Principal Wood gives Buffy a bag of items that used to belong to his mother, who was also a slayer. The bag contains various items including weapons, a book, and a strange sealed box. Opening the box leads to a chance for Buffy to gain incredible power. Now she must decide whether the power is worth the price. Meanwhile, a small tragedy rocks the Potentials. Written by

Answering Principal Wood about whether the rise in school violence is normal, Buffy says, "The Hellmouth has begun its semi-annual percolation. Usually, it blows around May."

I'm the Slayer. The one with the power. And the First has me using that power to dig our graves. I've been carrying you - all of you - too far, too long. Ride's over.

You're new here, and you're wrong. Because I use the power that I have. The rest of you are just waiting for me.
Well, yeah, but only because you kinda told us to...
