This famous musical episode is the turning point in season 6 where everything starts to change. Buffy finds herself with no feeling, just going through the motions. Giles must come to grips with his role in Buffy's life. Tara discovers something unpleasant in her relationship with Willow. Xander and Anya must face up to their differences. Spike struggles to cover up his inner feelings for Buffy. Dawn is in trouble; it must be Tuesday!
This will be the first ever con-casting of this production.
