy meets Riley and Spike and becomes upset with their presences. On the next morning, Giles shows the exercise room that he built in the back of his store for the training of Buffy. Meanwhile Harmony looks for a hideout in Spike's place, and she is manipulated by him to kill Buffy. Joyce faints in the kitchen and goes to the emergency of a hospital, but she is apparently OK. Dawn plays with an intern's stethoscope and finds that Riley has a severe tachycardia, but he does not accept to be treated. Buffy contacts Grant and he brings Goodman and Brown, from the Initiative, trying to convince or force Riley to go under examination with a doctor. However, Spike and Harmony breaks into the facility to force the doctor to remove the chip implanted in his head.

In this episode, the most surprising scene is the incoherent romance between Buffy and Spike, fortunately only in his head. The "Barbie" Harmony and Spike are responsible for the funniest lines of this episode; I have not found any explanation for the appearance of Dawn in this Season yet; and Buffy, worried with Riley, convinces him to be operated. Spike having wet dreams with Buffy is absurd, but very funny. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Fora de Controle" ("Out of Control")
