Next week on an all-new episode of The Chosen...
The enemy is closer to home than they think...
Shot of Giles and Dawn, closely examining assorted books and papers.
Unknown Voice: Rupert Giles. I feel confident in saying that he is at a complete loss in regards to our movements.
Giles: Iíve been focusing the bulk of my attention on that new creature that Kennedy encountered last week. Iím hoping that if we can uncover its origins, we might shed some light on the missing Slayers.
Dawn: Gyuhh. They wonít be making a Beanie Baby of THIS thing any time soon.
Shot of Buffy and Kennedy having a heated discussion in front of several other Slayers.
Unknown Voice: The infamous Buffy Summers. The friction caused by her return may be much more an aid to us than a hindrance.
Kennedy: So you think you can teach them better than me, is that it?
Buffy: I didnít SAY better. Doesnít mean I wasnít thinking it.
Shot of Dawn in the halls of Slayer Central, talking to Judith and another Slayer.
Unknown Voice: The sister constantly struggles to find her place, believing it to only be worthwhile if itís separate from Summers.
Judith: Buffy's little sister.
Dawn rolls her eyes.
Dawn: That's pretty much my full name.
Shot of Willow and Kennedy talking in Willow's Sanctuary.
Unknown Voice: Rosenberg. She still suffers from a lack of control. What would happen if her restraint slipped? What can one do in the face of all that raw power?
Willow: I remember thinking it was nice. To- to, you know, have an anchor. Again. I-I havenít had one since ...
Shot of Faith and Xander sitting at the memorial site, watching the sapling.
Unknown Voice: Faith has clearly cast her lot with this Council, I wonder if itís a permanent decision or a passing fad?
Faith: You donít think Iím... What if I go back to...
Xander: If youíre wantiní to ask the question, I think you already know the answer.
Unknown Voice: They will fall, and when they fall, the rest of the worldís chaos will soon crumble after them.
The Chosen: A Buffy Virtual Season 8. Because the story's not done yet.
