Faith finds someone to depend on, only to find that person a liar. This compounds her distrust of others. Gwendolyn Post also reinforced Faith's feeling of distance from the rest of the gang.
Giles: I won't remind you that the fate of the world often lies with the Slayer. What would be the point? Nor shall I remind you that you've jeopardized the lives of all that you hold dear by harboring a known murderer. But, sadly, I must remind you that Angel tortured me... for hours... for pleasure. You should have told me he was alive. You didn't. You have no respect for me or the job I perform.
Oz: Sounds like we missed a lot of fun.
Xander: Then we're telling it wrong.
Willow: (about Angel) Well, he saved me from a horrible flamey death. That sort of makes me like him again.
Buffy: Let me guess. Gwendolyn Post - not a Watcher?
Giles: Yes she was. She was kicked out by the Council a couple of years ago for "misuses of dark power." They swear there was a memo.
Buffy: How are you?
Faith: Five by five.
Buffy: I'll interpret that as good.
When Buffy and Faith fight and crash through the window, they bring a fair amount of debris down on the floor with them that disappears when they get back up to resume fighting.
When Post puts on the glove and the claws begin to pierce her arm, you can see a puncture wound open up before the last claw actually digs itself in.
