Everyone gathers at the Summers home for Buffy's twenty-first birthday party and it goes well... at first. Feeling neglected by Buffy and the gang, Dawn's wish to keep people from leaving her is answered by Halfrek, who binds the attendees of the party to the house. When Tara tries a spell to free them, she only makes the situation worse by accidentally releasing a demon trapped inside a sword. Written by

When Halfrek first sees Spike, she identifies him as "William". Kali Rocha
first appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Fool for Love
(2000) as Cecily, the woman who spurned William, causing him to find Drusilla, who turned him into the vampire known as Spike. When Buffy asks whether they know each other, Spike doesn't recognize her (because she has her demon face on) and she seems to not want him to recognize her. Joss Whedon
later made a statement that Halfrek and Cecily were indeed the same entity. See more
