For artist Dan Bellamy and his new bride Elaine, a visit at the world's greatest, most up-to-date cruise send represents greater than simply the honeymoon of a life-time: it's also a party of the growth Dan has made towards beating the agoraphobia that has plagued him given that he suffered a bad knife assault years earlier.
The send is an ideal floating paradise, but if Dan spots what he thinks is a physique being thrown overboard, he starts off to suspect that no longer everyone aboard the Oceanus is there for a vacation.
Soon, Dan will become aware of that there are a few things worse than homicide, and the physique he observed is simply the start. simply because anything is coming for the passengers at the Oceanus.
Something that isn't alleged to exist...

And yet, from this brief total estrangement from her body, Faith rediscovers her true nature as Slayer and her redemption begins, to be continued in various episodes of Angel , a show where redemption is a more central theme. When she is first in Buffy’s body, she takes a bath that is clearly a form of perverse lovemaking, before pulling faces in a mirror and endlessly and mockingly repeating what she sees as Buffy’s mantra, ‘Because it’s wrong’, a phrase she also uses when sexually teasing Spike.
In their scene in ‘Once More With Feeling’, Xander and Anya sing aloud about the problems of their forthcoming marriage – ‘I’ll never tell’ – but neither of them confronts the possibility that there are too many issues in both their lives for a proposal in the heat of apocalypse to be desirably binding; their cheerful song includes an uncharacteristic discord on the lying phrase ‘coz there’s nothing to tell’. ) Xander fears that adulthood may sour him into a vicious drunk like his father and cannot vocalize those fears – his longing for a happy ending causes him to summon Sweet, thinking that singing and dancing come without she saved the world.

Inevitably too, it was the gloomily satisfying prelude to the show’s last season, like going through shadows to earn sunlight at the end. All of the characters, Buffy especially, have been on a Night Journey, and her journey ends with Dawn – with whom she starts the next season, teaching her to slay.
