Andrew creates "Buffy, Slayer of the Vampyres," a documentary describing the current situation in Sunnydale to show to future generations. Many emotions are captured during its filming, from Willow and Kennedy's make out fest to the recognition of what would be Xander and Anya's 1 year anniversary.

Meanwhile, the Hellmouth, or more appropriately, the Seal of Danzalthar, is activated causing outbreaks of violence and mystical occurrences at the high school. The gang forces Andrew to reveal his own past and come to terms with it to help stop the madness.

  1. Andrew: Andrew's sexuality is put further into question in this episode when he makes several comments about Xander and Jonathan's attractiveness. There's also the parts where he watches the video of Xander and Anya over and over again, mouthing Anya's words and looking past Willow and Kennedy making out to point out Xander's craftmanship.
  2. Xander and Anya: Xander and Anya finally find closure on their relationship after sleeping together and realizing it felt like "one last time."

Trivia: Grr Argh: At the end of this episode, the Mutant Enemy monster says "We are Gods" from the weird frolicking sequence instead of its usual "Grr Argh" grunting.


Buffy Summers looks like your typical high school cheerleader type, with nothing to worry about but grades and boys. Change that to vampires and demons and you'll be right. For Buffy is the "chosen one," the latest in a long line of Slayers whose destiny it is to fight evil.
