Cover B

Holding back the portal and the mass of invading demons, Willow’s strength begins to wane. Buffy and the Scooby gang take the fight to the monsters, only to be faced by the demons’ giant god-king, Kerberon. Luckily Dawn utilises her abilities as the Key, easily zapping the god into dust and sending his followers fleeing in terror. When Giles reports that the portal must be closed from the demons’ side, Dawn chooses to remain behind to close it, insisting that her sister and friends return home without her. Xander elects to stay with Dawn, and together they say their farewells. Safely home, a tearful Buffy wishes that D’Hoffryn and the High Council be able to deal with the Mistress and the Soul Glutton without her, so that she can concentrate on rescuing Dawn. Unseen behind them, the fake Anya uses her Vengeance Demon power to make Buffy’s wish come true – an act that will have terrible repercussions…
