On the next all-new episode of The Chosen ...
Faith is walking away, a bag slung over her shoulder. Xander hurries to catch up.
Xander: What's up?
Faith: I gotta go.
Xander: Yeah, I got that much.
Faith shoves a dozen or so open letters at him. He reads them while she looks on.
Time heals all wounds.
Night. Faith knocks on a vaguely familiar door in thoroughly suburban neighborhood.
It opens to reveal a woman of indeterminate age, her face haggard and worn. She sees
Faith and her eyes narrow to slits.
A convenient lie we tell ourselves.
Faith (V.O.): I didn't mean to—
Man (V.O.): To what? To upset this family more than you already have?
A little girl is staring up at Faith with naked admiration, a fact that is visibly making Faith extremely uncomfortable.
Faith is about to learn the truth the hard way.
Man (V.O.): What did you want from us? Forgiveness? Absolution? Never.
A series of images:
The open window of a child's bedroom.
Faith vaulting from a railing and disappearing.
Buffy watching something with a worried expression.
Faith roughly grabbing the front of Xander's shirt.
Willow looking rejected as Tara walks away.
Faith in a defensive stance in the middle of the street, looking all around and seeing no one.
Man (V.O.): I hope you never know peace.
Fade to black.
Female Voice (V.O.): Will you know regret, I wonder?
There's the sound of shattering glass and an inarticulate, almost inhuman scream of rage.
It's soon drowned out by someone crying in agony.
