Storyline

For her upcoming 18th birthday, Buffy declines the Scooby gang's offer of a big party, hoping to celebrate with quiet reflection and a traditional trip to the ice show with her father. But Buffy doesn't know that preparations are being made for a life-threatening rite of passage that drains the slayer of her powers and then entraps her with a powerful and psychotic vampire foe.

Quotes

[Travers explaining to Giles why he has been fired from his duty as Buffy's watcher]
Quentin Travers: Your affection for your charge has rendered you uncapable of clear and inpartial judgement. You have a father's love for the child, and that is useless to the cause.
