Plot synopsis

The Master is displeased with Buffy for killing his vampires. Despite Darla's request to deal with her personally, he decides to send "The Three", warrior vampires, to kill Buffy. Buffy, Willow and Xander meet at The Bronze. When Buffy leaves, she finds a nasty surprise -- "The Three" are there. As she fights them off, Angel shows up to save her. In the fight, Angel is wounded, and Buffy nurses his wounds back at the house. As he takes his shirt off, a griffin tattoo on his back is revealed. When Buffy's mother arrives, Buffy claims Angel is helping her with history, and pretends to send him off, but instead sneaks him into her room. Angel spends the night in Buffy's room, sleeping on the floor.

As Xander hears about it the next morning, he claims that Angel is trying to seduce Buffy by saving her life and being a gentleman. Giles interrupts, identifying the vampires that attacked Buffy as "The Three", and saying she has nothing to worry from them, since they will offer their life to the Master in penance. Back at the Master's layer, he has Darla kill off the three, as a lesson to Collin.

In the library, Buffy begins weapons training. She is disappointed she has to begin with the quarterstaff rather than the "cooler" (in her mind) cross-bow, but easily defeats Giles in quarterstaff fight, and gets to learn the cross-bow in spite of Giles's initial plans. Back at her house, Buffy brings some food to Angel. When he says he read a little, she notices her diary askew and begins to explain away entries which would indicate her having a crush on Angel, as he stops her and tells her that her mother moved the diary, and that he would never read it. Angel and Buffy kiss, and as Angel pulls back, Buffy sees his vampiric visage, and he escapes without a word through the window. The next morning, Giles emphatically insists there are no good vampires, and that a vampire, lacking a soul, is not even a person. Xander urges Buffy to slay Angel.


Returning to his apartment, Angel sees Darla. She taunts him, telling him humans will never accept him for who he is. In the mean time, Giles finds Angel's history in his books, and notices the peculiarity that even though he used to be a menace, he has shunned the company of other vampires since he came to America. At the Master's lair, Darla insists that she be allowed to take care of Buffy, using Angel to kill her.


That evening, Willow and Buffy are having a hard time studying the history of the civil war as they are distracted by thoughts of boys -- Buffy of Angel and Willow of Xander. At Buffy's house, Darla shows up, telling Joyce she is there to help Buffy with history. Joyce invites her in, and Darla repays her by drinking from her. As Angel shows up, Darla dares him to drink from Joyce, and escapes. Buffy arrives to find Angel holding her mother, the latter bleeding from the neck. Buffy drives Angel away, and calls for an ambulance. Buffy misunderstands her mom when she tells her her "friend" came over, thinking she meant Angel rather than Darla. Buffy goes to the library, takes the cross-bow and goes to find Angel's apartment. At Angel's apartment, Darla taunts, telling him how easy it was to turn Buffy against him.


At the hospital, Giles, talking with her Joyce, suddenly realizes that it was Darla, not Angel, who bit Joyce. He runs off, with Xander and Willow in tow, to tell Buffy the news. Buffy, at the same time, finds Angel in the Bronze. Instead of out and out fighting, Buffy asks Angel for explanation. Angel explains that he once ate a gypsy girl, and in retribution the gypsies cursed him with a soul. The soul made him feel guilty over the evil he wreaked during the years. As Buffy and Angel reconcile, Darla shows up. Darla tells Buffy that she was the one who made Angel. In response to Buffy pulling out her cross-bow, Darla pulls out a pair of hand-guns, and proceeds to shoot at Angel as Buffy dives behind cover. Buffy shoots at Darla in the abdomen, but missing her heart. Hearing gun fire, Buffy's friends rush in, and distract Darla by shouting to Buffy that Darla was the one who bit Joyce. As Darla continues to shoot at Buffy and her friends, Angel shows up behind her, and stabs her in the heart with the cross-bow bolt that Buffy shot at her.


As Collin comforts the Master for losing Darla, Xander, Buffy and Willow are once again at the Bronze. When Angel shows up, Buffy goes to kiss him, and the cross he gave her in Welcome to the Hellmouth leaves its mark on him. Welcome to the Hellmouth (Welcome for short) is the very first episode of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ...


Arc significance

Angel, who was a mystery since Welcome to the Hellmouth, is finally revealed to be a "vampire with a soul". This episode marks the beginning of the doomed romance between Buffy and Angel, and indeed the end of the episode (where the very cross Angel gave to Buffy to protect her hurts him) can be seen to symbolize that romance, and possibly even foreshadow both the season 2 finale and the season 3 finale. Darla, the first character to be seen on-screen in the series, is killed here by the vampire she sired. This episode makes it clear why vampires are inherently evil (lacking a "soul", which represents the conscience in the buffyverse). This episode also expands on the relationships between the scoobies, showing Willow's crush on Xander and Xander's crush on Buffy, relationships which will all be important later on. Welcome to the Hellmouth (Welcome for short) is the very first episode of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ... // Plot synopsis Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details about some or all of the Whedonverse productions (Buffy, Angel, Fray, etc. ...
