    BUFFY: What if you can have that power now? I say we change that rule.

    BUFFY (V/O): I say my power should be our power.

    VI, RONA and AMANDA become slayers.

    Cut to RILEY and DAWN at the carousel in “Shadow”.

    RILEY: And I think I’m making this worse.

    DAWN: No. This is better. I’m really glad you’re here.

    RILEY: Thanks.

    Cut to RILEY and SAM preparing to leave Sunnydale in “As You Were”. DAWN is standing in front of RILEY.

    DAWN: So you’re gonna say goodbye this time, or are you gonna split all secret agenty like last time.

    RILEY: That depends. I warrant a hug?

    DAWN gives RILEY a hug.

    Cut to the gang in the living room in “Always”.

    VI: You’re married to Sam right?

    RILEY: Yes.

    VI: Okay. Where is she?

    RILEY: Sam’s dead. (BEAT) And it’s my fault.

    KENNEDY: Your fault?

    RILEY: I just…can’t talk about this right now.

    RILEY goes upstairs.

    Cut to: DAWN and ALLISON in DAWN’s room.

    DAWN: It wasn’t his fault.

    ALLISON: About his wife’s death? Of course not.

    DAWN: When he first left Sunnydale.

    ALLISON: You blamed your sister for that?

    DAWN: No. Someone else.

    Cut to: DARLENE casting her spell on RILEY in his room.

    DARLENE: No more sorrow. No more pain. Allow this mortal thine own…

    A knock can be heard, followed by DAWN calling through the door.

    DAWN (O/S): Riley?

    DAWN enters. RILEY opens his eyes and sees SAM/DAWN. He backs up against a wall in his room.

    SAM/DAWN: Riley?

    RILEY: Sam?

    SAM/DAWN: What?

    RILEY blinks and sees Dawn.

    DAWN: You miss her, don’t you?

    RILEY: You have no idea.

    DAWN gives RILEY a hug.

    Cut to the gang in the living room. RILEY sees SAM/DAWN again.

    RILEY: Sam? I see Sam again. Just like last night.

    He sees SAM/DAWN, while the others see DAWN.

    RONA: Is there a nuthouse in Cleveland?

    VI: He’s grief stricken!

    RONA: Oh really?

    WILLOW: That’s not Sam.

    RILEY: No. She’s still alive. Oh.

    RILEY runs out of the house.

    Cut to: RILEY with BUFFY at the City Bridge. He pushes her away, annoyed.

    RILEY: Why did you come here?

    BUFFY: Were you trying to kill yourself?!

    RILEY is shaking. He drops to his knees, sobbing. BUFFY kneels down to comfort him.

    Cut to RILEY, GRAHAM, BUFFY, GILES, VI, WILLOW, KENNEDY, XANDER and FAITH at the Cemetery.

    GILES: Losses like this are completely unexpected. Especially when it’s someone that you care about so much.

    RILEY: Sam. I miss you so much. No matter who I fall for in life, I will always love you. Always.

    BUFFY: Riley.. I know she heard you and I also know she loves you and she misses you too.

    BUFFY and RILEY hug.

    ACT ONE

    CUT TO:INT. LIVING ROOM – SCOOBY HQ -DAY
    The gang is gathered in the living room. BUFFY, GILES and FAITH are sitting on the couch. RILEY is standing while DAWN sits on BUFFY's side of the couch, on the floor while XANDER, WILLOW, RONA and KENNEDY are sitting on Faith's side of the couch, also sitting on the floor. ANDREW is leaning on the right wall of the living room while VI leans on the right side. MISS NICHOLS stands behind GILES. GRAHAM and BIANCA are standing in the center of the room, preparing to say what they need to say.

    BUFFY: So what’s the problem?

    GRAHAM: There’s Rogue Slayers in town. Seven of them. We’ve been on the hunt for them for about 48 hours now and it looks like they‘ve come here.

    FAITH: Alright. I think we need to divide into teams.

    GILES: Good idea. We’ll hopefully find the Rogue Slayers quicker that way.

    BUFFY: I’ll help look for the Rogue Slayers. Faith, I want you to come with me.

    FAITH: I concur.

    BUFFY: Riley, I want you to stay here.

    RILEY: Sure thing, Buffy.

    ROBIN: I’ll stay too. I can help fight if they come here.

    BIANCA: So, who’s helping us out, Buffy?

    BUFFY: That would be myself, Rona, Kennedy, Willow, Xander, Faith, Rupert, Graham and Bianca.

    DAWN: So people like myself, Robin, Miss Nichols, Riley, Andrew, Vi, Chao-Anh and…(LOOKS AT BRUCE) I’m sorry, mister…

    BRUCE: Bruce.

    DAWN: Bruce, are staying here in case the rogue slayers attack the headquarters?

    BUFFY: That’s the plan.

    GILES: Ok then. We gotta get going.

    BUFFY, XANDER, WILLOW, GILES, KENNEDY, RONA, GRAHAM, BIANCA and FAITH all exit the house, leaving the others at the house. ROBIN looks at RILEY.

    ROBIN: I don’t think we’ve met yet.

    RILEY: No we haven’t.

    ROBIN: Buffy has mentioned you before though, you’re Riley Finn, right?

    RILEY: Yeah. You?

    ROBIN: My name’s Wood. Robin Wood. I helped Buffy and the others during the final battle in Sunnydale.

    RILEY: You did?

    ROBIN: Yeah. Um, listen. I’m really sorry about your wife Sam. Faith e-mailed me and told me what happened.

    RILEY: Thanks.

    ROBIN: It’ll be ok. (BEAT) I know what it’s like to lose someone so close, someone you care about so much. My mother was killed by a vampire when I was younger. Riley looks at Robin sympathetically.

    ROBIN: I’d rather not think about it anymore. It’s been years ago and your loss was a week ago.

    RILEY: It’s understandable.

    DAWN looks at both men.

    DAWN: We should be on the lookout for the rogue slayers. That is if we’re done with the chat.

    RILEY/ROBIN (IN UNISON): Right.

    Cut to: EXT. STREETS – CLEVELAND -DAY
    BUFFY, XANDER, WILLOW, KENNEDY, BIANCA, GILES, RONA, GRAHAM and FAITH are out on the search for the seven rogue slayers that are somewhere in town.

    BUFFY: So, do you know where the rogue slayers are hiding?

    BIANCA: They could be anywhere. All we know for sure is that they’re somewhere in Cleveland.

    GRAHAM: Like we said, we’ve been looking for them for the past 48 hours.

    XANDER: Who’s idea is it that these newly activated rogue slayers would be here?

    GRAHAM: Mine. I knew they’d arrive here cause somehow they like to wreck havoc.

    BIANCA: You’re more than likely right at that theory, Graham cracker.

    GRAHAM: Thanks B.

    RONA: Probably so.

    BUFFY: Ok. Let’s keep looking. We have to find them. Before they hurt someone.

    BIANCA: How many of you guys are slayers? From this group.

    BUFFY: I am.

    KENNEDY: I am.

    RONA: And me.

    GRAHAM (THINKING): There’s millions of slayers in the world. Any girl could be a slayer with incredible power.

    The camera zooms out to reveal a GIRL hiding behind a bush watching the group. She’s pretty, black in color, black hair, and wearing red. She smiles evilly.

    GIRL: You got that right.

      ACT TWO

      Cut to: DARK ROOM - UNKNOWN - DAY
      The BLACK GIRL we saw at the end of ACT ONE slinks into the room slyly. She looks and sees BLACK GIRL 2, a BRUNETTE, a BLONDE GIRL, BRUNETTE 2, BURNETTE 2 and a GOTH GIRL waiting for her anxiously.

      BLACK GIRL: Hey girls. Sorry. I took so long.

      BLONDE #1: It's alright, Marjorie. What do you know of Buffy Summers and her slayerette pals?

      MARJORIE: They divided into two teams. One's looking for us and the other's at the headquarters.

      BLACK GIRL #2: So how do we get both teams if they're separated?

      MARJORIE: Good question, Natalee. To find out, let's split up. Four of us will deal with Buffy's team, three of us will deal with team two. Sarah, Athena and Liza, you're with me. We'll take on Buffy and her team downtown.

      SARAH, LIZA(blonde #1) and ATHENA group in with MARJORIE.

      MARJORIE (CONT'D): That means Natalee, Jordan and Katharine, you guys will take on the group that's at the headquarters.

      NATALEE, JORDAN, KATHARINE group in together.

      NATALEE: Alright.

      MARJORIE: So it's settled?

      JORDAN: Yeah. We are.

      MAJORIE: Ok then. Let's go.

      The ROGUE SLAYERS go their separate ways.

      Cut to: INT. LIVING ROOM – SCOOBY HQ - DAY
      RILEY, DAWN and ROBIN are looking at each other, sitting on separate chairs.

      DAWN: So how was Europe?

      ROBIN: Pretty good. Caridad, Anna and I found about seventeen slayers so far. Caridad and Anna are still searching for slayers so we‘ll definitely have more before the week is out.

      DAWN: So all slayers in the world will be united when the time comes?

      ROBIN: If we live that long.

      RILEY: I'm sure we will.

      ROBIN: How can you be sure?

      RILEY: We just gotta believe that we can survive.

      DAWN: Exactly.

      Enter ANDREW, MISS NICHOLS, BRUCE, VI and CHAO-ANH.

      BRUCE: Riley, are you ok?

      RILEY: Yeah. I'm ok.

      CHAO-ANH (SPEAKING CHINESE): He seems to be recovering from grief.

      BRUCE (PUZZLED): Ok. What is she saying?

      ANDREW: Who's gonna teach Chao-Anh how to speak English?

      VI: Rona and I have talked it over and we're going to try teach her English as soon as these Rogue Slayers are out of the way.

      ANDREW: Alright.

      ROBIN seems to be thinking.

      DAWN: You thinking about Faith?

      ROBIN: Yeah.

      He looks at her and then at RILEY.

      ROBIN: Are you and Riley together?

      RILEY/DAWN (SIMULTANEOUSLY): What?

      DAWN and RILEY look at each other and then they look at ROBIN.

      DAWN: No! What made you think that?

      ROBIN: Just a thought.

      RILEY: Dawn does kinda remind me of Sam though.

      DAWN looks at RILEY for a second.

      ROBIN: I see.

      Cut to: EXT. STREETS - CLEVELAND - DAY
      We see NATALEE, KATHARINE and JORDAN walk towards the Scooby HQ.

      Cut to: EXT. DOWNTOWN - CLEVELAND - DAY
      BUFFY, XANDER, WILLOW, GILES, KENNEDY, RONA, GRAHAM and BIANCA are looking for the ROGUE SLAYERS.

      RONA: They’re bound to be close.

      GRAHAM: Don't worry. We'll find them. It's only a matter of time.

      The camera pans out to an alleyway, where we see MARJORIE, LIZA, SARAH and ATHENA creep by. The gang walk over to the alleyway. Before anyone can react, MARJORIE appears and punches BUFFY to the ground.
