"Oh, that's right, there can only be one. As long as I'm alive, there is no one else."
The reveal of Kendra is handled quite well and not telegraphed at all. They do a really good job of making it seem like she is one of the three bounty hunter villains of the episode, and the reveal that she's another Slayer is a well-executed twist and is well-placed at the end of the episode. We're led into assuming that she attacks Angel because he's on the side of the Scoobies, when in fact she wants to slay him because he's a vampire.
- This episode introduces Willy, the owner of the vampire/demon bar in Sunnydale. Not only is he good for comic relief, but his existence also serves to develop the sense of this demon subculture existing in Sunnydale.
- This episode features the first mention of the term "Scooby Gang" in dialogue.
- According to the commentary, Sarah Michelle Gellar is a skating fan and hobbyist, which is the reason it was incorporated into the show.
- We see some nice daytime location filming in the "graveyard," which is something not seen very often on this show. It looks pretty nice, considering it's actually a parking lot.
- When Buffy and Giles are discussing relics in the crypt Buffy says, "Note to self: Religion, freaky." This show's attitude toward religion is kind of interesting, but I'm not entirely sure what to make of it. There's more food for thought in the following episode.
- I love the scene where Buffy is walking through the high school hallway, paranoid that anyone might be a bounty hunter out to kill her. [HIGHLIGHT FOR SPOILERS] Of course, the police recruiter woman, who is one of the first people she sees in this scene, is the bounty hunter.
- As always, beware of the audio commentary of this episode. It's full of spoilers and lots of them.
