Xander: I ripped that man apart to create you. I won't undo it.

Xander: You're good at surprises. It's exciting.

Narration(Xander): She doesn't say anything. She doesn't have to.

Narration(Xander): That veil of dulled sensation drops like it never had been. Under it I can't even breathe it hurts so much.

Narration(Xander): Underneath it all, she doesn't like me all that much. Underneath it all she'd rather kill me than talk about it.

Narration(Xander): And if it's all an act...and I didn't know... wel that gives me...hope...more hope than I've had in years.

Kore: I can teach you a thing or two about pain, Ves Xander.

Xander: I doubt it.

Narration(Xander): It's been an exceptionally pleasant evening in the scheme of things.

Author Notes:

Would you like a lozenge for that broken heart?

So due to wildfires the power company has announce they're shutting things down from Wednesday 'until the danger has passed'. I'm posting early. wish me luck!

Episode Recap:

Well it seems like Kore’s done. She pushes Xander away, goes to get that symbolic red jacket that…Xander himself made for her….and puts it on. Xander tells her definite no on Shane. For his own reasons. Then he goes back to her earlier assertion that all he wanted was entertainment, that may be true, but she is entertaining to him. She’s fascinating to him. In response Kore lets down some kind of mental discipline, she’s doing what she wants, rather than playing the game and what she wants is to leave. So Xander starts having literal heart attack, take your statin pills dude, not really he always feels things from people, obligate empath. She can cripple him just by hating him. Is may be that Xander is looking for someone to defeat him more than anything, despite that grimace, he’s feeling hope for the first time in years. Then Kore drops a different voice bubble. Seems to echo I hope? Last time it happened, she flipped his desk and literally knocked him a few. Xander is immediately consumed with an uncontrollable coughing fit. Kore leaves, and Xander doesn’t follow. But for Xander this apparently counts as a hot date.
