Some Xander bashing and major Riley and Angel bashing take place in this episode. 
I hope you don't mind but I'm gonna put a lot of my personal venting into this chapter. 

I'm gonna address Angel siring Lawson as well as stuff dealing with Seasons 6 and 7 and the comics in future chapters. Rest assured, I will take care of things. For now, I'm basically gonna do a past/present/future thing with Buffy and her love life.


Dedicated to Jodie aka The_Bronze. Thanks for the feedback.
