Synopsis by Matt Collar
Something is driving people crazy the day before the Sadie Hawkins Dance, and it's not just deciding who to ask. Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) has to stop a boy from shooting a girl. As she knocks the gun from his hands, the couple seem perplexed as to why they were fighting and the gun disappears. Later, while bored in class, Buffy has a vision of a student and teacher from the '50s who were having a relationship. Then, a janitor and teacher also attempt to kill each other. Distraught over Jenny's (Robia La Morte) death (see "Passion"), Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) assumes the culprit is her poltergeist. Meanwhile, Willow (Alyson Hannigan) discovers the tale of James and Miss Newman, a student and teacher who had an illicit love affair in 1955, which ended in tragedy the night of the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Apparently, James doesn't want anyone else attending the dance either.
