    If anything needs to be addressed in this arc, it's the pacing and framing of the story. Whedon is cutting back and forth between characters very rapidly. The frantic focus is justified to an extent, but it could still be toned down somewhat. The final few pages leave me hopeful this will be the case in later issues. Whedon had the chance to cut loose and go wild in this issue, but the arc shows signs of narrowing its focus a bit from here on out. There's plenty more to do and explore in these final issues. I just hope Whedon has room to explore it all while not ignoring the character relationships that have always been the backbone of Buffy. Read Full Review
