* {{Foreshadowing}}: Buffy's prophetic dreams about the Master is the most obvious. Buffy's [[spoiler: fear of being buried alive comes true in Season 6]], as does [[spoiler: her fear of her father abandoning her]]. Giles' [[spoiler: fear of Buffy dying and his subsequent guilt also come true]]. How much of this was planned is up for debate, however, as Season 1 has a lot of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness and some foreshadowing to much later seasons may be accidental.
