Willow starts to learn more about the divine, when Miss Calendar tells Willow that her “rose quartz necklace has healing powers”. Unfortunately, Angel (Buffy’s vampire boyfriend) reverts to his former evil ways and kills Miss Calendar. As a result, Willow is asked (by the school principal) to take over the responsibility of teaching her lessons.
Whilst going through Miss Calendar’s lesson plans, Willow discovers Miss Calendar’s files on “paganism and magic”, together with some related internet links. Willow is unable to resist starting to read them – and later tells Giles that she finds the files “really interesting”. Willow then has one of her first dabbles in witchcraft, when she makes some scapulars (i.e. protection charms) using sulphur, to help protect the scoobie gang from a couple of ghosts (that are haunting their school). Willow’s reading does not stop there, and she continues to read Miss Calendar’s files for educational (and fun) purposes.
