Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
When Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg) goes psychotically ga-ga over an attractive jock named R.J. Brooks (Thad Luckinbill), it's up to school counselor Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) to ferret out the origins of her sister's obsessive behavior. As it turns out, Dawn's lust is supernatural in origin, which sends Buffy into slayer mode and the Scoobies on a research mission. Xander (Nicholas Brendon) and Spike (James Marsters) connect with R.J.'s older brother, Lance (Brandon Keener), who, despite his current un-studly countenance, was also quite the high school chick magnet in his day. The Brooks brothers' irresistible sex appeal is soon revealed to be the product of their enchanted wardrobe. Unfortunately, such knowledge is of little help to Buffy, Anya (Emma Caulfield), and even Willow (Alyson Hannigan), all of whom fall madly in love with dreamy R.J. All three women embark on ludicrous missions to impress the boy, unaware that the despondent Dawn has chosen to attempt suicide rather than compete for boys with her super-sis. Xander and Spike come to the rescue, but Dawn's hurt feelings last long after the spell has been broken. Originally broadcast November 5, 2002, on the UPN network, "Him" marked episode 128 of the cult-favorite series.
