Scott Hope was a Sunnydale High student and Buffy Summers's boyfriend after she returned from Los Angeles.


Scott was a student at Sunnydale High. He was life-long friends with Pete Clarner and Debbie Foley. In his senior year, Scott initiated a romantic relationship with Buffy having began the interest in the previous year. Although she did like Scott, Buffy was recovering from having recently slain her vampire lover Angel. Eventually, she and Scott began to date officially, but he dumped her shortly before the Homecoming dance because he was tired of her constant distraction. During the Homecoming dance, Scott attended with another girl, to which Faith Lehane reacted by pretending to be Scott's girlfriend and having an STD.

Following their break-up, Scott spread malicious rumors that Buffy was a lesbian, but ironically came out as gay himself years later in college.


Scott always came off as sweet and good-natured. Willow Rosenberg thought highly of his normality while Oz gave him merits for using the word "mosey". Buffy even described him like a blueberry muffin with a crumbly top.

However, according to Holden Webster, Scott seemed to be rather insincere as he made rumors about Buffy being a lesbian, despite lacking any evidence for such a claim. However, this was all part of his plot of hiding his own homosexuality until he finally came out.
