Episode eight begins in the 15th century where a monk named Thelonious -- a humorous reference to the great jazz pianist -- transforms the demon Moloch the Corruptor into the actual text of a book, thereby imprisoning him. Moloch may only escape when the text is read aloud. 500 years later, Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) acquires the book for his library; subsequently, it is scanned into the library computer system under the direction of Jenny Calendar (Robia La Morte), Sunnydale High's hip and beautiful new computer science teacher. The scanning releases Moloch into the computer system as a kind of cyber-demon. Taking on the name Malcolm, he lures Willow (Alyson Hannigan) into an Internet romance and consequently uses an old electronics company to make himself into a robot-demon. Jenny -- a techno-pagan actually familiar with Moloch -- assists Giles with magically trapping Moloch inside his robot body. Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) then blows up the robot-demon with an electronic device. By introducing the character of Jenny, this episode gives Giles both competition at school and the possibility for romance -- however doomed -- in later episodes.
