What the hell was wrong with her?

"Faith!" Giles shouted again but still she remained motionless at the top of the chasm, mesmerised by the demon's swirling golden void. "Oh, bloody hell."

He scrambled up and grabbed her arm. "Come away. I don't care what you think you can see in there."

She flicked him away effortlessly, her gaze still on the mystical eddies below and Giles grew genuinely frightened. "Please."

"But I can see what happens, Giles. A cheap motel, a bottle of scotch, a handgun..."

"You're stronger than that, Faith."

She turned and looked at him so sadly.

She turned and looked at him so sadly. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to say that...” The tears in her eyes began to cascade slowly down her cheeks.

“Buffy, I...”

Buffy held up her hand to stop him. “I’m the Slayer and I don’t have a choice.” Her voice was small as she whispered, “I wish I did.”

“I wish that I could...” Giles’ voice trailed off into nothingness. No matter how much he might wish otherwise his Slayer was going to die tonight and there was nothing he could do to stop it.

After all, it was her destiny.
