* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: After Giles and Willow are captured, Xander gives Buffy a scathing WhatTheHellHero speech invoking this, pointing out that she could have stopped the attack if she had just worked with them for five minutes.

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: Shortly after Buffy leaves for the Bronze, seemingly walking into a trap set by the vampires, Giles finishes translating the revivification ritual and discovers that "closest" to the Master actually means those who were physically present when the Master died[[note]]Willow, Cordelia, Ms. Calendar, and Giles himself[[/note]]. Giles doesn't even finish his sentence before he realizes what this means. A double dose of this trope follows when he sees vampires crowding into the library behind Willow and Xander, and realizes the "trap" was actually meant to lure Buffy away so the Order could capture them without interference.
-->'''Giles''': It ''is'' a trap. It just isn't for her.



** Xander gives a bristling one to Buffy, including threatening to kill her if Willow is hurt because of Buffy's refusal to work with them.

-->'''Xander''': I don't know what your problem is, what your issues are... and as
of Buffy's refusal to work right now, I officially don't ''care''. If you had worked with them.us for five minutes, you could've stopped this.

* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** Xander and Willow going on about how the most excitement they had was burying the Master ("We got to wear robes").
** Principal Snyder crowing to Giles that Buffy has a certain smell about her. "I smell trouble. [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E22BecomingPart2 I smell expulsion. And just the faintest aroma of jail]]."
** TemptingFate: Joyce saying she'd settle for Buffy making it through the school year without getting kicked out.
*** Also Giles. "It's hardly the worst mistake you're going to make." He has no idea.
** This won't be the last time Buffy will deal with trauma by either shutting herself off or lashing out at her friends with {{Jerkass}} behaviour.
** Loads of this to Buffy versus Angelus.
