Buffy becomes familiar with the Initiative and begins to work with them although they are still unaware of her true power as a Slayer. After Buffy abandons her friends at the Bronze for a mission with the Initiative, Buffy and Riley consummate their relationship unaware that they are being watched on a hidden camera by Walsh. Meanwhile, Giles and the rest of the gang remove a tracking device the commandos shot into Spike's back.
Buffy's presence is sowing strife among the Initiative and Professor Walsh fears that Buffy will endanger her ultimate project and sends her on a mission which would certainly kill one of the Commandos, but not our Buffy. Walsh tries to make Riley believe that Buffy has gotten herself killed but Buffy appears on the com-cam monitors and announces that Walsh will soon know what a Slayer really is.
Riley storms out of the Initiative and Walsh retreats to her secret lab, room 314 only to be killed by her pet project Adam.
