The tower was built by crazy people and I don't think it's holding up very well.
Dawn Summers[src]

The tower was a crude structure built by Sunnydale's population of victims of Glorificus mystically attracted by the coming of the Big Day. The purpose of the tower was to serve as a sacrificial place for Dawn Summers, who was supposed to have her blood spilled into a specific location at an specific time. As Dawn was the Key, the ritual would shatter the walls between realities, allowing Glory to return to her her home dimension.[1]

History[]

The Scooby Gang stormed the tower with the goal of saving Dawn and preventing Glory from performing the ritual. They found the place guarded both by demon worshipers and human victims. As the Scoobies and Glory's followers fought, Buffy Summers stalled Glory. However, Doc made his way up the tower with the intent of completing the ritual.[1]

Spike attempted to stop him, but he was stabbed and thrown from the tower. Buffy reached the top and also threw Doc off the tower, but he had already made shallow cuts across Dawn's stomach. The blood reached its intended destination and the walls separating dimensions shattered for several minutes, until Buffy sacrificed herself to close the tearing in reality's fabric.[1]

Months later, the newly resurrected Buffy walked all the way to the tower, as it was the last place she remembered. By this time, the tower had become unstable and ended up collapsing, but having to save Dawn from the fall restored Buffy's memory.[2]
