High School librarian & Buffy's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) mentor in terms of vampire hunting, Giles (Anthony Stewart Giles), finds out about a new way of evil vampire the Master (Mark Metcalf) to come back to earth: according to prophecy, he wants to create the Anointed One, one of the rare creatures who can effectively kill Buffy.

But since Giles' sources are a little bit shady about when the Anointed One will actually manifest himself (his only clue is that 5 corpses will be needed for his creation), Buffy chooses to have a date with highschool heartthrob Owen (Christopher Wiehl) over going to the funeral home with Giles. Of course, when Giles is at the funeral home, all hell breaks loose, & he has to fight 2 vampires on his own, until Willow (Alyson Hannigan) & Xander (Nicholas Brendon) - Buffy's  friends & confidantes - stop by & promise to get Buffy for him.

At the club where Buffy & Owen have their date, not only these 2 but also the mysterious Angel (David Boreanaz) - who does give Buffy some pointers now & again - show up & want to drag her away to the funeral home ... & Buffy immediately sees her love life in shambles, but finally agrees to help Giles.

What she didn't expect though is that Owen follows her to the funeral home, & when the Anointed One (Geoff Meed) himself finally does show up, Owen is found in the thick of it, & almost killed. Of course, Buffy kills the Anointed One in the end, but Owen leaves the place deeply confused - is it the end of their relationship ?

Hell, no, the next day Owen shows up, all charged up for new adventures, as he wants to go out with Buffy for some action - at which point she ditches him, in order to keep him out of harm's way ... poor Slayer girl.

Plus, in the end it turns out the vampire everyone thought to be the Anointed One was not the Anointed One at all, these honors go to an innocent looking little boy (Andrew J.Ferchland), who would pop up every now & again in the first two seasons of the show.


Despite the rather stupid Marvel-Comics-like storyline & the awful bittersweet ending this episode works, as it doesn't take itself too seriously. The right amount of humour, spunky dialogue & funny plottwists all make this one an entertaining stopry after all.
