It's Dawn's first day at the newly re-opened Sunnydale High School, and it's just like old times for Buffy as some undead students rise up and blame the Slayer for failing to protect them. Dawn and Buffy, together with some of Dawn's new friends, join together to defeat the evil. Meanwhile, the newly-ensouled Spike is seeking solace in the basement of the new school, and Willow is progressing in her rehabilitation with Giles in England. Written by

The First appears to Spike in the form of the Big Bads of the past seasons in reverse order -- Warren (Season 6), Glory (Season 5), Adam (Season 4), Mayor Wilkins (Season 3), Drusilla (Season 2), The Master (Season 1) -- and finally as Buffy. This shot of pseudo-Buffy is used as the last shot of the opening titles for season 7. See more
When The First (masquerading as Drusilla) speaks to Spike, she touches his hair and cheek, but The First is unable to touch anything. However, since Spike is still mentally unstable after getting his soul back, it is possible that he's just imagining Drusilla is touching him. See more
The coven is - they're the most amazing women I've ever met. But there's this - this look that they get. Like I'm gonna turn them all into bangers and mash, or something. Which - I'm not even really sure what that is.
