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.

Yes I would have loved to see her as another character. She is a great actress. She could have been a main potential slayer with a backstory or even another slayer like Kendra. I could also see her playing a villian.

Yes. I like her as an actress and character. That said however I do quite like the way there is this huge, unbelievable thing of the government using invisible assassins and it's never mentioned again at any point LOL. It's so mad and so season 1.

Why is it the government . Personally i think i think it a group that works for the government but is not really part of it . That how come they seemed to
know so much in Season & then nothing in Season 4.
