** Giles is once again accused of being self-conscious about one of his students surpassing him in skill. Spike does it now (about Buffy) just as Willow did (about herself) in "Grave".


* [[HoYay Les Yay]]: The First tells Faith that all she ever wanted was for Buffy to love her. Faith doesn't deny it.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* TheChainsOfCommanding: Faith starts to feel them. Buffy lampshades it to Spike when he offers to kill Faith. "That's my problem. I say the word, some girl dies...every time."

->''"You listen to me. I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I'd prefer you didn't. Don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker.
I don't follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. I've made a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you ... Here, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say "I love you", it's not because I want to be [[TheChosenOne the one]].
->'''Spike:'''
you, or because I don't want to be this good-looking and athletic. We all can't have [[StealthPun crosses you. It has nothing to bear]].
do with me. I love what you are. What you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand, with perfect clarity, exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the One, Buffy."''

* AHouseDivided: Played straight until Faith asserts her authority; then the Scoobies and Potentials fight as a well-oiled team. This implies that all they needed from Buffy was some proper leadership and a plan that made sense.
