Storyline

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.

The One With Faith's New Watcher...
6 December 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. The idea of an evil watcher is just so good. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes.

In this episode, Faith gets a new Watcher. A stuffy English lady, who I really don't like. I never liked her and it turns out, that I had a very good reason for it. She sends Faith and Buffy on a mission to retrieve a demon's claw-arm-thing. If someone were to put it on, they would become all powerful and be able to destroy a lot of things. When they find the claw- arm-thing, they take it to Angel for safekeeping. When the new watcher finds out where it is, she knocks out Giles and heads right on over. When she gets there, she tries to convince Angel that she is a perfectly upstanding citizen. But then, she tries to put the glove on, so she and Angel fight. When Faith sees that Giles is knocked unconscious, she assumes that it was Angel and she goes to find him. When she sees Angel and her new Watcher fighting, she starts attacking Angel. Then the Watcher puts the glove on and Faith realizes that she is fighting the wrong person. Buffy also showed up before, and she and Faith were also fighting. When the Watcher put the glove on she summoned some lightning, and she was pretty powerful. That was until Angel cut her arm off and the glove destroyed her.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
