Recap: The Terrible Trio made their way to New Orleans so Willow could get some magick back. But they run into Gideon and Barabas who were sent by the Tribunal to punish them.

Willow woke up in a room surrounded by all her loved ones, both alive and dead. She threw a confused look at the two men.

“They are here for the ritual for you to gain your magick again,” Gideon explained.

Oh! Like witnesses?”she bubbled.

“Sure,” Barabas drawled, astounded by the willful blindness of the young redhead. For someone so intelligent, she had tremendous moments of sheer foolishness. Oh well, it wasn’t his problem; he’d just enjoy this sanctioned torture.

“So, are you ready to begin?” Gideon asked, giving her one last chance to change her fate.

Which she promptly ignored in her enthusiasm. “You bet your booties I am!”

“Okay, then stand in the circle,” Barabas commanded her.

Willow quickly made her way to the place indicated and the ritual started. Then she noticed the oddest thing: as she felt the magicks pouring into her, the people around her began to slump. The first to fall was Jesse, followed by Jenny Calendar and Oz. Then Xander went down and finally Tara.

When it was over, she demanded stupidly, “What happened to them?”

“Where did you think we would get the power to strengthen you?” Gideon shot back, annoyed. “You wanted power; there had to be payment for it.”

“But I didn’t want it like this,” she pouted.

“That’s your problem, not ours,” Barabas taunted heartlessly. “Now go away!”

Suddenly she and Kennedy were back in Sunnydale, standing in front of Buffy, Giles, the coven leaders and Buffy’s new friends. ‘She needs to pay for making me do this!’ Willow screamed in her head as she grabbed her lover’s hand and faced the group defiantly.

“Willow, what are you doing here? And how did you teleport without your powers? You know the Tribunal won’t allow you to defy them,” Katherine warned her.

“It won’t matter!” she yelled at them, “What’s important is that Buffy loses her powers to Kennedy. She’ll make a much better Slayer than that blonde bitch!”

She reached out to grab Buffy’s power and was instantly rejected. She re-doubled her efforts and, in doing so, began the loop that drained her and Kennedy of their lifeforces.

The last thing she saw before the darkness consumed her was the identical looks utter disappointment on Buffy and Giles’ faces.

A/N: Next…Kennedy gets hers.
