Faith, fresh from her coma, takes Xander hostage, hoping to lay a trap for Buffy. But when the Council's retrieval team comes for her, and she escapes by using the Draconian Katra on and switching bodies with her hostage, Xander is left to learn how the other half lives.
Then, Faith (in Xander's Body) ends up in L.A., which only makes a complicated situation even worse for Xander, the Scoobies, and Team Angel.
