* DefensiveFeintTrap / DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Buffy grabs the Demon Mayor's attention, and holds up Faith's knife. She taunts him about stabbing Faith with it, then hightails it back into the school, with the enraged Olvikan in pursuit.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything / KissOfTheVampire: The scene of Buffy forcing Angel to drink her blood has an overt sexual vibe. There's a lot of thrusting going on, Buffy and Angel fall to the floor, Angel's making sounds of enormous ecstasy. While he's lying on top of her, she grabs a metal object for support, and it just crumples. She also wraps her legs around him, then spasms [[DestructoNookie kicking a table in half]].

They kiss. ...And it's the most forced, out-of-sync kiss imaginable. [[RecordNeedleScratch The dramatic romantic music stops]]. They pause, realizing it's not going so well. They give it another go. It's even worse than before. They give up.

Angel rushes Buffy to the hospital, then goes to use a payphone. In a nearby room, a doctor is telling the Mayor that Faith has broken bones, damage to the kidney, head trauma, and severe blood loss--there is almost no chance that she will ever awaken. The nurse comes in to tell the doctor about the other girl with severe blood loss. A lightbulb goes off. The Mayor realizes who it must be, walks into her room, and puts his hand over her mouth, trying to smother her and mvoes her head so the bite wound will open and she'l bleed. The nurse tries to stop him and calls for security. Angel bursts back in and yanks the Mayor away, causing a scene. The Mayor, [[MoodWhiplash all smiles agai]]n, dusts himself off and tells the onlookers the "show's ''not'' over -- but there will be a brief intermission." Angel grrs that he'll be there.

*** May be an ActorAllusion joke. Before Tony Head played Giles, he was widely recognised in Britain as "The guy from the Kenco coffee adverts."

Back in the library, Buffy has just finished describing her plan to the gang. Wesley enters, and Buffy tells him she's in no mood for orders and that the Council is no longer welcome, but he says he is there to help of his own volition; not on behalf of the Watcher's Council. He tells them the Ascension will be preceded by an eclipse, putting Angel "back in the game." Xander and Willow are to recruit other students for help, while everybody else is put on "volcano detail." Buffy instructs Giles to get "[[RuleOfThree weapons, weapons, weapons]]." In Giles' office, Angel tells Buffy that he's not going to say goodbye; when the whole thing is over, he's just going to go.

The students march in to the Graduation ceremony. A little way into the Mayor's speech, the sky goes dark. He doubles over in pain. Characteristically, he tries to continue with his upbeat speech. But to no avail. The Mayor suddenly morphs into a giant serpent/dragon thing.
