“The Gift.” The Season 5 finale (and one-hundredth episode of the entire series) finds Buffy and the Scoobies wondering how to defeat Glory, a hell-god who has been exiled from her demon dimension and whose plan to return home will destroy the world in the process. Glory has kidnapped Dawn, Buffy’s little sister, because her blood will open a portal through which Glory can escape to her other realm — but killing Dawn in the process. The Scoobies suggest killing Dawn before Glory can perform the needed ritual, but Buffy decides to wage an all-out attack instead. By the end of the battle, Buffy will release the meaning of her “gift” — as described by the First Slayer in an earlier dream-vision — and understand the true meaning of sacrifice. The ending of “The Gift” is truly one of the most-emotional scenes in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” (Original air-date: May 22, 2001)
