Episode Info

After staking a vampire in the Sunnydale cemetery, Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Angel (David Boreanaz) discover that someone has dug up a grave and taken its inhabitant. An icked-out Buffy soon discovers that the corpse was a cheerleader from another school who was killed in a car crash along with two other cheermates. Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) and Xander (Nicholas Brendon) dig up one of the other girls' graves to do a little research, and as they suspect, the body is missing. Angel and Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) then happen upon the dismembered bodies of all three of the missing pom-pom corpses. Apparently, Chris Epps (Angelo Spizzirri) -- the Science Club's default Dr. Frankenstein -- is attempting to fashion a Cheer-stein of sorts for Daryl (Ingo Neuhaus), his football jock brother. Very sweet, except that his brother is also a monster brought back to life! The gruesome twosome just need one freshly hacked off head to complete Daryl's new patchwork girlfriend -- and who better than Cordelia? Xander assists in saving Cordelia, thereby sowing the seeds for a future romantic entanglement, but misses his chance in this episode by ignoring her gratitude. Giles is also caught trying to compose a pick-up line for Jenny (Robia La Morte). Finally, as a continuing complication from Buffy's dance with Xander in the season opener, Angel admits to being jealous.
