Spike goes on his mercenary mission to Sacramento with the "memory correcting" pills that Fred designed to ensure that Connor and the family Angel placed him will not begin to forget the memories that Wolfram and Hart created for them. It's horrible. He has to dress-up as a "TGI Fridays" waiter. Also, Connor has actually already remembered his real identity and tries to kill Spike. Spike is able to save himself by being a more experienced fighter but also by letting Connor know he is not at all Angel's ally and he tells Connor exactly what is going on and what Angel has paid him to do.
They bond of Angel bashing and issues of lost loves. When Connor claims his life is a lie Spike tells him about Dawn and how real of fake memories and family make you who you are.

Connor asks Spike to dose him with the drug already. Instead Spike gives Connor the pills and tells him it is his choice and leaves him to decide.
Angel (who has been spying on this encounter the entire time) attacks Spike and they fight about who is more of an a-hole with snarky talk and violence.

Still she gets to do what was too hard for her before—Slay with friends and not go psycho. She has Kennedy and Amanda helping her out. They aren't even pissed Willow had to retract the Slayer-Sharing Spell because it was too dangerous. Maybe things are looking up.

Faith reveals to her boyfriend she took in the power from the Shadowmen that Buffy refused during the apocalypse with The First when she believed Spike and Buffy were not going to help. Magic is so damned unpredictable. Who knew it would lay dormant in her when it was suppose to work and now, over a year later, literally come out of her as an angry demon mass leaving her feeling weak
And it's getting worse…The demon rose out of her and killed a guy, a human guy, but it was cool since he was a piece of shit that was going to kill everyone. What wasn't going to kill them was that the demon rising inside Faith. It/Faith had protected them, but her demon was going to kill her, until Spike brought her back. It was crazy. He touched her and a white light came out of him. Robin wasn't too happy about this. It was just too weird for Faith to feel about it one way or another.
What pissed her off was some really powerful, usually neutral, Demon Clan, The Rhoshobis, has Faith and Spike mixed up with Buffy and Angel from B's High School days. So of course, The Demons send assassins to kill them to save the world. Just what she needs, to get her ass kicked for something she actually didn't do while she was trying to live the straight life. Still everyone won't drop the demon thing. Robin wants it out of her now. Spike pointed out how the demon wasn't so bad since it saved their lives.

Spike really starts to tests Faith's last nerve. He argues with Wes when he doesn't know anything saying that the demon isn't a problem for Faith since Spike can heal her. Wes said he feared that Spike was healing Faith with his soul, and that his soul was impure due to the fact that he is a vampire. Wes believes that the joining of Spike's demon soul and Faith's Shadow Demon will cause nothing but bad news. He also believes that this is why The Rhoshobis a normally peaceful demon clan now want to kill Faith and Spike. When the two sing for Lorne he says that people will die if Faith cannot trust Spike.

She can't become some evil disgusting monster that keeps sucking the life out of people and that is what will happen if she keeps letting Spike heal her. Spike disagrees a lot. He would do anything to get Faith to abandon the plan of removing the shadow demon with dangerous magic. Too bad he has to do it from Xander's apartment since Faith won't see him since she was told the truth about Spike and Robin's mother. Faith continues to work on her relationship with Robin.

Wes has plans to reorganize The Watcher's Council together. Not that he isn't busy enough with Wolfram & Hart. But, things are falling into place.

Just you're not so average misguided vampire that thinks he's the only thing to save Faith rather than kill her. How far will he go to try to convince Wes of his delusion? Furthermore, he brought a friend—Angel's son. They begin to torture Wesley. They think this will make him tell Faith to rethink the spell. Of course, the tenacious vampire found out and brought up the Orpheus incident with Faith. Spike vowed that he would never let Wesley hurt Faith again for "his greater good." Wesley stands firm tells them if they have to kill him so be it. He knows that Faith doing the spell will be the only thing to bring her the peace and happiness she deserves.

Connor can remember just how dangerous Wes's help can be as he was taken to a Hell dimension as a baby with his "help." Before he can say this Angel and Gunn come in with some Wolfram and Hart security guard. Connor is furious when Angel thinks he's just being manipulated by Spike. Connor decides to prove just how much he's acting on his own volition to protect Faith, and goes to threaten the unconscious body of Wes. He then realizes one of the security people attempted to kill him, but Spike jumped in front of the bullet. Spike was shot out the window but Angel pulled him to the ledge to safety. Wesley comes to and tells Spike that in order to save Faith his way he would have to violate her wishes and physically force himself on her. Spike then decided to let Wesley do the spell as Faith wants, but says if anything goes wrong he'll be there. Angel wants to hold Spike prisoner, but Wes actually tells Angel to release Spike since he is no longer a threat to saving Faith.

Despite the warlocks best efforts Faith begins to die. He claims it's because Faith is fighting the spell.

He revives Faith, but she was able to break away from him before the healing is complete. Spike tells her she knows this is right and tries to grab her to complete the healing. She argues and even begs him to leave, saying she doesn't want to become a disgusting evil thing.

When Giles begins to update her vaguely on what happened to Spike and Faith and the Hellmouth, Buffy thinks Giles is telling her that Faith has turned evil again and tried to take Spike's soul. When Giles clarifies that Faith sacrificed her Slayer power to save Spike's life, Buffy is immediately concerned for Faith and tells Giles that she should go back and help the other, now powerless, Slayer. Giles assures Buffy everything is fine, and that they even have a "new fighter" on Sunnydale (Connor.) Giles brushes off Buffy's questions about the new fighter and welcomes her to stay in England longer. Buffy decided to take Giles up on his offer. She still can't imagine Faith without power and assumes the other girl must be so depressed.
Meanwhile, Faith is with Spike at Angel's Santa Monica vacation house. Trashing bathrooms, getting out of handcuffs, and discussing power dynamics between sex games with a punk vampire named Spike who is still claiming he loves her even though the drama is over.

Even meanwhile(er), Wood has a meeting with Alistair Crowley where the warlock shows him all the things Faith and Spike are up to.

Faith uses her mad skillz to show him that isn't necessary.
Crowley and Wood try to get Wesley in on their plan to put a chip back into Spike's head. Wes realizes Crowley wants him in on the plan because that would ensure that it would be hidden from Angel, who might not like it. Crowley mentions he is getting the surviving Counsel back together.

2x03 Glass House Part One "Forget Me Not Series- Chapter 20"
Buffy is enjoying her time with Giles and his girlfriend Olivia (from "Hush) despite the fact that Spike just had a very rude phone conversation with her where Faith managed to somehow rub her new relationship with Spike in Buffy's face even though Faith didn't know it was Buffy on the phone. Buffy feels guilty for being a hypocrite for being mad that Faith is clearly using Spike for sex. Olivia helps Buffy realize she has a right to her own feelings. Buffy realizes one of those feelings is that she wants to stay in England longer. Giles seems distracted about something and suddenly announces he is leaving for a few days, but assures Buffy and Olivia he will be right back. Meanwhile back at the summer house Spike is upset when he learns a little more about Faith's abusive past. He has a flash of wanting to go back and kill these men that hurt her. Again, Faith quickly distracts him from this desire with down-playing jokes and sex, until his only desire is to give her affection. This seems to be what Faith wants too until Angel and Connor show up and she is ready to prove herself to Angel as someone who is still going to fight The Mission hard. Angel isn't really happy about the state of his vacation house. Spike isn't too happy that Connor accidentally seeing Faith's breasts but he quickly gets over it as it's clear Faith belongs to him. Spike then reminds Angel that nothing belongs to him and that the house belongs to Wolfram and Hart.
2x04 Glass House Part Two "Forget Me Not Series- Chapter 22"
Connor and Spike start talking about how they beat-up Wes to try to stop him from doing the spell with Crowley that removed her Shadow Demon and Slayer Power. Faith then realizes that Spike and Connor were the ones that beat-up Wes so badly. She believes that Spike convinced Connor this was a good idea and she is livid. Connor tries to tell Faith that Spike did not use him and that Spike and Faith are the only people that never used him. This leads to Connor and Angel to have a simultaneous argument about the state of their relationship. Spike points out that though he now realizes that Wes was doing what he thought was right the spell would have killed Faith if Spike hadn't shown up to save her. Faith points out that if Faith hadn't done the spell with Crowley and Wes that she would have killed Spike as he burned his soul into her. Spike tells her that he is not like Angel, that he wanted to die for her, and that he wasn't going to let Wes do magic on Faith in order to "save his own ass" like when Wes convinced Faith to use Orpheus to basically die for Angel. Faith becomes even more livid and tells Spike that everything she did was her own idea. She believes that Spike beating on Wes and influencing Connor "erased all the good she ever did as a Slayer." Faith tells Spike they can no longer be together due to this. Spike scoffs at this and says she is only making up excuses to not be loved due to all the abuse and manipulation she has had from men in the past. Faith tells Connor she wants him to come back to Sunnydale with her, and it's best her and Spike are apart for awhile. Connor and Angel stop short at their argument realizing it eerily as similar themes, or maybe they stop because Spike goes nuts and tried to follow Faith out into the sun. Angel stops him physically and dryly as he is not impressed with Spike's dramatics. Connor tried to apologize to Spike who gone from raging to weeping to drinking in the 30 seconds of Faith's exit. Spike tells Connor he's wasting time and he should get back to where Faith wants him. Connor asks Angel to watch over Spike in his emotionally volatile state.

Spike has a score to settle. He knows John is the root reason why Faith rejects his real love and lets Watcher's use her as vampire bait. He'll kill the no good bastard, and then he'll go to the next bastard that hurt her and the next…It will be good for his soul, but it really is all for her. Spike hadn't lost his touch when it comes to torturing and killing, John Devero goes down easy. Spike is sure his latest "daughter," Reese Devero, will be happy to be rid of him.

No, naturally Wes killed Knox and Fred is livid about. For a moment the boys both commiserate being in the same situation with women. When Spike brings up he heard Wes called his cyborg "dad," Wes tells Spike he is nothing like him—out on a random kill spree just because Faith broke up with him. He tells Spike he is out of control. Spike becomes furious that Wes doesn't realize that Spike had just killed the most abusive man from Faith's past. All of his rage about Wes not caring enough about Faith resurfaces and he begins to choke him. Wood saves the day with more tazering of Spike. Wes thinks about this plan to chip Spike.

He feels even worse than an idiot when Sahjahn gives him something that makes him feel powerful, and then tells Connor it is the Slayer's blood. Sahjahn tells Connor he is truly a vampire and implies that giving him the Slayer's blood awakened it. Connor refuses to believe this is true.
Faith then rescues Connor with her "left-over" Slayer skill of sharp shooting with the wooden tip bullets Connor made.

The girl is brilliant but not as brilliant as Fred (who knows nothing about the chipping Spike plan or Wesley's current dealings with the government.) Wesley knows he has to keep secrets and keep one step ahead if he is going to keep Fred (and everyone) safe since they all made this deal with Wolfram and Hart. Shelley Walsh is overly fearful when Spike comes to and has a verbal showdown with everyone in the room including Walsh, Wood and Wes's father. None of Spike's tirades are as scathing as the one he makes to Wes while Wes's father simultaneously nags him. Spike and Wes's father both come to the point that Wes did not kill Faith. Spike accuses Wesley of secretly wanting to kill her after she was redeemed for humiliating him. Wesley's father believes Wes should have killed Faith when she went rogue and when he didn't he humiliated himself. Both berate Wes for not being a better man. Wesley says that he is working towards something larger and patients is needed (though we don't know to who.) Shelley Walsh them loses her professional demeanor and knocks Spike out while spouting obscenities about Spike and The Slayer. She tells her team of scientists to do a code blue and that "wipe out everything" in Spike.
Later, Wesley meets with Spike, who doesn't seem to make that much sense after his torture. However, Wes explains that he had to allow the government and Watchers to capture Spike to learn of their true agenda in order to protect everyone. Wes says that Faith is in danger with The Watchers and this government group teaming up. He tells Spike to leave and to protect Faith at all costs, which Wes knows he will do.
Then Wes runs into Giles who is also "undercover" with The Watchers. Giles is impressed when Wes getting this far. However, this is short lived when Wes tells Giles he let Spike go. Giles demands to know why Wes hadn't read the full report Giles gave him as it explains Spike is now a dangerous barely aware killing machine whose first agenda is to kill Faith.
2x08 Get Him Back "Forget Me Not Series- Chapter 26"
After finding out from Sahjahn that The Rhoshobi demons made a deal with the government to capture Spike, Faith decides to storm into The Sunnydale University compound to rescue him. Willow, Xander, Connor and Kennedy accompanied Faith on to the Sunnydale campus. Willow and Xander are worried as Faith seems to have no plan other than storming into the compound with guns. Even though most of the guns are loaded with tranquilizers some are loaded with wooden-tipped bullets (designed by Connor) that will kill vampires and people. Things become tense between Willow and Faith when Faith doesn't seem to care if people get in her way in rescuing Spike. Willow becomes increasingly angry about Faith's flippant attitude and calls her "twisted" and "selfish." Kennedy and Connor stick up for Faith. Faith does not seem to be hurt by this in the least. She actually congratulates Willow for speaking her mind. She does become upset, however, when Willow reveals that Buffy often chose to plan and wait whenever Spike was kidnapped.
Tired of the arguing, Xander goes off and immediately comes back saying he found Spike sitting in the dark under a tree watching them. Xander also says that he thinks something is really wrong with Spike and that he thinks someone tried to make him into "a new Adam." Not knowing who Adam was Faith doesn't listen. Instead, she is livid and thinks Spike is just having fun watching them fight. She runs over and begins to yell at him. When Spike starts talking incoherently and tells her to go away she thinks he is drunk. Ignoring Xander's warnings she goes to drag Spike off the ground and he smacks her and continues to make no sense.
Faith starts to realize something is really wrong with Spike. He demands that she runs while he grabs her arm so hard he begins to crush it. As he comes into the light she can see his head has been shaved and it has a large micro-chip embedded into it. He then takes her sword and chops his own hand off that is crushing her arm. Faith is able to grab Spike's hand He talks about being triggered and Xander recognizes the word and drags Faith away. Connor then is able to shoot Spike with a tranquilizer gun.
Things then continue to be tense with Faith and Willow in the car as Faith demands Willow use magic to fix what is wrong with Spike. When they get Spike back to Kennedy and Faith's house he raises again only this time he seems to completely be acting as a machine as visible liquid metal courses through his veins. Connor jumps into subdue him and when it is clear Connor is losing the fight Faith shoots Spike right through the heart with one of the wooden tipped bullets. Faith seems numb, but she assures Connor that she would never want to sacrifice him for a chance to save Spike. Before anyone can grieve too much they realize Spike's body is still there. He becomes conscious again and tries to talk to Faith. He is able to talk to Faith a little more clearly about how much he's suffering for being forced to hurt her. He shows her he cannot die as he tries to stake himself. He then takes the tranquilizer gun and shoots himself in the head several times until he is no longer conscious. While Faith is shaky around Spike's severed hand Willow is perfectly calm and able to sew it back on and tells her she can repair it with a spell. As the two women talk it becomes clear to Willow just how close Faith truly is to Spike. Willow then begins to compliment Faith on her willingness to protect Connor. Faith shrugs off her compliments saying she knows she is selfish because the only thing she cares about is getting Spike back. Willow insists that Faith is not selfish and attempts to tell Faith she is indeed a good person when she hears helicopters. Faith knows it's "the government guys that did this to Spike" and she grabs a gun and tells Willow that she is going to kill "everyone of these mother fuckers before they get Spike again." Willow gets concerned.
