What is it About?

A rogue unknown slayer turns evil and Giles offers Faith a chance to redeem herself by stopping her.

My Thoughts:

So here we find Faith still troubled, still just Faith.  Giles gives her a job to get rid of a evil slayer whose has a plan to become Queen of the Slayers.  Faith interweaves herself into the rich British world of the slayer.   Faith finds herself in a dilemma bonding with the evil slayer.

Of course this not the first time we see Faith struggle with the dark side of her slayer powers. One does wonder if she had been told the whole story before going in on the job would things have turn out differently for Faith and Buffy.

One thing I love about the comics is you may think you know where the story line is going but it always turns out you do not know.  That is what makes it that more interesting to read and while I have been a little slow keeping up with the comic I still think the comic fits so well into the series.  In fact maybe better because there is so much that is done I don’t know if it would have been able to be done on the tv series.
