Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Recipe for action: take one Buffy Summers, add three quarts of evil, a pinch of high-school high jinks, and blend well, for the high-octane monthly adventures of everyone's favorite Chosen One! The gang's well-intentioned slumber party has gone awry, and the trouble grows as the night deepens. Things are not always what they seem, and in this case, the new girl might not be telling the whole story… and it could cost Buffy more than a game of Truth or Dare.
Summary[edit | edit source]
A group of vampires invade the slumber party and Buffy dusts them all. Angel arrives and uncovered Cynthia's plans: she arranged the lavish slumber party for her vampiric father and his friends to crash and feast on.
