Cordelia's date for the may queen election, hunky jock Mitch, is beaten black and blue in the locker-room by a 'floating' baseball bat. Angel tells Giles he can get the Pargamon Codex, the best of the missing prophecy books concerning the vampire Master. The next victim of the invisible batterer is Harmony, a close friend of Cordelia; while the gang looks into missing teenagers, presuming one has turned into a spitefully aggressive ghost as the words 'look' and 'listen' are written near the victims, English teacher Miller is nearly asphyxiated. The gang finds the 'ghostified' girl is Marcie Ross, who became invisible because she felt nobody ever noticed her, and is after vengeance on pupils who ignored her... Written by KGF Vissers

A good early performance by Clea DuVall--mild spoiler
10 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was still trying to explore all of the different things that it was or could be when this sort of one-off episode veered into "X-Files" territory. The performance by Clea DuVall as the invisible girl is memorable, which is remarkable precisely because we see so little of her. (When I first saw this episode, I couldn't help wondering, just who is that actress?) However, the character she plays, Marcy, goes being from sympathetic to being a despicable psycho.

This marks the first of many times that the character, Cordelia (played by the lovely Charisma Carpenter), would overcome her revulsion for Buffy's "loser squad" and ask them for help.
