Synopsis[edit | edit source]
With no Watcher, no idea how to harness the power in her and no idea where it came from, Faith has fallen back on old habits — and morals — to guide her.
The origin of Faith is revealed here for the first time, with a shocking ending to this issue!
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- One of the films Faith watches has the same dialog that her original counterpart and Mayor Wilkins had about calling her a "firecracker" in the episode "Graduation Day, Part One."
- This story begins before Faith was called as a Slayer (Hellmouth, Part Five), then shows after Wesley arrives in Boston (issue #17), then ends before Faith meets the Scoobies in Sunnydale (issue #19).
