A spell Willow does to discover the next potential slayer in Sunnydale reveals Dawn as a potential. Giving Dawn a sense of worthiness and a purpose she agrees to help Amanda (Sarah Hagan, Freaks and Geeks, 90210), a girl from school to take down a vampire. But she makes a dire discovery once she’s trapped and takes charge in the only way she knows how. In a sweet, Xander-ific moment, he tells Dawn, “they’ll never know how tough it is, Dawnie. I saw you last night and I see you working here today. You’re not special. You’re extraordinary.” Feeling special, responsibility, teaching lessons, and contributing are all themes in Potential (episode 12), an interesting Dawn-centric story.
