Things aren't always as they seem

Library. Buffy walks in, saying she found the glove, but upon seeing Giles, Willow, Oz, Xander, and Cordelia staring at her, she wonders, "What's with all the tragedy masks?" Geez, and Angel's not even there. Giles asks her to sit down, and tells her that they know Angel is alive. Willow says that no one's blaming her, but that she needs help. Buffy says it's not what they think. Xander: "Hope not. 'Cause I think you're harboring a vicious killer." Great. "Dead Man's Party" redux. Willow admonishes him to use only statements beginning with "I think" or "I feel." Cordy: "Fine! Here's one. I feel worried. About me! Last time around, Angel barely laid a hand on Buffy. He was way more interested in killing her friends!" I'll give her that. Direct, and not self-righteous. Just like when she dumps Xander. Oh wait, that's the next episode. Xander keeps riding the self-righteous train until Buffy snits that she doesn't need an intervention. Giles: "Oh, don't you? You must have known it was wrong seeing Angel, or you wouldn't have hidden it from all of us." Buffy, less assuredly, says she was going to tell them, but she didn't know why he came back, and she thought it was better to wait. Xander: "For what? For Angel to go psycho again the next time you give him a 'happy'?" Buffy says that she and Angel aren't a couple, but Oz points out that they were kissing. Buffy can't believe Xander spied on her, but Cordy defends him. Buffy says she's not putting them in any danger. "If I thought for a second that Angel was going to hurt anyone --" Xander butts in: "You'd stop him. Like you did last time with Miss Calendar." I take back what I said before about kidding that I wanted Xander dead. What a fucking asshole. Just because you're somewhat funny and sympathetic one minute doesn't give you the right to turn into an insufferable dickhead the minute the chips are down. And, way to have any sensitivity for Giles's feelings. That was just tacky and awful. Hope you feel better about cheating on your girlfriend now! Buffy's face reflects my rant. Willow: "Buffy, I feel that when it comes to Angel, you can't see straight. And that's why we're all gonna help you face this." Buffy tries to defend Angel again, and the situation deteriorates until Willow panickedly says, "Giles, no one's doing the 'I' statements!" Giles calls a halt to the bickering, saying that Buffy's actions, "however ill-advised, can be understood." He says that their priority is to retrieve and destroy the glove. He dismisses them, and walks into his office.
