Synopsis[edit | edit source]

All Buffy Summers wants is to hang out with her friends and relax. Is that too much to ask? It is when you're the Slayer and there's a demonic force ripping through town leaving a pile of bodies behind it. And even if she doesn't particularly like the guys getting offed, Buffy's gotta put a stop to it![1]
