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
