The scene in which Buffy, Xander, Willow, and Giles stand and discuss what they'll do the next day, which ends with Giles saying to himself "The Earth is definitely doomed" is an homage to the very first storyline of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
(1997) which takes place over the first two episodes of season 1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Harvest
(1997) ends with Buffy, Xander, and Willow walking away talking about ways for Buffy to get herself kicked out of school, and Giles turns and mutters "The Earth is doomed". See more
When Buffy has told the Scoobies her plan about going down into the Hellmouth, Willow starts talking about how it's beyond anything she's ever done. As she says this she is looking in Buffy's direction, but as she continues and the camera cuts away, her reflection can be seen in a nearby mirror - she is suddenly looking straight ahead of her and then turns to look in Giles's direction. She is then suddenly looking back in Buffy's direction as the camera cuts back to her. See more
So here's the part where you make a choice. What if you could have that power, now? In every generation, one Slayer is born, because a bunch of men who died thousands of years ago made up that rule. They were powerful men. This woman is more powerful than all of them combined. So I say we change the rule. I say my power, should be *our* power. Tomorrow, Willow will use the essence of this scythe to change our destiny. From now on, every girl in the world who might be a Slayer, will be a Slayer....
