Storyline

After being poisoned by a demon, Buffy comes to believe that she is confined to a mental hospital, her mother is alive, her parents are still together, and that her life as a Slayer has all been an hallucination for the past six years. Deciding that she prefers this "normal" life with her parents, Buffy attempts to destroy the things that tether her to the "fantasy" life of the Slayer: her friends. Written by Alex

She played a well dressed, coiffured and otherwise coherent young woman brought in from the town for medication because she claimed she "saw vampires before they were in". Gellar originally played the daughter of Susan Lucci on the show. See more »
