The End and A Beginning
It doesn't occur to him that there might be something odd about starting a conversation with the words 'Spike says you have my plates', but there's certainly something odd about the response he gets.
"I don't know what… It wasn't… Ooh, I knew he was still evil! Wait 'til I see him next week, I'll-"
It wasn't difficult to get the details out of Andrew, it only cost Xander continued custody of the purloined plates.
He was on a plane an hour later, in LA two after that.
Another hour saw him standing in the lobby of Wolfram and Hart.
Don't even think about getting dressed and leaving, Harris, not after that… unexpected reunion scene. Demon girl wasn't kidding about that Viking thing, was she?
And don't go working yourself up into some huge ball of denial. There's no way that was the first time you've ever had a cock in your mouth. 'Course, your technique could do with a bit of fine-tuning, but we can sort that out once I've had a word with the poof about getting you on the payroll.
Keep the blankets warm, pet, I'll be back with breakfast. You're going to need the energy.
