Our season premiere begins with Willow, Xander,
and Oz attempting to slay a vampire in the graveyard. There efforts are
no good and the vampire gets away.
You now see a beautiful beach and Buffy walks out
close to the shore.
Then Angel comes into view and holds her hands.
(don't we wish this was real? way to good to be true) Angel says some VERY
sweet stuff to Buffy like: I could see you if I was blind, and I'll never
leave you, not even if you kill me. The audience is utterly shocked and
angry when you see Buffy waking up from a very nice dream.
You eventually see Buffy at her new workplace,
Helen's Kitchen, wearing a cute little checkered outfit.
She see's a girl that was once in one of those
vampire loving cults that Buffy had saved.
Buffy says her name is Anne (her middle name) and
Lily starts to remember her. Buffy flees the place before Lily can piece
together who Buffy really is.
You eventually encounter Giles and everyone else
at the first day of school getting the year off to a busy start.
Giles has apparently been searching for leads to
find Buffy all summer and he catches a plane on another uneventful lead.
You see Buffy back in Los Angeles walking down
the street and Lily catches her. Buffy unwillingly talks to Lily where she
finds out that she is homeless and broke.
The conversation leads to Buffy saving this creepy,
old, homeless guy from getting hit by a car. Buffy, herself, is hit but
is not effected. She does not like the attention, though, so she runs away
and is stopped by a seemingly nice man that thinks she needs a shelter.
Ricky, Lily's boyfriend, turns up missing so Buffy
(unwillingly) and Lily look for him.
Buffy finds a dead man's body in an alley and immediately
knows that it is Ricky by the tattoo on his arm. (a tattoo they had shown
Buffy earlier in the shape of a heart with Lily's name on Ricky's arm and
Upon further investigation, Buffy trails the missing
homeless people to a cult (or so she thinks) and finds that Lily has already
come there. Lily is pulled into this pool of stuff as Buffy and the cult
leader guy (the one who had talked to Buffy earlier)follow her into the
little pool to. The pool turns out to be some sort of a portal into what
might be Hell.
The cult guy gets rid of his fake human face to
reveal a very nasty real face.
Buffy and Lily are now enslaved to the demon guy
and all of his soldiers.
The demon explains that they are supposedly are
in Hell and time passes much faster there.(if they really were in
Hell, Buffy should have thought about finding Angel) That's why Ricky was
so old when Buffy found that he was dead. He had been a slave down there
for decades while just a few minutes passed in L.A. Buffy and Lily are introduced
to there very crude soldier demons that will be ordering them around for
a few years.
Buffy obviously can't take the slave thing and
she beats the crap out of all of the demons.
Lily and Buffy (along with a few other unfortunate
homeless people) escape and the once active portal, closes and becomes stone.
Cordelia, Xander, Oz, and Willow are attempting
to slay some more vampires with a plan this time. They will use Cordelia
as bait, and as Xander and Cordelia are bickering over strange things, the
vampire ambushes Willow. They all work quite hard to kill him and they eventually
do, somehow leaving Cordelia on top of Xander.
And of coarse, they start to seriously make out.
Buffy hands over her humble apartment to her new
found friend, Lily, telling her that she will eventually learn to live on
her own. (kind of like what Buffy had to do)
Buffy returns home to her mother and they hug,
thus ending the episode.
*Sorry if a few events were slightly out of order,
it's somewhat hard to remember everything completely clearly.*
