What does the Watchers’ Council do?

We’re currently working our way through Season 3 of Buffy, and were in the middle of “Faith, Hope and Trick” this evening, when suddenly we wondered:

If there’s only one Slayer alive at a time (or in extreme circumstances, two), what do the rest of the Watchers actually do all day?

(It’s pretty poor that Giles, presumably the only Watcher who is actually Watching a Slayer, given that Faith’s Watcher has been horribly slaughtered, isn’t invited to their annual retreat.)

One thought on “What does the Watchers’ Council do?
