Plot summary

Main articles: Buffy the Vampire Slayer plot summary and List of Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes

The first season exemplifies the "high school as hell" concept. Buffy Summers has just moved to Sunnydale and hopes to escape her slayer duties. Her plans are complicated by Rupert Giles, her new Watcher, who reminds her of the inescapable presence of evil. Sunnydale High is built atop a Hellmouth, a portal to demon dimensions that attracts supernatural phenomena to the area. Buffy meets two schoolmates who will help fight evil through the series, but they must first prevent an ancient and especially threatening vampire from opening the Hellmouth and unleashing Hell on Earth.

The emotional stakes are raised in the second season. Buffy consummates her relationship with her vampire lover Angel, unknowingly removing his cursed soul as a result. He once more becomes a sadistic killer seeking to destroy the world. Buffy is forced to kill him, and leaves Sunnydale shattered.

After attempting a new life in Los Angeles, Buffy returns to town in the third season. She is soon confronted with an unstable slayer, Angel (again), and an often affable but definitely evil mayor's plans for Graduation Day.

The fourth season sees Buffy and Willow enroll at UC Sunnydale while Xander joins the workforce. Willow explores her sexuality with another witch, while Buffy begins dating a student who is a member of The Initiative, a top-secret military installation based beneath the UC Sunnydale campus. They appear to be a well-meaning anti-demon operation, but a secret project goes horribly wrong. The season also marked the first year in which Joss Whedon oversaw other TV series.

During the fifth season, an exiled Hell-God searches for a "key" that will allow her to return to her home dimension. The "key" has been turned into human form as Buffy's younger sister. The Hell-God eventually discovers the truth and kidnaps Dawn. Buffy sacrifices herself to save Dawn and the world.

Buffy's friends resurrect her through a powerful spell in the sixth season. Buffy returns from Heaven and finds a job at a fast food restaurant. Her friends are unaware of her inner turmoils as they face their own troubles: Xander leaves his fiancée at the altar and Willow becomes addicted to magic. When Willow's girlfriend is killed by a deranged murderer, Willow descends into darkness and begins a rampage.

The instability caused by Buffy's revival enables the First Evil to amass an army of powerful vampires against humankind during the final season. Willow invokes a magical spell that activates all potential slayers in the world as the Scooby Gang defeats evil once more.


Main characters

Buffy Anne Summers (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar) is "the Slayer," one in a long line of young women chosen by fate to battle evil forces. This mystic calling endows her with dramatically increased physical strength, as well as endurance, agility, ease of healing, intuition, and a limited degree of clairvoyance, usually in the form of prophetic dreams.

Buffy receives guidance from her Watcher, Rupert Giles (played by Anthony Stewart Head). Giles, rarely referred to by his first name, is a member of the Watchers' Council, whose job is to train the Slayers. Giles researches the supernatural creatures that Buffy must face, offering insights into their origins and advice on how to kill them.

Buffy is also helped by friends she meets at Sunnydale High: Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendon). Willow is originally a bookish wallflower; she provides a contrast to Buffy's outgoing personality, but shares the social isolation Buffy suffers after becoming a Slayer. As the series progresses, Willow becomes a more assertive character, a powerful witch, and a lesbian. In contrast Xander, with no supernatural skills, provides comic relief and a grounded perspective. Buffy and Willow are the only characters who appear in all 144 episodes; Xander is missing in only one.


第一季是"中學就像地獄"的典範。Buffy Summers才剛搬進太陽谷,希望能逃離她身為剋星的責任。但她新的Watcher-Ruper Giles卻不斷的提醒她邪惡的存在是無法被逃避的。在地獄口正上方的太陽谷高中是惡魔們的入口,容易引發各種超自然現象。Buffy在劇中遇到了兩個可以幫助她對抗邪惡的同學,但她們必須先阻止一個古老而強大的吸血鬼打開地獄口把地獄釋放到人間。

感情成分則在第二季加重。Buffy 和她的吸血鬼男友Angel發生關係,卻不知道這會將他被詛咒的靈魂消除。失去靈魂的Angel 再一次成為殘暴的兇手、企圖摧毀世界。Buffy被迫殺了他並精疲力盡的離開了太陽谷。


第四季我們看到Buffy 和Willow上了太陽谷的大學而Xander則去工作。Willow與另一個女巫談戀愛,而Buufy則與一名身為The Initiative-美國政府組成的秘密軍隊的成員約會。這隻軍隊原意是要幫忙除魔的,但其中一個計畫卻出了嚴重的錯。這一季起,Joss Whedon開始同時監製其他影集。



最後一季中,Buffy復活後的不穩定提供了機會,讓The First Evil聚集強達的吸血鬼軍隊。Willow施展了一個咒語啟動世界上所有的預備剋星,而最後Scooby Gang也打敗了The First。



Buffy Anne Summers(由Sarah Michelle Gellar飾演) 是所謂的"剋星",一個被命運所選中與邪惡進行對抗的女孩。這個神秘的召喚使她的體能大幅度的提升,包括耐力、靈活度、治癒的速度、直覺、並有著一定程度的預知能力,通常是預知夢。

Buffy 從她的Watcher-Rupert Giles(Anthoy Stewart Head飾演)得到了許多指導。劇中鮮少提到名字(Rupert)的Giles是Watchers' Council的一員,負責訓練剋星。Giles 幫助Buffy搜尋有關惡魔的資料,提供他們的弱點及殺死他們的方法。

Buffy還有在太陽谷高中遇到的朋友幫助她:Willow Roseberg(Alyson Hannigan)及Xander Harris(Nicholas Brendon)。Willow一開始是個被排擠的書呆子。而儘管Buffy的個性活潑外向,卻因為身為剋星無法正常交友,兩個人被人際關係所困擾。隨著影集的進展,Willow變的果斷、力量強大的女巫、及同性戀。Xander沒有特殊的能力,他能提供的是輕鬆的氣氛和更實際的意見。Buffy和Willow是唯二個角色在144集中全部都出現的。Xander也只有一集未出現。
