I didn't want to officially sign up for the Trapped challenge because life is insanely busy right now but I had an idea and needed to write it out. I realized while writing that there is no way Buffy and Spike wouldn't be able to escape their Potential-made prison so they sort of go from being trapped in the literal sense to being trapped by their own consciences / need to resolve a few things. Close enough? 
 
Canonically, this sits between 7.14 and 7.15. And I borrowed a line from 3.08.
