In order to save the world, Buffy again has to make a tough decision . life by a guilt-ridden Angel, with the help of Spike, Faith, and others. . Dungeons & Dragons Meets The DCEU: The Moral Alignments Of DC Characters. Buffy Summers (in Faith's body) is abducted by the Watchers Council Spike and Faith do not meet again until three years later, when the Slayer returns to.
And the Slayer Queen was smiling, meeting Faith's eyes over the heads of her curious charges, paying no attention to her own obvious signs of fatigue. Some of them recognized her—Rona grinned broadly, and Vi even offered a little wave—but nobody was stupid enough to think this was a time for reunion. Then she was back to business, regaining the attention of every one of the girls instantly.
Remember our first priority is rescue, so look for casualties and don't engage in battle unless you're attacked first. There could be a lot of innocents still lost here and don't think you're beyond mistaking one for a vampire. Anyone who picks a fight on her own answers to me, okay? She and Faith closed the distance between themselves, but kept their discussion to a minimum. Robin's gonna catch up by tomorrow. This is all I've got for a cleanup crew.
It was a relief to part company, not because Buffy's repeated thanks lacked sincerity, but just the opposite. Buffy was a Slayer, Faith was a Slayer, yet somehow, Buffy felt the need to thank her, when both of them were there for the same reason. It was another subtle reminder of their assigned roles, the leader and the loner, the one who used her powers to fulfill a sacred duty and the one who used them to do favors for the heroes.
Granted, it hadn't exactly been easy to get from Cleveland to Los Angeles, considering her status as an escaped convict, and sure, it was nice to be thanked for putting the effort in. But Robin had done most of the work, stowing her away on a cross-country passenger train she still wasn't sure howand she wasn't losing anything in the process because she had nothing to lose in the first place, and why would anyone think she wouldn't want to join a rescue mission in LA?
That was reason enough to show up here. It had been dark when Faith stepped off the train and it was still dark now, but she had been told beforehand that LA was still under a lot of magical influences and the unnaturally long night might stretch on for days. The city had kept its streetlamps on, though, so everywhere she went there was a ghostly yellow glow cast over everything.
She walked fast, on the alert, trying to discern cries for help among the sounds made by the rescue team. At least Buffy hadn't asked about Robin. She would sooner or later, though, and Faith wasn't looking forward to it.
Are you still together?
All the usual questions, all of them asked with Buffy's characteristic friendly interest. A few years ago, Faith would have answered with laughter, mocking Buffy's use of the word 'together', insisting that there was only one reason she would spend that much time with a guy.
Now, she knew she would just give a simple negative answer to the first question and try to evade the last one. Buffy had changed too, she reminded herself. She wasn't so innocent anymore, and she might even understand Faith's actions, the choices that had led her away from Robin. But there were some things about Buffy that would never change—here she was coming to the rescue, as always, and damned if Faith didn't know exactly who she wanted to find here—and she had no comprehension of how it felt to watch yourself turning into someone completely different.
Picking up some guy in a club and taking him home for a quick lay wasn't new.
Feeling guilty about it later was. Losing the affection of a much better man in the process, that was very new. Robin didn't even seem shocked by the incident, and to Faith's surprise, that was what really hurt about it. He was up front with her, as he always had been: I'm not asking you to be the girl next door for me.
But if we're going to have something, it's going to be exclusive, and if you don't think you're up for that, you need to say so. It was nothing but the path of least resistance. Being exclusive with a guy didn't scare her, but knowing for sure that she, Bad Slayer Extraordinaire, could settle down, that was the kind of earthquake that she didn't think her terrain needed right then. It was easier when she could remain in her own game, when nobody had any expectations of her. She hadn't known that the path of least resistance was going to feel so much like loss.
Her thoughts were interrupted by Buffy's voice, just a block away, shouting, "Angel! By the time she got there, Buffy was kneeling beside a prone form and touching his face with trembling fingers. Faith skidded to a halt. She saw twisted limbs and large red puddles, and his eyes were closed.
Of course, it was good news that he wasn't a pile of dust, but this wasn't Angel as she had been hoping to see him. It can heal him…" It wasn't Faith's place to say that she was a Slayer too, that she would have given her blood to save him, hell, she had already done it. Did Buffy know that?

So much had gone unsaid about what had happened in both of their lives since the days when Faith had chosen to be Buffy's kill instead of Angel's cure. Buffy had managed to get Angel's head cradled in her lap.
Now she reached for the Scythe with her left hand, and before Faith could raise any further protest, she cut herself on the inside of her right wrist and held the dripping wound against the vampire's mouth. The Scythe clattered to the ground and the Slayer wrapped her other arm around Angel's chest, her lips spilling words that sounded both soothing and frightened.
