Empty Places (episode 19) sees Sunnydale become a ghost town as residents leave in droves, fearful of the impending darkness. Faith and Buffy disagreements cause a divide among the potential slayers. Buffy is usurped as leader and Faith put in charge. Defeated and tired she tells Faith, “ Don’t be afraid to lead them. Their lives are in your hands.” Leadership, war, strategy, clinging on to hope, vote, guiding and letting go are all themes in this episode that sees the Slayer without her friends.
