Synopsis by Matt Collar
At the groundbreaking ceremony for the U. of C. at Sunnydale's Cultural Center, Xander (Nicholas Brendon), working on the grounds crew, falls into the remains of the old Sunnydale Mission. Ironically, he releases the angry spirit Hus, of the Chumash tribe, who begins unleashing the atrocities committed against his tribe by European settlers; a professor gets his throat cut and Xander comes down with smallpox. Meanwhile, Angel (David Boreanaz) has come to town to check on Buffy's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) safety. He alerts Willow (Alyson Hannigan), Anya (Emma Caulfield), and Xander that Buffy -- essentially the warrior leader of her tribe -- is most likely Hus's next victim. Angel keeps his presence a secret from Buffy, which leads to a crossover plot development with Angel, in the episode "I Will Remember You." Humorously, Spike (James Marstens) -- unable to hurt or kill since "The Initiative" -- attends Thanksgiving dinner at Giles' (Anthony Stewart Head).
