After her post-evil sabbatical in England with Giles, Willow (Alyson Hannigan) returns to Sunndale to face her friends. Unfortunately, due to magical interference from parts unknown, she somehow seems to be invisible to them. As Willow wanders around town, convinced her friends haven't forgiven her and want to avoid her, Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Xander (Nicholas Brendon), and Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg) are equally stumped about the whereabouts of their favorite Wiccan. They begin to worry that perhaps she has gone back over the dark side -- especially when corpses start turning up with their skin peeled off in an eerie echo of Willow's flaying of Warren (see "Villains"). Ultimately, the culprit turns out to be a skin-hungry demon named Gnarl (Camden Toy) who almost kills Willow herself before Spike (James Marsters) and Anya (Emma Caulfield) are able to see Willow despite the enchantment and reunite her with her friends. And as it turns out, the selective invisibility spell came from a most unexpected source. Originally broadcast Oct. 8, 2002, on the UPN network, "Same Time, Same Place" marked episode 125 of the cult-favorite series. Camden Toy, who plays Gnarl, previously portrayed one of the ghoulish "gentlemen" villains in "Hush."
