Anya returns, and, unbeknownst to anyone, as a vengeance demon. Unable to inflict pain on Xander herself, Anya tries to cajole his friends to wish up a proper punishment. Meanwhile, Spike is locked out from Buffy and is frustrated she won’t tell her friends about them. He then moves on to find a way to numb his pain.
