With the books of ascension out and about, the gang is on the hunt for info. And yet, the Mayor seems to be one step ahead of them. Maybe it's because Faith is running his business underneath the Scoobie's collective nose. Worse yet, Faith is using Angel to do the Mayor's evil bidding. Can Buffy and the gang stop her in time or will the ascension mean all of Sunnydale going down?

Join us as we chat about kind demons, secret society headwear, and Holland's crazy coffee drink.
