Episode 49 finds Faith (Eliza Dushka) descending deeper into her slayer psychosis, causing Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) to have a nightmare. In it, Buffy is drowning with the dead Finch (Jack Plotnick); she awakens to find that Finch's body has been found, and the Mayor (Harry Groener) is vowing retribution. Later, Buffy breaks down sobbing in front of Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and tells her how Faith killed Finch, a moment that brings them together after their protracted falling out. At the urging of Willow, Buffy tries to tell Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) the truth -- but Faith has falsely accused Buffy of the crime. Giles later tells Buffy he did not believe Faith, but that this kind of accident is not uncommon with slayers. In the process, everyone finds out that Xander (Nicholas Brendan) had sex with Faith.
