High school life is a rough go for Rupert Giles — as if being a grown man living inside a teenage body wasn't hard enough. Crushing on each other, Giles and his mysterious new friend, Roux, navigate around the bullies in the hallways while they investigate the school-wide threat and missing staff and students — which they are certain is connected to some kind of demon…
- The demon reveals he had been defeated by Giles when he still had his adult appearance, as before his death in Last Gleaming, Part Four.
