In 2002, a group of Watchers, including Lydia, Nigel, and Philip, were reunited to report to director Quentin Travers about the numerous attacks on the Council around the world. Quentin confirmed that the First Evil was responsible, and told the group to prepare for battle. Seconds later, the Watchers Council headquarters exploded, in an attack orchestrated by Caleb.
Behind the Scenes
- In "Consequences", the telephone number Wesley Wyndam-Pryce dials when contacting the Watchers Council appears to be a correct one, beginning with 11-44. Indeed, the international calling code from the US to the UK is 011-44-telephone number.
- The exact location of the headquarters is undetermined except for being in England:
- In episode "Consequences", Wesley tells Faith Lehane: “By the order of the Watchers Council of Britain... I am exercising my authority and removing you to England, where you will accept the judgment of the disciplinary committee;” and Rupert Giles mentions as well: “Which means that Faith will be soon on her way back to England to face the Watchers Council.”
- In "Who Are You", Faith mentions England three times in reference to Buffy’s destination when taken by the Watchers Council Special Operations Team.
- In "Triangle", both Tara Maclay and Joyce Summers refers to Giles meeting with the Council as him going to England.
- In "Checkpoint", Buffy Summers mentions the country when telling the Council: “You guys didn’t come all the way from England to determine whether or not I was good enough to be let back in.”
- The non-canon comic arc "Viva Las Buffy!" the Watchers Council uses a building described as outside of London.
- The non-canon novel "Spike and Dru: Pretty Maids All in a Row" locates the Watchers Council headquarters at the far end of Great Russell Street, in London.
