Willow returns to Sunnydale from Los Angeles with a powerful ally: the rogue Slayer Faith (see Season 4 of 'Angel). But the First has a new piece on the board as well. A misogynistic "preacher" named Caleb has come to town, and he throws down the gauntlet as soon as he enters Sunnydale when he attacks a Slayer Potential, named Shannon.
