Added DiffLines:

* AncientEvil: Giles [[MrExposition explains that the Ubervamp is one]]; it's part of a prehistoric race of vampires called the Turok-Han, the vampiric equivalent of Neanderthals...[[EvenEvilHasStandard beings feared even by their own present-day kin]].
-->'''Giles''': As Neanderthals are to human beings, the Turok-Han are to vampires. They're primordial, ferociously powerful killing machines, as single-minded as animals. They are the vampires that vampires fear. An ancient and entirely different race. And until this morning, I thought they were a myth.


* LuckBasedSearchTechnique: Giles and Buffy go looking for the underground cavern where she saw the First in "Amends". As Giles walks across a clearing he [[FloorboardFailure hears a great crash from behind him]], and turns to see a hole where Buffy was standing.
-->'''Buffy:''' Found it!

* GoryDiscretionShot: Spike being tortured in TheTeaser. The übervamp blocks the camera's POV, then we hear a terrible scream from Spike that seamlessly[[SmashCut smash cuts]] to the TitleSequence.

** -->'''Buffy:''' I'm beyond tired. I'm beyond scared. I'm standing on the mouth of Hell, and it's going to swallow me whole. ({{Beat}}) And it'll ''[[RegretEatingMe choke on me]].'' We're not ready? ''They're'' not ready. They think we're gonna wait for the end to come, like we always do. I'm done waiting. They want an apocalypse? Oh, we'll give 'em one. Anyone else who wants to run... do it now. Because we just became an army. We just declared war. From now on we won't just face our worst fears, we will seek them out. We will find them and cut out their hearts one by one until the First shows itself for what it really is. And I'll kill it myself. There's only one thing on this Earth more powerful than evil. And that's us. Any questions?

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: The majority of Spike's interactions with the First while the latter is impersonating Drusilla. At one point, an amused Spike points out that he knows he's talking to an illusion because the ''real'' Drusilla is ''far'' crazier than the First's impersonation. At the end of the episode, though incredibly worn out, Spike dares the First to keep torturing him, because no matter what, it won't make him back into its puppet. When The First angrily inquires as to why, Spike replies that Buffy's faith in him is just that much of a morale booster.
