"Chosen" is the twenty-second episode of season seven of the American supernatural drama series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the 145th episode overall, as well as the series finale. It was written and directed by series creator Joss Whedon and first aired on UPN on Tuesday, May 20th, 2003. In this episode, Buffy, the Scoobies and all of the new potential Slayers wage their final battle against the First and it's army of Turok-Han vampires. They embark upon a plan that is wreckless, foolhardy and dangerous to the extreme, but is also (according to Giles) "absolutely brilliant". However, not everyone will make it out alive!
