Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 7, Episode
3: "Same Time, Same Place", Original air date: 10/8/02
We don't know who wrote
this; it will be replaced later.
We are at the airport, and the first shot of the
episode is of a clock (important to recall for later events).
Buffy, Xander, and Dawn are waiting for Willow to return from
England. Xander has a large sign which says "Welcome Back
Willow" written in yellow crayon. Buffy and Dawn seem to be
nervous about Willow returning, but Xander doesn't seem very
worried. He states that Giles wouldn't have let her come home if
she hadn't finished recovering from the black magic. Buffy
informs Xander that Willow hasn't finished, but that Giles felt
it was important for Willow to be back in Sunnydale. Eventually,
they realize that the gate has closed but Willow hasn't gotten
off the plane.
We again see a clock, which shows the exact same
time as it did at the beginning of the episode. The same events
which happened while we were watching Buffy, Xander, and Dawn
occur again, except this time we see Willow get off the plane -
but there is no sign of Buffy and the gang. Willow stands around
and gets upset when she realizes that no one is there to meet
her. Meanwhile, we see a boy spraying graffiti on a wall, and
then a creepy voice off screen starts speaking to the boy. The
boy looks around but doesn't see anything. Suddenly, something
jumps on the boy and he screams.
Now we're back to Willow, who is knocking on
Buffy's door. No one answers, so she just goes inside the house.
She goes upstairs and realizes that her and Tara's old room is
now Buffy's bedroom. She then flashes back to Tara's death. The
front door slams downstairs, so she goes down to see if it's
Buffy. But there doesn't seem to be anything there, so Willow
lies down on the couch in the living room, depressed.
Again, we see the clock as Buffy, Xander, and
Dawn walk in the front door. They're discussing Willow's absence
at the airport. Dawn decides that Willow must be evil again, but
Xander comes to Willow's defense. They hear a noise upstairs
(Willow), but when they go upstairs they don't find anything. As
they sit back down on the couch downstairs, we see the gang fade
from the screen, and Willow lying on the couch, fades in to the
Willow goes to the Magic Box, which is all
boarded up after last season's finale. Anya walks out with a box
and runs into Willow. Anya is not happy to see Willow, but
eventually they sit down on the curb and start talking. Anya
updates Willow on where her life has been these days. Anya tells
Willow that the gang may be at the school.
Willow goes to the construction site to see
Xander. There's no one around. She stumbles across a skinned
body lying on the ground, near a wall with graffiti on it. Now
we see Xander and Buffy there too, looking at the body, but they
can't see Willow, and vice versa. Willow hurries away from the
body, visibly disturbed by the sight of the skinned body. Xander
tells Buffy that he knows what she is thinking.
Willow is now in the basement of the high
school. She is looking for Spike. He jumps out, acting crazy and
ranting about permission slips. He starts to talk to something
else, which we can't see. Willow tells Spike about the skinned
body she found, and how she can't find Buffy and the gang. Spike
looks over to the empty spot (which is actually Buffy and Xander
who are also speaking to Spike). Willow becomes confused, and
Spike realizes that everyone can see him but that Willow and
Buffy can't see each other. He decides that Willow is the one
that isn't actually there.
Back to Buffy and Xander, walking through the
basement towards Spike. They hear Spike ranting, not able to see
Willow who is there speaking to Spike. He again makes a comment
about how everyone can't see each other.
