"The issue of a Watcher’s role in curtailing the threat posed by a slayer subtly informs two defining periods of Buffy and Giles’ relationship in the show, which directly inform season eight (and this issue). The first centres around Angel in season two. The second centres around Spike in season seven. The two are somewhat antitheses of each other, in-series. Season eight synthesizes them."

(SPOILER) A Watcher's Job: On Giles' Story in Season Eight (spoilers for #39). Interesting take on Giles' journey and motivations throughout the series up to and including Season 8.
