Buffy tries to convince Faith to face up to the consequences of her actions, but Faith thinks that being a Slayer puts her above the law. Buffy confides in Giles about the accidental murder and he decides not to involve the new Watcher, Wesley, knowing that Faith is extremely unstable. Angel tries to get through to Faith, but when Wesley discovers the truth and comes after her, Faith's trust in Buffy and the gang is destroyed. Written by Alex

Consequence follows Buffy after the death of mayor Wilkins deputy where's she rattled with guilt and trying to death with the consequences from her walk on the wild side. Faith on the other hand feels no remorse, hiding the body and trying to frame her fellow slayer for the murder. It really gets into Faith's mind as she runs away from her problems instead of confronting them. She can't realize that by doing so she only makes it grow coming back to But a her like the vampire master who chased her to Sunnydale. She also uses people so she doesn't have to feel without ever letting them help her based on up bringing with an abusive mother.

Another aspect is Angel knowing what Faith is going through and wanting to help her. He spent centuries as a vampire killing innocent victims and knowing once you go down the wrong road it's hard to turn back. It almost like he became her moral compass trying to lead her on the straight and narrow path towards redemption.
