Marcie Ross was a metaphor for high school. The show did something really interesting with her, also a metaphor for those kids who are bullied in school becoming the big bads in later seasons; see Jonathan. There was no reason to bring her back and I'm fine that they didn't. Fans take so quickly to certain characters and want to see more of them, even when they've outlived their reason for being on the show. Sunday the vamp from The Freshman is another one everyone seems to like, but she and Marcie were one shot characters only.
To be fair this could all be said about Spike. Remember he was originally going to be dust back in season 2. ;)

Oh definitely, but I for one am so glad he had the charisma that kept him around :)

As interesting as it is when the show does call backs to one shot characters I don’t think it would work. She became invisible because she was forgotten about and she was forgotten about again after she was taken. I actually liked that everything wasn’t wrapped up in a tidy bow.

Good point. While I'd have liked to see something with the invisible assassins school, your idea about one-shot characters makes perfect sense.
