Lessons Buffy battles the ghosts of Sunnydale High's past in a lively seventh-season opener punctuated by droll dialogue. Veteran Slayer-watchers will recall that Buffy's alma mater was razed at the end of the third season during a fight with a snake-demon mayor. Now revamped and restored, the school has a new crop of students, which includes awkward freshman Dawn. It also has a visitor, Buffy, who can't resist a chance to tour the facility. But her curiosity soon turns to dread when spirits from the old school materialize to harass her. Elsewhere, Giles consoles a guilt-ridden Willow. 24 Sept 02
7.2 Beneath You Buffy reluctantly teams with Spike to slug it out with a gigantic worm, but there's a bigger surprise in store for the Slayer. Soon after Buffy reports for her first day as Sunnydale High's student counselor, Xander introduces her to a woman whose dog was eaten by the oversized annelid. Suspecting demon activity, Buffy volunteers to find the creature, and Spike, who's being tormented by an unknown force, shows up to offer his assistance.

7.4 Help Buffy is settling in to her counselor's role at the high school helping troubled teens and sorting out problems, but is left speechless when Cassie, a student, comes to her and calmly tells her that she (Cassie) has only a week to live. Suspecting the girl is suicidal, Buffy investigates and discovers a cult of students playing with dark forces and comes to believe Cassie is psychic. 15 Oct 02
7.5 Selfless A wish granted by Anya has devastating consequences in this alternately witty and wrenching tale. Anya's breakup with Xander has driven her to return to her vengeance-demon ways with, well, a vengeance. But that changes after she takes a humiliated coed's desire to make frat boys "feel what it's like to have [their] hearts ripped out" too literally. Horrified by the carnage she has caused, Anya struggles to wash the blood from her hands.

"I let her go, she slices me open with that thing," he says. The First, Caleb's mentor and the Scoobies' long-time nemesis, says Buffy will be dealt with "when she's got her back turned."
