Episode 112

Prophecy Girl

Published on: 2nd August, 2022

Xander finally gets the nerve to ask Buffy out, and she feels bad when she has to tell him that she doesn't feel that way about him. Things get far worse, though, when she overhears Giles and Angel discussing a prophecy saying that the Master's ascension is at hand and that she will die trying to stop him. At this, she shouts out, telling Giles that she quits. But the vampires are growing stronger, and after an attack at the school that leaves Willow, in particular, shaken, Buffy decides it is time to face the Master. She is led to him by the Anointed One and is quickly overcome, the Master draining her blood and leaving her face down in the water. Xander, however, performs CPR and Buffy awakes feeling stronger than ever. Meanwhile, Giles, Willow, Cordelia, and Ms. Calendar are fighting off vampires and a huge monster that burst from the Hellmouth at the school. Buffy arrives back at the school to face the Master again and this time wins, throwing him through a glass roof onto a wooden shard below. The monster disappears back into the Hellmouth, and the gang retires to the prom at the Bronze.
