Buffy has another prophetic dream about Angel. When Angel picks up her fallen ring, blood pours from his hand and heart. He turns into a zombie.
Principal Snyder is forced to allow Buffy back into Sunnydale High.
Giles asks Buffy for specific details about how she stopped Acathla and killed Angel. He wants to do a spell to seal the demon. She doesn't tell them that Angel was cured when she killed him.
At the Bronze, Scott Hope asks Buffy to dance but she declines. The group sees a woman fighting with a vampire outside and slays him. The woman is Faith, the new slayer in town.
Faith shares stories about her past. The Scoobies are impressed by her tales while Buffy feels left out. Faith came to town to meet Buffy since her Watcher was at a retreat...which Giles wasn't invited to. Buffy invites Faith over for dinner.
Willow and Xander show Faith around the school. Faith gets close to Scott, but Buffy steps in to interrupt.
Kakistos, the powerful cloven-demon who came with Mr. Trick, came to Sunnydale to hunt and kill Faith.
Joyce takes a big liking to Faith. She wants Buffy to give up slaying and let Faith take over; Buffy lets slip that she died and that's how Faith became a slayer.
Buffy and Faith go patrolling in the alleys. The two get into an argument before being surprised by a couple of vampires. Faith gets out of control and nearly gets Buffy killed. Buffy hears one of the vampires call out a vampire's name.
Giles confirms that the vampire mentioned is Kakistos, an ancient vampire who's hands and feet are cloven.
Scott tries again to impress Buffy and gives her a gift to start with. The gift is the similar ring that Angel gave to Buffy; she drops the ring and takes off.
Buffy visits Faith at the motel to ask about Kakistos. Mr. Trick and other vampires ambush the home to try to kill Faith. Buffy and Faith escape down an alleyway but end up at the vampires' lair.
Mr. Trick runs away knowing that Kakistos will be vanquished soon.
Buffy stakes Kakistos but the stake is too small. Faith impales him with a large piece of lumber; he dissolves into ash.
The Council decides that Faith will stay in Sunnydale to be looked after by Giles until a new Watcher is chosen.
Buffy reveals to Willow and Giles that Angel was cured when Buffy killed him. Giles reveals to Willow that there is not spell to seal Acathla; he just wanted to hear the truth from Buffy.
Buffy reaches out to Scott to give it a try. The two agree to go to the film festival.
Buffy leaves Angel's ring at his former lair to symbolically say goodbye. After she leaves, a light shines and Angel is transported to the former lair.
