It's Cordelia's birthday, and everyone gives her presents. Suddenly, she falls unconscious, stricken with a vision.
Unable to communicate with the gang, Cordelia is taken on a journey in spirit form by Skip, who explains that as a human, she is simply not strong enough to take the visions. They will very soon kill her.
Fortunately, there's a choice. She could be a rich, famous and well-loved soap star instead. Or she could be a part-demon, penniless Champion.
