Storyline

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

Trivia

When in class discussing Shylock, Cordelia says "That is such a Twinkie defense," she is referring to a derisive label for an improbable legal defense. It was a term coined by reporters during their coverage of the trial of defendant Dan White for the murders of San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk and mayor George Moscone. White's defense was that he suffered diminished capacity as a result of his depression. His change in diet from healthy food to Twinkies and other sugary food was said to be a symptom of depression. The consumption was symptomatic of his underlying depression and led to his actions resulting in the murder of Milk. White was convicted of voluntary manslaughter. The story of this murder was portrayed in Milk (2008), an American biographical film based on the life of gay rights activist and politician Harvey Milk. See more »

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.
