Meanwhile Spike sends the order of Taraka, four deadly assassins who can assume any form, to eliminate the Slayer while, as Giles and Willow's research soon learns, a special cross stolen from the tomb of inventor Dulac, a theologian and mathematician, is added as key to his coded manuscript a vampire minion stole stole from Giles' library to find a cure for Spike's weakened, crazy vampire lover Drusilla...

Goofs

The shot of the 'suitman' in the house of his first victim, shows his 'maggot-arm' turning into a human one, hand to just under the armpit. His arm shows no sleeve. In the shot right after that, he reaches for his cup of tea and you can see that his sleeve is rolled up to his elbow. See more »

What's my line? pt1

The Good; Love Buffy's miniskirt and booties, very hot. The neighbours scream blending into the plane's engine noise. Will and Oz, awwww! Buffy ice-skating, you wonder who's better now, SMG or Michelle 'Ice Princess' Tractenberg? Or maybe Julie Benz who is also apparently was once rated 12th best in the US. Buffy's gesture with the torch when Giles suggests she consider law enforcement as a career. Death by iceskate! Buffy's paranoia as she walks through careers day. The Xander/Snyder faceoff. Cordy's little expression at the thought of free cosmetics. Buffy's look of shock at the final line.

The Bad; Kendra's accent for one although if she was taken from her parents as a child and raised in the UK you'd expect it to be a mishmash.

Best line; Cordy; "What am I, mass transportation?" Xander; "That's what guys say but it's just locker room talk"

Questions and observations; A small town like Sunnydale must have a pretty huge airport to handle a 747? Why has no one tried to hire the Order of Taraka before now? Willy the Snitch for the first time. Angel tortures him, of course. Xander refers to the Scooby gang for the first time. First sign of Will's frog fear. Is this the first appearance of Mr Gordo? Also Dalton who will reappear as Spike's lackey in future eps. Xander breaks into Buffy's house very easily,for such a dangerous town everyone seems very slack. What happened to the Slayer rule about not killing humans, Kendra tries to kill Buff with the axe. 10/10 great stuff
