Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Out of My Mind

When Joyce suffers a brief episode that puts her in the hospital, it's discovered that Riley is in danger because of the medication he was given during his time with the Initiative.

When Spike hears that an Initiative doctor has been called in, he takes it as an opportunity to get his inhibitor chip out of his head, so he can finally be rid of the Slayer.

Buffy: I've got a proposition for you.
