1: Cleveland (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Stars: Michelle Trachtenberg, Iyari Limon, Indigo, Felecia Day, and D.B. Woodside as Robin Wood) - Real time: Buffy, Xander, Willow, Faith, Andrew, and twenty-something slayers stare at something in front of them. Buffy says "Yeah, this'll do just fine." Flashback to 2003, a few days after "Chosen": The school bus is parked outside a small diner in Nevada. Buffy, Xander, Willow, Giles, Dawn, Faith, Andrew, Kennedy, Rona, Vi, and Robin are sitting at the largest table (Robin and Rona have already been to a hospital). Buffy announces that she will be splitting everybody up to round up other activated slayers around the world before settling down in Cleveland, the location of the next Hellmouth, as her main headquarters: She and Dawn will go to Rome so Dawn can finish school, Xander to Africa, Willow and Kennedy to Brazil, Giles and Andrew to England (So Andrew can be trained as a Watcher), Robin to New York, Vi to Japan, Rona to China, and Faith to Cleveland, where she will stay and train the slayers who had survived the previous battle in Sunnydale. A few hours later, everyone is at the Nevada airport and preparing to depart for their respective destinations. Buffy assures them that most of their positions are going to be temporary until they organize the new slayers into groups and she gives some of them squadrons to be in charge of. They depart. Flash forward to 2005, two days before real-time (A couple of months after Angel Season Six ended): In Rome, Buffy and Dawn discuss her going to college. Buffy isn't comfortable leaving Dawn by herself while she rearranges everybody's locations, so she allows her to come with her to the Cleveland airport where they will rendezvous with the others. Xander, Willow, Giles, Faith, Andrew, and the home group of slayers left with Faith are there waiting for them. Giles agrees to accompany Dawn back to Rome and help enroll her into college. They take the next plane back to Rome while Buffy, Xander, Willow, Faith, Andrew, and the other slayers head off to find a base for themselves (The one Faith had used previously had kicked them out because they were partying and making too much noise. Buffy scolds Faith for her carelessness, but she promises it won't happen again in their new place). Now back to real-time, with them looking at something in front of them. It turns out to be an old, abandoned hotel building all by itself. Xander asks how this can possibly be 'just fine'. Buffy asks him to think of another place that could hold twenty-plus people. They enter the building and see that it is very moldy and dilapidated. Xander sighs and says unenthusiastically "Home sweet home."
2: Home Improvement (Guest Star: James Marsters) - Buffy and the others try to adjust to their new base by cleaning and repairing it, while Andrew calls Spike secretly and updates him on what's going on.
3: Vengeance (Guest Star: Andy Umberger) - A Vengeance demon blends in as a slayer and causes mayhem by having others unintentionally state wishes (Including Andrew's "I wish that everyone liked me more.", causing everyone to clamor for his attention, Willow's "I wish that everyone would back off of me a little.", after which nobody could come within five feet of her, being stopped by an invisible force field, and Faith's "I wish we could have more fighting instead of sitting around.", resulting in the base being attacked non-stop by demons and vampires). After realizing what is happening, Xander confronts D'Hoffryn and convinces him to withdraw his demon after telling him about Anya's death and that he now knows how he had felt when she had chosen to become human and had lost her forever. They eventually form to a truce: D'Hoffryn doesn't bother Buffy again and vice-versa.
4: The Ghoul Next Door (Guest Stars: Sean Maher, and Christina Hendricks)- Willow discovers a spirit named John, who had been a past resident of the hotel, trapped in the building by a vengeance spell cast by his ex-girlfriend Lucinda, who also ended up trapped there by accident. The catch of the spell is that once they are freed, one of them goes to heaven, and the other to hell (Whoever moves on first goes to hell). Willow tells the others about the situation. Xander is suspicious that John might be tricking her. Later, they release John and, accidentally, Lucinda as well. She confronts them, saying she wants to remain on Earth in corporeal form. After vanishing, John explains that he and Lucinda's spirits can possess people and that she will probably try to possess someone to stay hidden. On the way back to her room, Buffy is ambushed and possessed by Lucinda. Next day, she approaches Xander and seduces him into kissing her, but gives herself away by not knowing who Spike was. Knocking down Xander, she confronts Willow and John, who had just set up a portal to ascend them. Then John possesses Xander, making himself corporeal too, in order to fight her. They fight for a while, then Lucinda hits the portal first, is forced out of Buffy (Who falls down unconscious), and vanishes. John emerges out of Xander, who also falls unconscious, thanks Willow for her help, and ascends to heaven. After Buffy and Xander wake up, Willow fills them in. Buffy expresses regret that Lucinda didn't become corporeal because she really wanted to kick her ass to the next universe. After Willow leaves, Xander tells Buffy about what had happened between him and 'her'. After apologizing, Buffy irritably points out that this had basically been Faith and Riley all over again. Leaving the room, Xander suddenly realizes that his old crush on Buffy has unexpectedly returned in full force.
5: A Beautiful Mind (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head) - Giles returns and tells Buffy and everyone else about what had happened to him after he dropped off Dawn in Rome. He had gotten involved in a demonic competition for his life where he had to compete against a demon tribe's most intelligent member. If Giles won, he goes free, but if he lost, he would have been killed. After winning, the contest, the demons actually decided to worship Giles' intelligence. Only after making up a story about needing to stop a volcano erupting with the power of his brain did he convince them to let him go.
6: Love, Actually (Guest Star: Amber Benson as Tara) - While Faith and Andrew organize a training session for the other slayers, Willow is visited by Tara in a dream. The Powers that Be have felt that Willow had now earned the right to see her. Tara assures Willow that she will always be there to help if she needs her. Meanwhile, Buffy and Xander consult each other about their feelings for Anya and Spike and their passing. After Xander assures Buffy that they at least still have each other, they spontaneously kiss (For real this time). Andrew walks in to tell Buffy about the training session (Awkward silence).
7: Psychology (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Stars: Amy Acker, and James Marsters) - While Giles and Willow discuss how her magic using abilities are going, Andrew has a private psychology session with Buffy and Xander. Xander admits that he still has feelings for Buffy, but feels somewhat guilty about it after everything he went through with Anya, while Buffy isn't sure what she's feeling and doesn't want to risk rushing into another failing relationship (Pike, Owen, Angel, Scott, Parker, Riley, Spike). Andrew suggests that they let it play out and see how they feel about each other later. After they leave, Andrew gets a call from Spike and Illyria, warning him that Tucker has escaped.
8: Brotherly Love (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Stars: James C. Leary, and Brad Kane) - While Buffy and the others take the slayers out for a training session, Andrew battles with his feelings about Tucker. He isn't very fond of him, but doesn't want him to kill Buffy or be killed himself. He also knows that Tucker is capable of what Warren had done if he was tempted to do it. He eventually decides that as long as Tucker doesn't turn up, he won't tell Buffy about him. Meanwhile, Tucker has arrived at the crater that was once Sunnydale and runs into Clem, who comes by on a regular basis to pay his respects for Spike's death there. Pretending to be an old friend of Buffy's, Tucker asks him if he knows where she had gone. Clem says that he hadn't heard from her since he evacuated the town, but remembered something Spike had said before about another Hellmouth in Cleveland. Thanking him, Tucker asks for a ride to the bus station. A few hours later, Tucker gets on a bus for Cleveland. Clem asks Tucker to tell Buffy he says hi. Tucker responds "Oh, I will."
9: Rematch (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Star: Rudolph Martin) - Dracula finds Buffy and confronts her about her 'ensouled ex'. After fighting her and being mocked a little by Xander. Dracula announces that he is going to retire to Transylvania to ensure that his reputation will not be ruined by anyone again. Giles asks Xander why he acted particularly jealously toward Dracula about Buffy. Andrew then reveals what had happened a few weeks earlier.
10: Black Mirror, Part 1 (Special Guest Stars: Nathan Fillion, and Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Stars: Mark Metcalf, Clare Kramer, George Hertzberg, and Brad Kane) - Tucker arrives in Cleveland and prepares a summoning spell. In the middle of the questioning of Buffy and Xander, they, Willow, and Faith vanish. Andrew, the only other person with them at the time, had been left behind. He calls Giles (Out on an errand) and tells him what had happened. Giles asks him if he knows anyone or anything that can summon or teleport people. Then Andrew realizes why he must've been spared: Tucker had found them and learned how to summon people as well as demons. Meanwhile, Buffy and the others find themselves in a parallel universe upon meeting alternate vampiric versions of themselves, plus Giles and Andrew. Parallel Xander has an axe slash over his left eye (Similar to Kakistos' injury) instead of an eye patch, Parallel Andrew has a Mohawk, Parallel Giles has a mullet and a very Ripper-like appearance, while Parallel Buffy has black highlights in her hair and is wearing an outfit similar to The Master's. After a short fight, the parallel versions have them beaten, until they are unexpectedly saved by parallel versions of Glory, Caleb, Adam, and The Master.
11: Black Mirror, Part 2 (Special Guest Stars: Nathan Fillion, and Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Stars: Amy Acker, Mark Metcalf, Clare Kramer, George Hertzberg, with Brad Kane, and James Marsters) - After the parallel good guys are driven off, The Parallel Master (Known as Heinrich) and Glory tell Buffy and the others about their universe: Glory (The Slayer), Caleb (Glory's Watcher), and Heinrich (A vampire cursed with a soul) fought against Parallel Buffy (Known by them as The Master) and the other vampires, along with some one-time villains including The Principal (Snyder) who had ascended into a demon and eaten The Mayor, a cyborg called Riley, a hell-god called Cordelius, and a trio of vampires called The Three (Of which Parallel Andrew is the only remaining member). Over time they recruited a witch named Amy, a soldier named Adam, a girl who was once part of a trio of nerds called Drusilla, and Warren, an ex-member of The Three who had fallen in love with Glory and gotten his soul for her. During the last battle of Sunnydale, Amy, Drusilla, and Warren had perished along with Heinrich, who had used an amulet to destroy the Hellmouth and take the other vampires with him. Then a few days later, Heinrich had been resurrected through the amulet and, unfortunately, so had the other vampires who had died after the amulet activated. In the real world, Andrew calls Spike and Illyria and tells them that Tucker has found Buffy. Then he goes and confronts Tucker himself.
12: Black Mirror, Part 3 (Special Guest Stars: Nathan Fillion, and Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Stars: Amy Acker, Mark Metcalf, Clare Kramer, George Hertzberg, with Brad Kane, and James Marsters) - After telling Andrew where he had sent Buffy, Tucker says that he had spared him because he is his brother and was hoping he would help him. They argue about opinions and loyalty until Spike and Illyria arrive. In the parallel world, Caleb tells Buffy that only way he can think of to return them to where they came from was the same way they had got there. Then their parallel selves attack again. In the ensuring battle, Parallel Adam, Faith, and Andrew are killed.

Tucker is finally corned and reluctantly reverses the spell. Heinrich dies to save Buffy and ensure that they get sent back. As Buffy and the others reappear, Tucker runs off. When Buffy questions how Andrew had managed to save them all by himself, he notices Spike and Illyria slipping out quietly, not wanting her to know of their involvement.
14: Dimension of Confusion (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head) - Buffy tells Giles about the parallel world they had been to. He says that other dimensions do exist, but they should never cross paths, reminding her about what had happened when Ethan had caused dimensions to bleed into each other. Buffy wearily remarks that she feels like she's in a 'dimension of confusion'. After being interrogated about Tucker, Andrew decides to try to be more useful and asks Faith if she can help train him to fight better.
15: Apprentice (Guest Star: Elizabeth Anne Allen) - Faith continues to work on training Andrew, while Willow and Amy have a final confrontation.
16: Xanderless (Special Guest Stars: Seth Green, and Anthony Stewart Head. Guest Stars: David Boreanaz, Mark Metcalf, Robia Lamorte, Clare Kramer, Bianca Lawson, Christian Clemenson, Harry Groener, with Eric Balfour, and Alexis Denisof) - Xander experiences a universe in which he was never born, in which Buffy, Angel, Giles, Wesley, Cordelia, and Spike have died, while Jesse and Jenny Calendar are alive until they, along with Willow and Oz, are killed by The Mayor and his Ascension, which happened because of a chain of events starting with Buffy's permanent death at the hands of The Master. Then Glory ascended without any interference, resulting in all dimensions, including the Mayor-controlled-Earth, to be destroyed.

Guest Stars: Clare Kramer, and Brad Kane) - Now desperate, Tucker summons the parallel guys to him, hoping he can negotiate with the bad ones to help him. However, they decide to kill him because he summoned them and was indirectly responsible for the deaths of their Faith and Andrew. Glory and Caleb aren't happy either, but decide to protect Tucker since he is human. Unfortunately, they are both outnumbered and killed. Tucker runs for it as the parallels take over his base. Tucker arrives at Buffy's and begs for help after explaining what had happened. Buffy demands that he turn himself over to the police. He protests, but Andrew explains about what had happened to Warren. Not wanting to be skinned alive, Tucker forfeits and allows himself to be led off to prison. Meanwhile, the parallels decide to take over the world they are now trapped in, starting by opening the Hellmouth.
20: Traitor (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head) – After years of mistreatment, Parallel Giles is finally pushed too far and rebels against Parallel Buffy. Parallel Xander finds that the brain modification chip preventing him from harming humans has stopped working, meaning he could participate in the upcoming fight.
21: Double Vision (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head) - While debating what to do about the parallel versions of themselves, Parallel Giles turns up, offering inside information on the other's plans. He explains how unfairly Parallel Buffy treated him and why he decided to turn against her. They are unsure of whether they can trust him, since he is an evil version of Giles. Meanwhile, Parallel Buffy, Xander, and Willow decide to attack Buffy and get rid of her so they can locate the Hellmouth without interference.
22: Broken Glass (Special Guest Star: Anthony Stewart Head) - After recruiting some other vampires, the parallel trio attack Buffy's base. Buffy counter attacks with her percentage of the Slayer Army. Casualties mount quickly on both sides. Willow battles her equally magical double in a mid-air duel and barely defeats her. Andrew, Faith, Xander, Giles, and Parallel Giles take out a few vampires apiece. Xander saves Buffy from Parallel Xander, who had been teasing her about being in love with the 'dorky, wimpy' version of him in this universe. Then Buffy is attacked by her own parallel self. Buffy yells at everybody to get back, since her double is the only vampire left. They battle near a crack in the ground that the two Willows had caused, with magma from the Earth's core at the bottom. Parallel Buffy is about to knock Buffy down into the crack when Parallel Giles runs forward and flings himself into his old leader, knocking her off the edge along with himself, saving Buffy's life. Later, Giles confides in Faith that he is concerned because his evil self turned out to be good after all, which he thinks could mean that he might not be. Faith reasons that Giles must be such a good person that every version of him must have decency in them. Buffy visits Xander in his room and says that she has decided to give the two of them together a shot, while Andrew sits alone in his room, thinking about Tucker.
