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. Faith's arrival causes tension between Buffy and everyone else because of her past, while the rest of the Slayer Potentials react instead with fascination and curiosity. Spike on the other hand, seeks a bond with Faith over their similar life of being bad. Having learns of Caleb's arrival, Buffy, the Scoobies, and the Potentials then go to Caleb's residence take up the challenge... but with disastrous results. Written by
