Everything is changed as Buffy does not turn back into a human. Instead she is captured by Vampires and used as a slave until the Master is told of this and saves her on the request that she promises to stay with him forever even though she has a soul. She agrees and eagerly kills, losing herself everyday until the soul is gone. Now, she can’t ever have it cursed because she chose to be without the soul and killed with it.
How will she summon Angelus in Season 2 to be her partner and become his Queen because the new Slayer Faith arrived and took out Nest? Will they resurrect him because the Master claimed her as his childe to the Demon population and because she WAS technically his to begin with in the dream, just never sired her in reality. Now, she is bonded to him through their blood link once he gave her some from his cut wrist. She drank from the black milk.
Buffy longed to escape the Master’s clutches, linked forever to him because she drank from him. Everyday she did the Master’s will, Buffy lost her soul. The Master beckons and Buffy does the will of the Master. To the glee of the Master. If only. . .if only Angel were here. How Buffy longed for Angel. To be Angel’s sire. His lover. Forever. But it wasn’t possible. Angel was dead. Or so the Master informed Buffy of this.
Elsewhere, in Sunnydale, the new slayer, Faith was glad to be in Buffy’s place—that sanctimonious little bitch. Buffy was gone. Thanks to the Master. Now she was the slayer. And her target: Angel. And Buffy couldn’t stop her!
There he was. Gorgeous hunk of man—er, vampire—that Angel was. Her heart did flip-flops as she watched Angel from afar. Soon, my love. Soon. We will be together.
Back to the Master’s lair…
Buffy looked for a way to escape the clutches of the Master. She tried to summon Angel, but it didn’t work. Angel was really dead. But Buffy didn’t know that she wasn’t a vampire. The Master only let her think she was. Built her desire for human flesh and blood so she would eventually love it and do his will.
Buffy kept doing the Master’s will unbeknownst to her that she wasn’t really a vampire. For days Buffy drank human blood believing she was the Master’s childe.
Longing for Angel, Buffy lived in torment as she did the work of the Master…….
And Faith was the Queen Bee in Sunnydale. She took over Buffy’s house and even managed to get Dawn to admire her. Joyce even began showing some admiration for the new Slayer.
But it only lasted a week and Faith had become a slave driver, making Dawn do the household chores while she went out hunting demons all day.
Dawn wished Buffy were here………
And there it was…Buffy’s connection to Sunnydale, that would help her come back—Dawn!
Buffy helped Dawn with the chores that Faith had forced her to do. At least until she could come up with a plan to save them from Faith and the Master.
Longing for Angel, Buffy watched Faith make love to him. What did he see in her? Faith was horrid in her role as Angel’s new love.
Buffy was interrupted in her thoughts when Dawn broke the glasses she was washing. The crash alerted Faith and Angel, as Faith left his bedside to see what the crash was.
“What’s going on in here!” Faith demanded when she saw the broken glass on the floor.
“I’m sorry.” Dawn told Faith, who berated her.
“You dumb b—–“ Faith started to say, but Buffy interrupted.
“Don’ call my sister names!”
“What are you doing here?” Faith demanded.
“I’m helping Dawn with her chores.”
“If I wanted Dawn to have help, I would have invited a party!” Faith yelled.
“I was only helping. What’s the big deal!”
Angel came down to see what was taking Faith so long.
“Faith, where are you?”
“Baby, go up stairs. I’m busy with these two nitwits.”
Angel, who unbeknownst to him, was drugged by Faith, hence the reason Faith became his girl.
As Faith was busy chiding Dawn, Buffy watched Angel go back upstairs.
“Funny how Angel just obeyed Faith like that?” Buffy thought to herself, as she followed him back up to the bedroom…her bedroom. Faith was having sex with Angel in her bed?
She found Angel lying in her bed asleep. It was weird that he was down stairs one minute and asleep in her bed the next.
“What was going on?” Buffy whispered to herself. She vowed to get to the bottom of this.
(Coming: Was it all a dream?)
Buffy woke from her dream. She was still in the Master’s clutches. But the dream told her one thing—Dawn was her way back to Sunnydale.
Back in Sunnydale, Dawn was in trouble and wished for Buffy to be here to save her and Sunnydale to vanquish the demons that wreaked havoc.
And in a split second, Buffy was there with Dawn. She vanquished the demons and saved her sister. But just as quick as she found herself in Sunnydale, Buffy found herself back in the Master’s den.
It seems only a wish temporarily sends Buffy to Sunnydale, then she returns when the wish is granted.
Now, Buffy needed to find a way to get back permanently?
And Buffy knew where to get her answer—the Master—but she would have to play along and be his childe in order to get what she wanted, as much as she detested it.
In Sunnydale, life for Dawn and her mother, Joyce, as Faith—the New Chosen One—made life for Dawn and Joyce’s lives pure hell. She was Angel’s new love, despite the fact that she was no Buffy.
Angel was lonely and Buffy wasn’t there to help him through it. He also had to deal with Spike who suddenly became a rival for Faith’s affection.
Angel and Spike even went as far as to fight over her. It was all so twisted—Spike and Angel fighting over Faith?
Back in the Master’s den, Buffy set in motion her plan to get the Master to release her from his clutches…
But Buffy would have another problem to deal with before she got back to Sunnydale……
“You rivaled me for Buffy’s affection! Now you dare to take Faith from me too?” Angel spat out as he took swing at Spike, when he caught him in a liplock with Faith.
“Hey, the Slayer asked for it.” Spike taunted Angel, as the two rivals battle it out for Faith’s affections.
Back at the Summers home, Faith was making life hell for Dawn, who was nothing more than a slave to Faith. She was forced to be at Faith’s beck and call. Dawn wished Buffy were here…the real Slayer. But Buffy was no more…gone…or was she?
“Dawn!” Dawn heard Buffy say. “Help me!”
Dawn woke from her reverie, “Buffy! is that really you?”
“Yes, Dawn! Help me!” Buffy whispered to her.
“Are you real? Or did I dream you?”
“I’m real, Dawn. You’re not dreaming.”
“How do I help you?”
“Make a wish! Wish me back!” Buffy urged.
Dawn woke from her dream. Was it true? All she had to do was wish Buffy back? But her thoughts were interrupted when Faith came in to her bedroom.
“What are you doing still in bed!” Faith berated her.
“I’m sorry.” Dawn tried to apologize to her, but Faith just threw her list of chores for her to do for the day. How was she going to get through the day? Then she remembered what Buffy said in her dream.
“I wish Buffy were here!” Dawn whispered so Faith wouldn’t hear.
and as if by magic, Buffy was there in Dawn’s bedroom!
“Dawn, why…”Faith started to say as she turned around and was shocked to see Buffy standing beside Dawn’s bed, hugging her.
“Faith, I hear you have been terrorizing my little sister!” Buffy chided her. “Well not anymore! I’m back and I’m in charge now!”
“There’s one little problem, ex-slayer!” Faith told her.
“Ex-slayer?!” Buffy said, surprised.
“That’s right, Buffy! You’re no longer the Chosen One! I am!” Faith revealed, as she rubbed her new title in Buffy’s face.
“Well…” Buffy started, but tried to find something to say. “I-I-I…never really wanted the title anyway!”
“That’s all you have to say?” Faith scoffed at her.
“Hey, I’m free. Way too stressful for my taste. You can have the job.” Buffy said.
“Well, okay.” Faith agreed. “I’m a way better Slayer than you ever were. And Angel has been a dream.”
Faith’s last remark hurt Buffy to the core. She dreamed of being Angel’s lover when she was doing the Master’s will. And he was doing Faith!
But Buffy decided she wouldn’t take Faith being with Angel bother her. instead, she decided to concentrate on being back home with her sister and mother. Angel? Angel who?
Now back home and not doing the Master’s will, Buffy agreed to go out with Willow and Xander. But it was hard to see Angel dancing with Faith. And it was especially hard for her to see Giles talking with Faith as his new protégé. She was the Slayer! The Chosen One! Not Faith! How did things go so wrong?!
Meanwhile, back at the Master’s lair…
The Master was livid to learn that Buffy had escaped his clutches by revealing to Dawn that all she had to do was wish her there. How the hell did Buffy learn of this? The Master vowed to bring Buffy back to his lair. He had work for Buffy to do.
Back in Sunnydale…Buffy was daydreaming of being in Angel’s arms when she was brought back to reality when Spike bumped into her.
“Spike?” Buffy said.
“Buffy.” Spike nodded to her.
“So Angel and Faith, huh?”
“Yeah! Who would’ve thunk it, the new power couple?” Spike mused.
“And I thought Angel and Cordy were bad.” Buffy added.
“Hey, want to get a coke?” Spike asked her.
Buffy thought about it a minute, before agreeing, “Sure, why not.”
Buffy thought going on a date might bring Angel to his senses and dump that bitch on his arm. And sure enough, it worked. Angel seethed as he watched Buffy walked out on Spike’s arm. But, there was nothing Angel could do about it.
Spike and Buffy arrived at the soda shop when Buffy got a text from her mother: “Hurry home! Dawn’s missing!”
