Story by: Jet Wolf and Ultrace
Written by: Jet Wolf, Novareinna and Ultrace

Premiering: Tuesday, 14 December 2004, 8pm EST

Next week, on the season finalé of The Chosen ...

It's the final battle and the Scoobies have a plan...

Outside Slayer Central, all the Junior Slayers, almost a hundred, have been gathered. They stand in formation, waiting.
Fade to Willow and Tara joining hands, closing their eyes.
Dissolve between Buffy, Kennedy and Faith, each surrounded by Slayers, all waiting expectantly.
Dissolve between Giles at his desk with a grim but determined expression, Xander bouncing a
battleaxe on his shoulder, Dawn with a strange look on her face, her hand reaching out.

...but so does the Assemblage.

A large glowing orb pulsates with power as four mages surround it, tending to it.
Robespierre, shouting out orders, his face flushed and his scar a stark white against the red skin.
Super Slayers begin pouring into a large room, rushing to meet a wall of the Council's Junior Slayers.
Robespierre lowering a recently fired crossbow, a smile of supreme satisfaction on his lips.

Magick ...

Madrigan, grinning with delight, wiggling his fingers "goodbye" at someone.
Xander struck with a blast of power so forceful it sends him flying across the room. He crumples to the ground, unmoving.

... versus magick.

Willow and Tara under serious strain, obviously losing the battle they're fighting.
Willow: We need more.
Tara: More power ...
Willow: And I can get it.

Slayer ...

Buffy, swinging her katana like she was born with it in her hand. Her teeth are clenched; she's fighting for her life.
Kennedy, surrounded by Super Slayers. They're overwhelming her.
Faith, sweat and blood mingling on her face. She looks around wildly.

... versus Slayer.

The bodies of Junior Slayers a thrown aside like used Kleenex. Judith stands in the center, a confident smile on her lips.
Judith (V.O.): Ask and ye shall receive.
Faith charges with a bellow of muderous rage.
Buffy (V.O.): Faith!

Who can tell what's in the cards?

We hear a man's low, knowing, and thoroughly amused chuckle.
