Episode Recap

Buffy's Mom-sponsored shopping trip to the mall is interrupted by Lyle Gorch, one of two vampire brothers from the Wild, Wild West. The next day in school, Xander and Cordelia continue to keep their blossoming relationship a secret, and the class is given raw eggs to look after as an exercise in responsibility. The eggs are not chicken spawn, but contain mind-possessing face hugger creatures which are taking over the school. Xander inadvertently avoids being taken, by the simple expedient of boiling his egg to make it easier to look after. Buffy stabs her face hugger with a pair of scissors. The rest of the gang are taken, and knock the two of them out. There is a giant Bezoar demon under the school, which is laying the eggs. Buffy and Xander fight their way into the chamber where the Bezoar lives, but the Gorch brothers arrive as well, and fight some of the possessed as well. Tector Gorch is eaten by the Bezoar, Buffy kills it and Lyle wisely bugs out.
