Buffy Summers and Willow are talking at their lockers about how Willow's parents want her to see Oz less using her B+ as a reason. Buffy comments she would be happy to get Willow's B+ and having Angel's attention would be good if it was not so frustrating to be close without touching. Shortly after, Buffy, Xander and Willow are sitting on the school stairs talking about tomorrow, which is Halloween. Since it is Halloween in Sunnydale they are trying to figure out what fun to have. But, Principal Snyder shows up and once again Buffy and the Scooby Gang are wrangled into taking around younger children in costume for Trick or Treat. Giles and Buffy have a conversation in the Library about her duties and schedule. Giles wants Buffy to patrol that night rather than Halloween leaving Buffy wondering when she'll have time to study. After school, Willow and her parents have another argument over Oz and she leaves the house angrily. Later, walking along a road after sunset, she is approached by a truck with four people in it that turn out to be vampires! They take Willow away with them. Buffy wakes up Halloween morning to be told by her mom, Joyce Summers, that Willow has been missing since the night before. She immediately gets together to Giles and Xander to figure out what to do. Oz joins them and after figuring out what her route to Oz's house and the Bronze might be, they all take to the streets to try and find evidence of what may have happened. Buffy comes upon Willow's bag and Giles finds tire marks that indicate a high-speed acceleration nearby. With no other clues, the Scoobies get ready for Trick or Treating determined to find clues of what has happened to Willow. Buffy, dressed as Michael Myers, is managing well until one of her charges slips away. She finds him at the Spook House, that appears abandoned. The kids dare her to knock on the door, which she gives into as a way to get them to go home early. As she approaches the door, she notices a truck in the driveway - not a usual sight at an abandoned house. In the back of the truck, she spies Willow's shirt! Rushing her charges home, Buffy quickly returns to the Spook House and breaks in to taking on the four vampires inside who are watching a Luke Perry movie and waiting to dine on several teenagers stored in the basement. The four vamps include one named Selke dressed in a strapless short gown and sporting a tight helmet of black hair with full red lips; a tall blonde female in skin tight leather pants and bustier only called Sweetie; a tall and lanky male vamp named Vezina; and Norris, a casually dressed vamp with round sunglasses and a crew cut. Taking them on, Buffy defeats them all and rescues the teens. Later, Selke is seen bleeding in a cemetery and Buffy and the Scooby Gang reunite at school the next day.
