Oz's (Seth Green) band, Dingoes Ate My Baby, is playing at the Bronze when Harmony (Mercedes McNab) comes over to Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and shows her what she's been up to over the summer: vamping. Oz and Willow fend her off, but not before she threatens that her boyfriend is going to get them. The next night, Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is hanging out at a party with her new crush, Parker (Adam Kaufman), when she catches Harmony and her boyfriend, Spike (James Marstens), with a victim. She chases them and fights with Harmony, who lets it slip that Spike is back in Sunnydale looking for the Gem of Amarra -- a charm that makes vampires immune to sunlight and death. Later, Buffy returns to the party where she and Parker make passionate love. The next morning, Parker promises to call her and leaves. After waiting all day for a call, it becomes clear to Buffy that Parker used her -- causing future depression and self-doubt. In a crossover plot line with the spin-off series Angel ("In the Dark") Buffy takes the Gem of Amara from Spike and tells Oz, whose band is going to tour in Los Angeles, to deliver the stone to Angel (David Boreanaz) -- for obvious reasons.
