In two weeks, on an all-new episode of The Chosen ...
Fade from black to a young girl running through a wooded area, terrified. She looks over her shoulder, and fails to notice the sign by the road, barely seen through the overgrowth. It reads "Welcome to Trillium".
Cut to a shot of Buffy on patrol, a stake in her hand. She eyes the cemetery warily.
Buffy (V.O.): In some ways, it's a pretty simple gig. See Jane Slay. Slay Jane, Slay.
Female (V.O.): And the other ways?
Buffy (V.O.): Ah yes. The other ways.
What are the questions?
We see the gang gathered, in serious discussion.
Buffy: But I know she—
Xander: You don't KNOW anything. You're assuming. Now guess which not-at-all cliche phrase comes next?
Buffy: I'M assuming? You're the one insisting that she's the bad guy here!
Xander: I'm not INSISTING, I'm SUGGESTING. Someone's got to.
What are the answers?
Girl: Will you help me?
Buffy stares at her for a long moment before she answers.
Buffy's not sure she wants either.
The Chosen: A Buffy Virtual Season 9. Because the story's not done yet.
