She joins the police, the one thing she never wanted to do. Giles and Andrew plan the future of the Council, leaving Buffy festering in the SFPD. Buffy should be running the Council, she should be in charge, but she's been pushed to the sidelines doing a job she rejected as a teenager. Even if you believe Buffy would wear a uniform and carry a gun for a living (a woman who hates guns and has rejected them her whole life) surely no one can believe Faith would do the same?How was the ending anti-Buffy?
But if you are going to bring her back, she might as well not be in hell. Because Happy Ending.
