Episode cast overview:
Rupert Giles (as Anthony Stewart Head)
Kate Rodger ...


Gwendolyn Post, an uptight, by-the-book English Watcher, arrives in Sunnydale claiming that the Watchers Council sent her as Faith's new one, or rather to assess the whole situation in Sunndydale, looking down upon understandably stressed Giles as on his library. She takes charge of their next, common mission: slaying the demon Lagos and destroying his weapon, the glove of Myhnegon, which is in the tomb of the von Hauptman family on Restfield cemetery. Meanwhile, Angel, back to his tender self, gets it for Buffy, but is seen kissing her by Xander, who reports this to Giles, who is deeply hurt, especially with Miss Post breathing down his neck, but doesn't tell her. With all of her friends angry and upset that Buffy didn't tell them that Angel had returned from Hell, Xander, worried and (despite kissing Willow again) again maliciously goes behind Buffy's back and informs Faith about Angel's return and persuades her to kill him before he may turn evil again.

Good suspense and dramatic irony
30 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The episode starts weak with the introduction of a new character, Faith's newest Watcher, but transcends into a wonderfully dramatic episode. The real action of the episode starts when Xander accidentally spots Angel while patrolling by himself near the graveyard and begins to follow him. He sees Angel and Buffy kiss and everything spins out of control.

Xander used to be one of my favourite characters of the show, particularly in the first season and the beginning of the second season when he and Cordelia began having a romance, but he's become one of my least favourite characters now. He is judgemental, conceited, and incredibly nosey. Of course after seeing Angel and Buffy canoodle, he feels like his observation is too important not to share with everyone. He gets Buffy into trouble and then acts high and mighty to make himself look like the hero, when he's really acting like the devil's advocate.

I suppose not much of this is relevant to the quality of the episode, but it makes for great drama. Towards the end of the episode, the suspense is absolutely gripping. Faith's new Watcher is revealed to be a villain, Faith and Xander are planning to kill Angel, Giles is unconscious, several of the characters are in the dark about the truth of the events and the audience are at the edge of their chair screaming their throats hoarse.

It's a great episode of Buffy. So far, it's my favourite episode of the third season. I'm starting to like Faith more and am looking forward to seeing her and the others in the upcoming episodes.
