Next week, on an all-new episode of The Chosen ...
Does a drowning man care who rescues him?
Everyone is assembled in the library, listening intently to Giles.
Giles: She's offered her assistance, and frankly, she does seem to be our strongest lead. But she wants one of us to come and get her.
Giles focuses on Tara. Everyone follows his gaze as Tara sits there, stunned.
Does a starving woman question her next meal?
Tara is in her room, packing. Willow stands in the doorway watching her.
Willow (V.O.): You're not gonna come back, are you?
Tara looks at Willow sadly, but doesn't respond.
Kennedy is behind the wheel, driving, with Tara in the front seat. They both look angry.
Kennedy: That's what gets me, because you won, and you didn't even want to play.
Tara glares at her darkly.
Tara: You have no idea what I want.
She pulls her sunglasses down and turns toward the window.
When you need help, does it matter the source?
A series of quick images:
Tara and Kennedy gasping as they swerve to miss something impossibly large that jumped in front of their car.
A shadowy figure standing on a nearby rooftop watching Xander and Willow below.
Kennedy looming over a surprised Tara as if to strike.
Hazel caught offguard as she's attacked by a vampire.
Tara smirking before she blows a handful of powder at someone.
Cut to Kennedy in the passenger seat, all but sneering.
Kennedy: God, do you always have to be so perfect?
Tara: Do you always have to be such a bitch?
Beat. Tara looks mortified as Kennedy blinks in surprise.
Kennedy: You've been wanting to say that for hours, haven't you?
