Immediately after the events of "Through the Looking Glass," princess Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) learns that although the head and body of the Host (Andy Hallett) have been separated, he won't actually die until his body is desecrated. With help from Loren's quite animated noggin and the Groosalugg (Mark Lutz), she manages to rescue the rest of the Host's body from the defilement chamber and have it smuggled -- unharmed -- back to the Deathwok Clan. Meanwhile, Wesley (Alexis Denisof) and Gunn (J. August Richards) get involved in the battle between the warriors of the repressive Covenant of Trombli and some human rebels. Elsewhere, Fred (Amy Acker) and Angel (David Boreanaz) survive an attack from the Covenant's warriors and reconnect with Wes, Gunn, and the rebels. Wes now firmly in charge, he plans a stealth attack on the Covenant despite his certainty that some of his men will die -- and the knowledge that Angel will have to revert to his uncontrollable demon form to battle the Groosalugg (Mark Lutz). Back at the castle, a smitten Cordy learns from Groo that when they consummate their passion, her visions will pass into his half-demon body. Committed to her sacred task, she reluctantly refuses to "cum-shuk," then suffers a vision of Groo battling a monster, unaware that it's actually Angel he'll fight. The rebels attack, Groo and Angel duke it out non-fatally, and Angel gains control of his demon half. In the end, the Covenant is overthrown, democracy is established in Pylea, and Cordy bids her otherworldly lover goodbye. Thanks to the combined intellectual firepower of Wes and Fred, the team (including a fully restored Loren) returns to earth -- where Willow (Alyson Hannigan) informs them of Buffy's death. Originally broadcast May 22, 2001, on the WB network, "There's No Place Like Plrtz Glrb" marked season two, episode 22 of the supernatural comedy drama.
