Watchers Council – Rowena’s Bedroom – Night
Rowena lay in bed on her side. She turned to roll on her back and looked up at the ceiling in a blank stare. In one quick sweep, she threw the covers off and got up.
Watchers Council – Rowena’s Kitchen – Moments Later
She opened the door to her refrigerator and pulled out a pitcher, then reached in the cabinet above her for a glass. She poured some liquid from the container into the glass and returned the pitcher to the refrigerator. Grabbing some ice from the freezer, she dropped it into the glass and left the room with cup in hand, her face expressionless.
Taking a sip, she walked over to her living room window. After pulling the curtain back, she looked out across the lake with a weepy expression, before taking a deep breath and blowing it out slowly.
Watchers Council – Same Floor – Same Time
From her window, right next to Rowena’s Apartment, Willow stood in her pajamas. She looked out over the lake with a similar sad expression.
Alley – Night
Kennedy walked along a vacant street, stake at the ready. With a peculiar look, she turned around to see a young woman standing at the other end of the alley. Though Kennedy never moved her eyes, the woman suddenly disappeared from view. Then Kennedy closed her eyes, her face registering a pained grimace.
A human torso being struck with an axe.
An image of Xander yelling at someone.
A leg that has been separated at the knee.
A demon coming up behind to strike Willow, who is wearing a bandage on her forehead.
Two decapitated heads rolling to a stop, to reveal the faces of Xander and Willow.
A highway roadside, where two bodies appear to lie in various, disconnected parts, with a third split in half.
Looking up the length of the third, sliced-in-half body, its head is revealed to be Kennedy’s.
Watchers Council – Kennedy’s Bedroom – Same Time
Kennedy’s eyes shot open, and she bolted upright from her bed to look around the room. Her clock read 5:07 a.m. She ran a hand over her sweaty face.
Breathing hard, she collapsed back to her pillow, her eyes wide in shock and fright.
