It has been a few months
since Buffy died, but her friends have worked hard and now have developed a
decent fighting tactic. The gang are fighting, while Willow stands atop of a
mausoleum, and guides them, using telepathy. Complete with Buffybots help,
things go fine and everyone survives, unlike the last battle we saw!
and Tara now live in the Summer’s House, along with the Buffybot and Dawn. No
one (apart from the gang) seems to know about Buffy’s death, including her
father. He has been contacting Dawn, but never talked to Buffy. Everyone is keen
on keeping it that way. If he does find out about Buffy, Dawn will have to move
out and live with Hank.
demonstrates the “subtle” differences between her and the real one, at
Dawn’s Parent/Teacher Day, although she doesn’t blow her cover!
At the Magick Box, Anya is double-checking all the records, for Giles, who is
talking about moving back to England, yet again. Anya is going nuts because
Giles has promised to leave the store to her, but he still hasn’t left. Also,
Xander won’t let her announce the engagement, which is just adding to the
gang (not including Spike who is babysitting Dawn and Giles), are at Xander’s
apartment. When Buffybot is revealed to be a vampire while she is out on patrol,
she returns to Willow, letting the vamp get away. She needs big reconstruction.
Back at Xander’s, Anya brings out the Urn of Osiris (from E-Bay), a one and
only magical object, which will help in a ritual to bring Buffy back. Xander and
Tara are freaking out about doing it, but they all agreed to do it a while ago.
Willow is determined she can accomplish it. They have decided not to inform,
Dawn, Giles or Spike, because they won’t understand. They all agree to go
ahead with it, Willow persuading them with a tear-filled speech. “Buffy was
killed by mystical energy, and we don’t know what happened to her soul…she
could be trapped in some sort of hell dimension, like Angel was…suffering
eternal torment just because she saved us! I’m not going to leave her
at the Summer’s House, Dawn awakens and wanders into “Buffy’s” room and
crawls into the bed, hugging the plugged up Buffybot, pretending she is the real
Sometime the next day, Giles is testing the Buffybots reflexes after he repairs.
He, like Dawn, is treating her like an almost real person. Anya reminds Giles
that it’s not the real Buffy, which sends Giles into a bad mood. Anya leaves,
and he starts to wander, out loud, if Buffy would have been better off without
him. Buffybot, trying to help him, although not understand. Trying to explain
how he has always been helpful, he tries to explain he was a perfect watcher,
doing what any good watcher should do, but her got his slayer killed…She is
gone and he has done his job. Buffybot still trying to help, whispers
innocently, “Then why are you still here?”.
vampire who escaped, enters a biker bar (a demon bar), and explains to them all
what he saw. The Buffybot is a robot, full of wires! The leader of the gang
kills the vampire anyway (who has no fashion sense. a Hanson t-shirt?
Puh-leeze!). The gang ride their motorbikes to invade Sunnydale.
Willow prepares for the ritual, snapping a fawn’s neck, collecting the blood,
she returns to the Magick Box, seemingly shaken. Everyone, and I mean everyone,
is nervous until Anya discovers the farewell note from Giles. The group speed
off to the airport, sporting farewell presents (Tara gives him a little finger
puppet and says “Grrr Argh”), they all hug in tears. He waves once more and
boards the plane, leaving them with “Be careful…Please”.
Tara, Willow and Xander arrive at Buffy’s grave. They begin the ritual. With a
whole ritual (Willow praying to some Egyptian underworld god named Osiris,
getting tested by bugs under her skin, cuts and a snake out of her mouth),
freaking everyone out.
bikers are trashing Sunnydale, including Dawn’s neighbourhood. Spike who is
babysitting Dawn, hears/see’s them and attempts to keep Dawn safe. Buffybot
fights a little bit, but is damaged, and sets off for Willow. Willow is in the
most intense/important part of the ritual when the Buffybot arrives (with the
demons on her tail). Destroying the urn, it causes Willow to fall to the ground
unconscious. The demons nearly completely dismember Buffybot, while the 4
scoobies fight their way into the woods. Assuming the spell didn’t work, Buffy
transforms (from a decomposing body into her whole self), she
awakens…struggling inside of her coffin, still in the ground.
As the Bikers are bashing
the Buffybot, the four scoobies are split up (Willow and Xander, Tara and Anya)
as they all try to make their way to the Magick Shop. Willow and Xander take
refuge in an alley. Willow is still reasonably hurt from the ritual.
Buffy, now alive, digs her
way out of her own grave…
comes about, and decides she wants to try the spell again. The idea that
Buffy’s gone, finally hits home, as Xander explains to the Willow the urns
broken and “She’s really gone…”.
Back at the Summer’s residence, Spike is yelling at Dawn to stay away from the
windows and stay down, as he searches for weapons. He decides there’s no way
to stay safe in the house, and they leave, but not before Spike promises Dawn,
to protect her. No matter what.
digs her way out of the ground, and sits, staring in bewilderment at her
headstone. Disorientated, Buffy starts to wander the streets of Sunnydale,
looking at the disaster. She is barely able to register her surroundings, as her
vision is blurred.
and Anya reach the Magick Box first, and Tara casts a spell to help Willow come
to her. They finally arrive, and then leave again to go find Dawn and Spike, who
aren’t picking up the phone at the house. Anya tries to talk everyone not to
go, but Willow is determined, since they “have no choice”. As Spike and Dawn
are trying to stay out of demon
sight, Spike comments how it would be fun to join in on the fun.
and Buffy see each other, as she is completely dismembered. Buffy is spotted by
the lead demon, and she sets off, as he follows.
She runs into her friends, who take a while to realize she is the real Buffy.
Freaked out, she takes off again, and they find her in an alley, huddled against
a wall. They realise Buffy had to dig herself out of the grave. The demons
corner them, and Buffy goes into fighting mode, killing most of them. As Xander
tries to get close, Buffy freaks out again and runs off.
defeats the last demon (the leader), by attacking it with an axe, once it
returns to the tower, where she plunged to her death. Dawn and Spike find the
Buffybot who whispers to Dawn about Buffy still being alive. Dawn runs to the
tower, leaving Spike, yelling her name out. Dawn finds Buffy at the top of the
tower, who is seemingly about to jump. She tries to talk her down, but nothing
works. She makes one final plea. "You told me I have to be strong, and I
tried. But it's been so hard without you. I'm sorry. I promise
I'll do better. I will, if you're with me. Stay with me, please.
I need you to live". Buffy understands, and saves Dawn’s life once
again, as something nearly hits her (the tower is falling apart). They hug in a
sobbing fit, while Buffy stares off into space, Dawn finally has her sister
back…or does she?
