    There are 3 theories I can come up with.

    1 - It's Buffy when she was younger
    2 - She's the ghost of a previous victim of the Gentlemen
    3 - She's the princess mentioned in the fairytale

    Which one do you think or do you have more theories?

    I'd always assumed number 1, but I find I like option 2 and 3 even better!

    I always thought it was the Princess in the story...but I think it's perfectly valid that it could be baby Buffy as well :)

    I always thought it was lil' Buffy. She has a passing resemblance to the Buffy we see in S5 'Weight Of The World' as I remember.

    I feel like Buffy would have mentioned if she were the little girl in her dream...I think it was either the princess or a victim of the gentlemen.
    Of course I could be wrong :)

    It could be the little girl from the Wolfram & Hart senior levels where the elevator got off.

    Could be the Cheese guy's daughter?.....it was in a dream after all.... ;)

    Seriously though.
    Not sure why Buffy would dream a young version of herself to warn her in her dream? She had not encountered them as a child & they didn't prey only on young children.
    If the dream was some kind of warning sent by the PtB or suchlike then it would most likely be someone connected with the story (Princess/Victim), but if it was just a prophetic Slayer dream it could just be a random visualisation created by her subconscious to narrate the story......Joss liked to play with the randomness of dreams.....

    I think the little girl is just a little girl. I have odd people in my dreams all the time that aren't in there for any particular reason. I don't think she was supposed to be anything but atmospheric.

    I never thought about it. I assumed it was just a random creepy little girl which is a cliche in the horror genre. But I like the idea that it is the princess from the fairy tale.

    Like @Fuffy Baith, I just thought it was a play on the creepy little girl cliche used in horror stories, to warn the hero about the villain.....



    I don't think it's the princess either. Usually in fairytales, the prince saves the day, so I always saw the princess saving the day as simply a metaphor for Buffy saving the day, rather than the little girl being the princess, or being Buffy herself, but it is an interesting theory....
