Assassins. Creed
30 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An exciting two parter where Spike and Dru send assassins after Buffy. Meanwhile she tries to plan a romantic outing with Angel. This episode is full of tension as we don't know who the assassins are appearing as a normal door sales man until he turns into bugs, a cop coming to career day attempting to shot her and when at the icing rink grabbed from behind before she can pick herself off the floor.

Sarah looks beautiful as she skates across the floor with grace and beauty. The music accompany the scene is delicate, lovely and made me fall in love with her. Another aspect was the surprise ending where a would be assassin admits she's a slayer leaving is on a shocking cliff hanger. It leaves so many questions about the slayer line, can Buffy still call another and to see how they would take on evil as a team.
