Storyline

After an encounter with a mouth-less demon, Buffy is infected with the demon's blood and she gains the ability to hear people's thoughts. At first her newfound ability is useful for cheating on schoolwork and eavesdropping on the thoughts of those around her, but when the voices continue to flood her mind, she realizes that she cannot control the power. Amid the chaos, Buffy hears a killer planning a mass murder at the school. Now she must keep herself from going mad long enough to prevent a catastrophe. Written by Alex

Trivia

When the gang are together in the library, Oz thinks to himself "I am my thoughts. If they exist in her, Buffy contains everything that is me, and she becomes me. I cease to exist". This is a nod to French philosopher René Descartes, who came up with the Latin phrase "Cogito, ergo sum" which translates to "I think, therefore I am". Descartes used it to prove his own existence, claiming his ability to form thoughts made him a real, living, human being. On her DVD commentary, writer Jane Espenson says that Joss Whedon suggested Oz's reaction by telling Jane to "write him something that sounds like something Friedrich Nietzsche would have said in the situation."

Good lessons!

Buffy is stun by a demon which gives her the ability to hear people's thoughts with price. Angel, and the rest of the gang must find a cure for Buffy before she ends up coming mad. Meanwhile Buffy discovers the secrets of all of her friends and family.This episode was to air the week of the Columbine High School massacre. The Wb moved the viewing of the episode to September.

I believe that this episode brings a valuable lesson in that fact that that bullying in schools across the country must end. I hope that this Government will stand up and help this problem in schools cease to exist. Hopefully, the next generation will not have this problem to deal with.
