Next week on an all-new episode of The Chosen...
Fade from black to a shot of Willow in her darkened bedroom, perched on the edge of the bed. She's talking, though we hear no words. Her gaze is distant. Dissolve to Tara, standing several feet away, listening with a pained expression her face. Suddenly her hand flies to her mouth and she looks ill.
Fade to the kitchen, obviously late at night. Buffy is glaring openly at Tara.
Buffy: I don't believe you're her.
Tara: I know.
Buffy: I'm not going to let you spit on her memory.
...exists in balance.
Cut to Xander, placing various interesting-looking items on a shelf.
Xander: I just feel so torn, y'know? On the one hand, I'm totally with Buffy.
Flash to a shot of Buffy, yelling angrily. Flash back to Xander.
Xander: But then you start talkin' to Tara ...
Flash to Tara, sitting on the couch and smiling at Willow next to her.
Xander (V.O.): ...and god, it's like nothing's changed.
Without balance ...
Cut to Xander in the training room in his Puffy suit. He's being punched repeatedly by Hazel. He doesn't look happy about it.
Xander: That's it!
He lashes out, actually busting out of the padding and hitting Hazel, sending her flying across the room.
Cut to Buffy and Xander locked in a confrontation at Slayer Central. Xander pushes her and she smacks into a wall, falling unconscious.
Xander: Well thank god for the sound of silence.
...the center cannot hold.
A series of quick images: Faith struggling against someone, Buffy looking like she's two steps away from crying, a computer screen reading "Vital Records, Sunnydale, CA, May 2002", Willow staring coldly at Buffy, Tara thrusting her hand out as she performs a spell, Kennedy stalking dangerously toward Tara, a car hurtling through the air mere inches away from smashing into a wide-eyed Willow.
