    ACT I


    Open on everyone sat around the kitchen table. They are all laughing and eating Christmas dinner.

    Willow: Which you left in Sunnydale.

    Buffy: That's not the point, it was good.

    Dawn: Well I think Christmas three years ago was good.

    Chris: What did you do?

    Dawn: Mom was there.

    Buffy smiles at Dawn. Dawn smiles back.

    Willow: And I remember Anya with Santa Claus.

    Xander: Long story.

    Siobhan: Wow.

    Dawn: But he disembowels kids.

    Siobhan: Oh. Won't be leaving a mince pie for him this year.

    Everyone laughs.

    Kennedy: Well I remember two years ago. Me and my mom had Christmas together.

    Willow smiles at Kennedy.

    Buffy: That Christmas was bad I remember.

    Willow: Oh I was a total wreck.

    Buffy: No not that. Well yeah that. But I remember I burnt the turkey.

    Dawn: Oh god I remember.

    Siobhan: So did we.

    Chris: We dropped the stuffing.

    Everyone laughs.

    Dawn: And then-

    Siobhan: It was so funny-

    Buffy: We took ages to find another one-

    Everyone continues to talk. The camera zooms out suddenly and shows that they are being watched through a crystal ball of some kind. The camera zooms out further to show the box seen in Fractures next to it.

    Voice: We have collected information on all of them sir.

    The camera scrolls up to show a smaller demon and a larger demon.

    Large Demon: Good.

    Smaller Demon: We will begin at once then?

    Large Demon: Yes. Make it slow.

    Smaller Demon: Yes sir.

    The demon salutes and walks off. The large demon moves closer to the crystal ball.

    Large Demon: Yes, enjoy yourselves children. You haven't got long left.

    The camera zooms in on the crystal ball and we are back in the Summers' kitchen. Everyone is still laughing. Suddenly white light explodes from the middle of the table. The camera shows everyone one by one frozen in time. There is silence.

    The man smiles. Cut to Xander. The man pushes his hand towards Xander's face. He doesn't hit Xander, but Xander gasps and closes his eyes as if something is in them. He slowly opens them and looks shocked.

    Cut to Xander and Anya sitting on a sofa watching TV. The captions say it is the year 2006. Xander no longer has his eye patch. Anya is visibly pregnant and she is leaning against Xander.


    Anya: This movie's boring. Why couldn't you have got one with monkeys?

    Xander: There were no monkey movies. Or at least, none that were any good.

    Anya: Well there could at least have been one with some kind of sex in it. Remember we used to enjoy watching that.

    Xander: Uh?the baby might see.

    Anya: I don't think the baby has x-ray vision.

    Xander: Well, this is all we have.

    Anya sighs.

    Anya: Well I'm glad that it's with you.

    They continue to watch. Anya frowns slightly and sits up.

    Anya: Hey! There's a bunny in this movie!

    Xander: Anya it was on for two seconds.

    Anya: Yeah but did you see how it looked at me? It's gonna kill that couple isn't it? They're just happily eating lunch on that hill, and it's gonna eat ?em!

    Xander: Anya I don't think?oh god it is!

    Anya: Turn it off, turn it off!

    Xander reaches for the remote. He turns off the TV. Anya lies back relieved.

    Anya: You see what I mean now? Bunnies are evil. Every single one of ?em.

    Xander: Not all bunnies are gonna kill you.

    Anya: Well if any try, will you stop them?

    Xander: Sure. No bunny's gonna get my girl.

    Anya smiles at Xander. Xander kisses her forehead. Xander turns on another channel. He looks at Anya. The fatal wound she got in Chosen has appeared.

    Xander: An, what's that?

    Anya looks down.

    Anya: Oh that? Don't worry about that. It was a battle I didn't win.

    The continue to sit together. Cut back to Xander. He looks up at the man. The man smiles. Cut to Dawn. She opens her eyes and looks shocked.

    Cut to her, Joyce and Buffy sitting around the table in the Summers' old house. The year is 2005.


    Joyce: Honey I'm just so proud of you.

    Dawn: Mom I'm not the only person to ever get into Harvard.

    Joyce: That doesn't matter! You got through all this trouble and still managed to get into a college as good as that.

    Buffy: I obviously wasn't her role model.

    Joyce: Now Buffy don't talk like that. You were offered a place in Northwestern remember?

    Buffy: Yeah, I also remember the not going to it.

    Dawn: Well I'll send you a postcard from Harvard.

    Buffy: (sarcastically) Thanks Dawn.

    Dawn giggles.

    Joyce: Now honey you must remember to come home right?

    Dawn: Oh I will.

    Buffy: Try not to make it too long ok?

    Dawn and Buffy smile at each other. Joyce smiles at them both.

    Joyce: Well, I need to go and get the pudding. Dawn come and help me with the dishes?

    Dawn: But I'm the guest of honour!

    Joyce: You can still wash dishes though.

    Dawn smiles and rolls her eyes. She follows Joyce.

    Buffy: Don't worry I'll help too.

    Oh Buffy that's sweet of you. Joyce turns around. Her face is white like it is in The Body. She frowns slightly.

    Dawn: You ok mom?

    Joyce: Yeah just um?my head it uh, it felt like it used to.

    Dawn: Oh my god, are you-

    Joyce: Dawn I'm fine. I think it was just a small headache.

    Joyce walks back into the kitchen. Dawn follows frowning slightly.

    Cut back to Dawn. She looks at the man. He turns around.


    Man: This is what I can show you.

    Willow: Ok?what is it?

    Man: This.

    Willow gasps too. Cut to Willow and Tara walking in a field holding hands. The sun is shining down on them. The year is 2004.

    Tara: Don't you juts love days like this?

    Willow: Yeah. Made better be a certain someone.

    Tara smiles.

    Tara: I guess it's just tomorrow, it's bringing back so many memories.

    Willow: But you didn't.

    Tara: No?you saved me.

    Willow: Well ok maybe just a little.

    Tara: Are you kidding? Not many people can get a bullet out like that.

    Willow: Xander saved Buffy. I saved you. Everything worked out.

    Tara: It does. In the end.

    Willow: Well this better not be the end, cos I'm still in the interval here.

    Tara and Willow laugh. Tara looks up at the sky.

    Tara: It looks like it's gonna rain.

    Willow: I can put a stop to that.

    Willow shoots some yellow sparks at the clouds. They part and the sun shines on them.

    Tara: You, uh, you missed a spot.

    Tara shoots on spark at the last remaining cloud. She and Willow smile at each other. The continue looking at each and do not notice a small slope ahead. Willow trips and Tara falls with her. They roll to a halt laughing. Tara is on top of Willow.

    Willow: Sorry.

    Tara: It doesn't matter.

    Tara: Guess the wound's still there.

    Willow: Shouldn't we get it checked?

    Tara: No, it'll always be there.

    Cut to Chris. He looks impatient.

    Chris: Are you sure this is a dream because I-

    Chris gasps. Cut to him and Dawn walking into a restaurant. It's 2004. He looks around and then recognises someone.

    Chris: They're over there. You're gonna love them. And they'll love you.

    Kirsty: Wow, everyone's been talking about it here.

    Dawn: They have? Well yeah it was pretty crazy. But everyone I know was ok so it's not too bad.

    Kass: Well that's good at least. Nothing amazing happens here.

    Chris: Except next week remember?

    Kass: Oh yeah how could I forget! Chris here's actually gonna star in a movie!

    Dawn: I know I'm really looking forward to it. You'll all be there?

    Kirsty: Sure wouldn't wanna miss Chris' big night.

    Chris: Aw, you guys. But it's not like I'm in Scooby Doo or anything. It's just a normal movie.

    Marie: Well we'll be cheering you on offset. Quietly cheering.

    Everyone laughs.

    Dawn: I'm just gonna go to the toilet, I'll be back before they have to take our orders.

    She gets up and walks away.

    Chris: So what do you guys think?

    Robby: She's definitely a looker!

    Kass rolls her eyes.

    Kass; If you want a girl's opinion ? or well five ? she seems great.

    Chris: Thanks you guys.

    Cut to Siobhan. She is looking sceptical.

    Siobhan: This supposed to be some kind of a-

    She gasps. Cut to her in a house. It is 2010. She goes to the door and opens in. Dawn and Chris are stood there looking much older.

    Dawn: Hey!

    Siobhan: Hey so glad you could make it!

    They hug.

    Siobhan: Andrew's in the garden telling everyone another of his stories.

    Chris: Great I'll go join him if you don't mind.

    He walks past Siobhan and Dawn. Dawn walks with Siobhan through the house.

    Dawn: I can't believe it's already your one-year anniversary!

    Siobhan: I know! Time flies so fast.

    Dawn: Any small bundles on the horizon?

    Siobhan: I'm not thinking that far ahead.

    Dawn: But maybe later?

    Siobhan: I dunno-

    Dawn: Oh come on, when I had Olivia, I was so happy.

    Siobhan: I know. It's just, well we seem happy as we are right now.

    Dawn: Well as long as you are, that's all that counts.

    They walk into the garden. A woman gets up to see them.

    Woman: Dawn! It's so nice to see you!

    Dawn: Julie, hey.

    Julie: How are you?

    Dawn: Pregnant again I'm afraid.

    Julie: Oh it'll be so great having another christening!

    Siobhan: Mum! She's not gonna be thinking that far ahead.

    Julie: Well why shouldn't she, after all remember it takes a long time to prepare for a baby!

    Dawn: I remember.

    Julie: Now why don't you sit down?

    Dawn: Sure. Hey Andrew.

    Andrew turns to Siobhan. He has light stubble all over his face.

    Andrew: Dawn! Long time no see.

    Siobhan: It's been three months Andrew.

    Andrew: Well it feels so much longer.

    Julie: Doesn't it just!

    Siobhan sits down. She smiles as everyone talks. Her mum begins to fade from the picture, and Andrew's seat begins to turn into a wheelchair.

    Siobhan: Mum?

    Julie: Yes dear?

    Siobhan: Are you ok?

    Julie: Never better dear, why do you ask?

    Siobhan: Oh um?no reason.

    Everyone continues to fade. They fade back to Siobhan with the man. She stares at him worriedly. Cut to Kennedy. She turns around and stares wide eyed in front of her.

    Cut to Kennedy sitting at a long dinner table in a huge hall with her mum and Willow. They are all eating dinner. The year is 2005.


    Kennedy: The wanted to sacrifice the baby?

    Mrs. Elisonne: I know isn't it absurd?

    Willow: Poor little thing!

    Mrs. Elisonne: Oh don't worry, I think it was sorted out.

    Willow: Oh, good.

    Mrs. Elisonne: Have you two any ideas about adopting?

    Kennedy: Mom!

    Willow: I don't think we've got much chance about that.

    Mrs. Elisonne: Well if you have any problems with state laws, remember who I work for.

    Willow: That's really great of you to say that.

    Mrs. Elisonne: Well we may be an evil law firm, but we try.

    Kennedy and Willow smile at each other.

    Mrs. Elisonne: Oh yes, Kennedy, before I forget, I scheduled that class for you. To help with your slaying.

    Kennedy: Mom you really didn't have to.

    Mrs. Elisonne: No I want you to have the best training. I mean Buffy is a great teacher I know, but this can introduce you to a lot.

    Kennedy: Well I'll try it out.

    Mrs. Elisonne: I think you'll love it. And Willow, um, would you me to get any magic classes for you or-

    Kennedy: Mom, Willow has the equivalent of a PHD in magic.

    Willow: I'm not that great.

    Kennedy: Are you kidding?

    Willow smiles but then frowns slightly. Cut to Willow and Tara.

    Tara: Are you kidding?

    Cut back to present day. Kennedy is frowning to.

    Mrs. Elisonne: Something wrong girls?

    Willow: Um nothing, just some d?j? vu.

    Kennedy: Me too.

    Willow's hair begins to turn black, as do her eyes. Flames suddenly appear around Kennedy's mom.

    Kennedy: Mom you're not going anywhere are you?

    Mrs. Elisonne: No honey, I'm staying right here.

    Kennedy: Ok. Just felt like you were gone for a second.

    Willow smiles at Kennedy. Veins have appeared on her face. Kennedy looks a little concerned. Cut to Kennedy. She shakes her head suddenly. Cut to Andrew. He opens his eyes wide. Cut to him, Jonathon and Warren sat in their van from season 6. They are watching a movie.

    Warren: You know why did they even bother making these.

    Jonathon: Yeah, compared to Return of the Jedi, ep I and II really don't do it for me.

    Andrew: But Ewan McGregor's really cool in episode II. Oh and Amidala was pretty hot too.

    Jonathon: She doesn't compare to Leia.

    Warren: No way.

    Andrew: Does to.

    Jonathon: Ok arm wrestle?

    Andrew: You're on little man!

    They kneel at a table.

    Jonathon: 3, 2, 1-

    Andrew: So it begins! You're going down little guy!

    They struggle for a moment. Warren walks around behind Andrew. Andrew looks like he is about to win, when Warren pokes Andrew in the ribs. Andrew jumps and Jonathon wins.

    Jonathon: And Leia triumphs!

    Andrew: Hey no fair! You poked me!

    Warren: You shouldn't be such a girl then should ya!

    Andrew: I won't give you my limited addition Frodo!

    Warren looks worried.

    Warren: Oh, um, I'm sorry.

    Andrew: Well, I still might not.

    Jonathon: Frodo's lame. The limited addition Aragorn is way better.

    Andrew: Frodo's more expensive.

    Warren: Well remember Andrew that I'm giving you three of the rarest LotR cards there are.

    Andrew considers this.

    Andrew: Uh?ok.

    Warren: Yes! Andrew you're not that big a loser after all.

    Andrew smiles. He looks at Jonathon who is suddenly pale, rotting and has blood all over his shirt.

    Jonathon: What else do you have Andrew?

    Andrew: Not much?

    Andrew looks at Warren who's skin is peeling away.

    Andrew: What have you got Warren?

    Warren: I have this.

    Warren takes out a gun. Andrew looks uncertain. Cut to Andrew. He is on his knees looking shocked.

    He looks up. There is a quick montage of everyone looking up except for Buffy. The man looks at them.


    Man: That is what you desire. What could have happened. This world, as you know, is not simply four-dimensional. Many other aspects of space and time can contribute to alter the past, present and future. We can give you this.

    Everyone: But why would you?

    Man: Because?we can.

    Cut to Buffy. She is in a different place to the others.

    Buffy: What happens now?

      Small demon: Um?sir there may be a, a small problem.

      Larger demon: What!?

      Small demon: They're, they're not r-responding as we thought they would. They're still not b, believing it all.

      Small demon: S, sir?

      Larger demon: You heard me.

      Small demon: B, but isn't that a, a bit extreme sir?

      Larger demon: It is. But it's also the best part. Now do it.

      There is a quick flash of her lifeless body with blood streaming from her mouth.

      Anya: Fine.

      Xander stands up.

      Xander: No?

      Anya is suddenly behind him wearing her wedding dress. He turns around. Blood soaks through it.

      Anya: But it wasn't real.

      Joyce's image appears shining. The house is suddenly a wreck like it was in Conversations With Dead People.

      Joyce: Buffy won't choose you.

      Dawn: No!

      Joyce fades from everywhere. Buffy stares at Dawn.

      Buffy: She's really gone.

        ACT IV

        Silence by Jars of Clay begins to play. Everything that happens from now on is on slow motion. No sound apart from the music can be heard.

        Take
        Take till there's nothing

        Cut to Buffy smiling. The sun is shining down on a beach. The wind blows Buffy's hair gently. Buffy is wearing a white sleeveless top and a light purple skirt. A man's hands hold hers. She smiles at him.

        Nothing to turn to
        Nothing when you get through

        The camera scrolls up to show it is Spike. Then it changes to Angel. Both are wearing the same grey-blue short-sleeved shirt and black shorts. Buffy doesn't seem to notice the change. Hand in hand they stand together.

        Won't you break
        Scattered pieces of all I've been

        Buffy smiles at everyone. She and the man kiss, but his face is not seen.

        Bowing to all I've been
        Running to

        Cut to Buffy and Spike half laid down in the same scene. Both are barefoot and are lying on a rug on the beach. Siobhan and Andrew are running nearby with a kite, Siobhan wearing a purple bikini and Andrew wearing a white t-shirt and red shorts. Dawn and Chris are nearby throwing a ball to one another, Dawn wearing a black strappy top and three quarter length jeans and Chris wearing blue swimming shorts. Xander is with them, wearing a white shirt and navy shorts Kennedy and Willow are holding hands walking beside the others on the edge of the water. Kennedy is wearing a black bikini and burgundy skirt while Willow is wearing a green sleeveless top and darker green skirt. Giles is stood next to them talking, wearing a light blue short-sleeved top and jeans.

        Where are you?
        Where are you?

        Cut to Willow and Kennedy kissing. Cut to Siobhan and Andrew kissing. Cut to Dawn and Chris kissing. Cut to Buffy and Spike kissing, then she and Angel are.

        Did you leave me unbreakable?
        You leave me frozen?

        Cut to Buffy and Spike laughing. Cut to the others nearby smiling and talking.

        I've never felt so cold
        Thought you were silent

        Cut to Buffy and Angel standing up together still holding hands. Cut to the others nearby watching and smiling as they notice Buffy and Angel.

        And I thought you left me
        For the wreckage and the waste

        Cut to Buffy and Spike smiling at each other. He changes into Angel. The camera shows many other people on the beach smiling at Buffy and Angel and then Buffy and Spike. For a split second there is no one but Buffy and Angel and then Buffy and Spike as they kiss again. Then everyone is back.

        On an empty beach of faith
        Was it true?

        Cut to Buffy and Spike/Angel sitting down on the rug again. Giles walks up to them and begins talking. Xander is at a barbecue nearby as everyone else walks up.

        Cos I?I got a question
        I got a question

        A bullet hits Giles in the heart suddenly. His expression changes to pain as he falls back. Buffy and Spike/Angel look up in shock.

        Where are you?

        Cut to more gunfire. The camera cuts to nearby where the four Rogue Slayers minus Kelly are holding guns shooting at everyone. People near them get shot and fall to the ground dead as Buffy and Spike get up and begin to run.

        Scream

        Andrew turns to look at the Slayers. Siobhan screams.

        Deeper I don't wanna scream

        Andrew is shot multiple times. Chris pushes Dawn behind him to protect her. He too is shot multiple times. He falls back. Dawn looks horrified.

        I want you to hear me

        Siobhan looks angry and turns to the Slayers. So does Xander.

        Want you to find

        Dawn runs around the other side of Xander. Willow and Kennedy begin to follow Buffy and Spike/Angel.

        Cause I?

        Xander dodges an array of bullets. Siobhan pushes a deck chair out of the way. A sandcastle is destroyed by bullets.

        I want to believe

        Kennedy and Willow turn to look back at the scene. Siobhan punches Kirsty who falls.

        That all I pray is wrong

        Kass shoots at Dawn multiple times. She falls back dead, her expression distant.

        And all I claim is gone

        Line shoots at Xander who falls back into the barbecue dead.

        And I?

        Buffy and Spike/Angel continue running as the waves break beside them.

        I got a question

        Kass shoots in front of her. Siobhan is shot. She twists in mid air from the force of the shot and falls to the ground lifeless.

        I got a question

        More people fall down dead.. Kennedy and Willow are running and Kennedy is shot multiple times. She falls back.

        Where are you?

        Willow is shot several times to. She falls sadly to the ground. Buffy and Spike/Angel continue running with the Slayers in hot pursuir

        Yeah?yeah

        Buffy looks around her devastated. Buffy and Spike/Angel run on still.

        And well...I got a question

        Spike/Angel is shot in the back. He splutters. Buffy looks at him in shock.

        I got a question

        Buffy is holding Spike/Angel but he still falls to the floor. He lies on the ground spluttering still. Buffy is crying.

        Where are you?

        Spike looks up at Buffy.


        Spike: It'll be alright.

        Where are you?

        He changes into Angel.

        Angel: As long as you're here.

        Where are you?

        He smiles at Buffy she smiles back sadly. His smile fades. He changes from Spike to Angel one last time and then dies as Angel. Buffy cries.

        Where are you?

        Cut to Giles' body leant against the wall. Cut to Andrew lying with his eyes open across a chair. Cut to Chris lying on the ground with blood trickling from his mouth. Cut to Dawn's body with blood streaming down her. Cut to Xander's lying flat on his face in a pool of blood next to the barbecue. Cut to Siobhan lying in a broken position, with her eyes emptily looking upwards. Cut to Kennedy lying, blood streaming from the wound in her head and flowing into the tide. Cut to Willow lying on the ground next to Kennedy with blood pouring from her neck. "Silence" ends. Slow motion does to. Sound can be heard again.

        Buffy is weeping over Spike. A figure appears next to her. She looks up with tears streaming down her face.


        Buffy: Why?

        The man is stood there.

        Man: To show you. You can never live a normal life. You think that you can be happy with these people? Never.

        Buffy: I can I-

        Man: As long as evil remains, you will never be able to rest. These girls are not going to stop.

        The camera shows the Rogue Slayers frozen.

        Man: You are doomed Buffy Summers. As are all that follow you.

        Buffy stands up slowly. She stares at the man.

        Buffy: I may not be able to live a normal life. But I'm not gonna stop living.

        She punches the man in the face. He falls back and changes into the larger demon from before. The beach scene fades and Buffy and the larger demon are back in the dream world.

        Larger demon: You'll die.

        Buffy: Been there. Done that. Twice. And here I am now. Funny how much that really doesn't stop me.

        Larger demon: You can't-

        Buffy: Can't what? Can't fight you. You're nothing. You're a dream. Trying to stop me. Well you know what? Don't. Because I'm not gonna stop even if it kills me.

        She walks up to the demon and punches her fist through his face. He screams and the world fades.

        Cut back to the kitchen in the Summers' house. Everyone can move again. They all look around uncertainly.


        Dawn: (softly) Wow?

        THE END
