1 DAY!!! (2 DAYS FOR THE UK!!!) I too think it would be good if they did maybe 2 pages per issue of this arc, on flashbacks to fight scenes and important moments in the buffy/ faith relationship. Maybe from season 4 and 7.

Great issue! I agree about the extreme shortness. This issue seemed to be the fastest read.
Loved Faith. Hilarious. "You... want to kill Elizabeth?" I'm excited to see what's going to happen between Faith and Gigi. Is Faith going to team up with her to take out Buffy? The battle was wicked cool and I think Georges did a lot better with the likeness of Eliza in this issue. I wonder if it was Roden that was watching Buffy and the other Slayers in #1, judgeing by the pictures of Buffy.

It did seem shorter..but then again it seems like we'd already seen half the issue from the previews and stuff.
The stakes are definitely being raised. I really hope Faith DOES NOT team up with them. There's no way Buffy's gonna get killed off. I'm sure if it came down to it, she would kill Faith if she had to.
1) Buffy's dream makes more sense now..."The Queen is Dead"
2) Maybe Faith will re-enact the battle from Graduation Day...but this time she'll be "Buffy" and Gigi will be the "Faith". Meaning Faith does end up stabbing her in the end.
3) I wonder what Roden meant by saying Faith was a fellow "blue blood"??
EDIT: I also have a feeling that Buffy shows up simply because Giles lost contact with Faith, and might have assumed her dead. Which can also explain why Buffy might try to fight Faith when she finds her alive and with Gigi. That would make sense to me.

Loved the reveal at the end. However having read the preview pages, the issue was start stop for me. Especially when most pages were fight scenes. Liked the issue though. Can't wait to see Buffy in the next issue though. Somebody over at Dark horse speculated that Faith will have to pretend to be bad to get in with the knowledge of Gigi and Roden, and that's why the next cover shows her battling buffy.

Loved this issue but i loved all the issues so its no surprise. I think the art work f Faith is better in this one then Issue 6. I loved the beginning part with the flash back and all and the end where you just see Buffy's images and the knife and the badass evil slayer it just makes me wanna find out whats going to happen more.
I think (well I'm hoping) Faith will team up with Gigi i would love to see Buffy have to fight them both.

I now agree that faith will have to re- enact the graduation fight scene but her as buffy and gigi as faith. But I'd also love to see Buffy have to fight them both but i don't see that happening as i find it a little farfetched.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought it seemed really short. But going back and counting the pages, there's 3 devoted to the "Graduation Day" flashback, 3 to the Dawn/Willow scene, and 6 to the gargoyle fight. That leaves just 10 to really advance the story. I get why they don't wanna completely lose touch with the gang in Scotland for long stretches of time, but still, I thought the Dawn/Willow scene might've been better left out in favor of 3 more Faith/Gigi pages. Especially since, as a Michelle Trachtenberg fan, I take offense to the inaccurate comment about her itty-bitty... oh, never mind. Off-topic.
I did like this issue a lot, but because of the short-itude of it, I gotta put it slightly behind #6. At least the artwork on Faith improved in this one.
And despite her killing the slayer last issue, I'm still just not getting the uber-evil vibe off Gigi yet. I'm now seriously doubting that she's gonna get killed by the end of this arc. Either Faith will find a way to turn her around by the end of #9, or she'll get away and eventually be reformed at some point further down the line...
