Xander was talking about Buffy because when he said "The boss needs an alone time." Buffy answers, "Is there another kind?"And when did they start referring to Giles as the Boss, or did I misread that and Xander was referring to Buffy?
Now that you mention it, it is a bit funny he found that spell straight away....Giles found a useful spell in that book pretty fast, huh?
I think Buffy's problem with Giles is the same as Faith's problem with him. Faith was jealous that Buffy is his main girl when she found out she was on a mission to save her, and Buffy's upset cause she thinks she's no longer Giles' main girl because he is working with someone they can't trust instead of working with her.It's a shame that Giles and Buffy aren't on speaking terms. I'm not quite sure how it came to that.
