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.

Did You Know?


At 36:14, as Buffy says, "Faith, we can figure this out," you can see the tip of the boom microphone dipping into the top of the frame. See more »


Giles: I won't remind you that the fate of the world often lies with the Slayer. What would be the point? Nor shall I remind you that you've jeopardized the lives of all that you hold dear by harboring a known murderer. But, sadly, I must remind you that Angel tortured me... for hours... for pleasure. You should have told me he was alive. You didn't. You have no respect for me or the job I perform.

Xander sees Buffy kissing Angel and tells the gang, later he tells the Faith, who tries to kill Angel
10 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this episode but-what was Xander thinking trying to kill Angel with Faith, Buffy would probably kill them. Also, how does he have the right to criticize Buffy for keeping Angel, I mean he has had two girlfriends (Cordelia and Willow) who he has kept secrets. Also, he didn't tell Buffy about Willow trying to cast the spell to get Angel's soul in "The Becoming Part 2". And considering the number of times that Angel has saved his life-how can Xander hate him so much? (Actually, as long as Angel is good, I don't understand how anyone couldn't like him.) Anyway, I liked how it was hard to tell who the villain was, I was kinda shocked when it turned out that it was that annoying watcher. I really liked this episode.
