The One Where Cassie Thinks She's Going To Die...
17 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode.

In this episode, Buffy has been working as a counsellor at Sunnydale High and she thinks she hasn't been making any difference, giving any good advice or helping anyone. But one day, a girl, Cassie comes along and tells Buffy that she's going to die on Friday. Everyone investigates to find out if she's suicidal and it turns out that she's not. Dawn tries to help her, but nobody seems to be able to. Then Cassie is kidnapped by other students at the school. She is supposed to be sacrificed to a demon, so that that the boys can be rich. How original. Buffy steps in and saves the day, along with Spike. Cassie tells Spike that Buffy will tell her one day. We don't know what it actually means, but you can have your guess. We will find out, eventually. At the end of the episode, Cassie has a heart attack and sadly, dies. Everyone is shocked, but Buffy understands that there was nothing she could do.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10.
