123 9/24/02 9/20/02 7ABB01 Lessons
Buffy battles the ghosts of Sunnydale High's past in a lively seventh-season opener punctuated by droll dialogue.

Veteran Slayer-watchers will recall that Buffy's alma mater was razed at the end of the third season during a fight with a snake-demon mayor. Now revamped and restored, the school has a new crop of students, which includes awkward freshman Dawn. It also has a visitor, Buffy, who can't resist a chance to tour the facility. But her curiosity soon turns to dread when spirits from the old school materialize to harass her. Elsewhere, Giles consoles a guilt-ridden Willow.
