The Story:
- - So We Meet At Last Mister Drippy - -
Buffy's attempt at plumbing ends in total failure and a flooded basement. Also the Scoobies inform her that, due to Joyce's medical bills, she and Dawn are almost broke. During Buffy's failed attempt to get a loan, the bank she is at is robbed. It is later revealed that the people who hired the bank robbing demon are no other than Jonathan, Warren, and Andrew. These three nerds Buffy went to high school with have decided to team up, and through a super-cool plan, take over Sunnydale. Knowing that Buffy is alive Giles returns from England. He is disturbed by her distant behavior and lets Willow know that he thinks she was wrong to bring Buffy back. Later, the Troika send their demon after Buffy in order to save their own hides. She successfully kills the demon by drowing it in her basement, but ends up leaving herself deeper in debt.
