Outside the school, pandemonium is breaking out as police sirens wail. Willow sees a portal to a graveyard across the street. They walk over to it and face Giles' nightmare: Buffy's tombstone. Giles sinks to his knees, beside himself. A hand reaches out and grabs his wrist! Buffy climbs out of the dirt, brushing herself off. Oh, and another thing: [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie She's vamped]]. Giles tells her that he believes if they can awaken Billy, reality will shift back to normal. Buffy's shaken, but unstirred.

Chaos reigns in the hospital. Giles tries to rattle Billy awake. "That won't work," a child says. Giles looks up to see Billy's astral body standing nearby. Giles pleads with him to wake up, but the child tells him he has to hide from the Ugly Man. That does it; Buffy steps out into the hall to face the brute. Armed with the combined power of the Slayer and the vampire, she's finally able to overpower him. He slumps to the ground, stunned. Buffy tells Billy that he has to finish it: he must ''face his fear''. Billie walks hesitantly to the Ugly Man and peels back his face, restoring reality.

Back in the real world, Xander notices Billy's eyes fluttering, and he smiles as the child awakens. Giles is about to get a doctor, when Billy's baseball coach enters, calling Billy his "Lucky nineteen". Buffy and the gang realize that the coach is the culprit. Book 'em, Danno.
