(Part 1)

Cover B

Renee keeps watch on the castle and talks Xander into asking her out on a date. Buffy spends the night with Satsu, and surprises herself at how much she enjoys their time in bed together; the two girls decide to keep their involvement a secret, but their cover is immediately blown by the arrival of Xander, Renee, Andrew, Dawn and Willow, who report the arrival of a gang of shape-changing, Japanese vampire goths at the castle walls. The undead creatures break into the castle with ease, shrugging off the Slayers’ defences before making off with Buffy’s scythe. Realising they have only one way of tracking the vampires and retrieving her mystical weapon, Buffy sends Xander to pay a visit to the one person he never wanted to see ever again…
