This was added today:
- and implied to have also been a Slayer
I just watched this episode a week or so ago, and don't recall any implication that the Incan princess was a Slayer at all. Did I miss something? Or is this pure speculation? -- sulfur 18:46, October 7, 2009 (UTC)
I can see how this could be perceived as an implication of slayerness but something in the transcripts points to the contrary.
- “You remind me of someone from very long ago: the Inca Princess...They told her that she was the only one. That only she could defend her people from the nether world... Out of all the girls in her generation..she was the only one...”
- ―Inca Mummy to Buffy
Buffy goes on to say how familiar the story is to her.
The Inca Mummy then says
- “She was sixteen, like us. She was offered as a sacrifice and went to her death.”
- ―Inca Mummy
One could still argue between these two points:
1 - She was a princess chosen to sacrifice her life by defending her people against 'the nether world'
2 - She was a princess chosen to sacrifice her life via physically sacrificing herself to death, as part of some spell or as an agreement between her people and 'the nether world' (threat)
I think it's always been assumed to be #2, but I can see how the words could lean towards #1. I would argue that the words were chosen to specifically relate her to buffy's role, not to her having slayer status. Hakatri 19:14, October 7, 2009 (UTC)Hakatri
