Willow wakes up slowly to find herself in a darkened underground chamber. The last thing she remembers is terror. Now she feels hunger, accompanied by a new sense of power.
“Welcome,” purrs Darla when she sees she’s awake. Jesse smiles at her, looking more confident than he ever did in life.
“Willow?” She turns to see Xander lying beside her and she can tell from the sound of his heartbeat that he’s still alive. “Will, I’m so sorry.” She feels strangely calm as he rambles on about how he tried to save her.
“Bored now,” she says, and bites him.
